Thanks Mike,

My budget is around 300-325$.

I am a beginer so I'd like to do more experiments rather than any particular type of photography.

i am learning.....

I recommend saving that money for a few months at least and getting to know the lens you have. The Nikon 18-55mm lens is excellent, and once you get to know it well, you will learn it's limitations, which will help you decide what to get next. And in the meantime maybe you'll save some more money to give you more options for lenses.

Lenses are so different, and what you get next will depend on things like whether you want better low-light shooting ability, whether you want to get things that are farther away, whether you want to get closer up, etc.

I think I used just my kit lens for nearly a year before getting something else. When I first started shooting with my dslr, I assumed I would want a long telephoto lens, with which I could take photos of faraway things,  as my second lens, but in getting to know my camera and my style, I discovered I was more interested in a prime lens that would be lightweight and let me get interesting effects with depth of field.

Actually, that's pretty solid advice. I played with the kit lens that came with my Rebel XSi for about 8 months until I got my head around the camera and I got a feel for what I liked to shoot. Then I picked up a dedicated macro lens and a 75-300mm long lens. Both give me enough diversity to cover all my bases.

And then I chucked my Rebel for a Canon K2 35mm and a 50-200mm Tamron lens. smile

I've got my eye on a Lensbaby - it sounds like a fun toy to play with - but that wont be until I get stead work again.
