Hi,

Any ideas on what good (but cheap ) zoom lens to for my D70. My budget is a bit tight :roll:. Are the Sigma lenses any good?? - they don't seem that expensive compared to the Nikkor lenses. Any comments would be much appreciatd.

Actually I was looking at this range for my Canon and found the two Sigmas to be the best in this range:

... BTW they are both fast and silent ultrasonic lenses with full-time manual AF overide!

Don't know much about the Sigma's i'm afraid, but this thread gives a few details of my experience with the Nikon 70-300mm 4.5/5.6 G lens, and its problems. (which aren't really problems considering the price of it imo)

Hope this helps a bit.


edit: haha just looked at Sigma's that NHL suggested and realised the lens' your looking at are actually in a different league to mine :-)lol
