Hey guys, i'm new here. As the title says, i just jumped ship from owning a pentax k-x to nikon. I just bought an allmost new (5500 actuations) Nikon D80 with a Hahnel grip and a brand new 50mm 1.8 AF-D lens. I know that this is an outdated body, but i had only about 800$. So good old body + good lenses is better than new body (d90, d3200, d300) with no lenses or kit lenses. That's my opinion. So after i purchased the d80 and the lens, i'm left with about 500$. What do you guys recommend? what lenses i need (or maybe flash) to complete my kit. I usually take landscape, street and portrait photography, i have no studio, so no professional lights system, and my budget will be about 600-700$. And what do you think about the 85mm f1.8 AF-D?
