Thanks everyone. I am going to sell the old equipment and hopefully have enough for the 55-300 nikkor.


On a D5100 you will want AF-S for the AF to work. You may prefer the metering & AF of the newer lens.

You may also wait to see if Nikon has some holiday sales on lens or other items come spring. This winter's sales were mostly with camera + lens. They did sell the 70-300 VR for $200 off with camera.
