Heya. I've never owned a DSLR but have been wanting one for a long time. I spent quite a bit of time researching back and forth and for the most part it seems my best bet would be to go with a lower end model and then spend the rest of my money on lenses, so having said that I believe I'm either going to get the d3100 or d5000. I'm going to wait for the 3100 to hit stores so I can go play with it and decide for sure if I do like it better than the 5000. Anyway. I assume my best bet for this camera would be AF-S lenses. That aside, there are 3 basic things that I want from whatever lenses I decide to buy. 1) A very good wide angle. Maybe even super wide. I have been looking at the Nikon 10-24 f/3.5. This seems like a very well rated lens that will produce overall crisp pictures throughout the frame, taking into account I will not be using a full frame camera. I want to mainly use this for interior shots of houses and for landscape photography. Due to suggestion below also looking at the Tamron 11-16 f/2.8. 2) A FAST lens. For this I was looking at the 50mm f/1.4 or the 35mm f/1.8. I would like to use this for indoor photography without a flash, as well as maybe portraits. 3) A decent zoom with fast glass for night photography. Edit: Looking at likely the Nikon 80-200 f/2.8. I would like any comments or recommendations for lenses. I would like to be able to for example take night shots of the local softball games (some type of zoom with fast glass), take wide sweeping landscape shots, and have a lens with good bokeh that can be used up close. I'm also looking for a lens that can be used without flash in a night time city setting without a tripod. I'm thinking the 50mm would be able to handle this. I know I'm asking for a lot here but if you have any suggestions other than what I listed here please by all means.. Edit: Updated some of my lens picks due to suggestion.
