Very poor autofocus with D700/D200

  • Excerpt: Really wanted to like this lens. Cannot see how this is a [$] Nikon product. Similar feel to Chinese Nikon consumer lenses. It has great range, but distorts images to be wider than they really are. 18 inch focus is nice, but camera hunts for focus and many shots were out-of-focus.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Cheaply made, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

  • Excerpt: I have just returned my new 28-300mm f3.5-5.6G ED VR for a refund. My experience was so disappointing I asked for a refund rather than a replacement while I reconsider any further investment in Nikon. When the lens arrived I very carefully attempted to attach it to my D700.

Not Very Happy

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to use with my cropped sensor camera to get some extra length out of it. Long story short the lens was actually shorter than my 55-300mm lens (a cropped sensor lens).
  • Cons: Didn't Work As Adverised

No good for use with Nikon D800

  • Excerpt: The D800's high resolution showcases a lot of the flaws with this lens. - Crystal clear images from 28mm – about 50mm – great wide angle performance- Soft focus, noticeable grain, in general - the imagery was NOT sharp about 70mm and up- Distortion noticeable in many situations- High pitch autofocus...

Disappointed in the focus

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens as a travel around "one-size-fits-all" for outside and daylight. The focus is extremely soft everywhere but 28mm. I see some others have reported the same soft focus issue while many have said it's sharp.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

300mm....Not really!

  • Excerpt: My wife bought me this lens for my new D7000 body. The thought was to purchase this lens to replace my 18-105mm(DX) and 70-300mm(full frame) with one lens. We purchased this lens with the Nikkor 10-24mm lens to cover the wide angle and give me a two lens set up.
  • Pros: Durable
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Summary: These 'do it all' lenses are tempting to ensure great range by not having to carry a lot of lenses. This lens however is incredibly soft at wideangle and full zoom. It really defeats the object in having a quality DSLR camera which is designed to make use of many lenses to have only one lens and a...
