Hi,

I am just starting to do some more professional photography and are looking at investing in either a D100 or D70 (Not what I'm discussing) and need some help on buying a good lens.

I have a few in mind but am still very open to discussion

They include...
Sigma 50-500mm
Tamron 28-300mm
Nikkor 70-300mm (not as interested)

If anyone could give me some help on the best for longer range boundary shots to average 100 meter full frame shots it would be great!

I like the Sigma / tamron for their adjustablity (50-500) / (28-300).
Also sigma's quality however at a price!

So which is better value?

Any help would be great! Thanks

The Sigma. The Tamron (or any other wide-tele zoom) sucks in quality.

Nikkor 70-300mm ED. Cost little under $300 and it will give you good quality. But if I had the money I would go with Nikkor 80-400mm VR.

Nikkor 70-300mm ED I have just put up for sale as I haven't used it much since getting the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF lens.

The 70-300mm is good value for money and a good start until finances allow the purchase of the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF lens. The photos need quite a bit of post processing to get them accepted in comparison as well. The 70-200mm is brilliant for a variety of other photo situations too and I have used it for school football(Rugby) matches, a birthday celebration and some nature photography too. Email me through A.net contact and I can send some samples. Also check my photos on A.net for samples of both lenses as they are listed in the remarks field.

Cheers,
Colin
