Speicifically, a new lens for my Nikon D700. It's a full-frame digital SLR, and my old lens was not full-frame...it was a cheapy lens, all I could afford after getting the camera. In any case, the lens done gone and busted while I was in Hawaii (MAJOR bummer!), so now I need to get a new one. I don't like changing lenses; experience has taught me that I need to just have one lens. I like a wide-to-tele with macro. Anyone know of an affordable, reasonably good quality lens like that, that would be full-frame, for my camera? I've tried looking everywhere and my head is aching from the confusing gaggle of letters, number, details. I'm a visual girl; I know what results I like when I shoot. I don't happen to care about much other than: fast enough for action, good macro, good low-light. My camera is fantastic in low light. I shoot a lot of macro...a LOT. also snaphots, and just a variety of things ranging from scenics to photojournalism, to abstracts.
I also need to get a cable-release, and, apparently, a bracket-type release head and tripod that will fit that. My current one is too small for stability under the camera.
Any help given will be appreciated! Looking to spend up to about 500 for the lens. Not an Ebay fan. (don't know the ropes and yada yada, caveat emptor etc.)
