For the sake of full disclosure, I am an affiliate of BHPhoto in New York. With over 30 odd years of purchasing equipment Â from them, I’ve never had a bad experience with them, that’s why I feel comfortable recommending them.
When you make a Â purchase through these link, I get a small commission and it doesn’t cost you any extra.
Most beginners or 1st time owners of DSLRs have a very slow kit lens, the most common focal length zoom being 18mm to 55mm. Your very next purchase should be a 50 mm lens. Any one of these will do wonders for your photography.
For Canon users who are beginners and just wanting to get their feet wet…
For those who have the budget and are more serious…
For Nikon users…

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you on this. Perhaps you should read this post first then you can write back and ask your questions.
If you are on facebook, you can also ask this on my facebook page.
Write back with your questions.
Good evening. My relative Pat Corbin suggested I contact you. I am looking at purchasing my first DSLR or upgraded camera. I have pets and guess I would need something more for actions. I take a lot of indoor shots as well but would like to use it for traveling. I was looking at the new Nikon J1, Pentax k-R. Canon seems to be a good camera. Could you share any thoughts? I am looking around $500-$700. Thanks!
So very kind of you to visit and leave a comment and a suggestion on gear. Yes, a 35mm f 1.8 on a Nikon D300 is a good choice for walking around. It’s just the right focal length and not too heavy. If you have questions, you can always ask them here on my blog. I try to provide guidance and answers as best as I can. Cheers.
Two additional suggestions for Nikon: 35 1.8 light, fast sharp and CHEAP and Tamrom 60mm close up inexpensive and very sharp, both for cropped format I use them on D300. Youre site is very valuable if I lived on the coast I would try to study with yo.Again Thanks
