    I cannot imagine that there would be any discernable difference. Coverage for both is vast and resolution far beyond what you would likely need. At shooting apertures (assuming field use) both likely to be diffraction limited at f32/45. Buy the cheapest.

    Jack,

    Equal performers if you ask me. Maybe the -S is better than a -N but in real-life use that probably diminishes.

    fwiw: besides buying the cheapest, also consider the weight...I was surprised how heavy 1,5Kg is...
