Sigma 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 EX OS APO vs Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF
Dec 1, 2004

Santa Claus is bringing me a D70 for christmas. I can't wait!

I am looking to get a lens to complete the kit lens for nature pics and bird pics. I think the 70-300 (from Sigma or Nikon) will not be long enough and the VR or OS seems to be a big advantage, so I have narrowed my choices to the two 80-400 lenses.

Anybody care to comment on the quality of these two lenses.

Thanks!

Yves
