Yes this is another "OmG Im AbOuT tO bUy A sLr" thread. I plan on buying a D70 body. i don't have a lot of money to spend. i want maybe two lenses. I would like a nice zoom lens. Nothing crazy. Just a general zoom lens. Correct me if i'm wrong, but the human eye has the field of vision that would be a 30mm on a lens correct? What length is magnification? 17? In laymen's terms i want a 1x to about 3x lens. This isn't my job, so quality doesn't have to be drop dead amazing. But zoomed i naturally i would still like the pictures to look good. And be quick enough to take action shots (atv racing, moving cars, animals etc etc) Could i get somthing like that for about $100-$250? Then the other lens i would liked to be a fixed lens. I would like this to also be a quick lens, and have 1.8-2.5f. for about the same price. I am still learning the in and outs of camera lenses, and why some are priced so high. My last question is about the D70. How fast is the camera capable of auto-focusing, and then taking a picture? Do you hold the button to get it to auto, and then press again to take the shot? Or if im in a hurry can i just bring the camera up snap a picture and it comes out spot free? Or is this where knowing your camera and using the manual focusing come in?
