Hello fellow photographers!
I'm thinking about buying a new lens soon and I need some help!
I've decided to get a telezoom lens, but before I made my purchase I thought I would throw my picks around here on the old blog and see if any other photographers had any recommendations or suggestions.
Do you own a zoom lens?
If not, do you have one on your wish list??
These are the 3 I've been looking at:
Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G (here on Amazon)
The 55-200mm has good reviews and has even been called one of Nikon's best budget lenses. Apparently the only drawback is it has a plastic lens mount. This is the cheapest of the 3 I'm listing and very light weight.
Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G (here on Amazon)
The 55-300 has been stated to be great for wildlife photography, and let's face it, I love my nature shots! It's been reviewed to be the same as the 55-200mm but it has a metal lens mount and obvious extra zoom.
Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-5.6G (here on Amazon)
This one is a couple hundred dollars more than the first two, and frankly might be a bit out of my price range. The reviews state nice bokeh and fast auto focusing (occasional trouble at 300mm). Focus is silent.
So, what do you think?
Do you own any of these?
Any advice or suggestions would be great.
I want to use this for traveling and wildlife bird photographs. I think I might use for some sports and portraits too. I wish I could play around with these before I make up my mind but that's where I'm hoping you can help me. Be my eyes! THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
