    I will do - I'll be taking it to Spain for a "test drive" for 6 weeks in May/June.

    I also have a D300, and find that the Nikon 18-200mm lens VR will cover most subjects, but I also use a Sigma 10-20mm ultra wide angle which is great for weddings etc. Also I use a Sigma 120-400mm IS lens for sport photography and this works just great. For Macro I use a Sigma 70mm f2.8, again a great performer. Hope this is of use, and in case you wonder why I use Sigma so much, it's because they are much cheaper and still do a great job.

    Hi there, about the Sigma wide angle, I use the Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 on my D300 and have to say that it is brilliant. I have 3 other lenses by the same name and have always found the images they produce sharp and extremely good. Hope this is of use, all the best.

    Hi Lloyd, I have a D300 and find that the lens I use most of all is my Nikon 18-200mm with two stage VR. Don't forget that the DX sensor in the D300 means that the focal length of any lens is multiplied by 1.5. Now the 18-200mm becomes a 27-300, which will suffice for most occasions. It really is a great lens. I also have a Sigma 10-20mm f3.5, and a Sigma 120-400mm which is great for wildlife and sports. For macro I use my Sigma 70mm f2.8, and this also does a great job. As I've already stated though, my 18-200 covers most requirements. Hope this helps, all the best, Mike.
