BANG FOR THE BUCK EXOTIC LENS

P. SU, Amazon
28 June 2012
  • Summary: This lens is one among the Nikon exotic telephoto series, certainly the best bang for the buck on many different levels. They are all tack sharp wide open with awesome bokeh and superb construction to last decades, starting with the 200mm f2, 300mm f2.8, 400mm f2.8, 200-400mm f/4, 500mm f/4 etc.

  • Summary: The Nikon 300mm f2.8 has long been the professional standard, wickedly sharp and versatile. Sports, paparazzi, and portraits are handled with ease. Beautiful bokeh, brillant contrast and color, everything a lens should be and more.
  • Pros: Still the sports and paparazzi king, hand holdable with VR with ease
  • Cons: It's gonna cost you... BIG

Amazing Lens!

Brett C. "Brett C.", Amazon
5 April 2010
  • Summary: The price tag on this lens is steep, but I needed something that would track birds in flight during uncertain lighting conditions hand held, and still provide sharp images. This lens is about the largest Nikon prime that doesn't require the support of a monopod or tripod.

Extremely fast lens

R. Adams "Via Corsa Car Lover's Guidebooks", Amazon
15 February 2010
  • Summary: I am blown away how fast the auto focus is on this lens. I knew this was going to be a great lens before I got it. I knew it's top pick by pros around the world. But the auto focus speed of this lens is just mindblowing.

Outstanding bokeh, strong colors

Julie Neal, Amazon
19 April 2009
  • Summary: My family just spent two weeks with this lens photographing wildlife, hand-holding it all day. It does get heavy after a few hours, but except for a sore shoulder or two we have nothing to complain about. My daughter, 15, held it better than her parents, so we gave her the bird work.

Nikon 300mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Nikkor review by bradhill

bradhill, slrgear.com
25 October 2008
  • Summary: This is a lens that was built from the ground up for capturing action. Despite being large and heavy (due to its large aperture) the VR function on this lens works well enough that the lens begs to be hand-held. Some specifics about this lens: 1.
  • Pros: Blazingly fast autofocus, effective VR performance, great bokeh, great contrast
  • Cons: Large and heavy, only moderate performance with TC's, not quite as sharp as other fast primes from Nikon

  • Excerpt: Erinomaiset ominaisuudet luonto- ja urheilukuvaukseen. Nopea ja hiljainen tarkennus. Uuden mallin kantolaukku on mukava verrattuna vanhaan vanerikapsäkkiin.
  • Pros: - valovoima, - kuvanvakain (VR), - rakenne, - nopea tarkennus (SWM), - ammattilaatua, - kestää vielä hyvin 1,7 x telejatkeenkin

  • Excerpt: Vaihdoin edellisen teleeni AF-S Nikkor 300mm F/4 IF-ED tähän. En ole katunut vaihdosta, kuvanlaatu telejatkeiden kanssa on tällä aivan eri tasoa. Erityisesti uusi TC-20EIII on loistava tämän lasin kanssa, tarkennus kyllä hidastuu mutta kuvanlaatu on priimaa jo F/5.6 alkaen.
  • Pros: -Loistava terävyys täydestä aukosta alkaen, -Ergonomia, -Terävä vielä uudella TC-20EIII -jatkeellakin, -VR; teräviä kuvia käsivaralta 1/10s luokkaa suljinajalla jos kohde ei liiku., -Kestävä rakenne, -Terävämpi kuin AF-S 300mm/4 joka sekin on loistavan terävä.
