    hello everyone,

    if i were to buy a nikon d90 with an 18-105vr lens, should i go ahead and get the 70-300vr lens also? i like doing landscapes, people, and macro but at the moment have a lumix fz50 and am ready to upgrade.

    the d90 kit with the 18-105 here costs €990.00
    the d90 kit with both lenses costs €1390.00

    how do i know if the lenses are vr series 1 or 2?

    thanks for the help,
    robert

    Body only plus Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 and Nikon 70-300 VR or Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 would be my vote.

    For the Nikon 70-300mm it only has the VR symbol on the side of the box, but in the manual it states that it's VRII.

    thanks brian, i wasn't sure how to tell. it's not a macro lens though, but i have seen some at good prices.

    @photoxopher - i'm checking out some prices right now for those.

    i don't really have a budget... i have a wife!

    :lol:

    I agree with PhotoXopher's suggestion on the Sigma 18-50 f/2.8. I have one and it's great. Just make sure you get the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM Macro Autofocus version. It's the latest version of that lens (I think there's like 4 or 5 previous versions) and much better than the previous versions.
