I wen to see the price of your lens and about your lens,
its price it is (on a camera store here) 1460$ cdn,
but your lens it is not AF-S and the Nikon D5100 that I have
need AF-S lenses, there is the same as your lens but AF-S
Nikon AF-S 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR his price is 2800$ cdn !!
In my plans in the coming weeks I want to buy a new lens,
for wildlife nature photography i should buy the
Nikon AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED but I decide
instead I will buy the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8 G,
both have the same price 500$ cdn.
I am dreaming about that 85mm F1.8 lens, the last weeks
I have read a lot and a lot of reviews and in the forums
about that lens AF-S 85mm f/1.8 G and it is in my plans
to buy in the coming weeks if not in the coming months.
Actually fully zoomed I am 50mm or 75mm in 35mm eq,
with that 85mm I will be at 127.5mm in 35mm eq,
for the kind of photography I do it will be enough for me,
with that lens I want also do portrait photos of humans and of
a coming pointing dog (Griffon Korthals) puppy that I am waiting.
Have a good night.
