Best 400mm+ zoom lens for Nikon under $1000
2 months ago

I'm looking for a 400mm+ zoom lens for my D300S to replace the 70-300mm that I recently sold. 300mm just wasn't enough for what I used it for. I need something with more reach for shooting wildlife and at sporting events. Light is never a problem so I don't need a fast lens. I was looking at a used Nikon 80-400mm D lens or a sigma 120-400mm. Does anyone recomend either of those lenses or have another good lens that they would recommend? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
