I just purchased a D80 yesterday. I have the 18-135 kit lens, but as a newbie, I am not sure what else to purchase. My main interest at this point is photographing cars. My husband and I attend a lot of antique car shows so I know this is where most of my time will be spent using the camera. I did purchase the SB600 flash. Any advice is appreciated.

Well, to be honest you do not need to spend money unnecessary if there is no need to. A good Tripod would be nice. I say for now just get to know your camera more before anything else.

Don't spend any more money yet--use it for a while and you'll find out for yourself what you need.

Exactly right, all of us love buying new 'toys' for our cameras however if you just buy something now because you think you need it you will probably make a mistake. Spend some time learning the camera and working out what you are not able to capture the shot or what is causing problems for you. You have a good starting point so get out there and enjoy it!!!

Happy shooting.
