#2. "Depends on what you are shooting" In response to Reply # 0
I bought my D50 with the 18-55 & 55-200 kit and the 55-200 is too slow (only goes to f4.5) for many of my pictures. I bought the camera primarly because my point & shoot digitals were not fast enough to take pictures of my daughter's basketball games. I wish I had come to this site before I purchased my camera package and I would have went with a different lens set up. I love the camera, just wish I had gotten a different long zoom.
