...taking pics of planes landing or taking-off. Or just any pics of planes. What camera is good for that? What lens? Thanks very much in advance for your help!

Best Regards,

It doesn't work that way, you don't use a camera for planes, one for cars, one for boats, one for persons, one for landscapes, one for close ups, one for flowers, etc. etc.

You buy a 35mm AF camera able to be manual also and start to learn and develop your techniques. If you don't need that much zoom a 35-70mm lens is enough but if you want to look closer (and to shoot planes away from you) it's better to buy a more powerful lens such as a 70-210mm or 100-300mm.

A 75-210 or 100-300 are both great lenses for aircraft shots....landings, takeoffs or whatever.
