I am very excited friends, I just ordered by D50! I got it with no lenses for $310 shipped, think it was a decent deal?

I would like some suggestions for lenses for it. I am a novice so the technical specs about them still confuse me. I want to be able to do general shooting, sports, landscapes and also those nice closeups of flowers and such

Any suggestions to specific lenses within a decent budget is appreciated! As soon as you guys tell me whats good then ill buy it so I can start shoooting this weekend

Was it refurbished or brand new?

If on a budget then you can't go wrong with the 18-55 / 18-70 offered by Nikon. Couple this with the Sigma 70-300mm APO Macro and you are in good shape for little cash. This is what my kit started at and it produced many excellent pictures.

my kit is a "factory demo" it comes with a warranty so im not too concerned. I got it with the Tamron 28/80 and 70/300 lenses to start with. Im sure these are budget lenses but they will work while I learn Im very excited!
