Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G IF-ED VR Lens

Onestop Digital are currently selling this lens for £284..compared to £350 at Jessops for example.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G IF-ED VR Lens

Strikes me as being a pretty good price and I am sorely tempted to blow my Christmas bonus on it! Onestop are are usually pretty good aren't they?

Or you could go for the non VR AND a nifty fifty AND have £110 left to spend on your OH.

He can spend his own hard-earned cash!!

I keep reading that the non-VR is just not as good and as I have a bonus to spend I might as well get the best I can afford. And if I get this lens, then I might well consider selling the Pentax and its lenses which should re-coup some of the expenditure as well!

Fair comment (on both!)

There were some very good images posted up taken with the 70-300 recently, but I can't remember where. It was a thread started on the subject of lenses, I think.

I've been looking at this aswell to replace my 55-200... Very tempting.

Regarding OneStop, only used them once for my Tamron 90mm Macro but service was great and delivery was quick. Thumbs up from me.

Arrrghhhh! One-stop were supposed to be back open for business today but due to "unforseen circumstance" they're not opening until 7th January. I WANT MY LENS AND I WANT IT NOW!!

Got he lens for 330 quid, very good for sports work, VR is fine no problems so far, have seen it as much as 400 quid in Argos down to 307 online.

Love the lens

This one is £21 cheaper than I paid on Ebay, but this listing does not include a Nikon warranty, and not sure how quick delivery is from this Seller (think I've used them before + they're a bit slow). Mine's due to arrive Wed
