I am deciding on purchasing the D5100. My favorite type of photography is more distance than close up, such as bridges, landscape, lighthouses, sunset/sunrise, and so on. I also like taking candid shots of people, but from a distance (that's not to say I don't take close-up shots). I also want to learn to take water (Gulf of Mexico, lakes, rivers) shots where you slow down the movement. I am assuming that can be done from a distance too. Lastly, I want to learn night shooting like night cityscapes (if that's what it's called).
My questions are, should I just buy the kit that comes with the 18-55mm and 55-200mm, or should I buy only the body and the lens you suggest for the All-in-On Walkaround (Tamron 18-270mm)?
My funds are $800-900.
And what about filters?
