I may get both the 16-45 and the kit lens to see which I like best. At their current pricepoint, I could probably resell either on ebay without taking much of a loss.

The variable zoom lenses that are recommended seem very reasonably priced.... LBA already kicking in. :)

Now, what flash to buy???

[QUOTE=OniFactor;263366]i'd say go with the kit lens. for what you're doing, the extra boost in IQ from the 16-45 will not be beneficial for the cost paid, and you'll risk slipping into LBA too quickly, lol.

LBA??? Best Guess: Lens Buying Addict?

The weather sealing and the in-body IS was a big selling point. Seems like the most camera for the money to me.... one that will give me room to grow as a photographer.

This will be my first DSLR and I'm sure that the learnig curve will be fairly steep. I plan on taking pictures of my family and my son playing sports (youth soccer, football and basketball) as well as experimenting with nature shots and still life.

I'm trying to decide if I should I go with the kit lens or the 16mm-45mm f/4 lens that currently has the $100 rebate. What's the difference in picture quality of the two lenses? I hear that the kit lens is pretty good.

Once I get the hang of things, I plan on getting a larger zoom (probably some in the 200mm range). What would be the recommendation on a (variable) zoom lens?

Thanks in Advance.

[QUOTE=ftpaddict;262610]Welcome to the forums! And I'm 99% sure that the Georgia you are referring to is located within the United States, and not the country itself.


When she begins her post with "hey", you know it's southern US... the only thing she left out is "y'all". :)

Newbie here. I've been lurking on your board for a few days and decided to give it a whirl. I am about to purchase my first DSLR and have pretty much decided that the K200D is going to be the one. I plan on asking some questions on the main forum.
