ALL the lenses are good! lol

It always comes down to YOUR needs! The differences in these lenses are minute, as I have owned them all......What are YOUR needs? if you need reach and zoom than the 200-400 is your ticket. Low light indoor, action, the 200.2.0 is the ticket, with a very good 70-200 honorable mention on the fast D3. Wildlife, outdoor with added reach? The Sigma 500 4.5 ( No Brainer) reach and cost factor combined with sharp images. Cost not an issue? Nikon 600 4.0 VR esp. on the D3 where 600mm is still not enough. Add the 1.4 TC or 1.7 and now your talking good reach and VR
Peace, dave
