    Hi,

    I recently purchased a Nikkor 70-300 AF G and I'm not very happy with it's performance. It's quite soft and suffers from purple fringing. The question is how the newer and better version compares to this lens? I'd really appreciate is someone could post sample photos of those 2 lenses compared side by side (for example at 100, 200 & 300mm).

    Thanks, Paul

    Too expensive :( and I like the idea of the extra 100mm.

    Well, the 80-200 F2.8 is a good choice if its not too expensive. The FoV will give you the equivalent of 300mm. I don't know much about the 70-300 G lens, but I have heard that the VR version is amazing.
