What would you like to do?
No. Architectural photography requires control over converging vertical lines. Anytime you shoot a building and don't hold the camera perfectly perpendicular to the building's surface, the vertical surfaces of the building willh converge making it look like it's leaning in the picture. You need 1) a view camera with tilt, shift & swing lens plate and ground glass, or 2) perspective control lenses for the D5000, which run over $1000 a pop.

Thanks for the feedback!
It depends, of course, on what you want to photograph. Assuming it isn't underwater photography, wildlife photography tends to be either of animals from a distance - so …the longest, quickest lens you can afford and carry (the Nikon 600mm f/4 VR comes to mind) or taking close-ups of small animals (insects and so on) or plants, in which case one of the Nikon micro lenses would be appropriate.
They zoom the image
The Nikon D5000 is rated as an excellent camera by the major photography magazines online. It is considered an entry-level to enthusiast level DSLR. Costco has a package deal …for the camera body, two VR zoom lenses and a camera bag for 824.99. BHAudioVideo has a very good deal on the body only or with one zoom. A comparable camera, nikon d3000 with a two lens kit is 599.99 at best buy, at least here in our local store. I am wavering between these two but will likely own one of them in a few days. Good luck. oh and they kick a$$ botth of them i sware yo
Yes but older AF lenses that do not have an autofocus motor in them will not autofocus with the D5000.
If you have an AF, or auto-focus lens (like the kit 18-55mm lens) you can focus your lens prior to filming, but cannot auto-focus while filming. To manually focus, switch the …switch on the side of your lens to 'M' for manual. To focus, turn the outer focus ring on the lens until your subject matter is clear.
The Nikon D5000 comes with a Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm kit lens when bought, though you can also purchase the camera new without the lens, or with a series of other choices of lense…s. This lens is a good starting lens to learn the basics with, but if you are looking for a more professional method of photographing, I would recommending investing in a prime or zoom lens.
I have a Nikon slr d5000 and was wondering if the extra lenses had to be made by Nikon to fit my camera?
No as long as they have the correct mount.
Too much. Just kidding... =) Go to your local Best Buy for details.
Sure! You also should consider the Canon 50D.
i have the nikon D3100 and i love it there are so many options etc
This depends on what type of camera you use and where you decide to buy them. The cheapest (standard) lenses average a cost between $134 and close to $500. The more specialize…d ones can go as far $2000 to $6000.
Yes. Make sure you purchase your sigma lens with the F-bayonet. Here is their lens finder: see related link
