If you could have one affordable lens....
Sep 6, 2010

Been a happy D60 user for about 2 years. I had the 18-55mm kit lens along with the 55-200vr and wasn't ever really pleased with the picture quality.

I bought the 35mm 1.8f and it was like a brand new camera. Picture quality immediately became much much better... colors were more clear, much more sharp, just a much better lens. So good that I've abandoned my 2 zooms and they haven't been attached to my camera in over a year.

I'm planning on buying the D90 replacement, D7000, when it comes out. Been waiting very patiently.

I need a decent zoom lens... My 35mm prime spoiled me. I missing having 18mm for wide shots. I need something sharp and useful. I don't really care for superzooms. I rented the 1st gen 18-200 and it was "ok" - I don't do a lot of shooting over 85mm.

The specs and size of the Tokina 16-50 f/28 look great, but the reviews are so-so and say the CA is very very bad.

So what would you guys do? Need to keep it under 1,000 bucks.
