New to Nikon, went to the dark side after 35 years with C. Picked up a barely used D7500 with the 18-140 and 35mm DX. I shoot a variety of things from portraits, landscapes, and animals. Love the 35 mm, the kit lens is good, but I want better. Thinking of finding a used 18-60mm. Maybe a 70-300 to go along with it. Also, have considered a used 200-500mm. Thinking I want to stay with Nikon branded lenses. What do you think I should look at? TIA.


For the kit you have and for the wildlife that I like to shoot, my priority would be a 200-500 because IMHO you are a bit lacking on the long end.  If it's more important to have "better" than the kit lens, the 16-80 would probably be an improvement.  It really depends on your priorities and your budget.

What lenses did you use most on your previous cameras?
