Hello

I'm "point and shooter" trying to learn more with my newD70 Outfit. I want something to bring the action of my girl's soccer games a little closer to me, but can't justify buying a really expensivezoom lens both for money reasons and I still don't really know what the heck I'm doing.


For a similar price I have found two Nikon AF lenses: 70-300 f4-5.6G and an 80-200 4.5-5.6D. Will I see a big difference in these two? I realize they are both at the lower end of the typical Nikkor lens (plastic, China, etc.), but, I'm thinking that using either will enlighten me to whether I really needthe bigger faster lenses with this camera for soccer games.

I have the Nikon 70-300G and i got a couple of decent soccer shot with it. And at around $100usd you can't go wrong. For a little more you canget the sigma 70-300 APO Macro Super II which is sharper and will give you so macro possibilities as well.
