Excerpt: I had an 18-200mm DX lens on my D810 and finally decided to stop wasting pixels and upgrade to this full frame lens. I keep it on my camera all the time and love its broad zoom range and sharpness. Its focusing is fast and accurate.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
Fine All in One But Doesn't Replace Better Faster Zooms

Excerpt: Having shot events for many years using 70-200 f2.8, 2.8 wide angle zoom and bag of fast (and some very inexpensive) prime lenses I hoped to lessen camera bag weight. This lens is pretty good in decently lit situations but in low light level the 5.6 aperture at the longer zoom range was not so...
Excerpt: I shoot a lot of photos of a high school marching band. I need to be able to quickly switch from a long zoom to a wide angle lens for group shots. I purchased this lens to allow me to do both types of shots without the need to constantly change lenses, and in that category it works great.
This is a very nice lens and easy on the battery(ies)

Summary: This is a very nice lens and easy on the battery(ies). It's easy to handle; the controls are convenient. I can simultaneously turn on/off the camera and unlock/lock the lens barrel for zooming. Not so with a very fine Tamron with the the locking switch top right of lens barrel.
Excerpt: I checked this lens out for sharpness and it is sharper in the middle than the corners but moderately good all around. It is not a prim and you cannot expect it to perform as well according to sharpness. It is plenty sharp for regular pictures and is a good, albeit heavy, walk around lens.
Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S Nikkor review by nightbiker
18 May 2015
Summary: Exceptional image quality for such a big zoom, even at 300, at f8 of course. Times better than its little brother 18-200 DX Bokeh not for my taste and only from 200mm and upwards. Very heavy, so it's not a gift for everyday shooting. Vr is good and trustful.
Pros: Image quality for such a big zoom range, perfect travel lens, solid construction, Good VR
Cons: Heavy, mediocre bokeh, zoom creep, distortion, CA, slow lens and slow focus somethimes.
