    Sample shots...thoughts..etc?

    I'm interested....I am currently without a telezoom right now so I'm considering my options.

    I can't justify 1700 on a lens..not for my needs anyway.

    Nothing that requires a $1700 lens.

    If I did professional work sure..but I don't..

    80-200 will be the closest I come to a 70-200 unless I start getting paid for anything I produce. :o

    And I also am still learning everything..before I drop 1700 on a lens I want to have a more solid grasp of what exactly it is I'm doing.getting a consistently proper exposure and composition.

    practice makes perfect... I've only been 'doing' it for a little over a year.

    Me too..and I know this..but I just can't justify that much. :o

    I am seriously considering the 80-200 though..and that's probably what I'll get..just wanting to know everyone's opinion of the 70-300 VR. :o

    I also think it would be kind of dumb to get a 70-200VR when all I have is a D50..but what do I know? :dunno:

    I'm considering the 70-300 too, seems like a pretty good price for such a good range.

    In for answers.
