"Nikon d5100 - beginner lens question"
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 LensOR2.) Nikon AF-S 18-105mm f3.5-5.6 ED VR LensThis 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
