  1. Disappointed to hear that one review I read said that between 200 and 300 image Sharpness in not as good.
    Hope to hear more input concerning the maximum sharpness of this Nikon 70-300mm lens.

  2. I have this lens for a long time, it's a good lens, but for the newer higher end cameras like the D750, D7500, D500, D810 etc the NEW nikon af-p nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6e ed vr is better. It's sharper, quieter, faster etc.

  3. I've had a couple of these and frankly, it ain't "super sharp" but it is a great value in that it covers a good range, is light weight, and travels well. Its my "scouting" lens when I might come back to a location for a serious shoot with better glass and more weight. It also has a reputation for rattling due to the VR capability but it's served me well as a "Scout."

  4. Nice review..plz include more sample images at different conditions. I am planning to buy this one..also i am thinking of 35 mm 1.8g as they both fall in same range. I know both are altogether different purpose lens But still i guess you know the confusion which i guess most of us face. 35 mm has good low light images as far as i checked but no zoom so good for portraits and landscape or street photography whereas 70-300mm is different world good for wildlife but i guess in good light(please correct me if im wrong),portraits and even somewhat landscape as with DX camera crop factor adds to it but low light is an issue. What you say ???
