"First lens for D50 ---"



          

I will be picking up my D50 soon, and can't decide which lens or lenses to get. I will primarily use it for landscape when hiking, with occasional pictures of my son running around and such.

I can't decide between getting the Nikon 18-70mm or getting the Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 with a wide angle lens, like the Tamron 17-35mm 2.8-4, or say a nikon 20mm 2.8.

Will the quality be worth the extra $$$ to go for the 2-piece setup? Or will the difference be negligible?

Thanks in advance!

How to ask a hard question.

There is no answer. I like my 18-70 but the 2 lens zoom system will give you more range and better low light use.

Get all three -- and solve the problem.
