Re: FX lenses recommendations?

I would suggest getting the kit lens if you can get a good deal. It may not be the ultimate best at anything, but it is excellent value, sharp enough for 90% of uses, one of the most useful, and reasonably compact for a FX zoom. And much cheaper than anything else, and covers from pretty wide angle to a good portrait length. You wont miss many shots while you get the hang of your new camera. Throw in the 50 to get a play with shallow DOF shooting (get the D version if you want a really compact, lightweight, sharp and very cheap lens - good for video too, as you can change aperture on the fly with the aperture ring).

Do a load of shooting with these two excellent value lenses, and then you will know whether you need to buy more primes or more expensive zooms
