Coming back to photography and get lost in the market - I need your help! in Discussion Forum July 26, 2018, 17:31
I'm new on this forum which I subscribed to get a response to a very tough question: which lenses should I buy for a comeback to photography and also which body to pare with those lenses?
Let me explain my situation: I used to own a bridge camera (Nikon Coolpix p510) with which I have learned the basics. I really enjoyed that camera because of the extreme focal range that it had (from 24mm up to 1000mm equivalent) that has allowed me to experiment and find out which are the subjects that I like to photograph the most.
Time has gone on and I have sold my first camera to buy parts for my enduro motorbike (150€... imagine how broke I was ). During the past years, I have tried a few cameras from different ranges: Samsung NX1000, Canon d1100, and the Fujifilm xt1, which has really impressed me.
Now I finally have a discrete budget (approximately 1500 €) to invest in a decent camera and in some pretty good quality lenses. I mostly photograph landscapes and I would like to experiment with astrophotography. I also like some to take some architectural and street photography (but mostly architectural) when I'm on vacation (so I think that I really need a super wide or just a wide angle lens). I also visit many museums during my trips and when the occasion happens I like to take some wildlife photographs. (Therefore I think that the wide lens mentioned before paired with a zoom lens that goes up to a decent telephoto would do the job for me).
I was mostly looking at the mirrorless system because it's lighter to carry around. Do you guys have any suggestions?
