OOOOOOOOH yeaaaaaaah. lol, lenses make a massive difference. The problem? They usually cost more than the camera if you want a good one. I just ordered a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens tonight for my Canon EOS Rebel T2i, it is rated one of the best lenses for the price. (I got it for $150, regularly $250-300) But if you ever get the chance, look up the difference between a standard lense and its 'L' (luxury) counterpart. I wouldnt worry too much about skill because you will learn with experience and by trying new things, just look up different techniques and how to use your "grid".It depends what you want to do... But basically any Nikon or Canon will be great, and what will make a difference is getting a good lens, and your photography skills of course!
