For $350...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What would you upgrade in my camera setup? It's listed in my sig. I nearly always shoot with my D200, so I'm not really looking to upgrade my 430.

If you sold your 70-210 and 28-80 you could probably be able to pick up a used nikon 18-200 vr, or upgrade your prime

Unless the optical quality is far better than that of my 70-210mm, I'd rather pick up something a bit less expensive.

I was looking at the Tokina 16.5-135, the Nikon 24mm f/2.8, and the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-5.6.

Anyone have any experoence with any of those?

Depends on what you shoot or want to shoot. You're lacking on the wide end, so a fast standard zoom or UWA zoom could be in order.

Here's a link the the refurbed Nikon 70-300mm VR ($380)

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...om_NIKKOR.html

I think you'd like it as an upgrade to your 70-210. Adding the VR would be a good help also. Check around to see some examples of what it can do. I think you'll be happy.
