    Hiya!

    Really depend what you plan to shoot. option 3 would be good if you have no idea what kind of photography you are into and is keen to explore. 18-200 is a very versatile lens. Cheers!

    I guess it depends on what you're going to shoot.

    Hello...welcome.

    For beginners, a D90 with 18-200mm or kit lens would be a good choice.

    depends on what you want to shoot

    the 18-200 also have the 50mm focal length covered, do you need the f1.8 aperture?
    anyway, just start with that and add on later if/when you feel the BBB virus

    if you still have the budget to spend, either get
    1. camera bag
    2. dry cabinet
    3. tripod
    4. external flash

    choose one or all
    have fun

    To start with, u can just get 18-200 VR. When u realise u need the f1.8, u can then get a
    50mm f1.8, or 35mm f2 to add on.

    i think dnt need.. the kit lens is really superb enough for day to day use even into the nite... any o how shot oso sharp.. just tat i feel its focusing speed is kinda slow abit... maybe the 1.8 with bigger opening will focus faster...

    Really depends on ur usage of ur DSLR

    18-200mm VR versatile in terms of focal length & good for travel
    but not useful in low light environment w/o flash

    50mm 1.8 gives u better light low performance but u have to zoom in & out w/
    ur feet

    As some mention, why not just get the 18-200mm together w/ 50mm 1.8 ?
    50mm f1.8 is a very value for cost lens for beginner

    If your budget permits, just get D90 + 18-200mm VR. If not, then consider D90 + 18-105mm VR kit.

    Play with your camera first and then you will answer your own question whether do you need 50mm f/1.8 or not.

    Hi Nicol,

    it would all depend on what you'd want to do with the setup. If you're going for maximum image quality, then stick with primes and the better zooms.
