Hi there, I'm relatively new to the photography world. I got my first SLR a couple of months back and since then I've bought the nikkor 50mm f/1.8. Now, along with the lagging kit lens, I want to expand my collection with a much needed telephoto. Trouble is, I don't know what I want, or what I need for that matter. I have under nine hundred bones to throw at it. Now I know what macro means and what it achieves, but I don't know what it means to me, in a sense that I don't know what I need. I'm thinking I need a telephoto for nature, icebergs, a few concerts, an maybe the odd mtb race. So maybe I do need a macro for this. I pulled these off another thread which losts all compatible lenses for D40's. AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ~ $500 AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8D ED-IF < can't find a price??? (I'm gussing this is a pricy one) 50-500mm f/4.0-6.3 EX DG ~ $1000 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM ~ $650 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro ~ $900 80-200mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro < can't find a price??? 80-400mm f/4-5.6 EX OS ~ $1100 Also, the tamron sp af 70-200mm F/2.8 Di macro wouldn't by chance be left out of this list? It seems like a good lens for the price, but I doubt it would be compatible with my camera.
