    Good lens but slow to focus and slow aperture. You might instead consider the AFS 70-200mm VR.

    Re: Nikon lens purchase for D-70

    I currently own a 28-200 Quantaray lens and was looking to upgrade. (Heading to Deanli in Setember.) I was looking to get more zoom power and this seemed like a good compromise for multiple uses. The 400 mm lens would be nice for long distance.

    Any additional thoughts?
