    Hello , I could really use some advice . I'm getting ready to purchase a new camera and think I'm set on the Nikon 750.
    I will be shooting portrait , landscape and night skies mostly . Which lenses should I purchase with my camera? There are lots of different packages online and I'm confused. I am an amature but hope to take my skills to the next level with my new camera and want the right lenses . Thank you in advance!

    Since you didn't mention budget, AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm F2.8G ED, AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G or AF DC-NIKKOR 105mm f/2D would be three options.

    I use my Nikon D750 for portraits and event photography.
    90% of my portraits is done with my Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 VC
    In a very tight space I will use my Nikon 24-70mm 2.8G
    If you have these two zoom ranges in constant f2.8 you covered yourself for most the needs.
    These lenses are very sharp and well made, real professional work horses.

    Another option for portrait is Nikon 85mm 1.8G or Nikon 105mm 2.8G, either one will do an excellent job but I personally would go with the 85mm lens

    Thank you for the responses. I found the Tamron 70-200mm 2.8VC for around $575 online so I think I'll go with this one.

    You're not giving us much to work with, and then you reject the advice given.

    Keep in mind that it can be a very difficult lens to use as your one and only lens, especially for things like landscapes. It is strictly a telephoto lens—no wide-angle, not even standard focal lengths. Just for reference, most smartphone cameras use a lens that gives about the same field of view as a 28mm, or thereabouts, would give on a D750.
    So if you pick up that lens only to start with, know that if you need a wider angle of view, you need another lens.

    If you're buying a D750, get the kit that includes the 24-120 f/4 VR. It's wide enough for landscape and night skies and long enough for portraits. The constant f/4 is plenty fast with that body and the VR will also help. Use that lens until you figure out exactly what you need and go from there.

    That sounds unreasonably cheap... I'd be wary of that deal.
