Cheap/good FF Kit Style Zoom Lens
2 months ago

I have decided to move to a D600 or D610. Since I don't use Macro, I will initially have the following FX lenses:  50mm F1.8 AFd, 70-200 F2.8 VR1 and a Tamron 70-300 VC. For UW, I'll eventually get something but it is not a priority.

I would expect that 80% of my shots will come with those lenses. Because I love my V1 for "walking around" and family photos, I don't want to spend a lot of money for a "kit zoom" right now.

I had two ideas:

1) Keep the 18-200mm from my D7000 and use the D600 in DX mode.

2) Supplement the 50 mm with an inexpensive, used FX zoom. Ideas?
