18-105 VR replacement suggestions
5 months ago

Hi all,

I have a Nikon D7000 for a couple of months now and I'm very satisfied with it. I mostly shoot people and landscape with occasional need for a telephoto.

So far I have a kit 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 VR lens and was thinking about selling it and buying these two:

Tamron 28-75 f/2.8
Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 VC

I'm curious about your comments: would you recommend this purchase and what would you buy if you were in my position? I'm on a limited budget here and can't afford spending much more then these two are worth.

Is there any other combination of lenses (or only one?) that are as sharp as these two in their respective ranges, taking their prices into account as well. Or in other words, I'm looking for some kind of a best buy for the money.

Some time in the future I'd probably add a third one (wide angle), but for now 28-300 mm range will probably fulfill 99% of my needs.

Thanks!

Nick
