Hi y'all!
The Nikkor AF 75-240 D I bought 2 years ago with my first SLR (an F60/N60) doesn't satisfy me anymore, especially since I bought a F90X : this zoom's aperture is not high enough for the AF, so sometimes the F90X can't focus for good.
Assuming first that my budget is small (about $550?) and second that if possible I wouldn't like to look like a paparazzo with a bazooka-like lens, which lens could you recommend me to replace my 75-240? I've been told about the 70-300 AF-ED, but is there really a great difference?
A second-hand 80-200 F/2.8 AFD would be too big for me, but if you tell me that it is rather better than the 70-300, OK, maybe I will accept to look like a paparazzo...
THX by advance for your answers
