I need some advice on a lens purchase. We are planning a trip to China this coming summer and I need to complete my photo kit for 3 weeks of travel. I currently have a Nikkor 28-105mm f/3.5-4 D and Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 need input on a telephoto zoom. I'm looking at either a new Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6D ED or a used Nikkor 75-300 f/4.5-5.6. The tests at photodo.com show the newer 70-300mm rated at 2.4 vs 3.2 for the 75-300. I have looked at the Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D lens, but am put off a little by the nearly 3 lbs in weight. I also like the fact that I could use my 62mm filters on both the 28-105 and either of these lens I mentioned. I would like to get the lens ASAP so I have time to get used to using it before the trip. Any thoughts or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.


Real Funny Scotty, now beam down my clothes!
