So.....I need a better zoom lense. I have the kit for the D70 which doesn't provide much range and since I am going on a cruise to Alaska this summer I want to get something that will provide me with enough room to work. I have not seen many people owning this lense more like the 70-300mm lenses. Is this still a good lense? Tamron makes it. Would I be okay getting this? Has anybody had any experience with it? Comments? Also I think this would fit both my D70 and N75 right? With my D70 it would get a little longer range (even if that meant giving up wide angle more) Since it has the 1.5 zoom on the DSLR right? So is this a good option or not? If there is a better lense that would serve me better (in the long run) tell me so and I will check it out (even if it is more money) I can just forget about my wanting the 105mm micro for awhile if that is the case. Okay...thanks! I hope I didn't confuse anybody with my rambling! I just like to explain things thoroughly.
