NO but i enjoyed my day out chasing wildlife and have 4x6 prints ...

Summary: I deliberated on buying this lens for quite some time and went between this and the 55-300 nikon. In the end i chose this due to the fact it is FX/DX. I expected some softness from the lens because it is a zoom but I still wanted something i could take wildlife pics with and not break my bank.
Summary: Great lens. You have to get familiar with it, focusing at 300mm can be tricky, but it very much delivers as far as sharpness. For the price you're getting a compact, well built lens that should cover you in a lot of situations.
Summary: Very good lens for the price. The VR works fairly well, although you do need a steady hand to work at much below 1/320 at 300mm. Also, the focus is not too reliable at longer distances, even in brighter light.
Summary: I bought this lens used. It was in very good condition and packaged securely, I was very pleased. Would consider buying used again. For the price, I am very happy with the shots I took with this lens.
