    I'm thinking about getting a new lens for my dads Nikon D70. When I have the money for my own camera I'll probably invest in the D50 or something else if they've come with something new by then. Therefore it makes sense to invest in a lens for my dads digital rather than my budget canon film slr. My dad lets me use his D70 most of the time anyway.

    I'm currently looking at the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro (Nikon AF) available from Jessops at http://www.jessops.co.uk/Store/s267...aspx?&IsSearch=y&pageindex=1&CatId=143&comp=y.
    I was just wondering if anyone would advize against this.

    I posted a mini-review of the Sigma 70-300 lens on my blog.

    Basically, if you're looking for a reasonable quality zoom lens on a budget, it's a pretty good choice. Just don't be expecting miracles.
