Hi all, i have a D5100, and I'm planning a safari in Etosha (Namibia) in september: would the Tamron 70-300 VC (or the Nikon 70-300 VR) worth the extra money and wight compared to the kit lens 55-200 VR? I'm currently quite happy of the 55-200, light, decent autofocus, good sharpness, it's relatively slow, but I used it only in daylight on the alps, the only really bad thing is the manual focus ring. in your experience passing from equivalent 300mm to 450mm is it really worth? is the quality...

I simply want to know if I buy a 70-300 that is a FX lense (for what I understand)... When I'll shoot with it at 300 (on a DX body) will I shoot the same picture that a 55-300 (DX lens) at 300 would?

Hi all, This is my first post on DPReveiw. In preparing a wildlife trip, I'm looking for a reasonable telephoto lens that suits my Nikon D7100 body (DX sized sensor). The sole lens I have, is a portrait zoom (Sigma 17-70mm "C") which also sees landscape use most of the time, but for the next trip I'll need (much) more focal length. Since I try to shoot without tripod when possible, and due to luggage limitations, I'd like to avoid carrying a heavy lens that needs a permanent tripod mount, so...

I have hunted around to answer this question without starting a thread and my results seem to be a mixed bag so I thought I would ask directly! I recently bought a used Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED on Ebay. The seller claimed it was "As New" used for less than 4 hours but I suspect that was just a fib told to help sell the lens (I also noticed he had sold another of these lenses about a year prior. Not sure what to make of that). I bought this lens to upgrade my kit 55-300mm DX lens that came...

I'm looking at a kit, D5300 and Nikkor 70-300 f4-5.6 w/SWM for outdoor sports, soccer and swim - typically sunny to blistering sunny. Looking to find out... hit/miss rates, any focus speed issues, posted samples... how well this combo will work? Will I need a 7000/7100? Any input will help! Thanks  Dave

Hello, I'm in a bit of dilemma. I own D5100, 18-55 mm kit, 35 mm f/1.8G and 70-300 mm VR and my shooting interests include - portraits, toddlers in action, travel, nature, landscapes, monuments and architectures and macros. So far, for portrait purpose, I was using 70-300 mm which is a very good lens except for its AF hunts in low light situations. So I'm considering buying a used 85mm f/1.8G. Is it a correct decision? I'm afraid this lens make my 70-300 mm obsolete - is that so? Or should I...

Is it past practice or likely that a manufacturer, specifically Nikon, would offer discounts on cameras, specifically D7100, during or shortly after Photokina? STOP reading here if you would like to answer the question. The following is anecdotal and contains no further questions, mearly a background on my reason for asking. You nave been warned. So, I have weathered a long, 10-year research project (read: I finally have a D-SLR penciled into the budget) and while the mythical D400 is my...
