This maybe to late, but I take pictures for a local theater. (Plays and concerts) Some times I can not use my flash and I use my 70-300 lens the most. The high ISO this camera has I still use it at 1/160 for stop action. I will also use my 18-105 zoom for my wider shots. I'm happy and so is the theater.

I know my D40 does great with a 300mm zoom and just started testing with a teleconverter to get out to 420mm.
My D90 does even better, of course.

I have cropped 300mm zoomed images from the D40 and printed 8x10s that look fantastic.

Thanks - your example of blowing up the picture taken with the DSLR was exactly the kind of response I was hoping to get! I get the feeling that the 18-105 will be a good travel camera, with perhaps a pocket 12X in case...

I have recently puchased a Nikon D90 and am so happy that i can take pic witha remote trigger and not wonder whether or not the photo is blurred or not saved to memory. I have taken some pics at higher zooms and have looking at macro and micro options too. Even though the zoom of an editor or magnifying glass in lightroom increases the zoom with exceptionally clear resolution think being able to get the shot right away saves alot of time. And have also been looking at ridiculous zoom lenses that up to like 600-1600mm? Anybidy have any recommendations for what these lenses are really good for?

I see. One of the drawbacks with the 18-200+ types of superzoom lenses is that they tend to have smaller apertures which will also give you somewhat slower shutter speeds at the same focal length compared to a lens with a smaller range.

Sure, the 18-105mm with its wide angle to moderate telephoto should cover muost of your general photography needs. Won't help with birds though. I used a 15-85mm when I visited China and it was a great range for travel. Of course YMMV (depends how much you use the long telephoto end).

Thanks - I had a film SLR years ago and tired of changing lenses. That's why the digital cameras with 15+ zoom have been ideal for me - except for their slow shutters. I'm trying to find a lens that will make me happy without having to change all of the time, so I assume if I start with the 18-105 I'll be OK until I decide to change to an 18-200... yes? (When traveling I don't want to be bogged down)
