I have a Nikon d7000 with an 18-200mm lens which works pretty good but is very heavy. I just went to Disneyland last week with a group of 8 (my hand is still killing me from using it ALL week). I feel like I got some pretty good shots though. I'm trying to learn to shoot more manually but it seems I forget what I've learned or tried that worked previously when I get caught up in the moment so I just start clicking away to not miss anything. I would like to get another lens for christmas because we are fortunate enough to get gifted with another trip to Disneyland during winter break this time just me and my 2 daughters. I want to try to get a little more creative with my pics because its so beautiful during the holidays. Any recommendations on a good lens to use at DL? I don't have any photo editing software either so I try to get my pics to look as best as they can straight out of the camera with what I know which isn't much. Also, I do not have a point & shoot camera and there were a few times I wished I had a smaller camera. I would also like to get one for christmas so any suggestions on ones that take fast pics that are very clear. I'm so used to using my dslr I'm not sure I would be able to go back to a p&s. Thanks for any info, tips or tricks!
