Note From Jim

Tough call here. Some photographers really like to stick with the Nikon glass rather than the third party stuff. The tough part is that if you do that, you're limited to only shooting the wildlife on the planet you're currently on. The focal length just isn't nearly what you'd need to get the famed martian deer. On the other hand, if you wait to save up money for the TMT, it could take 10 or 15 generations of familial indentured servitude.
