I'm going to order a D7000 tonight, it will be my first DSLR. I've been lucky enough to play with a D300s in the past so its not all completely new to me. But that was always with nikon glass.
I'm planning on getting the kit lens (18-105mm) and a 50mm 1.8G, a bag and either kenko extension tubes or a Tamron 70-300mm 4/5.6 macro lens. Budget limits me to one or the other at the moment.
Its a cheap lens but I have seen a few people get pretty good shots out of it, so to start with it looks like an OK value for money lens. Overtime I'd look to replace it though.
The extra focal length may be handy as well for dog shots etc, although I don't think its great at longer focal lengths.
On the other hand the extension tubes would be a keeper, at least until I bought a dedicated macro lens.
Considering the time of year etc what would you go for? Would you totally ignore the cheap Tamron? With a couple of other little bits it comes to about £1400, would you spend it differently?
Any advice welcome,
