Which lenses should I get? D7000 Kit= 18-105mm & 70-300mm (OR) D7000 & 18-200mm
I am gonna get the new D7000 and was wondering if you think I should get:
Can you please give me your honest advice and suggestion of which of the following bundles is better to go with:
-D7000 Kit w/ "AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR"
-AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED
-AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II
*** The reason that I am asking you this is because someone mentioned the following to me:
"I would not recommend the 18-200 lens. The 18-200 (or any zoom that covers a 10x or greater range) is
like a Swiss Army Knife; a lot of tools in 1 package but none of the tools work really well. You would not fix
a car with a Swiss Army Knife, you would use separate tools like in a craftsman tool set.
When a lens tries to cover such a big range, it is generally mediocre through out the entire range. I know it means you
will not need to change lenses if you use the 18-200.
You will have better quality optics and a longer range if you were to get the D7000 with the 18-105vr and then get the 70-300vr ."
I was originally going to get the "D7000 BODY" and "18-200mm" but now I am not sure.
Also, would you suggest the "SB-700" or "SB-900" for the flash?
Can you please give me your thoughts?
