What should be in a Beginners Bag


I'm just getting into Digital Photography.

I've currently got :

  • an excellent condition Nikon D70 with only 2000 actuations.

  • an Nikon 18-105mm VR with Hood

  • a spare Nikon battery.

  • a 4GB 30mb/s Sandisk Compact Flash Card

  • a HOYA UV Haze Filter.

What other bits would you recommend to have in my bag? (when I buy a bag)

My inexperienced thoughts have me considering the following:

  • 50mm 1.8 or 35mm 1.8 ???

  • 70-300mm VR

I would like but am at a loss for which MACRO to go for ???

I read the 28-80mm is a great cheap lens that is great for Macro, but do I need it if I have the 18-105mm VR?

What else would you guys recommend & why?

Bearing in mind I'm totally new to this I don't want to spend too much (initially).
