Nikon D5300 - with or without 18-55 lens?
7 months ago

I am about to pull the trigger on the Nikon D5300 and I am trying to decide if the 18-55 lens is worth the extra $100.  I am planning on purchasing the Sigma 18-250 lens with the camera.  AM I better saving the money or getting the lens.

This is my first DSLR.  I used SLR's (film) a number of years ago.  Lately I have been using point & shoot.  My newest P&S is the Canon SX230 with 14x Optical Zoom.  I find myself using the zoom a significant amount of the time.

Most of my pictures are of architecture, landscapes, and wildlife (birds & animals).  Some examples would be pictures of sloths, birds, the beach, architecture, and sunsets in Central America.  I have an upcoming trip to Italy that I will be the first vacation with a DSLR camera.

If anyone has a recommendation of where to get the best price from an authorized dealer please let me know.
