View Full Version : Should I get a Nikon 80-4000mm VR before 2006?

I just got a Nikon D50 with D70s kit lens. I'm looking to geta 80-400mm zoom telephoto with VR/OS for wildlife/landscape shooting. I can get the lens below for $1,200 after rebate if I buy before 2006. I can also get a Sigma 80-400mm EX OS DG APO anytime I want for $1000. Which should I buy and when? Also, will either work well on a D50?

I wouldn't be too concerned about the rebate. As soon as one finishes it seems that another starts. It seems to me that Nikon (and others) are just using rebates as de facto price reductions.
