I just purchased a Nikon D750 along with a 50mm f/1.8g lens which is very good at closeup photos. I need help in buying a full frame zoom lens for this great camera. Please help me.

Since you're in the weddings section I will assume that's what it's for. Most use the Nikon or Tamron 70-200 f2.8.

Its a great camera, you'll enjoy using it.

I see you already have the 70-200.

We need more information on what you want to photograph with this zoom.  Do you want to go wide for landscapes or far for sports/wildlife ?

Welcome to the forum by the way.

Welcome to the forum B..  you make it difficult to suggest an ideal next lens acquisition for as Rod typed you have not given us any insight to your hopes and desires relative to your new camera..?  I suspect the Nikkor 24-70 VR E lens might provide interesting possibilities for you, in that it is the go-to lens for some landscape photographers and wedding photographers, Expensive lens for sure, though there are many less expensive alternatives and given the Nikkor is a relatively new to market lens, there may be plenty of second hand Nikkors without VR being traded against it as gear junkies and pros, cash their old lenses in..? A lens can be a long term investment, whereas cameras are more than likely to be changed with the passage of time..?


The 50mm is a fine lens though perhaps if you are photographing just head and shoulders, some facial features can get slightly distorted..?  If you want to get REALLY close then a set of extension tubes are an inexpensive way of trying out MACRO with your 50mm..? 


Hope you have a lot of enjoyment with your new acquisition(s)  (-:
