I just received the D5300 this week with the kit 18-55mm lens and I ordered this one as well - Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II lens. I’m considering returning the 55-200mm in exchange for a 70-300mm. I am interested in pictures of wildlife (bird) and kid sports (football and track).
Would one of the following be better than the 55-200mm?
Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens with Built In Motor for Nikon Digital SLR (Model A17NII)
Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6G AF Nikkor SLR Camera Lens
Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6 G AFD Nikkor Zoom Lens
