Tam­ron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD £300, $450

What’s good: Sim­i­lar high-end fea­tures to the win­ning Nikon lens. What’s bad: The op­ti­cal sta­biliser is less ef­fec­tive when pan­ning. Our ver­dict: A su­perb budget lens that un­der­cuts the Nikon for price.

Nikon AF-S DX 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR £280, $395

What’s good: Good build and im­age qual­ity and a weather-sealed mount. What’s bad: The fo­cus ring ro­tates as the lens (slowly) aut­o­fo­cuses. Our ver­dict: It’s not quite as good as the top Nikon and Tam­ron lenses here.
