I'm budgeting myself $1k for a camera/lens combo. I shoot a variety of subjects, but I enjoy land/city/seascapes the most.
I already own a 35mm f/1.8 lens, but that's all. I've been shooting on my partner's D3100 for a couple of months while I'm getting to know the ropes of photography, but now I'm moving to Cairns alone for work for 4 months and need a companion to take with me on the road to cover various situations.
I'll also be buying grey.
I'm pretty set on the D7000 body - I think it's all I will ever need until I upgrade to FX. That comes in around 690 at .
I've got two lens picks for the time being:
-Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 ($336)
- Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM ($325)
The other option I'm considering is a 18-55 and 55-200 kit lens package, which is just within budget.
Id love to know if you have any suggestions or comments on the combos I've selected.
