I've done some lurking on this site before and have really enjoyed reading camera and lens reviews. I'm a newbie to the forums.
I'll cut to the chase. In my bag currently:
18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens
50mm 1.8G prime lens
Do I have any gaps that anyone sees based on what I have so far? I'd like to have the most versatility in my bag. Should I be considering adding a lens or switching one out?
I'll give a bit of background in terms of my photography usage: I've been shooting for about a year now. My goal of photography is to document my life with my family for the most part, and turn this into more of a "serious hobby" than just the token family member with the nice camera. whether that be portraits during family events or scenic portraits from our family vacations I just want to have versatility in my bag.
My husband and I have our first child on the way in March (which I'm excited to shoot my newest subject!) and I'll generally be using camera for that purpose, at least for foreseeable future. Right now I've been primarily shooting family portraits and photographing our yellow lab, given that I'll be a stay-at-home mom soon I may find that I'll have more time to vary my photography - which I welcome because I also want to get more accustomed to shooting sports/action photos. My husband and I are both avid golfers and like going to sporting events so having the ability to get action shots when necessary would be nice too. We are headed to Hawaii in a few weeks for a "babymoon" so if there's any advice on lenses to take too that would be appreciated! Debating whether or not to bring my entire camera bag and give up my other carry-on
Given this info - any advice on my current tool belt would be greatly appreciated, whether that be upgrades, adding or deleting lenses. I'm pretty well set for now on my D5100 as body, really have liked what it produces.
