As I have just bought a D70 with 18-70 kit lens, Im looking for a lightweight 70-300. This will be for general use, but also has to be suitable for motorsport.

I am considering the following lenses:

Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO Macro Super DG £180

Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO Macro II Super £160

Nikon AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 D ED £270

Is the Nikon worth paying the extra over the Sigmas?

Any comments anyone at all?

Thanks in advance

Joe

I know nothing about the Nikon, but you can get the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO Macro II Super £160 from 7dayshop.com for £139 Nikon fit in case it affects your calculations.
