Are Nikon lenses double the cost of canon Camera? Point in case, below.
I am an amateur photographer and my usual requirements are:
- Portraits with nice Bokeh
- Macro (flowers, insects etc.)
- Day outing telephoto
I am now growing out of my Canon S3 IS and about to make my first DSLR purchase and am about to decide between Canon 600D or Nikon D5100.
Apart from the kit lens(18-55), I was looking for a telephoto lens such as the 70-300 from Sigma. Sigma is providing the same lens for both Canon and Nikon, but I have an important query here for the veterans. Below are both the lens I found, one for canon and one for Nikon, but am I correct in assuming that though both are at same price, the one for Nikon would not autofocus, but the similar priced one for Canon would autofocs? Or is there other lens in this price range for Nikon with Af-S which I can consider?
Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 DG Macro (for Nikon Digital SLR) Lens (Macro Lens)
Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 DG Macro (for Canon AF Digital SLR) Lens (Macro Lens)
If so, this would be a deal breaker for me if I can get autofocus lenses for 600d at half the cost of Nikon lenses because 5100 does not have focus motor on board. Please advise.
