Preparing for graduation??
since you say you'll be getting a tripod anyway, and you may need a telephoto, Old Nikon 300mm f/4.5 AIs are dirt cheap on eBay (going from between $100-$150 depending on condition). I almost got one for my future NEX-7 until I swooped in on a fantastic 300mm f/2.8. I couldn't resist.
