Best Zoom For A Nikon D70s?

Wed Mar 08, 2006 7:00 pm

Hey all.

I just upgraded from my Nikon N80 (which I broke at the Paris Air Show) to a D70s, so I'm learning the digital thing, and I already am having a ball with it. It's great not dealing with film! Anyway, I'm using a somewhat damaged 28-200mm from my N80, so it's not a CPU lens. My only other lens is a f2.8 20mm. So before I go spend a bunch of money, I'd like to ask from those with experience, for specifically airline picture shooting, what telephoto seems to work out the best for you?

Thanks for the input.

Matt, I use a 28-200AF-ED at the moment with no worries. I am waiting for a new 18-200VR to arrive which is on order. I also use an 80-400 for long-distance work. Not the best but certainly not the worse.

Hope this helps
