55-300 VR vs 70-300 VR
Apr 11, 2012

Hi all,

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Going on a safari in a few months and need a long VR lens for wildlife.

Ken Rockwell seems to suggest the 70-300 VR over the 55-300 and while I'll agree there's a difference in build quality all I care about is price and performance at 200-300mm.

Anyone have thoughts to share about these two lenses?

Thanks.
