Hi, Sorry if this has already been covered. I read the general lens article which was great, but I'm still a bit puzzled due to lack of knowledge at this point and don't want to make the wrong decision.
I have a Nikon D5100 which I bought with the Nikkor 18 - 55 mm lens as part of a package. I'm only an enthusiastic beginner and I'm keen to practise as much as possible as I love it, but I'm just not very clued up yet!
I'm finding the lens is restrictive when trying to zoom and really, at this point, would like a lens which gives more zoom but covers most of the other aspects a beginner needs, so a good all rounder. I was recommended the 18 - 200mm lens by a friend, but after reading the article and other's I'm not sure which. I'm probably easily confused
As I said, I know it was covered in the general lens article and sorry for my ignorance, but I'd really very much appreciate being pointed in the right direction.
Many thanks for any advice anyone can give!
