Excerpt: Use this lens for back yard birding and some sports. Took it to a NFL training camp and for my distance from the field, got some great shots. Compared to my old non-vr version it is somewhat larger but the vr is worth it.
Excerpt: This lens & a Nikon 18-200vr & a Kenko Pro300 1.4X TC & a good DX Nikon body are a light-weight, compact system capable of quality results when you don't want to haul the pro glass around. I've gotten some of my better shots shooting without tripods and heavy lenses, cameras.
Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: Great Product, it is a nice step up from my Nikkor 200mm. It is very durable and doesn't feel cheaply built. The price is the best part about this lens! Only flaw i find in the lens is the auto focus isn't always accurate, but its really not a huge issue.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
