Excerpt: I previously owned the non VR version of this lens and let me tell you... the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR NIKKOR lens knocks the socks off of the non VR Nikkor AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 D ED lens. The VR II technology works to perfection.
Excerpt: Wonderful Zoom! Played with it around Christmas with great result. Looking forward to a full fledged outing! Bird Photos from 15 Meters was good, will try to get better. Portraits of people were... well a bit disturbing...
Excerpt: The Nikon 70-300mm zoom lens is definitely one of the better zoom-upgrades you can purchase for the its' price. I captured the subjects from quite a distance, in a low-light stage location, with contrasting spotlight. With a few tweaks at manual mode,I got amazingly vivid pictures!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Sharp Focus, Strong Construction
