You get what you pay for =) Best bargain is the Nikon 300 2.8 AF-I. Next best bargain is the AF-S II. Best hands down? Of course the most expensive VR.

whats the best 300mm 2.8 for Nikon Sigma or Tamron
I shot with Papa85 (Tony) today, he uses a Sigma 300mm f/2.8 lens and it yields some gorgeous images. The lens is super fast focusing and the lens is built like a tank. For $2,600 new, it is a great substitute for the Nikkor product. I only shoot Nikkor, but there is nothing at all wrong with Tony's Sigma.

None of the Nikkor 300/2.8 lenses have serious flaws. The features varied of course, but the optical formula is identical with all the models I believe. The AF and AF-I versions are probably the best value based on pricing I've seen but any of them would be great performers if in good working order. Also, check out the TC-300/301. It's matched to that lens and works wonderfully with it and the 400/3.5 AI-S.
