New D80 18-135mm Kit Lens Question
Mar 24, 2007

I just received my Nikon D80 from B&H Photo with the 18-135mm kit lens. I had been borrowing a Nikon D70 with the 18-70mm kit lens prior to my purchase and noticed that my new lens seems to be slower than the lens from the D70. I'm wondering if this is due to the bigger range in the 18-135mm.. does it have more glass meaning that it needs more light? I'm not sure what to do now because I've been taking a lot of event photos where the lighting is not exactly the best but it worked fine with the D70's lens. Maybe I should have gotten the other D80 kit with the two lenses (18-55mm and 55-300mm I think)?

Also, what would be an affordable lens that I could get to use in low light situations?
