Summary: Extreme problems with noise when using the Telephoto. The images are barely recognizable on a computer screen. I've been using Nikons since 1968 with my first FTN. After that more Film Cameras and than the D100, 200 and 300 along with numerous lens. This is the first bad one but it is really bad. 28-300mm may be asking to much out of this lens. It's back in the box and unusable. That proved to be a very expensive mistake. Don't follow it.
