Hello Everyone. I am beginner as far a DSLRs are concerned. I have finally managed to save enough money to buy myself an entry level DSLR plus a couple(hopefully) of decent lenses to start my photography life.
My budget is around USD 1,000 though I can stretch it USD 1,200 (Max). My initial research here, talking with people and in general has helped me to narrow down to D5100 as my preferred choice.
The next big decision I have to make is about the lenses. I would request you all to suggest me possible lenses. I have been recommended 50 mm Prime and 18-105mm. What are your views on these ?
What does equipment would I need to budget for ? Tripod stand, Bag ? and how much ?
Would it makes sense for me to look for a second hand camera and invest more into lenses?
Should I also be budgeting for Software such as Lightroom ?
It would be really great if you could help me as how to go about making decision regarding these.
