That's correct.

equal cost? better performance?
Of the ones listed here, the Nikon 70-300 is best. But of the rest, the Tamron is at least as good as the others, and it has less vignetting and distortion.

Is the 18-105 performance better than 18-55?
Where their ranges overlap, the 18-105 is better than the 18-55, though the 18-105 has more distortion. (If you'll be shooting a lot of architecture, you might want to get the 18-55, or something else, instead.)

No.

Thanks TCav...it is great to have you sharing your knowledge!!!

ummm...which would be a good pair to match with the 70-300, if I can go for something better than the 18-55 or the 18-105???
Without going too high in price?

suggestions for good prime lens keeping the price at a reasonable level?

Sigma's 17-70mm f/2.8-4.0 is a good option for a standard lens.

The 50/1.8 is a good option for a reasonably priced fast prime. The 1.8G is better than the 1.8D.

The body doesn't matter as much as the lenses.

Find the quality lenses you can afford that will do what you want, and buy the body that you can use them with.

Hmm 70D.... can't wait to see how the dual pixel tech' fares on "still" quality...
A plus for movie shooters of course- and those who like to use their flippy screens...
