Thread: Help with Tamron/Sigma Lenses

    Default Help with Tamron/Sigma Lenses

    Hi all, I need help with getting a 70-300mm lens, I'm looking for either Tamron and Sigma ones because it's cheaper(i'm on a tight budget), and it needs to have a internal motor as I'm on a D60. Does anyone have recommendations?

    Both Tamron and Sigma ones have built-in motor ones for your D60. If u asked me, the Sigma one has better built quality and colours than Tamron, that also explains the higher price due to APO.
