"RE: Where should I start?"
I'd also consider the 55-200VR package as an alternative to the 55-300. Try handling it in the shop and see what you think.My feeling is too many opt for the longer zoom without accounting for the larger physical dimensions. The 55-200 fits in a pocket easier and judging from reviews also has very good image quality.And please throw out the factory strap that comes with the camera and get a Black-Rapid, UpStrap, or similar!(and don't go D90, in my books this is a 2-generation old sensor for which better is available - DSLRs start and end with the sensor)Best regards, SteveK'A camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.' -- Dorothea LangeMy Nikonians galleryMy Nikonians Blog
