Hello All,

Anyone care to tell me what to buy? <g> I'm an amateur returning to photography after some time off. I'm going to get my well-preserved FE reconditioned, but I also want to try some new AF equipment.

The N80 kitted with the 28-80 zoom is $600. Otherwise, the piece cost for the N80 with the 28-105 zoom is $820. I think I'd prefer to have the 28-105 as my first/only AF lense, but could/should I live with the 28-80 zoom and save $220? This amateur's decision is further complicated by knowing that I can later add a 70-300 zoom for $300. Also considering the SB22s.

Any recommendations, 28-80 or 28-105? The application is typical family photography - home, youth sports, and outdoor trips.

Thanks!

Glenn
