    Camera Questions??

    I've got a new camera body (Nikon D2Xs)

    1) What would be a good all-purpose lens for group shots, athletic events, landscape shots and broken-jetski-parts? (thinking 17-55 wide/zoom)
    -would two be better?

    2) Is this too much camera for me? -sell it and buy a 8MP EOS w/lens?

    Take a gander here. Decent review with lots of info for you.

    GET THIS LENS. Don't get any other lens till you get this lens and spend some time with it.

    Personally, I'd prefer the Nikon D300 or if I had more money than sense, the Nikon D3. The D3 looks great on paper.

    If you want simple, then get the extremely economical D40.

    Most of my pics this year's WF were taken with a D40 and a 300mm zoom.
