how much zoom lens?
hi. new to this. thinking about getting a zoom lens for my nikon f65. heard there's a 70-300mm G lens. details below:
Nikkor 70-300 f/4~f/5.6G
Is this a suitable lens? How much does is cost roughly, so i can gauge how much to pay. thanks greatly....

hmmm... a telezoom....y not juz call up cathay tomorrow and ask them for a quote ...then u can estimate how much is a second hand one if u want.....
anyway the lens is good.....but i will recommend a 2.8 lens..perhaps 3rd party...for the faster shutter speed...especiall if u are taking film....coz unlike DSLR where u can set the iso to 1000 plus then correct the grain etc....

Try Tokina, Sigma or Tamron lenses for Nikon mount. These are usually cheaper than Nikkors.
