No frills, but great glass

  • Excerpt: I've now used this lens for over 12 months so feel I can now make reasonable comments on its performance. Prior to deciding to purchase this lens I did my research and was initially after a 300mm lens with VR.

This lens delivers

  • Excerpt: I have been using the old DX 70-300 for years, and then when a Full Frame fixed 300mm lens was available, I just had to try it out. I had a suspicion that the FX format would render much clearer results, and sure enough this was the case.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
  • Cons: Heavy

Great lens

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a medium lens to complete the range for bird photography. Reading many technical reviews about the new Nikon AF-S 300 mm f/4E PF ED VR I was very disillusioned, besides for the price, twice than Nikon AF-S 300 mm f/4D IF-ED.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Amazing

Eagle Photographer, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Purchased this lens from B&H a few months ago so I have had time to put this lens through a work out. My first real glass lens and it shows with its fast response. The fact that it is not VR is not a problem for me. I use it on a D7000 and just love it.

Awesome Lens

  • Excerpt: I have the Nikon D810 specifically for use in video production. DSLR is new to me having come from a long line of Sony broadcast cameras. I am in awe of the color and texture, as well as the clarity. The 300mm lens was an addition to my video production package. Well worth the investment.

Advanced at Retired & I love Photography

Bob, B&H Photo
12 October 2015
  • Excerpt: This is my first prime telephoto lens. The difference between this lens and my older zoom lenses is really obvious. I am not well versed in all of the technical aspects of lenses, but I can tell you that the difference in sharpness and clarity is well worth every penny.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

Better than expected

Surfotter, B&H Photo
24 August 2015
  • Excerpt: Research suggested that the 300mm f.4 was very sharp, and that proved to be the case. I also learned that the autofocus was quite slow, but it turned out to be faster than the 80-400 I had been using for telephoto applications.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged
