Personally I would not use Ebay to buy a camera lens. I would go to a store and tell them what you can spend and ask for the best lens for what you want to do. If you buy on ebay you will not be able to test the lens for front and back focus problems.

D 300 is a great camera and compatible with most of the Nikon F mount, Manual, AF or AF-S. You can find a lot of offers in the brand new or used market. Try E-Bay.

Wild life


First, turn off the Macro setting. That's for close subjects, not far ones. With it on, the lens will not focus past a certain distance.

Second, the camera doesn't know whether you're taking a picture of some bushes or of a fox. In this case it's going to have a tendency to focus on the nearer object. So, turn off the autofocus and focus manually.

The 70-300 is less expensive and lighter. The 100-400 has a longer reach. Only you can decide which factors are the most important to you.

Hi This is Mac from bangalore. Recently i bought a Nikon D80. I love to take wildlife & nature photography. what lens can u suggest. i already have a 18-135mm lens that came as a kit. would be great if...


Mac, you will depending on the type of wildlife you are wanting to photograph you will probably need something marked with at least 300mm on it. Nikon have lenses in this range at different price levels. I suggest that you maybe look at the 75 - 300mm, from memory it has VR on it... important for use at the 300 mm setting to help reduce camera shake. Cheers Ian

I have a Nikon D-80 and I wish to buy a telephoto lens


Hi,
Sigma does make plenty lens option in both ranges you are looking at, you may want to consider a zoom lens that will work for you. What type of photography do you do? That will help determine your lens selection choices. keep in mind that it is more important to purchase the highest quality lens you can afford rather than several lower quality versions. If you are looking at a 300 mm lens to capture sporting events or nature photography you will have determine is it going to be daylight or low light because a lens that works in lower light situation will cost many times more than one with less capability. If you like the wide angle to take photos of interiors the same goes as far a price. You may also want to consider your camera's brand of lens, the Nikkor lens and even look a the VR lenes (vibration Reduction). There is an 18-200mm1:3.5-5.6 that is pretty versitile and will work in a lot of situations from portraits to full standing poses and take great interior shots. The VR lenses are a little more pricey but allow you to hand hold the camera for pretty slow exposures. I know that is a lot to think about but it's important not to waste you hard earned money on lens combinations that won't be useful for what you want to shoot.

Trouble focusing with sigma 70-300 DL macro super lens


It will not focus on anything closer than 5 feet.

(From Sigma lens literature)
Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.
