I am wondering if anybody has any recommendations for a zoom lens for portraiture.
I got a Nikon D70 recently (body only), so I am now looking for a lens to go with it. My only photography experience is with a film SLR ... the no battery and wind film kind... and I shot portraits then. I am pretty much a complete noob to digital SLRs. (I look at the D70 and I am like... why so many buttons one... T_T )
Anyway, I was wondering which zoom lens is suitable. (Prefer a manual lens ... Okie, dumb newbie question... can an auto lens be a manual lens as well?) It would be for portraiture (indoor and outdoor). Budget is about $400... (but hopefully, I can get a second hand one. )
