See Lowell's reply.

If you're still stuck on what to pick up, grab the Tamron 28-75 f2.8. You can't go wrong with this lens. It has a habit of gluing itself to your camera body watch out

Where To Buy?

I could provide some URLs to German stores but have never used them. Why not purchase here on the forum? I have dealt with great sellers like jsherman999 and yungcheng -- real photographers with a passion for what they are doing.

What To Buy?

There are two approaches to this: get lenses that open up new photographic opportunities or get lenses that improve on what you already like to do. I think the former strategy makes more sense until you have a fair range covered.

The DA16-45mm f/4 will replace your kit lens as a general walk around with superior quality plus provides 2mm more at the wide end than anything you currently have. You might find that addictive. I don't miss the extra stop the DA* would provide. $250

The Vivitar Series 1 105mm f/2.5 or similar will give you a lot longer focal length than you have now. Plus it is an incredibly sharp 1:1 macro. It's manual focus and has an insanely long throw so you can fine-tune those close-ups. $400

These are my two favourite lenses and the prices reflect what you can grab them for here.

I would like to buy from this forum, because lensis are quite expensive in Estonia
Tamron AF 28-75mm F2,8 XR DI cost $600
