    I'm going to Peru in August and I want to go digital
    before then. I was wondering if you could recommend
    a body and some lenses. My budget is about 1200.
    I'm partial to Nikon. Thanks I appreciate it.

    On a more serious note. What are you going to take pictures of? Landscape or city

    Personally, a nice wide angle lens(12-24mm) would be awesome at machu picchu, for portraits i would just go for the nifty fifty(50mm f/1.8) which for Nikon i believe is around 115?

    But, I would just stick with the 18-200VR, its a good all around lens
