Re: What would be a good basic lens collection?

You have two good lenses now. I wouldn't add any more until you've used these two a while. After a while you'll find out for yourself what you need.

There is no good answer to your question because what makes up a good lens collection depends on many things such as what you prefer to shoot, what is your budget, how fussy are you in terms of image quality, is size and weight important, do you prefer zooms or primes or a combination of both, do you like the idea of an all-in-one lens?

Each of us has to determine what's important to us and buy accordingly. For example the weight of my gear has become important to me as I get older so I go for light weight cameras and lenses.
