Choosing a zoom lense
Hi Champs,
I am using Nikon D5100 DLR and I have Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX NIKKOR and Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX lenses. I like both of them and specially 35 mm prime one. I would like to buy another zoom lense. Can you guide me which lense would be good for zoom and also compatible with my gear. I have thought of the following lenses :
1> Tamron SP 70-300mm f4-5.6 VC
2> Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR.
3> AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

Can you help me on this also please let me know if you have some other lense in your mind which can produce good quality image and compatible. I know that it is more importent how we are using the lense but still initial idea will be helpful for me.

Many thanks,
Sunandan Saha

Nikon is all right
Hello Sunandan,

the Nikon 70/300 mm is the most lens for D5100 .

Certainly , it's better .

I suppose it depends on your requirements for sharpness, image quality, etc. Many are satisfied with the Sigmas, others think the Canon produces sharper, better pics. You can do a google search and get plenty of opinions and reviews on these lens. If you like a more blurred background effect the Canon is better, if you like better image stabilization then Sigma has better "OS". There are also plenty of images from each lens in the lens sample archive section.
