Summary: I own the 18-300 Nikon lens, which is a great all-purpose carry-around lens, but wanted something sharper at the longer focal length. I recently bought this lens, and I am amazed at its sharpness. I prefer to shoot wildlife and birds, and this lens takes awesome sharp images. The autofocus is quick and accurate, and the bokeh is very nice. I attach it to a monopod that I use to handle the lens/camera combination.
Summary: Outstanding lens for the size ,weight and cost . I removed the tripod mount since I shoot handheld , most of my work is aerials and I cannot complain.If you need a 300mm and don't need the faster 2.8 (low light) you won't go wrong with this selection.
Summary: This is the third version of this lens that I have owned. The two previous were the older and the newer f/2.8 vesions. To own one of these long lenses will be a compromise on your part. While they reach out to capture distant images, they are not without their limitations. It seems that, when you need to reach out there, you generally need more than 300mm.
Summary: I am currently using this lens with a Nikon D800. I read a lot of online reviews before making the purchase. And I'm glad I didn't wait any longer to purchase this lens. I have captured some incredible wildlife shots of deer with this lens!
Summary: Excelente objetiva para fotos de aves na natureza, tanto em super closes quanto em distâncias maiores, com ISO baixo ou alto. Rendimento de cores, resolução, brilho, contraste e rapidez no auto foco são incrivelmente fantásticos! É ótima também para fotos de pequenos animais (como insetos), pois o foco mínimo proporciona grande relação de reprodução. Combinada com o TC 14E II não perde as suas principais qualidades, ampliando ainda mais as possibilidades de uso.
Summary: In the early 90's I considered the prior version of this lens for film. For what-ever reason it was never purchased. I found this fall that my 80-200 2.8 was insufficient for football games on Friday night. Although I considered the 70-210 & 1.4tc-e, I opted for this lens instead. It is very sharp and has the reach I need to isolate subjects on the football field w/o the price of the faster 300 2.8. With the 1.4 mounted I can see no difference optical clarity.
Nikon's best keep secret the 300mm f/4 for the value. ED AF.Get one!

Summary: It is a great and wonderful product. I am very happy with the results so far. Getting used to it. Also bought a 14B 1.4 teleconverter for use with this lens. Am amazed at the sharpness with or without the 1.4. It was a good purchase for me on ebay. I bought this product to use for nature and wildlife photography along with the 1.4. My 70-300mm is just not long enough.
