Im thinking about getting the Nikon D50 (or D60 if it comes out soon) but Im not sure what lens to go with. From reading these forums I get the idea the place to sink the money is in the lens, not the body. Here is what Im considering D50/60 kit 18-55 $699.00 D50/60 kit 18-55 & 55-200 $899.00 D50/60 body $549.00 Nikon 18-200 DX VR $749.00 $1298.00 At the moment my main interest in photography will be taking pictures of dogs playing in the local off leash Dog Park, pictures of people, nature and landscapes. I have not used a SLR in many years, and this would be my first DSLR. Given the description of my intended use and inexperience is there any advantage to going with the body/18-200 DX VR combination. From what Ive read this is a better quality lens then the other two, and then again Ive read that the others are not bad for kit lenses. If Im better off sticking with the kit lenses should I get just the 18-55 or the 18-55 and the 55-200. One final question, are camera shop prices significantly higher then online (not grey market) prices, or are they comparable at this level.
