Hi all. I've searched for the answer to my question. Got some good ideas but I'd still like some feedback if possible. I'll try to be as specific as possible.
I'm a musician and do a tiny bit of web design. I wanted to buy a good compact to make my own images for web so I bought a Fuji X10 to get me going. Now I've been totally bitten by photography and would like to take it a step further. I'll keep my X10 as it's easy to carry around everywhere and has helped me learn so much.
I'm going to buy a D7000. I'd like to get body only and buy 2 lenses, a prime and a zoom. I seem to like 28-36mm a lot. Over 50% of my shots are in this range.
I'd like to get a 20/24mm prime to do some street shots. Something small and light.
With that I'd like a versatile zoom. I don't need it to be super long but good quality would be nice.
My budget for both lenses would be about 1200euro aboslute tops......maybe a tad more ;)
Here's what I'm thinking about. A 24mm prime would give me about 36mm equivalent on a DX as far as I know. The 35mm might be a bit tight on a DX based on the pictures I've been taking.
What I'm looking at:
Nikon 20mm AF f/2.8D
Nikon 24mm AF f/2.8D
Nikon 35mm AF f2D
Nikon 35mm AF-S DX f/1.8G
Nikon 18-55mm AF-S DX f/3.5-5.6G VR
Nikon 18-200mm AF-S DX f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II

I don't know if I'm on the right track here. Any suggestions or comments or links would be very welcome folks.
