A coworker of mine. He's 50+ and works 2 jobs because he likes to work. Christmas time has come around and he's looking to buy a new lens. In conversation he said he might buy a brand new (newest version) nikon camera. He has a d50 (That's what he says) and he seriously doesn't have time to take advantage of a d20 much less what he has much less the newest version whatever that is. Could I get some advice on which lens he could use to shoot 'everything' and it be 'awesome'. He has a 18mm - 35mm lens (at least that's what he said). I've seen posts about a lens for the d-series nikon stating there is a great 'beginners' lens that shoots everything awesome. Now that you've read the most worthless and vague post on the net ... maybe someone has an idea what this guy should be looking to get.
