Okay, here's the deal. I'm saving up for a Nikon D50 kit. I'll be getting the kit with the 13-55mm zoom (I think) and a memory card (512MB). All together it comes to a little more than $700...I need $200 more pending a new job interview...and here I digress. Back on topic. I have some experience with 35mm SLR from a class at school I took, and the kit lens coming with the Nikon isn't very fast (can't remember the aperture range off the top of my head). I already know I'll want another lens soon after I buy the camera. Here's where I have a question. What should I get? I'm not very into wide angle at the moment. I only have experience with a 50mm lens from the cameras at school. I'm thinking about getting that ~$200 Nikon 50mm which is apparently their fastest lens right now. Anywho, I like close-up/macro (a little macro experience with my Coolpix 5000) to "normal" photography. My budget is below $400. I can't think of much else I can say that'd help you....I really like the Lens Babies. Oh yeah...I never asked a question :lmao: What lens do you recommend beyond the kit?
