Been giving this lens a very hard look. sound like what I want and the store I found it in takes trade-in's so I may be getting rid of some old stuff to buy this lens. Shooting DX on Da D50, does a 70-210 "turn into" an 80-300? I could research myself, but I like talking to my fellow Planeteers.

I have this lens. I have used it on the D200 and D4. Very good lens. As to you question, I don't remember using it for wildlife. I used it more for butterflies shots and a light tele zoom on hikes.

Thanks, Dennis.

More like a 105-315mm.  If you can use a 300mm on FX for wildlife, you can use the 70-210 on DX for it as well.  Depends on your shooting.  I got a really nice headshot of a doe with a 75-300 in November of 1995, and when I showed it to a wildlife guy, he asked my what focal length I was using.  When I told him it was a 300mm, he asked me if I needed my head examined - apparently getting close enough to a doe to get a decent headshot with a 300mm lens is WAY too close - especially during the rut.

 

This guy found out about this the hard way.  He wasn't hurt, but it took quite a while before the buck finally lost interest and drifted away.

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
