    First of thanks for the help with choosing my new camera and lens, I'm more than happy.
    what i'd like to know this time is if you had to pick, which of these two lenses would you go for.
    The sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO macro DG
    or the nikkor 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G IF ED AF
    Thanks Alan

    The Nikon probably has a more useful range, depending on what you're doing.

    If I'd of done a little more research/had more money before buying the Sigma, I would've bought the Nikon 28-200 simply because it's more versatile. That said, I love that Sigma lens like it's my first born child. Always gives me beautiful results, especially at the "macro" setting.

    I've got the Nikon 18-70, it's just i miss my 10x zoom i had on my Kodak dx
    Think I'll go for the sigma, thnx for the replies.
    I always like to get my info off people who actually use the equipment.
