Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 APO DG Macro Zoom Lens or Nikon 55-200mm AF-S VR?
Jul 7, 2010

Still looking to add a second lens... Wanted a macro lens, but can't afford a new one. So, I'm looking to add a second telephoto lens (already have the 15-55mm VR)

I would typically use this for my sons sports (outdoor), people (random) and cityscapes (I know a prime would be better for this, but don't wana pay for one). Maybe some up-close shots too (been doing it with the 18-55mm and although not the best results, not bad for a rookie). And can the sigma actually do macro? It's advertised that it can @ 2:1

Which one? suggestions?
