    Have bought a 2nd hand D70 from a friend of mine for a year plus liao.
    Been useful when travelling. Decided to get some seriousness with this hobby....

    Will be purchasing AF-D 50/f1.8 very soon....
    After that will be smething like 200mm / 300mm kind.

    Welcome to CS.

    Just keep reading and practising...

    As for lens choices, consider carefully and your first choice is a good decent one.

    Welcome to CS!
    What lens(es) have you currently got with your D70?
    If it's the kit lens 18-70, that should be sufficient to take most shots. Any reason why you need the long reach of a telephoto lens?
    Exploring! :)

    Hi all,

    thanks for the warm welcome...

    ZerocoolAstra, i want (not a must though) a lens that can zoom faraway leh. Many a times when overseas, i required it but don't have the feature. but i know this doesn't come cheap. so got to save up for it. yah... i currently using the 18-70mm, comes with the camera.

    I no good in this hobby.. i don't mind to hear your opinon.

    Question: does 200/300mm comes in telephoto?

    Don't laugh at my question hor...

    Newbie..

    Cheers all...

    On the cheap, consider either the 55-200 or 70-300.
