The new kit is:
Nikkor 18-105mm, f/3.5-5.6 kit lens
Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 FX format lens (FoV equivalent of a ~450mm lens at full zoom, which has been awesome)
Tamron 90mm prime f/2.8 macro lens
I’m looking around for a used wide, fast prime too, but I don’t have one yet.
Edit: I almost forgot about my old 55-200mm f/4.0-5.6, which is pretty much redundant now. I guess it’s good as a lighter weight solution when I don’t want to carry the 70-300, which is a beast.
Plama, I have the 35mm ?1.8, and it is a very clean, sharp lens, but Sleeping is quite right about the equivalent value. Clearly your 18-105 is wider, but Nikon has never packed a kit with a “fantastic” lens. I feel like I’m a victim of unrequited “lens envy”, as my budget doesn’t allow for either a full frame camera, or a wide lens below 18mm.
Yeah, that sounds about right. I picked up a cheap vivitar 28mm f/2.5 at my local camera shop. I love it for star shots and indoors, but the optical properties aren’t great wide open (coma like none other). It does have truly excellent color reproduction, though. I figure that it’s the best I can do on my current budget.
