    Like others suggested, I would go with the Sigma 70-300mm Super Macro II APO DG. I have it (the APO non-DG verison) with my D50, here are some pictures I took at the zoo.. All the pictures in this directory are with the 70-300mm Sigma Super Macro II APO non-DG verison, only a couple scenery shots are taken with a 28-70mm Sigma.

    It's a great lens for outdoor shots, but as others suggested if you want a fast in-door lens for sports photography, this isn't the lens you'd want to use. You can see it produces great pictures inside dark rooms like some of the animal shots, but I was using my tripod with slow shutter speed.

    Sigma Lens

    You guys have convinced me again! I will go with your suggestion of the Sigma lens. Just a (hopefully last on this thread) remaining question:

    Is the Sigma 70-300 APO DG lens the same or different than the Sigma 70-300mm Super Macro II APO DG, (the APO non-DG verison) which are both mentioned on this List?

    I wanna be sure to get the correct one.

    Best,

    Sandy

    Lenses 70-300mm

    [Nikon 70-300ED is also a good lens

    Most of the suggestions I received touted the Sigma over even the Nikon 70-300 ED lens at $350.00, so that is why I am going Sigma. Do you have an opinion comparing these lenses?

    These photos are terrific. Did you use the Sigma or the Nikon?

    Sigma 70-300 APO DG Lens

    I just ordered this Sigma APO lens from Sigma 4 Less, and they told me that the two different lens names discussed above are the same lens. The gal was certain, and the web ad had the Super II name ommitted.

    Hope I and she got it right.

    Thanks,

    The older APO Super II is no longer available. If you paid $184.95 then you ordered the right lens.

    Nikon Flash Accessory for D50

    Was wondering what good Nikon flash choices are there for the hot shoe of my D50?

    I have an older Nikon Speedlight SB 16 in great shape and wondered if that would be suitable, although a camera salesman said no. What would I lose from using the SB 16 and what would a newer flash gain me with the D50?

    Thanks again,

    Sandy
