I am looking to get a Nikon 5600 for night sky photography and sports (dog park, martial arts) stills and video.

I am settled on the Rokinon 14mm f2.4 for the night (edit: sky/stars) photography but have not found much for the sports lens and what I did find I was not finding for sale.

Any photographers here with recommendations? I am okay with used/refurbished but want to stay under 1k usd total, including some memory cards, spare battery, and tripod.

I am looking at just the body, but it looks there there are kits with one or both of, AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED Lenses. I really just need the one for night sky and one for action which I would prefer to have quality enough to not need replacing. I am looking for a dslr because my fringe uses do not work well with smartphone cameras.

I picked the Nikon 5600 because it looked able to do what I wanted and in store I liked holding it a ton better than the Canon T7i. They did not have the 7500 to hold but that one does not have a fully articulating screen.

  • There is a Photography stack exchange site where you may find a quicker answer this kind of question. Asking for equipment recommendations appears to be on-topic there as well. – Romen Dec 16 '19 at 21:54
  • @Romen Thanks! I did just that. – Segapuppy Dec 16 '19 at 23:51
