Hi,



There are Nikon G series 70-300 AF lenses around for $100 that seem tempting. Will these work on the D70? Seelers seem to say they work with the D100 but will they work with the D70?

It works well with the D70. Here is picture taken using that lens with my D70.

The autofocus is a little bit slow...but for $100 box dont expect to get AF-S focusing.

Yes, as Morris says this lens is somewhat of a bargain... obviously if you spend 3 times as much you'll get sharper images and better autofocus, but for the price its quite good.

The only issues I've had with the lens are purple fringing in high contrast areas, and again like Morris says AF is slow and clunky... (external too)

have a look at this thread from ages ago about this lens...

Thanks for the replies. I thought it was a bargain and will pick one up, even if it becomes a spare.

Thanks for the info and great pic.

6920,

This photo was taken with that lens on my D70, handheld from about 70 feet away. Shutter speed was 1/320s, Aperture f/8, zoom at 270mm.
