What is the best ultra zoom.
1 month ago

One of my favorite things to do is take photos on a whale watching boat.....While there are times my 80 to 400 is pretty good for this, there are times when the 80mm end is just too long.  Most of the time I use an 18 to 200, the old version, but at times 200 mm is just a bit short. So what I am asking, what may suit me better I would like at least as good a photo quality lens as what I have but maybe end up at 300.......

Which  are the better lens at a reasonable price point.

18 t0300

28 to 300........55 to 300........18 to 270,  the new 18 to 200, or maybe something I have not considered.....I left out the 70 to 300 as I believe the 70 end is too long.

Thanks for any opinions you can offer
