Hi,

I am buying a Nikon D5100.

I have two choices of lenses:

1.) 18-55mm VR Kit Lens + Nikon 55-200mm f/4.-5.6 AFS DX VR Lens

OR

2.) Nikon AF-S 18-105mm f3.5-5.6 ED VR Lens


This is my first SLR but I plan to take it up as a hobby.

It will mostly be used for portraits, however I would like for it (as much as possible) to be multi-purpose i.e. holidays, landscape.

So which would you recommend? I understand that if I go for the two lenses I have more range but then the drawback is carrying around two lenses.

If I go for the one lens 18-105, will i be sufficient at this beginner stage for most of my shots i.e. portraits and landscapes?

Lastly, I also intend to connect them to my telescope to take some snaps - will either choice of lenses be better for this?

Thanks in advance
