    Yeah and pretty decent for most things, I've found. I don't know why you'd consider a 70-300 a walk around lens, as it's hardly small :squint:

    I've got the Tamron 28-300mm lens, it's pretty light, good all around range for walking around outside and shit.

    That's why I recommended the 28-200. The Nikon unit is no longer than the kit lens when retracted.

    You know, I was using a 1.4 50mm tonight and while it's a great lens, with lots of flexibility, I found myself really wishing I used the 18-70 instead. The 18-70 just gives you a little more flexibility for quickly changing situations and shooting environments on the street.

    prime refers to a fixed focal length as apposed to a zoom that will vary in it's focal length (i.e goes from 17mm to 40mm etc). Primes are great but I get a little lazy and hate having to move myself to get the crop I want as opposed to just staying in one spot and zooming in or out if I want too.

    50mm is $70, money very well spent even if you get another zoom that covers 50mm. Its low light performance and sharpness are hard to beat if you can zoom with your feet

    Good, I like it so far. I got it in a kit, so I forget what I paid for it exactly. Retail is about $400ish I believe. I got it for I think $300 or so. But I can't say for sure. Still learning it atm.
