Thanks for the input. I had pretty much decided on the 55-300 DX lens until I saw that the Nikon outlet has a refurbished 70-300 on sale for $299. That is only around $50 more than the refurbished 55-300. For that price would you go for the 70-300?

For that price, the 70-300 lens is probably not the VR version.

Check again to be sure.

No, I think it is. The non-VR is much cheaper brand new than even that. That's a good price. It still boils down to size and weight as well as $50. Again, if I were going to stay in DX with that D3100 for a while, I'd get the DX lens. It's light weight and easy to use.
