I purchased the D750 with the 24-120 kit lens (after using a D90 with 18-200 lens for 9 years) and have found that I don't always have enough reach for zooming in to take pictures of birds or things in the distance.  I am traveling to South America at the end of the month and want to by an additional lens for this purpose.  We will be in the Galapagos (which is where I think I would want the extra reach), as well as Machu Picchu, Peru, Igauacu Falls, Buenos Aires, and Rio de Janeiro.  I was...

With my Nikon D5500, I have the following lenses available: AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G ED VRII AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm F4-5.6 G ED VR DX AF-S Nikkor 18-140mm F3.5-5.6 G ED VRII DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 GII VRII DX (kit lens) AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.8 G AF-S Nikkor 35mm F1.8 G I mostly do photography around my school for the yearbook (sports, candids, portraits, etc.). I'd assume I should keep one prime (35mm and keep the 50mm for portraits) and the 18-140mm. Is there any reason why I...

Apologies for the clickbaity title! First post, bit of a doozy of a question. Been looking at upgrading from my 70-300 VR zoom for ages, and just cannot decide on what to buy and hoping for some input. Currently I've narrowed it down to the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR I or the Nikon 70-200 f/4. I would prefer the Nikon over the Sigma/Tamron as whilst they're good, frankly I just want the lenses to work reliably on my nikon bodies. I also have a Nikon 50-300 I never use but bought extremely...

Hello, I need some help making a decision. I currently have my d7100 with 50mm 1.4D, AF-S 70-300mm and a 18-200mm. The 18-200 replaced my kit 18-105 lens for a trip to Europe last fall (I wanted an all-in-one lens for the trip to save space and weight). I have used my 70-300 on a number occasions at sporting events or while camping, in the woods, at the beach (only 3-4 times a year maybe). I was very pleased with results but at the same time quite annoyed with having to constantly switch...

Hi, I have a Sigma 70-300 F4-5.6 D APO which I am using on my D7000, is there much improvement if I went to a Tamron SP 70-300mm f4-5.6 Di or Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Thanks

Ok, so I'm a beginner at photography and I made a silly mistake at not taking photos with a lens before buying it. Ok so the lens is the nikon 70-300mm and the camera is a Nikon d5500, it the second one that they released which has an swm and so on. the problem is that on the sides of the photo its out of focus, is it some aperture setting or are the lenses misaligned. if so can it be repaired and will it be costly? Thanks, Brandon.

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...

Ok I`m about to buy 1 of those beauties for my D3300, I haven't seen 1 professional comparison review and I`m asking the photographers here who work or tested those 2 lenses to help me decide which is better overall. Thanks
