    So I dont post here much, tend to lurk more often than not.

    But i need some opinions from you guys...

    I have a D70 w/ kit lens, and Im looking to purchse the following:

    -Flash
    -Wide Angle Lens
    -Telephoto Lens

    Most of my shooing thus far have been architechural/landscape and some random shots while walking around. I want to take some portrait shots as well.

    So what do u recommend I buy for what I've just described?

    Flash SB-600 or SB-800 you can use both wirelessly with your camera!:bigthumb:

    Wide Angle... I use Nikkor 12-24 F/4 I am partial to Nikon Glass

    Telephoto... 70-300VR F/4.5-5.6 on teh cheap or 70-200 VR F/2.8 if you have the coin.

    Sigma 10-20mm lens. i think you can pick it up for a little more than 450. totally worth it IMO. It hardly ever leaves my D50 now.

    I love my Tokina. I've also heard good things about the Sigma 10-20
