Hi Marty! : )

Thanks so much for your help! And happy to be part of this community!

Just to be crystal clear (because this is new to me) - do you recommend that I get the:

>The 18-55mm and 55-200mm would be more cost effective.

(This kit comes to a total of about $1000 before taxes)

And then eventually invest in buying the 18-105mm next, then add the
Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR when I can afford it?

>If you intend to shoot sports in low light a Faster (much more
>expensive) zoom lens would be a much better choice.

Gotcha - that makes total sense - as well as the rule of thumb (hahaha, well sorta!)

>Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Thanks again, Marty! : )

Linda
