Hi everyone, I just joined the forum. Let me introduce myself. I am a 18 year old college student that has just taken an interest in photography after finding out that my digital Sony Cybershot takes very crummy pictures, especially after trying to get some action shots of my dog. She's the main subject of my photography. I really know nothing about photography but I'd first like to get a camera! My choices were the Nikon D60 or Canon Xsi but after visiting the shop and feeling the cameras and playing with the buttons, I've decided that I like the D60 more. If anyone has any other camera suggestions I'd love to hear it! I also need a lens, and I don't plan on getting the 18-55mm lens that could be a preset package from Nikon. I mostly take wildlife shots, shots of my dog and especially need a lens that is suitable for action shots (dog running, jumping) preferably from quite a far distance as well. I was told that a 18-200 mm Nikkor lens would suit my needs? I like more vibrant/punchy colors in my photos by the way. I probably will take a few landscapes but not many portraits at all. Which lens should I get? For now I'd like to get only 1 just because I don't have the funds to get 2.
