just arrived on time from BH. Its a nice lens and not too heavy... its got the standard 70-300 (105-450) zoom which is pretty versatile. the macro function is alright, but still only 1:2.focusing isa little bit noisy (especially compared to the 18-55 kit lens with my d50) but nothing im going to woryy about.in all actuality the focus is pretty good... hunts a little in low contrast and light but thats totally normal for this lens. (nothing surprising)i just needed more reach than 55!its seems pretty sharp wide open but looks better stopped down 1 or 2 steps. this is the perfect addition to a starting lens collection and is great for the price (mine was $219 at bh) im sure ill have it for about a year than i will upgrade to the 100-300 f4 most likely... but then again that 50-500 looks pretty attractive... who knows... ill see when the tme comes... for now im going to enjoy my new toy!

I'm going to buy this one Nikkor AF-G 70-300mm F/4,0-5,6, this one doesn't have macro, but I heard it's pretty good lens.

Would you like to post some test images with your sigma, so I get some idea what I'm going to get. You know I'm new to dSLR world.
