Performed as Anticipated

  • Excerpt: As expected the lens is the cat's meow. Yes, it is both heavy and expensive but you get what you pay for. I can hand hold for a little while and then looking to switch hands, look for something to prop myself against or rest the lens on. I did a couple mile plus hikes with the Nikon provided lens strap and let's just say, you don't really want to that, no fun. It's best mounted with a sidekick type gimbal head - your percentage of keepers dramatically increases.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Awesome...But Too Much for Me.

  • Excerpt: First of all, let me say that B&H is absolutely THE Best Source for photo equipment.I purchased the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VRII after much experience using the Nikon 300mm 4.0 lens and finding the 300mm 4.0 lens to be perfect in every way...with the exception of not having a VR system. Although I had read all the reviews and the Specs on the Nikon 300mm 2.8, I was not prepared for the size and weight of this lens. It is a beautiful, but massive lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Quality!

Eagle's Nest, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I took my new 300 out after a snow storm in remote northern California and used the lens for the first time, it was everything i hoped for and expected. Super fast focus and amazing clarity. In the late winter afternoon lower light it sucked up the light and gave me beautiful shots at ISO64. Yes, it is much heavier and larger than the f4, but that's what you get with pro glass, and i don't mind it at all.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Nice lens!

  • Excerpt: I tried the 600mm but it was just to big and cumbersome for me. I like to hike and shoot wildlife. Hubby carries it for me and even this one is heavy but not as bad as the 600mm. So I added the 2x teleconverter to reach the 600mm on my full format camera and it reaches about 900 with my DX. The images are crisp and clear. I have been very happy so far.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

The standard by which others should be measured

LanceB, Adorama
14 October 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is the standard by which other lenses should be measured. Superb in every respect, like color rendering, bokeh, sharpness, virtually no CA, VR, AF speed and accuracy. I have a raft of pro spec Nikon lenses, but the 300 f2.8 VRII is the best of the all of them. Adding the 1.4x TCII (or now the 1.4x TCIII) gives you a 420mm f4 with basically no penaly in IQ or AF speed or accuracy. This just makes the 300mm f2.8 VRII that much more versatile.
