I'm planning on buyingmy first telephoto zoom lense and would like some comments on the 70-300 f/4-5.6G and the 70-300mmf/4-5.6EDlense. I'm planning on using it for sports and landscape.Is the $50-$60 between theG and ED worth it.

Also any comments or suggestion would be very helpful. I only have a $200-$220 to purchase something. That's about all the money I'm able to scrounge up throughout a long period of time.

Thanx

I don't think you will see much difference betwen the G and ED if ANY. The ED is heavier. PERSONALLY I would go withthe "G" . . .WAIT - I DID go with the "G". I got mine for $134 from ONECALL!

There's also the Sigma APO Macro Zoom II 70-300, about $200 plus it has macro capabilities.

I've been thinking about getting a Sigma. Will the macro feature of Sigma APO Macro Zoom II 70-300detractthe quality of shooting non-macro subjects such as landscape or wildlife.

I own the Nikon 70-300G but for a few dollars extra the Sigma 70-300 apo macro super II seems to be a better choice. I have seen pictures taken with it and it looks sharper then the Nikon 70-300G and you have the macro as a bonus.
