Well, I might have found my answer, short term anyway.  I managed to pick up a 70-210 Vivitar Series 1 Version 1 lens for £15.  Add another £5 for lens caps and filter and I might have a decent enough long fast zoom for £20, a tenth of the price (at most) of the cheapest Sigma or Nikon offerings, with pretty decent glass if you read Ken Rockwell (and others).  Guess we see how that one works.  When I get paid for a bit of authoring I have done I am in the market for a used D300 to hopefully get the best out of this and the Series E 135mm f2.8 I also own.  We'll see.  Might be able to get better out of the Pentax fast portrait lenses I have too (with adaptor).
