chuck 55-300 cost about $400/ but when you get D5100 in bundle, you get for $250/ so it is good deal,

you mind tell the diff bet 70-300 than 55-300. is the sharpness better in 70-300? and what technical feature that makes it better ?

The 70-300 is a FX full frame lens.  In most cases, the best part of the glass is the central region, so in this case, when you shoot DX,  you're getting the best part of a lens that is already built better with glass that was of a higher quality AFAIK.

Of course you are paying for that.  I see that the 70-300 is actually closer to 600 dollars.

You can try renting it at or - both of whom I've used and think highly of.
