Re: New D5100 replacing D40... lens questions

In bright sunlight the 16-85 VR is a fine lens. Pair it with a 70-300 VR and you will be good to go for most situations. Because of the Thailand floods, you may have to go with the 18-55 VR or something else until Nikon makes some.

You may like the 2.8 for other reasons

The 35 1.8 makes a quick shooter on the D5100. You may also choose from the 50 1.8 & the 85 1.8. 3 nice primes for not much money.
