    Hi Clubmates!

    Thanks for your feedback and recommendation. I will also consider 2nd hand-len but the thing is I do not know how to check whether is the len has any defect or hidden problems.

    I was at LORDS this afternoon and found out prices for the following lens and camera...

    Nikon 70mm-300mm VR = $850
    Nikon 10mm-24mm = $1370
    Nikon 50mm/f1.8 = $170
    Nikon 35mm f1.8 = $370
    Tokina 11mm-16mm/f2.8 = $950
    Nikon 18mm-200mm = $1060
    Nikon SB600 flash = $360
    Nikon D90 body + 18mm-105mm kit lens = $1680
    Nikon D90 body = $1380

    I would like to seek recommendation of a decent telephoto and wide angle len for a starter like me.

    I am using a Nikon D80, SB600. Budget of each len to be at max S$600 each. I have come to a point that my kit len 18-135mm doesn't satisfy my interest in both nature and landscape.

    Also I don't mind other makes of lens beside Nikon as long as it give a decent result that doesn't discourage a starter in these 2 field of photography. I would likely be leaning towards day photography but once a while by night, as such low-light lens (ie: F2.8) are good to have but not necessary due to my tight budget.

    So mates... please give me some suggestions for my consideration and reviewing.

    Thanks in advance.
    Buy the 75-300 if you are looking for affordable ones
