Hi. I'm a mom of two girls, 4 years and a newborn and mostly want to take pictures of them and the family. I have been wanting to get into photography a long time ago, but finally want to take the jump. I am planning on getting the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G AF-S FX SWM Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras and the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S ED VR II Nikkor Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon DX-Format Digital SLR Cameras for either of the cameras I am planning on getting. I want a good camera, not too heavy but with optimal results. I would love to get the D7000 but I think it might be too heavy and bulky so that's why I'm considering the D5100. Thoughts on this? I want to make a decision today so I can take advantage of the offer Amazon is offering in their Nikon lenses, which ends today.
P.S. Thoughts on the lenses? I have spent several days reading about this and I think these two would be good choices. Thank you for your much needed input!
