"RE: Lens selection for D7100... Please guide.."
The 16-85 and 70-300 make a good two lens kit for the D7100. They will cover a wide range of situations and allow you to learn about photography. Sure you can buy more expensive lenses, and more specialized lenses, but I think you are starting with a good compromise.The 16-85 has VR and is a good all purpose lens. It should be very good across a wide range of situations. The VR will help with low light or overcast days, as well as interiors.The 70-300 is a good all purpose zoom. It's light enough to carry with you. It's a good choice for wildlife, or zooming in for tight images of people. You'll have plenty of opportunity to learn techniques to isolate your subject. Yes I'd wait until you get to know your camera and personal style.Eric BowlesNikonians TeamMy GalleryWorkshopsNikonians membership — my most important photographic investment, after the camera
