Was at in Melbourne looking at getting some more reach for my DSLR and have been comparing the Nikkor 70 - 300 and the Tamron 70 - 300.
had cut the price of the Nikkor to around $800 on their website.
When I was talking to sales rep he mentioned that this lens was marked at "Discontinued"
Has anyone else heard anything like this? I know the lens is around 6 years old
Also which of the two lenses would be the best to get? The rep also suggested moving to the Sigma AF 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM? It's considerably more expensive but would it be worth trying to save up for this lens instead?
