    macro flower is its strong point with that lens - it really shines with that sort of work.
    The softer 300mm you can see when you start using the lens for more far off subjects. Its a good lens for the money and will give a good go at almost anything/

    How does the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 compare to a Nikon 70-210 f/3.5 Vivitar Series 1 Macro?

    Now that I bought my Sigma, I learned that a friend is selling his Vivitar for half the price :-\
    I still have the 30-day return policy.

    Sorry but whilst I know the sigma from my canon dealings, I don't know anything about the nikon line of lenses -
