I've been struggling to get good pictures with my point and shoot camera and have had decent results. While the camera does a decent job it's getting old and I've been wanting a DSLR anyway. The Nikon D5100 looks like a good starter DSLR and would suite me pretty well I think. Nice used ones are priced pretty well. I of course need a macro lens. Would I be well served by a macro zoom lens? Maybe a 35mm to 85mm or would I be better off with a fixed focal length lens and if so what would work best on a copy stand? I will probably get more lenses later for outdoor photography but right now coin pictures are my priority. You guys have seen my pictures and they are not bad but I need an excuse to buy a camera anyway.
