I am throwing myself on your mercy for recommendations for an inexpensive AF zoom lens up to 300mm for an N70, particularly in the second hand market. Range around 70/80-300mm. There are situations I am needing more than 210mm in. I would prefer a second hand lens so that I lose less money when trading on it- unless you know of a bargain recent lens. I found it quite hard to sift through different models on the internet going back more than a couple of years. To me, the bargain basement is <=$150. Obviously I don't expect very fast apertures and do expect a solution of least compromises. The long end is the most important. I am not used to such big zoom ratios and hope such zooms really have significant quality rather than being toys for gadget freaks.
