Hello. I am somewhat new to photography yet obviously new to this forum. I enjoy taking pictures of wildlife yet have a granddad who takes pictures and videos weddings and events of that nature. He recently gave me a Nikon D100 and it came with an 18-85mm lens (not sure if thats right but its close enough). For Christmas I want a lens that can take pictures of objects up close and one that can zoom in on objects from far away. Someone told me a Nikkor 70-300mm lens would be good for zooming in from far away so I did a search and found this http://www.ritzcamera.com/product/541532883.htm Would this be a nice lens to zoom in on objects from far away??? I also wanted the lens that could zoom in pretty close on objects so I found this http://www.ritzcamera.com/product/541533329.htm Would this be a good lens to get pretty close to an object??? I cant get a macro lens since they are too expensive for me right now. Thanks for looking. I think this forum is way better than the other one im on ( alot more active) sooooo talk to you all later!
