I realize that the D-10 is new but can any one that shots a D-60 or 30 please help.
I am looking to buy a D-10 and would like info on some telephoto lenses maybe that go to 300mm with the 1.6X of the camera that will go to
480mm. Zoom would be better for me. Image stabilizer a plus but not necessary. Canon or any other make.

I am looking to shoot sports and of course take pictures that are good enough to get accepted here.

Thanks in advance.

OK, the best if money is no object are a 70-200 f/2.8 L IS USM and an 100-400 L IS USM (or similar lenses).
Add a 17-35 f/2.8 L USM (or whatever Canon produces in that range) and you have an excellent set of lenses.

Sigma EX and Tokina ATX lines are also very good indeed (just a tad less optically (maybe, some may even be better, and a lot cheaper than their Canon equivalents).

Before someone askes:
The Canon 70-200mm "L" is about $1200
The Canon 100-400mm "L" is about $1400

Yes they are $$$$$ but there is nothing better than the "L" series of lesnes!

P.S. its the Canon 10D not the D-10  Big grin

Well I wish I could say that money is not a option but it is these are the lenses I am looking at:

Sigma 15-30mm F3.5-4.5 $550
Canon EF 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 $360
Sigma 170-500mm (I all ready have this lens) $650

Any info on these 3 would be appreciated like speed of focus and sharpness with a DSLR

I have had the Sigma 170-500 for a bit longer than my D60. Nice lens, but a bit slow with the af. When I could afford it I bought the 100-400 L IS Canon lens. Well worth it. I keep the Sigma as back up.

Just perfect... nothing wrong with that lense and the D60. Just take a look at my pics. All of them are with that lens.

I can tell a thing or two about Sigma, well four : STAY CLEAR OF THEM !
I have had a Sigme 70-300 APO Macro for the last year where it conspired to make me miss HZ-HM5 (SV L-1011, last built) and A6-YAS (Amiri Flight 747-400) when it refused to work. It finally fell apart when I was at FRA, luckily I still had the 28-105 USM II. I now have a 75-300 IS USM II (I haven't won the lottery so I can't afford an "L" series lens - Titan Airways please take note  Smile/happy/getting dizzy) and it still takes pretty good pics for half of the third of the quarter of the price of a 100-400 L IS USM.
