Question Lens Selection Help

Hi everyone!

I currently own a Sony DSC-H2 and utilize all its manual modes to their fullest. Recently, as I have started to take more and more interest in photography, I've decided to make the move to DSLR.

I would like to go for a Nikon D90, which is an excellent camera (so far as reviews, and friends' opinions are concerned). The problem that I face is of lens selection. I am quite fond of macro photography, as well as landscape photography, and would like a lens each to befit these.

As far as the macro lens is concerned, I have settled for the Nikkor 105mm AFS Micro (and so on). But since I'm on a lower budget (No more than $2500 for camera and lenses), I have been unable to select a lens for landscape photography, preferably one that I can comfortably use for travel as well.

I plan to make the purchases in early July, and would like some opinions as soon as possible!

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Salman

Re: Lens Selection Help

Welcome to Pixalo Salmanarif

I've removed your link to the Sony site as the camera is no longer made and there are no details on the site. Up to two links to personal web sites can be put into your signature, but not in posts, please.

I think that a really good general purpose lens is the Nikkor 18-70, and in the UK you can buy them used for around 100.
