    Right now I'm using a Nikon D90 with a really not so great 18-55mm kit lens & a SB 900 flash. I really want to upgrade my wide angle lens but I just don't have the $700 for the lens I want.

    Thanks Doug I am also using a Nikon D90 with the camera kit (18-55mm & the 55-200mm lens) & a Nikon SB-600 speed light flash.

    The pro photographer in breckenridge, David Carter Pfau of breckenridge photographic, tells me there are three basic (amature) lens everyone should have. The 35mm, the 70-300mm (NOT the 55-300mm with the plastic mount) & the 16-85mm. I still need the 16-85mm. I just don't want to spend $685 right now plus, if I get one for myself, I probably need to buy a second one for my wife. I also shoot almost exclusively in apatite mode. In bright noon time sun I'll use a tiffin 812 filter to take the glare off concrete/rocks & add definition to the sky & clouds. It's helped talking with David & getting some pointers on the little things I can do to improve my photography. When I look @ my shoots, I still have a long way to go but, I've improved quite a bit since starting with the D40 back in '09.

    Thanks for the tips. I purchased the Nikon DX 55-300 mm VR Len on sale from Amazon about three months ago and it is very hard to use sometimes not as great as the reviews from Amazon in my opinion.

    Thanks also for the filter advice.

    I have a Nikon D5000 that I purchased last year that I really enjoy. I looked for the 16-85 lens but couldn't find it cheap enough and wound up getting a realy good deal on the 18-105 lens. I wanted the flexability of just a touch more zoom without having to switch the lens all the time. Now, that I've taken a few more photography courses, the next couple purchases will be a fixed focal length lens. I shoot in aperature mode most of the time as I continue to learn.

    I have the same lens but I don't use it much. I only use it for extremely long telephoto shots. I'm usually shooting action shots that I want close in detail so I have to use my monopod otherwise nothing is clear. I wouldn't use it freehand normally.
