Okay, here's my situation. I freelance as utility mostly in sports and entertainment. Often I'm positioned in the pit at a concert, or on the side lines of a game as the "go to" person in the event of a fire. Only about 1% of the time are there fires to put out so I simply enjoy the event. I always wanted a camera to capture my experience and one day a D80 was placed into my hands at a family event. I went wild and now I want one. As I learn this camera, my intent is to use it for sports, entertainment, social events and family portraits. Question: Do you think that the D80 is a decent camera in which to start and would it be wise to go for the Super Wide Angle-Telephoto AF Zoom Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX VR II Autofocus Lens, or would that be a bit too much at my experience level? Remember, I am totally a novice.
