Hi,
I have a N80 and some decent lenses.. (80-200 2.8, Micro 55, 28-105...)
My question is how do you think/feel the new 70-300 G will perform? I know it is not extremely fast, but for outdoor still shots, some wedding shots (with tripod or monopod), flora... Do you feel it is worth the small price?
It may help me stop using my 80-200 for general purpose / fun shots (and due to cost of the lens and its weight, that might not be a bad thing!)
The low cost gives the impression that it might be low quality, but I am hoing the low cost is ONLY due to the cost cutting measures of no apperature ring - not an issue w/ the N80
Also, I think it is still uses distance info for flash ("D"), am I right?
I am dying to see it/ try it!
