Digital Camera Lens
What Digital Camera lens would you recommend for taking close up photos of animals at the zoo?

What would be the best lens for taking close ups of lions and tigers at the zoo? I am currently using 70-300mm VR nikon and looking to take better quality shots. For some reason my images are being rejected reason being “too blurry when enlarged full size”

Rule of thumb: if your focal length is more than your speed, use a tripod.

So if you’re zoomed in to 300mm and you’re shooting at 1/125 or 1/250 of a second, use a tripod. A monopod may even help. VR can only do so much.

Alternatively, get closer to the animal. Of course, that may be really dangerous. Use this technique only on things like turtles.
