The Nikon 28-300mm lens
30 December 2014
Excerpt: Before purchasing it I read a number of internet reports. After using it for a few months, it's my conclusion that all previous reviews were correct when it comes to sharpness and distortions. The lens is not as sharp as my prime 50mm lens. But one would not expect it to be either. It is also true that there is distortion throughout its entire range. But these can be corrected during post-processing. Recently I had the opportunity to take portrait shots on assignment.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Quiet
Excerpt: My "on the camera" lens I use on my D600 for travel and general shooting. Great: Focal rangeSharpness when focus is on targetBarrel lock Not so great: Weight Auto-focus performance,(not stellar any time and almost worthless in low light)but that may be camera induced also.Only time I take it off is when I'm shooting models, don't need the extra range, and don't want to wrestle it for 2 hrs of constant shooting.Quality of photos: You have to micro analyze to see the...
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
Excerpt: I have the D7100 for about a year now and am really pleased with the camera in every aspect. I had the Sigma 18-250 and was pleased with the quality of pictures. I really wanted to upgrade to the D750 but not able at this time. So I went with NIKKOR lens and knowing the later I went with a full frame lens for future FX camera. I noticed the difference immediately and am very pleased.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
Excerpt: Recently purchased Nikon's new D750 full frame camera and needed full frame zoom. (Previously used 28-200 DX lens on a D300). You can't go wrong with this lens - it is very versatile. One caution - lens hood will cause shadows in wide angle shots, especially using the built in flash. Zoom lock is a nice feature over the DX version of the lens.
Excerpt: I heard mixed reviews about this lens but after buying I was quite pleased with it's performance. Sure is has some distortion but its easily corrected in LR. I like the feel and zoom range. Good for event photographers.
Excerpt: A great all around lens it covers most of the commonly used focal lengths with apertures that meet most situations. Very useful for lightening the load for travel when coupled with a wide angle lens. While not the fastest lens it should meet nearly all general photography requirements. I found the lens to be sharp at all apertures, a little slow in focus but adequate for sports. fine for portraits and landscapes.
Excerpt: I bought this lens just for my travel to Aghanistan. The focal range it covers was the best option for me, because I had to take all the shots from inside an armored vehicle where I had limited space to move, limited angle to see. Also I didn't have the luxury to stop the car for a photo for safety precautions, so changing lenses were not reasonable either. IQ was not my main priority since the images would already be damaged a little by the thick bullet-proof glass.
