    Considering buying a zoom lens for my Nikon D3000, got a 55-200 lens but I would like a longer zoom, I know it's down to personal choice but what is the better deal ? Is it better to stay with A Nikon lens or buy a Tamron to fit.

    I've got the Nikon 55-300. It's almost always attached to my D3100 and it's excellent.

    It's a little more expensive than the Tamron or Sigma alternatives but I reckon it's worth the extra.

    Also, if it makes a difference, it's got a metal mount; I'm not sure but I think that the others might be plastic.

    Hope this helps.

    Nikon 70-300 AFS VR G IF ED is a great lens for the money, and worth considering.....

    I agree with the 70-300. While it's technically FX, on a DX, it behaves as a 105-450. It's decently sharp and it's comfortable on just about every body, including as small as a D40. Your D3000 won't have any issues. Take a loot at my portfolio for some examples, if you'd like. Some of it was shot with my D40 with the 70-300.

    I use a Nikkor 70-300/f4.5-5.6G AF-S VR on my D700. A cracking lens and not very heavy.

    I have the 70-300 VR and love it. Great lens and very comfortable to spend a day shooting with.
