    To all Nikon DSLR owners out there, please help me :p

    I have a D60.

    I have a choice of 3 lenses that I want to buy but my limited knowledge is failing me, if you had to make a choice of buying one of these 3 lenses to take photo's of your fish, which one would you choose?

    I have a d3200 with the nikon 55-200 lens & i would definitely recomend it for fish & tank photography.
    The sigma is a low budget lens & you wont get the same quality pictures with it. As for the tamron. I have not personally seen them so i cant really give comments on that.

    Look at this review first, then decide

    This guy always gives good advice and I would believe his reviews. I always prefer OEM glass and you can always get your money back. All you have to be careful with is when taking your lens off and on. If you do look after this aspect it is a great lens.
