At £1700 new (from Grays), it's probably quite posh enough... Quite nice that it has the Multi-CAM2000 AF system, and i-TTL flash so that it's compatible with the SB-800 et al.
The Tamron 28-300 is a full-frame lens. Di is just to do with coatings, DiII is the 'cropped sensor' designation. Probably won't do justice to the F6, but I imagine the OP wasn't really considering the F6.
It's tricky to know just where in the line Nikon SLRs started supporting things like AF-S and VR. While most F-mount lenses will physically fit, and can be used, on most Nikon SLRs, there's a point where some functions stop working.
Hope this helsp
