That is very cool seeing your timeline... I bought a nikon a few weeks ago, and I'm just a giant fail. This is what I got out of it:

and yes, lenses help a lot. The one the camera comes with is shit. haha. But good lenses also don't matter if you don't learn. haha. It's a LONG learning process but very worth it.

Canon EOS 7D.
And I have the 50mm 1.4 lens (LOVE), 35mm 2, and 28-200 3.5. I'll be getting the 85mm 1.8 and 100mm 2.8 macro soon.

i sorta wish i got canon instead of a nikon. i didnt know better at the time.. i feel like they take better pics... would it be wise to just jump to a 100mm lens?

Not really. My suggestion for your next lens would be a 50mm. It's my favorite. Which nikon do you have?

D3100... that is what i planned on getting. I just want to be able to take good shots of my kids and be able to zoom more than i can now.. i just have the lens it came it.
