I'm a learner photographer hoping to one day make my living from photography. I'm currently using the D5000 which came with two zoom lenses. I recently went to purchase a prime lens and nearly passed out at the price! Particularly the difference between the price of the AF-S lenses compared to AF.
I guess before I sink a whole lot of money in to lenses (which I know will have to be done) I'd like some advice on whether I should persevere with my D5000 and buy the AF-S lenses - or cut my losses and replace the body for one that uses AF lenses.
Which lenses do you find better?
