Impressive lens

  • Excerpt: My experience of using combinations of the Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8G with the Nikkor TC14 and especially with the Nikkor TC20 has been unsatisfactory and frustrating. Despite other people's reports, I found images from the above combinations to be too soft to be usable for medium size prints and just out...

AMAZING LENS, TACK SHARP

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for sports and events and the AF seems to be very quick and right on the money. I don't know if it's my imagination or not, but sometimes it seems like it focuses BEHIND the sensor or focal point buy a few inches at like 30 yds. But I'd say 95% of the time it's right on the money.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Horrible focus performance

Joe, B&H Photo
4 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I originally purchased the 80-400 and its focus quality was so bad that I immediately shipped it back to B&H, who made the process very user friendly. I bit the bullet and went with the 300 2.8, dropping $[$]. The day I received it I tested the lens on my tripod with a remote release at infinity.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light

Love it

  • Excerpt: I shoot mostly birds and it works great. I use a Nikon TC11 tele with it and love the image quality. I use a d7100 and d750. The focus is very fast and well worth carrying the extra weight.

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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • 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.

Quality!

Eagle's Nest, B&H Photo
2 December 2014
  • 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.

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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
