I am about to purchase Nikon D7100 & have selected the following lenses. 1. AF-S DX Nikkor 16-85 f/3.5-5.6G ED VR 2. AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED 3. AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G
This is my first DSLR and i am a NEW enthusiast. The use will be mainly family pictures, landscapes, birds...
My specific questions: 1. Is my selection of D7100 good? I am slightly nervous about it as its a freshly launched camera & not many user reviews are available. I can pick up D7000 as well. Since this is my first DSLR, i don't want to take any chances as any wrong selection with camera will ruin my enthusiasm forever from this intelligent, beautiful art.
2. Is my selection of lens good? Will it be a better choice if i take AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300 f/3.5-5.6G ED VR instead of 16-85 & 70-300? The aperture of 3.5-5.6 on 18-300 vs 4.5-5.6 on 70-300 is making me think. For me good sharp pics, pics with bokeh is a priority.
Please enlighten me on the above. Thanks in advance... Devrishi
