I'm looking to purchase my first dslr and have settled on the d3400, I believe. It's price point is only $50 more than the d3300 now, so I think simply having better battery life will make the extra cash worth it. I'm trying to decide if I should take the plunge and purchase Nikon's holiday special, which includes the d3400 with the kit lens, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED, and the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G. I've done a little research and am concerned I may be better off to just buy the camera with the kit lens, and then buy my lenses separately. The holiday deal does safe a decent chunk of change though, so it's worth thinking about! These are my main concerns:
1. The 70-300mm is NOT equipped with VR and that seems worth while for a zoom lens, however does the deal make the slight drop in quality worth it?
2. I'm unsure if the 50mm is best for me over the 35mm
I'm interested in portrait photography, still life, landscape, and generally to capture great shots as I'm traveling, or just taking a walk downtown (I think this would be considered street photography?), and getting some decent shots of my dad's band as he performs. Sports photography isn't my thing, and I enjoy the idea of wildlife photography but the gear is expensive and that may just have to wait. I'm wanting to train myself for my upcoming Disneyworld vacation next December, so practicing with bright artificial light at night and some of the decorations/statues/architecture during the day.
Do you think this bundle is worth $819 or should I space out my lense purchases and spring for the higher quality?
