  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Purchased as a lens to use and not worry too much about. Unfortunately, the focus on this lens is so soft I won't even give the lens away. It sits as a paperweight to remind me that sometimes you get even less than what you paid for.

  • Excerpt: Had the potential to be a great lens, but first time I bought refurbished and I received a dud. Hunts for focus and doesn't lock. I thought it was my D70 or D7000, but it does the same on a friends D700 as well.

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: I decided to try one of those refurnished lenses in a attempt to save some money. well, you get what you pay for. The lens wiggled once on the camera [Nikon D90] and I found the test pictures taken were not crisp [camera on a tripod]. Needless to say I was very disappointed.

  • Excerpt: Have a D90 and found this lens somewhat loose when mounted on the camera [no issues with any of the other lenses I have] Took several test pictures in various lighting conditions and found them dull and off color [like faded].

Terrible Lens

  • 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.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Blurry Focus Slow, Feels a little cheap, Heavy, Lens Creep, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Nothing great

LENOCE, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: At the very least, I thought this would be a good lens for surfing and beach lifestyle shots. With the crop factor on a D300s it's close to 450mm.Too slow on focus of moving targets.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Slow Focus
