Evening all, I have a Nikon D40 with the AF-S DX 18-55 mm Lens and the AF-S DX 55-200 mm Lens, which was included in the kit I bought. I have to say I'm not overly impressed by the 55-200 mm lens so far, but maybe I just need to give it (and me) some time. Any way, I'll be on holidays in June for about three weeks in a spot that is heaven-sent for seascape, landscape, sunsets, wildlife photography (a big range, I know) so I was hoping to get some advice on what might be a good lens to add to my collection. I know, of course, that the best of lens are way, way out of my budget - ideally I'd prefer to get something in the $600/E400 range - but would try and push the boat out a bit if there was a lens out there that would, well, change my life. I know about the (lack of) autofocus issue with some lens for the Nikon D40, but I'm not too concerned about that. Of course autofocus would be nice, but I wouldn't let it put me off anything you might strongly recommend. I think, ideally, I'm looking for a reasonable quality zoom (again, I accept the good ones are beyond my wallet's reach), I suppose I can just depend on my trusty 18-55 mm for those close-ups of flowers (that bore my family so much ). Would really, really, really appreciate your advice and expertise - thank you.
