    For my D70, price range 200-300.

    I went into one of my local retailers and the guy gave to options he thought would be viable, but i'm unsure of the quality of these

    Nikkor 55-200 f4-5.6 £179
    Sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 £199

    I had the sigma for my maxxum and loved it
    it was a great lense for the money and plus it has the macro feature too
    the zoom is fairly fast but a great lense for the money

    For the money you have, I would look at a Nikon Nikkor 70-300 ED AF. A good sharp lens for the money. Nikon also has a 70-300 "G" lens that is not as sharp but about half the price. I have the ED and it's a good lens for packing light and having enough glass to reach out and touch someone.
