hi fellow shutterbugs I am kind of new to semi-pro equipment and setup so wanted to run a few questions by the more experienced folks so I don't low my budget on inappropriate equipment. I am planning to get D90 to shoot our company's products in the studio (homemade equivalent of the bench top kind of www.kaiser-fototechnik.de) so now I ponder the lens selection. I have read some articles by ken rockwell on his site and he seems to be happy with versatility and quality of 18-200mm VR (I or II) lenses and has me almost convinced that this lens would be a good chioice for my needs. the products vary in size and are mainly bathroom fittings and fixtures - showers, sinks, faucets ... close up here and there. I have the luxury of space and will make most of the lighting on my own per instructions from Dean Collins' tinkertubes book and similar DIY internet resources. questions: 1.) what would be the most appropriate lens for this application 2.) I would prefer to get one flexible solution (lens) and master it - instead of adding layers of complexity, cost and pushing the learning curve and results further out with multiple lenses. 3.) it would be grand to have a lens which would also serve in capacity of taking photos of family, vacations ... kind of jack of all trades. not a key requirement but a nice bonus so to speak. I am not set on a particular kind of lens so please feel free to chime in with suggestions which have been proven in practice (preferably) any input and/or suggestions would be welcomed! thanks!
