Not as sharp as expected.

8 March 2014
  • Summary: The photos are not as sharp as I expected with a $1,000 lens - at any focal length with the zoom. I am disappointed in this lens. The construction also makes the zoom ring difficult to turn with a "sandy" noise. My D800e Nikon camera has the notorious focusing problems (that Nikon will not address properly) so the left most focus points are always out of focus. Not sure if it is the lens or the camera causing that specific problem.

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...

Disappointed in the focus

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens as a travel around &quot;one-size-fits-all&quot; for outside and daylight.<br />The focus is extremely soft everywhere but 28mm.<br />I see some others have reported the same soft focus issue while many have said it's sharp.<br />I guess i'll stick with my heavier bag full of pro-kit lenses or maybe I'll try another example to confirm.<br />So much for the travel light idea.
  • 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. <br />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. <br /><br />1st reason: This lens does not reach 300mm as claimed. I shoot a lot of birds and wildlife...

Nicht zu gebrauchen

AndreasP "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.

nicht für anspruchsvolle Fotografen geeignet

Kundin "alpinekritik73", Amazon
29 March 2012
  • Summary: Das Objektiv kaufte ich vor 6 Monaten im KIT mit der Nikon D700 und ich muss leider feststellen: es war ein Fehlkauf... Die Lichtstärke reicht nicht aus, immer wieder komme ich an die Grenzen und auch der Versuch, mit der ISO auf angeblich rauschfreie 6400 hochzugehen, macht's nicht besser. Da ist sogar Sigma besser: Vergleichstests mit anderen Objektiven waren erschütternd, so dass das Objektiv auf Käufer wartet. Größtes Manko: Der Zoom fährt fröhlich von alleine aus.

Unterirdisch schlecht von 28-70mm

Doris Stoeckl "doris976", Amazon
18 October 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe die Linse an einer D300S getestet, also DX Format. Vorab ich hab ein bischen Erfahrung mit Nikon Linsen, bisher hatte ich 18-55, 18-105 und 16-85 und ich habe nach wie vor das 70-300VR2. Nun zum Test. Das Objektiv ist sehr handlich und für diesen Brennweitenbereich sehr kurz in der Baulänge. Es fährt zweifach aus beim Zoomen, wobei intern ab 200mm Linsengruppen wieder zurückgefahren werden was sich in einem deutlichen Widerstand äussert.
