I have a faulty Nikon D80 with two superb lenses. What model is its natural successor, and what is the best quality lens I can get bundled with it?
The fault means I have to manually pop-up the flash before I can take any pictures. The camera works, but it's a pain in the arse.
Because the D80 is 6 years old anyway, repairing it might cost me more than it is worth. An upgrade would be sweet, especially since I'd also like a new lens...
My lenses currently are a AF-S 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6
- amazing for outdoor shots. It can do anything, but it is bulky.
The second lens is a AF 50mm 1:1.4
- extremely portable, amazing in low-light and for portraits, but limited in the breadth of the photos it can take. Beautiful photos though.
I want the best quality lens in between
these two. Something pretty portable that takes great close to mid-range shots. Any ideas?
I could then buy a new Nikon (which model is the natural successor to the super D80?) bundled with this lens, and sell off my old body. That's the idea anyway.
What should I do?
