This lens cost about $330. A generic equivalent w/ aplastic lens is about $179.

Is it worth the price difference? It'll allow one to go all the way to 450 mm focal length.

The ED glass is a great purchase to make, for a pile of reasons. First of all, that lens is one of Nikon's most popular, it has great performance, it is reasonably priced, and should you want to sell it later, you won't have much of a problem. Other lenses may be cheaper, but they won't hold a candle to it for overall image quality. The differences will seem negligible if you are only doing 4x6s, but for bigger prints and professional quality, you'll appreciate the quality.

I think he's refering to the "G" series by Nikon which doesn't have the ED in it.

That being the case take a look at the Sigma 70-300mm APO Super Macro II.
