I have a Nikon D5000 with an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 kit lens and an AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm 1:4.5-5.6 lens. Both have done me good so far...I took some great safari shots using the 70-300, as well as a couple of good ones of the Forth Rail bridge last week. Also taken a few other pictures that I'm really happy / proud of. However my question is...are the lenses enough? By that I mean, is the kit lens an ideal, everyday lens, or should I now be looking at getting something else? I like to take landscape shots, as well as animals / wildlife, both from near and far. I’d like to have a foray into the world of macro photography. My main concern is that I don’t want to go out and spend a huge amount of money on a couple of lenses when I may not really use them. I am also looking into a tripod...I know, still haven’t bought one yet! So, any suggestions on the lens question and any suggestions on a tripod would be good. Again,as with the lens, I don’t really want to re-mortgage the house for the tripod & lens(es). Similarly, I don’t want to scrimp on them only to find that I need to get rid after a while...I know, I don’t want much do I!!!! As I say, your advice and comments will be gratefully appreciated.
