  • Summary: Focus if not very good. It hunts and is slow. Also soft at 300 mm with chromatic aberration and ghosting. The latest 70-300 tamron is much better.

  • Summary: Though the lens arrived in full box packing it was missing the Manufacturer's (Nikon) Warranty Card. I'm not sure how genuine this product is without this key document.

  • Excerpt: This lens does a lot but does none of it great. You are getting what you paid for. Save your money and buy several lens that are great at what they do.

  • Excerpt: I had more expectation from this lens. But it's not giving output in that course. Photos are not that much sharp or Zoom is not upto expected level. Function is not smooth.

Sharpness - not great at all

Autofocus Ross "Keep snapping!", Amazon

  • Summary: I think I wrote a 4 star review when I first bought this lens. After owning it for some time, I have to retract two stars because of two main problems. The point, to me anyway, of having a zoom which goes to 300mm, is to be able to use that 300mm with no penalties on the issue of image quality.

Overall i'm disappointed

Chuck, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: I wanted to wait a while before posting a review of this because I wanted to give it a chance as other people have given quite positive reviews (which is why I bought it). I've taken the lens out in various light conditions and in countryside + city environments.
