Hi I have just joined the forum. I was given my new Nikon D3300 for my birthday in March. I am a real novice and struggling a bit. I need to get a zoom lens and I have done some research but not sure if I am making the right decision. I have found a used 70 - 300mm lens in a camera shop for £299, usually £429 new. I used to get really good close up shots with my Olympus Camedia C760 Ultra zoom - I can stand at the gates of Buckingham Palace and get good shots on the balcony - so that is the sort of zoom lens I am looking for.
Can anyone advise me please?
