As a wedding photographer I strive to have the best tools that will help me capture people's special day

Neal Mizushima, Amazon
23 July 2015
  • Summary: As a wedding photographer I strive to have the best tools that will help me capture people's special day. But with a full schedule of weddings I also value light weight. For a while I was using my 105mm macro lens as my long lens.

A True Classic - But Not Perfect

Subidiom, Amazon
12 July 2012
  • Summary: This is an very nice and compact telephoto lens, especially on DX bodies like the D300; nice and sharp even wide open and by f/4, performance is approaching world class. This lens produces sharp, high-contrast images on the D300 and bokeh is excellent, with a soft and pleasing out of focus area...

I would buy this product again

LarryR, B&H Photo
16 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I have only had this lens for three weeks. I have used it for sports and travel thus far. It has performed very well. I did a few night softball games and the photos came out sharp. The advertised broad sweet spot in the lens is true to form. It is built like a tank. The focus is fast.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Good Medium-Range Telephoto

Rico, B&H Photo
26 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Good telephoto lens for candid shots and some wildlife. Autofocus is very fast and quiet. Fast f2.8 is great in low light situations. This lens is a little on the heavy side, but it is very sturdy and well-built.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy

Great optics and splendid performer in low light.

  • Summary: I love using this lens in situations where some outreach in low light is required; It is fast and optically one of the best Nikkors I own. Aside from the usual benefits of fast lenses such as bright viewfinder images, its sharpness is just great at the wider apertures.
