Hi all Photography Enthusiast,
I have a camera Nikon D5100 with 18-55 lense. I am looking for a zoom lense and confused with
1. Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
2. Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Feature wise both are almost equal other Lens mount that Fx and Dx.
Can you suggest one of this considering a usage of amature photographer ?
Thanks and Regards,
The 55-300 is a DX lens ( you have a DX camera ) so the focal length will be 55-300
The 70-300 is an FX lens ( you have a Dx camera but can use it ) so you will have an effective focal length of 105 to 450
I would think the 70-300 is the better lens and it's good if you ever switch to full frame but that leaves a gap in your range between 55 and 105. A range where you'd probably do a fair bit of shooting. But maybe not.
Get rid of the 18-55 and get an 18-105 or even ( my choice ) an 18-70 ( no VR though ) and put the 70-300 with it, and you've pretty much got it all covered,
