Seasoned Pro

  • Excerpt: This stellar lens has stood the test of time and even though the design is 15 years old and it has been up-dated (at twice the price), in terms of sheer image quality it remains as a contender.

Excellent for astrophotography

ECC, B&H Photo
4 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I have the Nikon 18-300mm zoom and have been unhappy with shots of the stars taken at 300 mm. Get color fringing and fuzzy stars, especially in the corners. The 300 mm DX lens is great - round stars throughout the whole frame, and no color fringing.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Heavy

How long will VR functionality last?

K. Yi, Amazon

  • Summary: From my experiences with all Nikon lenses, VR works sporadically at new, until camera is sent to Nikon repair depot for warranty repair. All Nikon lens must have some kind of switching mechanism to permanently disabling VR, that ensures next service repairs "billed to customer.

Great alternative to the 300mm 2.8

Gabe, Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking for a nice tele prime to shoot bald eagles snagging fish. All of the 300 2.8's are out of my price range. This is a great alternative lens for me. I've made some great photos (using D7100/D750) with it. The autofocus is relatively quick and quiet.

Game Changer

30 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I have been a nature photographer for over 10 years (since around age 11), and I have always had the desire to shoot wildlife. Before owning this lens, I settled for budget pieces of glass like the 70-300 f/4-5.6 VR, but I was never satisfied with the results.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Sharp, Strong Construction

  • Summary: performance excellent, Used outside at football games. Great to capture midfield action. Works well in available light. I use on a Nikon d700 and it is great with higher ISO. Looking forward to using for basketball for action at opposite end of court. Fast to focus.

NikonHaole, B&H Photo
11 November 2014
