I recently bought the Nikon D5300 and currently have the 18-55mm kit lens. I am worried that with this lens I won't be able to take a variety of good photographs--not only landscapes. So I have been thinking of buying a second-hand Nikon AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 ED D.
With the 70-300mm, I guess I could take pictures of the moon or any other close up objects. However, before I buy, I would like more information about this lens.
What are some reasons a person might choose this lens (or not)? Are there other lenses that could fill this role for me? What should I consider before buying this lens?
