Hi guys, would like some advice on a new lens. So i have had my D3500 for 6 months now and always used the 18-55 kit lens that came with camera. I am now ready to get a new lens, i want something to get closer to wildlife and general family photos. I like the sound of the 70-300 but want to make sure i get the right one, there are two lenses i am looking at on Very ( my catalogue is the only way i can afford one at this time). Heres the first https://www.very.co....tt=nikon lenses also there is this one https://www.very.co....tt=nikon lenses can somebody confirm both will work on my D300 body and which would be best for my requirements. Thanx in advance :)

The second has an indication for you: the letters DX.

These are what you should look for on any future lens.

So i am thinking one of these 2 Buy Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR Lens | Camera lenses | Argos or https://www.very.co..../1600309971.prd which would you say would be best .

I would suspect the 18~300, it has greater focal range for the same light.
Both are entry level lenses and should do fine on your entry level body.

Don't forget to show your takes… have a good time!

The current 18-300 is one of the better superzooms, but the complex optics needed to cover wide angle up into the tele range makes for lower contrast and a less sharp rendering than the AF-P 70-300. Your 18-55 together with the 70-300 will give better results than the 18-300. Only you can decide whether convenience trumps optical quality.
