Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Nikon-f

"This is a good lens for the price. It is light enough to carry all day, it has macro capabilities and it is relatively fast on focusing. I use this lens for sports, challenged youth. It is also perfect for wildlife and closeups of plant life. I would recommend this lens."
