Hello folks I'm new around here and new to the Nikon world.
I have very little experience in photography but just enough to know I really like it. I'll be ordering my first DSLR in the next few days and after many many hours of research and flip flopping on my short list, I've decided on the D80.
I will be getting the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR for sure for my hiking adventures in the mountains and such. But my question is, what recommendations do you folks suggest as a second every day lense of excellent quality?
