Going to NZ this winter, and wondering if the Nikon 28-300 f/3.5-5.6 would make a good general travel lens. I would be using it on a D7000, and the extra DX zoom factor (450mm equivalent I think) appealed to me. I would also take my 17-55 f/2.8 for the wider angle.
Is the 28-300 a reasonable lens for travelling? Any downsides?
