After reading many posts in the forum I have decided to purchase the Nikon D50--a definite step up from my point and click Sony digital. I'm also going to purchase a 18-70mm Nikon lens. What zoom lens would you recommend as a step up from the Nikon 55-200mm f4-5.6G? I don't want to spend a lot more than what this lens costs, but would consider purchasing a used lens. 200mm should be more than enough zoom for the shots I take and I am not a great one for using a tripod. My son is a swimmer, so I end up taking a lot of pictures at swim meets. Please excuse my newbie ignorance. Any advice from the experts (everyone is an expert compared to me)will be appreciated.
