Nice, that's why i shifted and make my cam a full frame one. Even it's old, it's still a full frame. I may not upgrade my body for the next years, will be focusing more one lenses and other useful accessories

This article will really help me a lot since Im new in the photography world. Ngayon na medyo kabisado ko na ang gamit kong camera pede na siguro ako mag upgrade ng lens. Mostly kasi Im into portraits at street photography so ang unang lens upgrade na bibilhin ko ay yung 50mm f/1.8G. Im also into outdoors so isang mahabang lente. baka po meron kayong suggestion it will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

I consider myself very lucky that I have a dad that was into the hobby years ahead before I can even spell photography.

When I wanted to try it, He asked me if I was serious. He started me out with a Nikon FM2 and a 50mm, even though he already had a seldom used D40, he rarely let me touch it.
After 3 months he gave me his D40, and the kit 18-55mm, that went with it. Without the FM2 experience, I wouldn't have greatly appreciated the introduction of a 3rd important variably, the ISO.

I spent a couple of years shooting with the D40, He wouldn't let me touch any of his cams and lenses. Oh, he did gave me this nifty SB-400 flash to use after a year.

After saving a good amount, I bought myself a D7000 and my Dad literally opened up his lens collection for me. But he did it, 1 by 1, and would tell me to spend time with each. I tried the 70-300mm, the 85mm, the 24-70. But I fell in love with the DX 35mm. With the high mega-pixel of my D7000 and the convenience of cropping things in post processing, I could literally shoot anything with the 35mm. a couple of steps forward or backward was all I needed. I conveniently traveled and joined photo-walks with only that lens. I always thought panget yung mga lenses na yun. (Yes, napangitan ako sa 24-70,)Wala na sana akong balak pang ibang bilhin at balak ko na nga sanang ibenta ang D7000 ko at bumili nalang ng X100 until I read this article.

After reading this article, I realized that those lenses weren't crummy, I just didn't know how to use it. I never gave it a chance. I also realized that I'm into street and nature photography.

thanks for the read, and the second wind.  ;D

hi i'm new to photography and also to this group. i saw this thread and wanted to know which of these options is the best upgrade for me? also my budget is around Php12-15K.

1. Nikon Zoom Super Wide Angle AF 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Autofocus Lens

or

2. Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX and Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX Lens

what i have right now is a 50mm f/1.8D paired with my D90. i'm not a professional, the D90 was only sold to me by my sister because she needs to buy a new one.

i use it for group pictures (church meetings, parties, holidays, etc), basketball games, action figures.

thanks in advance! i'm really glad i joined this forum. i'm already learning a lot. =)

I feel bad ngayon ko lang nabasa itong thread na ito. :( kasi nakabili na ako ng L lens kahit di naman ako masyado marunong sa photography. I hope I did not make the wrong decision.

Your D90 and 50mm 1.8D is already great. Now buy the 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 for group pics para hindi ka atras ng atras. Then buy external flash probably SB600 and that will do wonder for your group pics. Save more for a telephoto 70-200mm f/2.8 probably sigma which is cheaper than a nikkor for your sports photo. Happy shooting!
Cheers!

@rljavierto: thanks for the information. yun din ang naiisip ko na bilin. sa ngayon habang nagiipon manghihiram muna ako ng lens sa ate para matulungan din ako makapagdecide habang nanghihiram pa ako sa kanya =)

my lens line is somewhat complete already in terms of range.
Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 non-vc
Tokina 50-135 f/2.8
Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 (120-300mm approx in a crop body)

I did not spend to much from the above line-up as the last two have been purchased 2nd hand in pristine condition.

I am still craving for 24-70 and 70-200 to replace the three to future proof my line-up just in case I go full frame as I am using currently D7K. In my case when already have the budget, I will dispose the first two as the 80-200 is already ready for FF. My learning is that if your budget allow, go for the killer lens (save and buy it one at a time to replace the kit lens). Ang hirap kasi talaga na pigilang maglaway kahit ayos na kung ano meron ka. tsk tsk.

save,save and save and then buy the best lens that you wanted! This thread is a big help, salamat caterpillar.  I recently bought the canon efs-10-22mm and I love it,...an L lens without the red ring. I already have the 18-55 kit lens, 50mm 1.8 and 55-250mm, but the sharpness of the "L" is superb! My 100mm 2.8 L IS macro is my walk around lens--very sharp! Isa na lang ang kulang---70-200mm f4 L IS  plus the extender and I'm  okay :)

my lens line up now is
canon 24-70 2.8
sigma 70-200 2.8
canon 100macro
sigma 50 1.4

sa range ok na siya, pero i lack on the wide. 24mm on a crop body is not wide parang sakto lang siya sa paningin ko..next target will be 17-50 tamron or 17-40L

nice article very informative
