Hi everyone, I can't seem to figure this one out...
There's a LOT of different codes / types of out there. I'm looking at buying something which will go beyond my kit 28-55 VR that came with my D3100, to do the more long-distance bird / wildlife shots.
First up, what would be the drawbacks of a such as this one from our sponsors:
First up, I realise the F4-5.6 is fairly "general" and this really is all I'm after at this stage, for the price it seems like an absolute steal, I just want to make sure I'm not missing any deal-breaking info here.
Is it "DX compatible" (what IS DX?)
Is it AF-S Compatible? do I need to manually focus this on my D3100?
Is there a good reason why I should avoid this (as a beginners )
And HOW can a noob like myself tell if a such as this one:
... will be useable/compatible with the D3100 body that I have? I would hate to order something like this and then go to use it and my SLR say "incompatible " on the screen or something like that!
Would the work with the autofocus on the ? would the apeture controls work?
Sorry if I seem a bit paranoid about this - the guy in the camera shop I visited last told me that "the one big thing with a camera is that you need to buy the right for it, or else....." well, he didn't exactly say what, but I'm guessing it's bad! lol!
Thanks anyone who can shed some on this for me
I'd LOVE to grab one of these if they're not too "cheap'n'nasty"
