What do you think about candid pictures of people in a crowd? I was actually looking for something that can work for both. Or do you think I should stick to my current 35mm f:1.8G for that? The only problem I see with it, is that it takes time to compose the image, from having to foot zoom. Or maybe I just need more practice with it?

Thanks John, I received the same advice on the 24-120mm from another user, and after seeing some pictures taken by it, I am leaning towards it now. Will compare the pictures by both (or see if I can actually borrow or rent the lens), and then I'll make a final choice.

I heard that the make of Tamron lenses are not very good. How do they fare in the long run?

I am not very happy with the kit lens. I use the 35mm one, more often, infact all the time. Your advice on the 24-120mm sounds good. I think I'll look at flickr pictures taken with this and then see what I like more. Thanks for the help :)

Thanks for your advice, I actually thought about my interests and realized that I will not be shooting sports, maybe at all. So, I guess I'll go with the former for now.

I think the 3fps on D3100 is actually not adequate for sports, and I will not be photographing sporting events that much. Thank you very much for your advice. I think I will go with the 55-200mm for now and then later on when I am ready to venture into wildlife photography I'll think upgrading to the latter.
