Re: Which lenses?

I disagree, 35 is not wide enough and 35 to 50 is not that big of a difference. I have a 50mm 1.8, bought a 35 1.8 and returned it shortly after.

I would go with the 18-105 and 70-300.

Alternatively, a Sigma HSM OS 17-50 F2.8 and a 55-300 would run you in about the same price range (you can get the 55-300 likely on discount wiht the body), you would gain a better lens on the wide end but give up focus speed and build quality on the 55-300 vs the 70-300.

My set is a 18-55 and 55-300 wiht a 50mm 1.8 and 105 2.5 both AI-S manual focus primes. The old primes are a a great cheap way to get into that sort of thing. IMO
