i've been lurking for a bit and finally decided to sign up.


I just picked up my first DSLR (D90) with a couple of 'consumer' lenses
55-200 and a 35mm/1.8 . I'm finding the transition from panasonic fz28 pretty smooth.
Between that and a manual sony p&s i've been controlling
my cameras for a few years now but decided to take the plunge to a real
camera :)

Anyways...kudos to all here who unknowingly helped me choose the D90.

Hey Dale. Interesting choice on the lenses! Did you consider a cheap 18-55 as well to get the wider part covered?

I went with the 35 1.8 primarily beacuse I like to have something to shoot the kids indoors...without flash.

I thought about the 18-55, yes.

I think I may look to pick up a 16-85 to cover the wide shots...once my wallet quits burning :)

Hey Dale, I'm glad that you've signed up! You certainly won't regret it! :)

By the way, if I'm not mistaken, Nikon makes 2 Nikkor 55-200 DX lenses. I'm pretty sure that the major difference is that one has the VR feature, and one does not. Which one do you have?
