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. The ease of manual focusing is really needed, but the focusing ring is cheap plastic that is easily compresses when used (very cheap feel).
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Cheaply made, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

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). I was very disappointed that the lens did not perform as indicated in the manual where it says the 28-300mm would have an effective length of approxately 450mm. I immediately asked for a return label.
  • 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 sound is audible in all video recordings, however, using the manual focus for video felt easy and natural- 300mm focal length label is a lie, virtually no difference between...
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

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. I guess i'll stick with my heavier bag full of pro-kit lenses or maybe I'll try another example to confirm. So much for the travel light idea.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

300mm....Not really!

FlowersPhotography, B&H Photo

  • 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. The 10-24mm is amazing, but I had to return the 28-300mm for two reasons. 1st reason: This lens does not reach 300mm as claimed. I shoot a lot of birds and wildlife....so every bit of extra reach counts to me.
  • 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 bad one at that.

  • Excerpt: Купил для Д3. На длинном конце не смог сфокусироваться на взлетающем самолете - пришлось опуститься до 200мм, тут фокус зацепился и потом уже приближать до 300. При уменьшении дыры даже до 4 - аппарат пишет ошибку. Снимок получается, но серии не видать как ушей. Серия возможна только на максимально открытой дыре. Отнес в магазин - еще два повели себя так же. С другими объективами проблем нет. Прошивка в аппарате свежая.
  • Pros: Цена
  • Cons: Мажет автофокус на длинном конце

Nicht zu gebrauchen

sigio "Andreas", Amazon

  • Summary: An der D800 ist das Objektiv nicht zu gebrauchen. Wer sich eine D800 kauft wird sich doch nicht mit solch schlechten Ergebnissen zufrieden geben. Ich verstehe die positiven Rezensionen nicht. Der gesamte Bildeinduck erinnert an ein iPhone Foto oder schlechter.

  • Excerpt: Вынужден дать отрицательный отзыв из-за дефекта объектива. Реально на длинном конце он имеет фокусное 200, а не 300!! Проверил это в нескольких магазинах при тесте. Всего прогнал 10 объективов. Никак не мог поверить в такое. Похоже на заводской брак. Просто стоят не те линзы.Никакой информации на оффсайте нет.Для такой уважаемой фирмы это позор!!!Для всех, кто хочет приобрести данную модель внимательно тестируйте при покупке.
  • Pros: Большой диапазон фокусных.
  • Cons: На коротком конце на 28-35 возникает виньетирование.
