    Jz got my D70s yesterday and the kit lens came along really not good enough for me. I want to zoom zoom and zoooommmmmmmm so I think so far my conclusion is I will bought it, since it was said as 'value buy'.

    Yup, I think I pretty agree with midicity that this is a day len. Provided with my skill now, even the kit len of D70s (18-70mm) already nearly become 'day len' liao! Huh, it's nearly as half lifeless if without SB 800, esp indoor.

    Thanks to you janzguy81 for the sharing. Oh, you make me feel like want to go to zoo right now (I like your sexy bear..). I tried with my cat this morning but seems like my cat shall live in the zoo with the monkeys..

    One more issue... if (did you saw the word IF here) I can't get any Sigma 70-300mm, can I get it in Nikon's brand? Well, I'm in a small town where people look at you with very very VERY funny look when you ask for a zoom lens like 70-300mm (actually they already look at you like that when you ask for a D70s, examine you from head to toe, esp if you're still in early twenties) and so far I only saw one 'bigger' camera shop here with a few ancient film lens and one AF Nikon 70-300mm. I doubt if the ppl here ever heard of 'Sigma'. So (after so much nagging) if I can't find Sigma here (poor me!) will Nikon AF 70-300 will do?
    don find any thing weird personally... a lot of people <20 are holding dSLR here (including me )
    Do note that the newer Nikon 70-300ED is about 600+ iirc... its the older one that is priced 200-300+, but im not sure if it is still in production. Most camera shop should know about Sigma/Tamron/Tokina, they are pretty old brand...

    and yes what setting were you using with ur d70s and 18-70? this setup should be able to give you some decent shots under good control in indoor lighting unless it is very dim...

    Hi Explorer,

    Oh, really? You're so young! I tot ur a senior citizen..(kiddin! Seriously! )

    Haha, here, in not so well developed town, I shall say we're a bit behind in eveything. No much afford to buy or no much youngster like photography. Envy you ler!

    Well, I have no much issue with lighting and now still busy experimenting with decent setup for me. I like total manual control so far, wow, they can make excelent pics!

    Probably I'll buy the old model one, not the one with VR. Hope I can get it

    70-300 sigma is a good tele lens to start with.
    but don count it too much for macro shot... it doesn't gives the sharpness like those real macro lenses.
    not to poison you, but here are some shots i took using this lens with my d50... nothing fantastic since im not a fantastic shooter as well.
