  • Summary: The one with the VR that really makes a difference. I had the Sigma 300 2.8 but traded up when the VR Nikkor came out, this is what it was designed for. This is a great telphoto lens which deserves it's reputation. Its very fast to focus and surprisingly compact. It is not light but handles well enough to hand hold if absolutely necessary which is where the VR comes into it's own. Its very well made and takes pin sharp images at all apertures and works well wide open.
  • Pros: Image quality, build quality speed, VR, size.
  • Cons: Lack of a conventional lens cap, price

Brilliant Lens

  • Summary: I am a very enthusiastic amateur wildlife photographer and consider myself very fortunate to be able to own this lens, which quite simply is an astonishing bit of kit. It is robust, showerproof, quick, sharp at all stops, provides perfect bokeh and works with little or no degradation with all the new Nikon converters 1x4 420mm, 1x7 510mm & 2x Mk3 600mm.

Flawless

  • Summary: I must start by declaring that I own the updated version of this lens - the 300mm f/2.8 ED VRII. However, the two are largely believed to be identical in performance with the only the VR mode being updated, and as you won't be shooting handheld with this one (unless you're a beast) you won't notice the difference. I'm an amateur wildlife photographer and I use this lens in combination with a D800 and occasionally the TC-14E II teleconverter.
