    Question Which New Lens ?

    I have just got my first DSLR a nikon d5100 with 18-55 lens.I have been using my trusty P90 superzoom up till now.
    I do a bit of travelling and want an all round zoom lens to travel with which is reasonably light and a good all rounder .I have been looking at the nikon dx 55-200
    or 70-300mm as i want it to work in auto focus
    Any suggestions ?
    Cheers

    Hi Dave

    I have the Nikon 70 300 and have had the 55 200 of the two lenses the 70 300 is a far better lens, it will auto focus really fast, with little or no fringing, and comes with VR2,The Sigma 70 300 OS is also worth a look. Hope this helps... Graham

    I was thinking some thing like that as it would save having to carry around and keep changing lenses but looking at all options

    you could look at a tamron and sigma, the down side to these lenses is that they are a compromise so what do you shoot
