    Welcome aboard Jesse.

    The 28-80 zoom will do a good job for landscape, portraits, barns, trees, etc but for shooting animals from a distance, you will want the longest lens you can afford. 300mm at a minimum - longer if at all possible.

    Oh, and don't forget a tripod to stop everything wobbling about! - especially if you get a long lens.

    Have fun, Bob.

    Hi, Jesse. Welcome to the forum. My suggestion would be to just get a camera and go with name recognition. Nikon, Canon. And don't let a camera's age fool you. Older cameras are great as well, the aforementioned along with Minolta and Pentax. And 28-80 is a great range for starters. At least until the onset of G. A. S. Again, welcome.
    Thank you.
