    Which would you recommend for my Nikon D3000. The Nikon 70-300mm F/4.5-5.6 or the Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3. It will be used for landscapes, wildlife, etc.

    Thanks,
    Dannie

    For the money go w/ sigma lenses. I have had great results w/ them. Some people may dissagree but they work for me. The only hassel is no VR w/ the sigmas.....and can be a problem at 300mm and no trypod! Good luck, Dave

    If the 70-300mm Nikon lens you mentioned is this one

    Nikkor AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 D ED

    The lens may not be able to AF with your camera.


    This one can
    Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G IF-ED VR



    As for which one to choose, you are comparing 2 different types of lens. A super zoom type lens (the Tamron) and the telephoto zoom lens (The Nikon). However, out of the 2, only the Tamron 18-270mm cover the wide angle side and usually people use wide angle lens more in landscape type shots.
