So, I think I have discovered a hobby that is more expensive than egging... After we got our babies home and payed a photographer several hundred dollars to come and take pics of them once. The thought hit me, you could do this and save money... yea right!
I sold the wifey on the idea and picked up a Nikon D5200 with a 18-55 kit lens and then got a 50mm prime lens. I love the 50mm. Can you say BOKEH?!?!?!?!?
The kit lens does fine, but I would like to upgrade and find a variable zoom lens with a longer reach (in the 100-200mm range) that can get close to the quality of the prime lens without spending a thousand dollars or more.
Is this possible? Any recommendations? I am not opposed to off brands as long as the build quality is good...
PS: I have lots of motivation to take good pics... This is this is their first fight.
