At that price point it is bargin and there isn't any other choice TBH unless you drop back 100mm and then I believe it is a sigma again.
It is a very heavy lens and not very fast in aperture terms so you will need to bump the ISO up to get fast shutter speeds but then Nikons noise handling is very good so that shouldn't be a major issue.
I would have a think though what maximum Zoom you are going to need as another consieration is the 120mm-400mm which is another very nice lens and is one stop faster at max zoom.
