Ok so I got this Nikon d60 and it's a really nice camera so far I love it! I now want to get some new lens....The problem is I really know nothing about them! I've done some reading and searching after deciding I can't afford the $600 + on a Nikkor 300mm Af-S I'm thinking about a Tamron Zoom Telephoto AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Macro Auto focus Lens for Nikon AF-D or the Sigma AF Zoom DG HSM With Built in Motor Macro 70-300mm f4.0-5.6 with the Sigma I would also get a 2X Tele Converter.
Can anyone answer the following for me. Will the auto focus with these lens work on the D60?
From what I understand the HSM on the Sigma is comparable to the VR function on the Nikkor is that correct? So would I be better with the Sigma? (I am not very steady when taking a picture!)
Finally which brand is better?
Thanks for any and all help!
