I'm a big fan of nature and animals. I've got myself a second hand D70 with the kit lens. However, a trip to the zoo showed that it's insufficient when the animals are so far away from me.
Could you recommend me a telephoto lens for my D70 that can allow me to really take animals up close and well as well. I have come across things like image stabilizers and all but given my shoestring budget, I won't be considering that. Will be getting a sturdy tripod instead.
