looking for a lens for Nikon D3100
My wife recently surprised me with a refurbished Nikon D3100 camera (body only) so I am now trying to figure out what lens to get.
I want to keep it fairly cheap and versatile.
I will be taking pics of my kids and my aquariums/pets mostly, but I will also want something for landscapes etc.
I have been looking at the nikon DX Zoom Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm lens. It seems I can get a refurbished one of of ebay for ~$85 or try to win one in auction for ~$65. It has good reviews but I am not sure if it will be suitable for aquarium pics.
Will the 18-55mm lens be good for what I want or should I get a 70-300mm?
Also, are there any other brand lenses that will fit on a Nikon without any adapters?
Thanks! Looking forward to picking a lens so I can play around with my camera.
