I'm interested in buying a second lens to go with my Nikon 65 with a 28-80 D lens. I'm looking for the lightest weight possible; small size counts and price is a factor. I know the 80-200 D lens weighs about 11 oz. and that would be great. But am I giving up much by not going to the 80-300 G lens? I tried the 80-300 ED lens and it was very large and quite heavy. (I'm not sure of the exact weight.) The 80-300 ED costs a fortune here in Canada.

Using the 70-300 I was not easily able to see much difference between a 200 setting and a 300 setting, but that's likely my inexperience.

I'd appreciate thoughts on this. I know the 80-200 D is discontinued but some stores are still advertising them.
