Photos at 200 to 300mm useless

  • Summary: I bought this lens for bird photography. I am using it on a D90, which of course, if pretty old. Regardless, I could not get a decent image, even with a tripod, at extended focal lengths. The bird feathers had no detail whatsoever and cropping, of course, just made matters worse.

  • Excerpt: I have had this lens for a few years now and really it is the lens that sits in my bag and hope I don't have to use it. As I am low on funds it is the only one I got for zoom but dread using it. The picture quality no matter how hard I try is always soft and not sharp.

  • Summary: After much research I decided on the Nikon 70-300; at first, I loved it. Then I downloaded the images to my computer and the honeymoon was over. I could not live with the left side of the frame always out of focus. And I mean way out of focus.

  • Summary: This is not one of my favorite lenses to say the least, out of all my lenses this is my least favorite, the images I get from this lens are poor unless I'm very close to what I'm photographing, I know this is not a real expensive but at well over $500 when I bought it I expected better, I've almost...

Great lens when it works - Bad quality control?

  • Summary: This lens gave fantastic results --- as long as the ambient temperature was over 65 degrees. Below that the camera reported no lens attached and wouldn't take a picture or worse - took pictures that were completely black.

Terrible Lens

Ben, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I got this lens just 5 months ago and it already has problems. It is poor in low light, high contrast, slow, and generally performs poorly. I would not recommend this lens if you plan on using it more than twice a year.
