Nikon 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF

Review Date: Dec 21, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $300.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Sharp, Zoom Range, IF, Provided Hood, ED, Low Price
Pinchusion Distortion (long End) on Full Frame Body

I have used this lens both on my N80 (full Frame) and on my D50. I highly recommend it for DX format cameras. However on full frame, the pincushion distortion at 200MM is circus like.

Sigma 24-70mm f3.5-5.6 Aspherical HF

Review Date: Nov 26, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $125.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Sharpness, low price, fast focusing, non-rotating front element, included flower type lens hood.
Plastic mount, dim in viewfinder

I bought this lens to replace the kit lens on my N80. I was very impressed with how fast this lens focuses. The 24mm wide (true wide on a film slr) is great to have and really helped with a recent 30 person group shot inside a cramped corner of a church.

Sharp at all focal lenghts. I was pleasently surprised after getting back my prints using Kodak 400UC. Excellent contrast and color. No flare problems so far. The included flower shaped lens hood is great and gives a "pro" look.
