Excerpt: This really is a do all lens. I bought it because I know have a permanent knee injury and must use a cane. It is too hard to change lenses very much in this condition. That being said.....now that I have it I now and wonder "why didn't I go this way sooner?" Yes there is some distortion at 28mm extreme edges but that is easily fixed in Capture NX2. I feel the lens is plenty sharp and a little slow on AF but not at all bad.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Like many others, I bought this lens to take on trips. As airlines continue to limit the sizes of bags, I've been able to take less and less equipment. However, my new Nikkor 28-300mm fits the bill nicely. For the price, I think it's a good investment for me.
Excerpt: I'm sure you've read all the reviews on this lens. Here's my real world usage impression. This lens is really fun. It lets you take everything from wide angle architectural shots to zooms of that boat out in the middle of the lake. I've found it very sharp on my D800 both wide open and stopped down. With it wide open, it shows a good shallow depth of field. The vibration reduction means that I find myself easily hand holding 300mm shots at 1/250th of a second.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: I bought this lens just for my travel to Aghanistan. The focal range it covers was the best option for me, because I had to take all the shots from inside an armored vehicle where I had limited space to move, limited angle to see. Also I didn't have the luxury to stop the car for a photo for safety precautions, so changing lenses were not reasonable either. IQ was not my main priority since the images would already be damaged a little by the thick bullet-proof glass.
Excerpt: Purchased this for my D610 and am well pleased so far. The zoom range allows a lot of flexibility and the autofocus is fast. Nikon's VR II here is excellent as it is on other Nikon lenses. If you carry the lens pointed down on your camera, you'll find the lens lock to be a great assist. Overall, it's a great lens for the price, handles well and lives up to the Nikon standard.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I just returned from a spring trip to Northern Michigan and it performed flawlessly in many situation. Great to just carry one lens when walking or hiking. If there is a short coming it could be it's weight.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens for a four day Indian wedding.. it was the best investment I have ever purchased...it's sharp, fast to focus, and does not show any dark vignetting on all corners of the lens when at 28mm. It also locks at 28mm so the lens does not move when holding it up high to get those dancing party pictures ... This lens is also very good for travel..
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
