I guess Santa forgot this kiddo put a 'Nikon DSLR' on her list and has come back to stuff it in her stocking ! My fiance rang from Boston to tell me he went and ordered a Nikon D50 package from Cameta Cameras ( he disregarded Ebay and rang them direct... He got the kit lens 18-55mm, which I havent heard rave reviews about...and I asked him what the other lens was, which they included in the package, and he couldnt think of it offhand...said that it was something- 300 ( at least he thinks that was it...). Now I have done a search and all I've come up with is this : 70-300mm f/4-5.6G. I have googled for reviews and all I seem to read about it is that it isnt that good at all. I'm thinkin of getting him to call Cameta and asking them how good a deal they can give him for the Nikon D50 body and an 18-70mm lens.... We're going to Europe soon and I want to get some shots of the country, some landscapes ...as well as my regular style of photography; street photography/people. Is it better to just swap the two lens they're giving us and ask for the 18-70mm ? Advice would be awesome !
