    I want to get two lightweight lenses for my
    Nikon D100 that cover the range of 28mm to 300mm.
    I was thinking of the Nikon 24-120 VR and the
    Nikon 70-300 ED lenses. Does anyone have any
    experience with either of these, especially with
    a DSLR? If so, what do you think about them,
    especially sharpness and contrast? I used to
    have the Tamron 28-300 XR, but although it is
    tiny and lightweight, it is not very sharp.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Yes, I have both, which I use on my Nikon D1x. The snappy sharpness is
    outstanding in both. I gave up a Tamron 70-300 for the Nikon 70-300 ED, and
    there is definitely a difference. Go with the best you can afford when using
    the digital slr. I discovered that the hard way. If you can't afford the
    Nikon lenses, try Sigma. I just purchased a Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 APO EX RF
    Zoom Lens, and it is a very sweet piece of glass. I love the versatility it
    offers in one package. Hope this helps.
