    Does anyone have a recommendation for a inexpensive ($150) telephoto
    zoom lens in the 300 mm range for the Nikon D70?

    thanks,
    Dan

    The 70-300 is an okay lens for the price. I paid A$250 about
    a year ago. I broke the plastic mount though, but was repaired on
    warranty. Not sure if the D is faster, I thought it as the
    same 4-5.6?

    The sharpness at 300 is best at f/11 though. Optically, there
    probably isn't much between the g and the d. I have a 300/2.8,
    and image quality of that is better than the G at f/11 when its
    at 2.8. So that beats the G hands down, but weighs about 10 times
    the G and costs about 20 times more.

    Regards,
    Vin.
