New Tele-zoom to finish out my lens set?
Mar 30, 2012

So i have spent the last year or so upgrading my lenses and consolidation (quality over quantity, and FX over DX), while having an ability to cover most any conditions.

The only gaps that i need to fill are a true macro, and a tele-zoom. For macro, i am set on the Tokina 100mm 2.8 (which i hear is a great lens for the value).

Currently, i have an older cheapish Nikon 70-300 f/4-5.6D ED. Its OK, but i would not trust it very much outside of ideal shooting conditions. On the flip side, i do not use this range all too much, so i dont need to go all out in terms of cost.

That being said, are there reasonable cost/quality lens options out there that are worth the effort to upgrade from what i have now?

The newer nikon 70-300 VR? Sigma 70-300mm DG OS?
Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC? Tokina 80-400/4.5-5.6 AT-X ?
