Good for travel, not for work

  • Excerpt: This lens is good enough to travel, but the image quality is not so consistent at all ranges. Good for travel and uncompromising photography, not to work. I used to use Sony OSS for years, so I think the Nikon VR could be really improved.

High quality, but very heavy for a lens.

  • Summary: I love the clarity of this lens. But it is very heavy to lug around, even in a bag. If I had it to do over, I'd get two smaller, lighter lenses. Shots are crystal clear and the focus is superb. Much better than my very old Nikkors.

  • Excerpt: Moving from a Nikon D70s, DX format camera, to a Nikon D750 FX body, I needed a FX lens. I had a 18-70 (27-105 in FX terms) and a 70-300 (FX compatible), so I wanted to cover that range. With the D750 low light sensitivity, and this lens' VR feature, you can capture almost anything you would want.

  • Excerpt: This lens seems good and sharp at all focal lengths for objects up pretty close, but distant objects will be rendered very soft. This is not a lens to be used for birding or sporting events that may be more than 75' away.

Fine All in One But Doesn't Replace Better Faster Zooms

DM, B&H Photo
2 November 2015
  • 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...

Not worth the money.

  • Summary: I finally sold this lens because it just didn't do anything well enough to suit me. Adequate results as long as you don't look too closely but the attempt to make a "do-all" lens has resulted in doing all in a mediocre fashion.

Could be better for the price!

  • Excerpt: Great lens for well lit compositions! Nice focus range with nice output. However, when it comes to low light, you'll definitely need a tripod to try compensate the noise with longer exposures.

Good on birds bad on trees

  • Excerpt: Compared with my nikkor 70-200mm/f2.8,it zooms in closer of course when shooting birds. And the quality is pretty good. But when it's used for landscape view with zooming out, the image quality is not good. Trees leaves look too blur. It's worse than my nikkor 10-24mm/f3.5-4.5

Not up to Nikon standard

Harold, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I paired this lens with my D800. I wanted to use it as a walking around lens. I was very disappointed in the image sharpness from the start. My D7000 with the Nikon 18-200 is much better.

  • Excerpt: It is heavy and a bit slow, but it's versatility compensate those problems. You could be photographing a far away bird, and then photograph a group of persons without having to change lenses.
