    I'm gonna be making some purchases soon.. Please rank these in what you believe to be the order of importance for me...

    My current setup: Nikon D80 w/ 18-70 lens

    Things i'm considering:

    good camera bag (Burton Zoom is current fav.)
    70-300G lens
    50mm 1.8
    extension tubes
    flash
    filters (ND, polarizer, etc)
    battery pack add on (thing that looks like a film advance motor)

    or, anything else?


    thanks!

    50mm 1.8
    SB-600 flash
    Extra battery, vertical grip not necessary unless you really want it, and don't mind that it adds substantial size to your camera

    no the human eye sees at about 17mm. the 50mm on a DSLR is about a 75mm lens.

    I like my 17-55mm f/2.8 for indoor stuff, since it focuses closer. And it's wider.
