    I'm just curious to see what the opinions are for these lenses because I don't really know much about them. I tried to put them in categories I could have gotten mixed up on some. In the attempted groups, which is the better one?


    -Nikon 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Micro-Nikkor Lens
    -Tamron 18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 AF Di-II LD Aspherical (IF) Macro Lens

    -Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR Zoom Nikkor Lens
    -Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR [Vibration Reduction] Zoom Nikkor Lens
    -Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di-II LD SP ZL Aspherical (IF) Zoom Lens with Built In Motor
    -Tamron AF 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 SP AD Aspherical (IF) Lens
    -Tamron AF 28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical Lens

    -Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR ED Nikkor



    I'm definitely a lens n00b so I would appreciate it if you gave opinions on the quality of whichever ones you know about :]
    I especially don't know anything about Tamron.

    [PS: I have a Nikon d70, I'm new to photography]

    You can find lens reviews all over the Internet if you do a little searching.

    Places like www.dpreview.com are good. Not all lenses are reviewed there though.
