Still haven't gotten the camera yet.
Ran into some troubles and had to spend a bit of my savings, should have it this weekend.
I just looked at the Harvey Norman website again and noticed the D3000 with 18-55mm and 70mm-300mm going for $828!
The only downfall is they're not VR lenses. Should I instead get the D3000 with an 18-55mm VR lens which will cost more or go with this package? I have been reading "The Digital Photography Book" by Scott Kelby and VR seems like what dreams are made of.
What way would you go Nemesis?
I checked Ted's again and they have the 18-55mm and 55-200mm VR lenses for $919.95 but I did find the exact same package on Ryda
for $898.95 but I think Ted's will beat that price and I'd rather go through Ted's with them being in Brissy and all.
So it's either Harvey Norman D3000 with 18-55mm + 70-300mm for $828.
Or through Ted's the D3000 with 18-55mm VR + 55-200mm VR for $898.
I'm leaning more towards the Ted's package only because combining both lenses gives me 18-200mm but the HN deal there's 56-69mm missing but I get the extra zoom which IMO I wouldn't use to much, I am interested in macro but not that much.
