Hello all This is my first post here, and I'm admittedly still quite a newb at photography (although I've managed to glean some basics from reading online and books).
I've gotten a D7000 as my first camera, and it came with the 18-105mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens, and I also purchased a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8, and both are performing quite well (for at least my amateur level of photography).
However, I'm thinking that I'm going to need a better, longer-ranged lens for further-range zoom, and I've been reading up on a few lenses..
1. AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED
2. Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC
3. AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED
Anyone could recommend, give suggestions if you've used these lenses before? I know that lenses 1 and 3 are 'superzooms' which are general-purpose but deliver relatively inferior image quality as a sacrifice for convenience, while lens 2 is a dedicated lens and at a lower cost, but with more bulk and inconvenience (for swapping out).
Thanks in advance for advice ^_^
