By Far The Best Lens I Own!

by Pete D. on 11/23/2007

I have had this lens for about 2 weeks now and I must say I am very impressed with it. I have tried 2 other 70-300 lenses and have had marginal success shooting at 300mm as I do not have a totally steady hand. With this lens I can see how unsteady my hand is but when I focus in on the subject you can see the lens take over and steady the subject and I am getting very sharp and clear pictures at 300mm hand held. If you are not getting sharp and clear photos I Highly Recommend this lens. It is worth every penny you pay for it. I am not very technical I just tell it as it is. Read More

Great lense!

by Tracy Stapleton on 1/4/2009

This is a great lense to have on the side. I origionally started out with a 18-55mm standard lense that came with my D40x, and this is a valuable addition to my set. It allows me to take close up shots of people on stage at my church. Be forewarned, this is not a lense to be taking profile pics of your friends, as you will have to stand roughly 4 feet away from them to get the upper half of thier body. On the otherhand, if you do take those types of pictures with this lense, they will come out crystal clear, as i have been known to take these types. Great for outdoor photography, and studio portraits. Now I am just waiting on my SB-600 as an intermediate level flash gun, as I broke my internal D40x flash. Back to the lens, this is a great one, and if you are upgrading from 18-55mm to have this lense on the side, you may miss the zoom level of 40-70mm, as the 40-55mm shots tend to not turn out too great... Perfect lense though to have along side of the standard lense that comes with the D90. Read More

Product Overview

  • High-power 4.3x Telephoto Zoom-Nikkor lens (Approximates the picture angle performance of a 105-450mm lens on 35mm SLR)
  • Vibration Reduction (VRII) minimizes the effects of camera shake allowing photographers to shoot handheld at as many as 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images
  • Two Nikon Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements deliver superior optical performance for both digital and 35mm photography. ED glass minimizes chromatic aberrations, contributing to superb contrast and resolution performance
  • Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range
  • Focus as close as 4.9 ft throughout entire zoom range
  • Non-Rotating front element provides for convenient use of circular polarizing filters and the Nikon Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System
  • A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast and quiet autofocusing, along with quick switching between autofocus and manual operation (M/A and M)
  • A nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening, out-of-focus elements appear more natural
