Alright guys, I'm in a bit of a ditch right now. I really need to upgrade the lens on my D60. Currently I'm using the regular kit lens with is an f/3.5-5.6 18-55mm. As the D60 doesn't have a built-in AF motor (which sucks...next camera upgrade will be from Canon for sure) I'd prefer that the lens have a built in one instead. As for my preference on the lens here's a list of my styles. - It seems that it can get troublesome whenever I try to zoom in only to find out I can zoom in far enough... - I do/want to do portrait photography. Not the studio type of portraits but more of the documentary-like photos much like this one: 1x.com - Onexposure That might be a bad example but I hope you guys get the jist of what I'm aiming for. - I'm not really into macro photography but sometimes I'll be indirectly shooting a macro shot without actually noticing it (yeah I know...) and I'd really want to take a picture of an eye like this: Eye HDR 2 by ~ridethespiral1 on deviantART - I take a lot of architecture-like shots of buildings (especially when I go down to NYC every 1 or 2 weeks). - I occasionally shoot pictures of my friend outside so something that would help with quality? Anyways...those are just stuff I thought out of my head without actually analyzing it thoroughly but yeah, I'd really appreciate it if I can get some helpful insight. PLEASE!!! By the way, brand wise I'd prefer if it stays around Nikon & Sigma out of personal preference. My budget is from $100 - $400ish. I'm not looking for anything "pro" but something that helps me capture images just like those on http://1x.com more or less in the portrait section. Oh and if there's a decent Speedlite I should be looking into, then I'm all for it! By the way, I will be buying the stuff from B&H (not the online store, the retail in NYC) if that helps narrow anything down. Thanks!
