Amazing lens

  • Summary: Took the lens to Coronado beach in SD last weekend and results were amazing. It was fast and razor sharp clear on every image I took. It is bit heavy but I am really happy with the lens.

Worth every pound (of the 2.9kg) - feedbacks vs the 300mm f/2.8

Shawn Chen "shawnbert", Amazon
23 September 2006
  • Summary: It weights as much as the af-s 300mm f/2.8 (gen 1) but is about 2.5" shorter in length. The primary lens is the same size, and it's a chore to lug around. 10lbs to be exact with a D700 and a battery grip. The personality of the lens, e.g. sharpness, bokeh, is similar to the 105mm DC Nikkor f/2, except it has faster focus, able to shoot a couple of stops faster with VR, and has a 200mm focal length.

Best of the best

Felix Gumby "Quirrell", Amazon
23 September 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this lens in order to take advantage of the 2.0 f-stop in horribly lit hs gymnasiums. This lens paired with my D2Hs is outstanding. It has to be the best volleyball lens in existence. The only drawback is that it weighs a TON (better start doing your push-ups!). But, when you see the shots it produces, the weight is no longer a problem. I used a 70-200VR prior to this purchase, and it is/was a great lens, but it isn't even in the 200's class.

PERHAPS KING OF PORTRAIT LENS?

P. SU, Amazon
23 September 2006
  • Summary: I believe you own this lens for portraits. 200mm is not a nice range for sports or wildlife, often too short, unless it's for tight indoor sports like volleyball badminton, table tennis or squash etc. Its lightning fast AF is certainly good for sports. Way faster than the 70-200mm VR II. Like everyone is saying, it's very heavy and hard to carry.
