Talking New to Pixalo!

Hey there gang!

Joining up as a freshie today.

My name is Rachael and this year I started 'working' as a photographer. I've been doing kids portraits in a shopping centre and am about to start touring the forums for titbits about the best camera and lens to have.

I currently have a Nikon D80 (DX format) and have been using my 18-135 lens but want to find out what the best combination, and the best multipurpose lense actually is. I'm finding the one i have just not quite what i need. I can't get close enough to my subjects, and i'm working with kids.

I used a 24-70mm 2.8f for a wedding and LOVED it, but am so confused about what lense i actually need.

Anyways, enough of the rambling, but if you have some ideas and also places in Melbourne (or reputable online) places to get cameras, lenses, backdrops (vinyl and other) and shopping centre sets!

Cheers!
Rachael

Welcome to Pixalo Rachael

The 24-70 f2.8 will only be the equivalent of about 112mm at the long end - nowhere near the length you get with the 18-135. Good for weddings, but not so good for kids.

Check out a 70-200 f2.8 or 70-300 Nikkor vr which will be cheaper. However, you will be lacking in the wide end. Maybe the Tamron 18-270 will do everything you want.
