We are (Soon to Be) Doodle Moms and I found a really sweet deal on a Nikon D3200, (read: in my budget). It comes with a 55-200mm lens (as well as other accessories). I haven't used an SLR in many, many years and never a DSLR. I researched and decided on this camera. The price was right, and it is RED! My question is, after reading many discussions in this group: Can I use the 55-200mm lens as an every day lens while I get back familiar with using an SLR and learning my new DSLR?
What I have found in reading, I think, is that I really need a prime lens, such as a 50mm for everyday photos. And if I understand correctly, the aperture on the 55-200mm may not be the range I need.
If I need to go ahead with the 50mm, does anyone have any recommendations on good, used lenses from a reputable seller?
I have everything to learn and I am reading, reading, reading, and trying not to ask questions before I research my questions here, first.
Thanks in Advance,
