I'm currently shooting using a D3100 with 18-55mm kit lens and after shooting for close to 2 years, I'm pretty sure the hobby is gonna stay so I'm playing with the idea of getting lenses to play with.
As I do more landscape and street shooting, the order of lens acquisition I'm thinking of is: prime lens(50/1.8), then a wide angle lens, then a telephoto for more zoom if needed. Reason being I've hardly zoomed in my shooting; most of my shots are at 18mm.
Hope to get some advice on:
- Obviously if I'm getting Nikon lenses, I'll be staying with Nikon forever. Is there any reason for me to even consider Canon? (Note Point 3 about potential upgrading of body)
- Is Nikon 50mm f/1.8G prime lens too old? It was released in 2011. In other words, do lenses become outdated?
- I see myself upgrading to a full-frame in the near future; what should I take note of in terms of lens-buying now to ensure that I can continue using them when I do upgrade. (Note: D7100 looks like a potential buy)
