    Nikon's 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom-Nikkor. I don't have one (yet!)
    but from what I've read, it looks like a terrific lens.

    If budget--not picture quality--is your top priority, go with a Nikon 70-210
    G series lens (there is also a image stabilization version of the G lens,
    but that's closer to $1500 US). This will cost less than $150 US. If picture
    quality is the top priority, especially when shooting sports, go with the
    80-200 f2.8 ED IF, which is what most newspaper photographers use. The
    drawback: it will cost about $900-$1,000.

    An intermediate option is the 70-300 f 4-5.6 ED, which has a ED (extra-low
    dispersion) front element. you don't pick up the quality or light
    transmission of the 80-200/ 2.8, but it's far better than the low end G.
    Nikon lenses have a higher resale value and are far easier to unload when it
    comes time to upgrade, so avoid the off-brands.

    Are you sure you mean 70-210? Do you mean the AF f4-5.6 version?
    That is a "D" lens (and no longer made).

    As a new digital user, I understand that the D70 comes with an 18-70
    lens made for digital photography. Do you see a new higher lenses say
    a 70-200 being made for digital, or does in not make a difference? and
    will they work fine , and are there any differences between a digital
    lens and the standard nikon lenses that have been around forever.

    Thanks, Steve

    Because the sensor in a Nikon digital SLR camera is smaller than a
    standard 35mm frame, the imaging circle of the lens can be smaller. That
    means a lens designed specifically for a Nikon digital SLR can be made
    smaller and lighter than a equivalent lens for a 35mm film camera.

    Since the digital lens will not cover the full frame of a 35mm film
    camera, if you use one on a film camera, although it will fit, it will
    cause vignetting around the edges of the image.

    On the other hand, there is no problem using Nikon lens designed for their
    35mm film SLRs on their digital SLRs. Just keep in mind that because the
    35mm frame is 1.5 times the size of the digital frame, the equivalent
    focal length is 1.5 times longer for digital than for film. In other
    words a 200mm focal length lens used on a Nikon digital camera will
    produce an image that will be equivalent to a 300mm lens on a film camera.
