"Just picked this up. Couple of questions?"


US
          

I just recently picked up this D60 for a fairly good price. It came with three lenses so my question is what is each lens good for?

Here is what I got in my package:
1 - AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G
1 - Quantaray AF LD 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 Tele-Macro (1:2)
1 - AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 1:4-5.6G ED

Thank any info is appreciated.

Hi Juan,

Welcome to Nikonians!
All of the lenses can be used for general purpose photography.
The 18-55mm is a wide angle to normal lens zoom lens and will provide a wider FOV (Field of View) for shooting groups in tight spaces or landscape scenes as well as walk around use.
Both the 55-200mm and the 70-300mm are telephoto zooms. They can be used for portraits at the wide end (55mm, 70mm) and field sports or wildlife at the long end (200mm, 300mm).
Mount the each lens on the camera and look thruogh the viewfinder and capture a few images at different focal lengths. You will get a better feel of each lens and determine which is best for your particular needs based on the subject and ambient conditions.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
