In need of a new lens


Abby has been taking photography at school and so she has been taking my old D70 with my 18-70mm lens. Yesterday, she fell as she came out of the school and later discovered that the lens broke. She was heartbroken!

So tomorrow I will be heading to the mall to get a new lens. This was the lens that I used most of the time.

So, my question is... should I get the same lens or would anyone recommend getting a different lens?

I'm not the one to be giving any suggestions. My camera is a Costco special. lol! Why not buy a replacement as well as a different lens so that you can experiment. You're such an awesome photographer and as such could use several different lenses.

Oh maaaan! Poor Abby.

I couldn't live without my 18-55mm, like yourself. (Although yours has an even better telephoto to 70mm, which would be even better!) I use that lens all.the.time. I rarely pull out my 55-250mm, but when I do, I love it. You have to have lots of space for that one, but I think you already have it?

I'm about to buy myself the 50mm though. :)

Yikes! Hope Abby didn't get hurt!

I have no clue! I was actually going to ask you and Jill what sort of camera I should buy! I would really like to learn how to take better pictures.

Happy shopping.:)

Jill, I do have the 55-250 lens and love it too, I also have the 55mm lens and LOVE it, it does an amazing job for portraits. I am going to see if I can get this fixed first, so I will be using my 55mm lens for now!
