I can't stand it any longer. I am just about ready to pull the trigger and buy a:
Nikon D90 body only, a 50 mm f1.8D AL lens, and a 18-200 mm 3.5-5.6G AF-S ED VRII lens.
Should I do it? Should I buy different lens? (Here is my thinking.)
I just can't wait any longer for the new/revised/updated D700 which is the camera that I REALLY want. So, I figure, go ahead and buy the D90 along with the 50mm and the 18-200 mm zoom NOW. Use them; get familiar with the D90; etc.
THEN, when the updated D700 comes out, buy it! Plus one or two really good lens, of undecided specs.
The 50 mm lens will automatically work with the D70, and the 18-200 mm Zoom will work, sort of. At least I will not have put out too much money for things that I really won't be using with the D700upgrade.
The zoom gives me a reasonable range of focal lengths, albeit not with a really good wide aperture lens. The 50 mm will give me a reasonable portrait lens when you figure in the crop factor for the dx frame size on the D90.
(I would hope to get the D700 upgrade in about a year or so from now; finances willing.)
This decision, btw, was prompted by comments Jonnyapple made a couple of months ago. I hope I won't regret it. Hey, if I do regret it, I can always blame Jonnyapple....
So, should I buy this outfit? Should I get some other lens combination? What do you guys think?
If you think it is a good set of products, I am ready to push the "buy" button.
I assure you that I am ready to do that today.
Thanks for any advice,
