Think I should be considered as a newbie, since I'm still confused over some simple stuff, even though I've been using a really old and not really good Olympus DSLR for a few years now.
I'm planning to get a Nikon D7000 soon...was wondering which telephoto zoom lens should i get for my plane-spotting purposes? (searched around for some threads related to this, but can't really find what i want) (budget for kit 2 + lens should not cost more 3.5k?- I'm still a student, can't afford something that is too expensive) I'm also into travel photography (that's why I wanted the kit II), but don't think that's important.
1) 55-300 f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX
2) 70-300 f/4.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR
or should i get the
3) Tamron 70-300 f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD (nikon mount), which people commented that it may even be better than the Nikkor lenses? (And is this sold in Singapore? I've asked around a few shops a while ago, they told me no)
Which lens would be the most affordable and specific to my needs (fast focus, VR, and other stuff) and yet produce decent images at the ~250-300m mark?
Cheers, been troubled over this issue for quite a while, and wasn't too sure how should I ask about this on this forum, as I'm still quite confused with some terms)
