Need help identifying differences between these lenses

I plan to get into photography, starting with a "low end" DSLR recommend to me by a friend, the Nikon D3400. I also plan to purchase an all-round lens for portraits, landscapes, architecture, etc. I had just two questions. What's the different between these two lenses other then focal length, price, and design? And do you believe the ~$400 NZD increase for the 16-300mm is worth the cost?

What two lenses? And we generally deal with Canon products here. See the big "Canon" at the top of the page?

"I also plan to purchase an all-round lens for portraits, landscapes, architecture, etc."

 

I don't know what you are talking about either but I think you will be better off buying a P&S instead of a DSLR.

 

"...do you believe the ~$400 NZD increase for the 16-300mm is worth the cost?"

 

I have no idea what this is either but anything with a 16-300mm zoom range isn't worth ~$4 NZD let alone 400, whatever that is!

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, along with less other stuff.

I believe NZD = "New Zealand Dollars".

 

But it's not just you, Ernie. The spell checker doesn't seem to like "Zealand"!

 

Actually, I wouldn't mind being in NZ just now. It's been ridiculously cold here lately.
