I am going on a safari trip to Kanha in May and I would need a tele lens for it.
I have a Nikon D90 with 18-70 AF-S 3.5-4.5 G Nikkor and 50mm 1.8 prime currently.
I do not have a tripod and do not have the inclination to buy one for quite some time. So I would like to have a VR lens. My budget is around 20-30K.
I think the default thought would be the 70-300 VR lens.. that costs me 26K in Bangalore. With this, at 300mm and 5.6aperture, low light (evening)photography might be a challenge I guess.
What is your opinion on this lens and its price? Is there a better lens? Any other suggestions? (Sigma?) I would like to know your opinion.
Thank you very much in advance.
