Have Nikon D40 w/kit lens...what next?
7 months ago

Hi all! So I inherited a Nikon D40 with the kit lens back in November. I have always enjoyed seeing great photographs, but I never explored the idea of taking great photographs. Since getting this camera I've been addicted! I have been learning as much as I can (through youtube videos mostly) about taking photos and then using Light Room to touch them up afterwards. - I don't have Photoshop (yet).

So now I am looking for some advice as to what lens or lenses I should consider next. I have been using my camera for landscapes, wildlife, and on the streets in the city. I hike a lot and always bring it with me. I'd like to spend $1200 or less for now, and I'd rather go for quality rather than quantity.

Thank you for you time!
