Hello All,

I am new to this forum (and to photography) and am looking for a..................

.........advice? I am going to the "Biggest Week in American Birding" the first week of May and hope to either rent or buy something in time for the trip. BTW, I am also considering renting a Canon camera, along with their IS version of the 300mm, but would much rather stick with the Nikon.



I wish the f4 version had VR. I have the f2.8 VR II but wouldn't mind to have the lighter F4 if it had VR.

I find VR so useful in the 300mm range. Opens up hand held photographing to a great degree, helps with TCs as well.

Anyway, go with the Nikon system if you are more familiar with it to start out with.
