Hey friends, I'm going to buy a D7100.
I already have the following Nikon lenses: 50mm 1.8 and 55-200mm 3.5-5.6.
My question is should I buy a D7100 with the 18-105mm lens or a D7100 with a 18-55mm and 35mm 1.8g
I ask this because I think that, perhaps, with a 18-105 I would stop using my 55-200mm. If I buy a 18-55mm I would still have use for the 55-200mm.
But I think that, since I already own a 50mm 1.8, the 35mm 1.8 on a DX body wouldn't be of any use.
I know that this is a weird question and in the end it all boils up to my own personal preferences but I'm new to photography and I'm interested to know your opinions on the matter.
A D7100, a great camera is a bit too much for a beginner but if you have the money, go for it. I would use the money to buy better lenses though. A good kit lens is the 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 yeah its full frame but so what? Also invest in good prime lenses or a wide zoom like a Tokina 11-16 f2.8
Why get the 35mm 1.8g when you already have a 50mm?
If I were you, I'd just get the D7100 body and use the 50mm 1.8 lens that you have. Then after a few months I will get the lens that you think you will need.
Get the kit with the 18-55/35. That gives you a 27-300mm equivalent in two slow lenses for daylight use, and then you have the 50/75 mm equivalent primes, which can be indoor/night/bokeh lenses.
Or just buy the body only, and buy a higher quality lens like a 24-120 f/4 or other fixed aperture lens.
I've got a sweet deal that will end up being almost the same price as buying the body only.
I think I'm going to end up with the 18-55 and the 35mm. If anything I'll sell the 35mm and buy a 24-120mm afterwards.
The guy is offering me a 35mm "for free" if I buy the D7100 with the 18-55mm instead of the D7100 with the 18-105

Then get it.
Sell the 18-55mm afterwards and use it to buy accessories like a flash etc.
This i dont think d7100 is a bit too much for beginner, but it is a good beginner camera. Got it as my first dslr. The two dials is really fun to use compare to d5300 which i was thinking to buy since i have no money. Good thing my parents extend the budget even more. Now that i have a part time job. Im paying them back the money
