I have just upgraded to a D7000 with a 18mm to 105mm lens. I was going to keep my old 55mm - 200mm kit lens to use for now - but have had to sell it as a job lot with my old D40X.
My problem is that I really would like to have a larger zoom lens - it doesn't have to be fantastic - but something to get me a little closer to things when we go on holiday after Christmas.
The only other lens I have is the 90mm Tammy Macro which is fantastic - but obviously no good for any distance.
Any ideas please - I have $500 in the pot (which should really go towards the cost of the D7000) and could perhaps squeeze an extra few $100 - as long as hubbie doesn't go on this site!
