"RE: Only One Lens"

I want to thank you for your thoughtful questions. I would ask you to bare with me please being the novice that I am.

Regarding:

"what is most important to you? Is it critically sharp pictures or carrying just one lens?" - in the past I was satisfied with acceptable pictures therefore when I posed my one lens question, my intent was to keep it as simple as possible. Now, that I have read 75% of Darrell Young's "Mastering The Nikon D7000", read the replies to my post and have seen the pictures posted in Nikonian and other places, I doubt that I will be as satisfied with just acceptable pictures in the future.

Blowups - the largest prints I've made have been 8X10. With my new d7000 and whatever lens I end up with no doubt I will want larger prints IF I'm able to produce a few exceptional pictures.

Two Zoom Lens - as I mentioned in an earlier response to a reply, I am probable naive to think one lens can do everything. Thus, what would be your recommendation for the second zoom lens? The 18-200 seems to be the selection of the majority of those replying to my post. The 70-300 (also suggested)intrigued me because it was not as costly as the 18-200 or the 18-300.

Flash Unit - my intent is not to bring an external flash unit mostly because I don't yet have one.

Post Processing Software - I currently do not have this software. Your opinion of what would be most appropriate for someone with my level of expertise would be appreciated. At one time I had Photoshop Elements but did VERY little editing using the application more for organizing my photos.

Norm, again I sincerely appreciated your questions back to me. Please do not hesitate to offer more advice.

All the Best

Don
