Hi, I'm planning to buy a dslr camera without a kit lens and buy a good lens separately. My supervisor is advising me to buy a camera that has a focusing motor built in so that I could have a option in the future to buy lenses that doesn't have a focusing motor built inside of it and it would cost much less. I'm considering that advice a good one but when I did some research I found that recently nearly every new lenses are coming with focusing motor built in. So, if I buy a camera body that...

Which among the following 2 lens is better in terms of image sharpness and image quality. Sigma 70-300 F/4-5.6 DG Macro Tamron A17(AF 70-300) F/4-5.6 Di LD MACRO I understand that both these lens are very budget lens and the image sharpness will be nothing more than average. However I would be getting it for free and got to choose among one of them. I shall be using them on Canon 1100D for now, which I will soon upgrade to Canon 70D. So which one should it be?

Hello, Some time ago I bought the K-01 and gave it later to my father. He mentioned he would like to have a telephoto lens, and after some research I think I'm going to get him the Tamron AF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro. He doesn't shoot a lot and it's purely amatuer, so I'm not looking for anything too fancy, and price plays here a big role. That's why considering the features of this lens (long reach, some kind of macro) I think it might be a decent choice. I wanted to ask, though, if...

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...

Hi , I have a Nikon D5100 camera and I am planning to get a Tamron 70 - 300 mm lens. I am not sure if the lens will have the auto focus functionality when fitted with the camera as the camera does not have an inbuilt auto focus motor. Also similarly I have the same question on the Sigma 70 - 300mm lens . Please help me

I am an amateur photographer who's dream is to become a sports photographer - mainly in football. The question i have is whether or not i should invest in some new equipment especially suited to sports photography. I currently have a Nikon D3000, which i purchased about a year ago to help get me started and to feel comfortable with using a digital SLR. This came with a standard Nikon 18-55mm lens and i also received a Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens for Christmas. I realise that...

I am looking to buy a new entry level DSLR. I've been using a Canon S3is which has served me well for 6 years. The camera has died recently and I want to upgrade to a DSLR. I am interested in landscape and macro photography. Occasionally I take pictures in low light and at night. Not a big fan of post processing.  I also own a Raynox DCR 150 lens with a 1,5 magnifying capability which I have used with the S3is.  Problem is I can't decide on what camera to buy. I have read reviews and I have...

Hi Folks, I have bought a SLT A57 camera few months back. Now am planning to buy my first lens(other than the 18-55mm Kit lens & a 50mm f1.8 which I got with the camera). I am interested in sports, so I would be doing some sports photography when I get opportunity. I travel a bit also, so I will be doing a bit of wildlife photography also. So after some thought, I think I have come to a conclusion that I need a telephoto zoom lens. But am on a budget :-| Some of the lenses in my reach are as...

My question is:  Is it totally compatible with the D5100?  and...
