Hi, well, things 've changed drastically since the last time, now I don't have my d3000 anymore, the camera started failing and I took it to the store and the result was I needed a replacement, but the store had no hold on any d3000 or either another nikon like the d3100, the only option they gave me was to make the change for a t2i, just had to give an extra 50 dls, guess that's a really good end result. The only issue is I already have a 35mm 1.8 and a 70-300, but well, was able to sell the 70-300 and the 35 1.8 is on it's way out, so right now I'm stuck with the canon and the kit lens. Can't do that much outdoors (things here in Mexico are not suited right now for being outdoors taking pictures), so I'm going for indoor portraits and some macro. So I'm going for starters with the 50 1.8 II and I guess I'll try to get a good and not that expensive flash to help me out a bit. already have some lights from a couple of mic stands and just need the socket for the cfl and a couple of umbrellas and I guess I'll be good to go. Perhaps in time I'll be able to get the 50 1.4 and maybe an 85 1.8.
Just wanted to let you know.
Thanks to every one for the kind responses.
