and answer all the same questions that I'm sure get asked all the time here. But here goes: I'm really wanting to take the plunge and get into digital photography. I know very little about photography, but I have played around with an old Minolta x700 that I bought 10 years ago quite a bit. I've been looking around and researching online and what I THINK I'd like to get is a Nikon D80. I can't afford the REALLY nice cameras but I do want something that will produce good results. What do you guys think about the D80? I understand that the most important factor is lenses. I have a wide range of interests as far as subject matter and I'm pretty sure I can't afford lenses for all of them right now. So, could I get a VERY basic summary of which kinds of lenses are good for what purpose? For example; What would I need to take photos of insects? What for Landscapes? What for nude figure? What for more distant things, such as bald eagles? I know these are very basic questions and the answers are out there, but it can be a bit overwhelming for a newbie such as myself to read through all the tech info on the internet. Especially, when I don't understand all of the jargon associated with the hobby yet. Also, I see a WIDE range of prices for the same cameras online. I'm assuming all of the "great" deals are not so great. Is B&H Photo the best place to buy new? I'll probably shop around locally and see if I can find a deal on a used camera, but if that fails I'll probably order online. Thanks for any help!
