Hi, A friend wants to gift her sister a lens on her birthday. The recipient is a beginner and owns an F75 + 50/1.8. Do you have any suggestions for good quality lenses that would fit the budget.
I solved the quality/price problem in my own case by going for manual focus lenses - but for that I had to dump my N80 for an N90s - this is not an option for her. So, are there any AF lenses that are cheap but not absolute junk - I am not expecting the quality of a 180/2.8 or anything, but not Quantaray zooms either!
I was thinking of a vivitar 100/3.5 Macro - I used to own this - plastic and fragile but sharp!
Also maybe one of the 70-300 zooms might be useful.
Any thoughts on the subject would be welcome.
