Buying the Nikon D50 dSLR.

Will be using the camera for mostly nature photography - beach scenes and macro (shells, butterflies, etc.).

There are several options available to me:
* body only (purchase lens (which ones???) separately),
* two lens kit - body with 18-55mm and 55-200mm, or
* one lens kit - body with 28-90mm.

Any recommendations/advice would be greatly appreciated!!

How about 18-55 kit and a macro lens?

I agree 18-55 and a macro sounds good.

If you can get it the Nikon 18-200 VR has a decent macro and range but its pricey

I would stay away from the 28-80 lens, it's not wide enough with D50.

If you live in the US, checkout Cameta on eBay for different packages on the D50:

A good combination for starters is the 18-55 kit and the Sigma 70-300 DG APO. The Sig APO has a nice macro.


Good Luck!
