Hi everyone,

I've just joined up to this forum. I've finally decided to move up from point and shoot cameras to the world of SLRs.

After a lot of reseacrh, I've finally decided that I will buy the D5000 in the next two weeks and I can't wait to get it and use it.

I am thinking of getting the below lens combo for the camera.

18-105mm VR
35mm f1.8G AF-S

I will be mainly using it for general holiday photography (people, buildings, sights etc) so the reason for the 18-105mm.

Also for low-light pics inside (restaurants, clubs etc) so the reason for the 35mm.

I've also heard the 16-85mm VR and 18-200mm VR are good general lens too. Should I stick to what my initial decision is or perhaps opt for the more expensive lenses.

Appreciate any advice/feedback.

James
