Yep

Do some research before you buy anything. You need to find what fits YOUR needs.

Well in that case, I'm glad I can still get that 70-200. Too bad it's as much as the 7100. Probably won't get it for a while though.

thanks guys.

Yea i really tried not to have the odd overkill look you see in most. Not that i didn't view those options. Some do look interesting..

but i liked the natural look more. Is cool how much it can really bring out. I think i'll do it more now that i have the means to do it.

I think I've decided. (more than likely will change knowing me) D7100 body with 18-200mm lens bundle. Only reason I chose that lens is because my brother has it and I have seen some amazing pictures with it. That and I will save $250 if I buy it with the camera. Don't need to read any reviews for it. And no, I won't use it for moon shots. lol

Honestly, man. If not having to change lenses all the time makes you happy, then get that lens. Most will point out to you that you will honestly get better performance from having a lens for each job (tele/wide/normal/etc) and they will be right, but at the end of the day you have to get what is fitting for you. A lot of people value that one-lens-for-everything convenience over better IQ.

As you grow you'll realize what you need and don't need anyway. For now, just get a camera and lens and go shoot. Figure out what you like as you go.

True. If I had the money, I would get that 70-200mm and an 85mm. But for now, I just wanted to get one for basic stuff until I get the money to get everything. I know the 18-200 won't do a lot, but my brother has taken some sweet pictures with his. I might throw in a 50mm f1.8 since they aren't expensive and do nice pictures as well.

I've heard it's really nice. It just doesn't have the VR in it. You will also get a few more mm (technically) out of it using it on a DX camera because of the crop factor.

On another note I talked to a dealer the other day looking for a 70-200 and he told me he offered a guy $1200 for the new 70-200 VR II Nikon lens and he wanted $1400 for it. It was only 3 months old and he didn't get it. I was like wtf, I would have paid that in a second for it. Hell even at $1400 he would have made $400 selling it, easily.

Very true! A tripod fixes a lot. lol

Yeah, I don't know what he was thinking. Around here those lenses and the VR I disappear in days not weeks. Sometimes hours.

Chaz is right on here. I have a Nikon D300 with Nikkor 18-70mm and 70-300mm VR lenses, BUT, I am enjoying my time more often with my Fuji X100S with it's fixed lens. Makes you move to compose the image, and gets you more involved in the capture of the image. This is a nice hobby for me and I enjoy that part/challenge of it because the rewards are worth it.

My advice (if someone could not choose what lens to get) would be to just get the body and a single prime. Either 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 if you're full frame or more likely, if you're going with a crop sensor, either the 35mm f/1.8 or the 50mm f/1.8

The only time I would recommend this is if you REALLY cannot make up your mind on what to buy, because at the end of the whole learning experience, I can almost guarantee that if you stick with photography you will definitely keep that prime lens for the long haul. And even if you don't, you can sell them for hardly any loss. They are just a simple, cheap, staple of a kit and it's a no brainer that you're going to get one someday anyway. may as well get a sure thing rather than a maybe of a lens that you might end up having to sell for a better/different one anyway.

Get the D7100 and the 50mm, man. You won't regret it. There are always more lenses to buy.

You can also rent lenses (and bodies and flashes) from places that will ship you the gear. If you want to try something out and get your hands on it before you buy, rent!

I did this. I rented the sigma 70-200 F2.8. It was a great way to get a lens and see if i like it. (I really did like it)
