Photography has been something I wanted to do for a long time. I've had various point and shoot cameras, but they just don't do it for me. I really want to step up and get something nicer. Here are things I'm interested in doing: Macros (bugs, plants, things like that) Wide angle stuff (views of canyons, deserts, mountains) Portraits (well not exactly the professional looking type, but catching people in random situations) I know my descriptions are very vague, but this is pretty much the type of pictures I am interested in. I understand I will probably have to get a different type of lens or even several lens types for each of the above interests, but I would like to start with one of them, then as I get more money, buy the rest. My budget is ~$1000 give or take and I would like to buy these things new. Any help GREATLY appreciated.
