tamron_70-300vcTamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD

Pros: Stabilizer and autofocus, lightness, general sharpness, 300mm, price

Cons: No focal excursion lock, no focus limiter, no constant f4

Opinion: Honest and very good alternative to the various 70-200 f2.8 or f4 Nikon or Tamron, and offers 300mm. Valid for general use from macro / close up, landscape, portrait and nature photography; it immediately shows its limits because at 300mm you remain short for most of the naturalistic / sport, but for simple action and motor sports or landscape details it does its job very well. Uncomfortable because it has no focal excursion blockage and therefore expands completely when hung around the neck. Its strong point is not so much the AF - which works well - as the very effective VR and allows great flexibility in freehand use at 200/300mm. It solves on average very well, even if at 300mm it appears slightly softer, but this is also common to some 400/500mm lenses. It competes with Nikon 70-200 f4 even if the latter has some extra gear; the only alternatives to 300mm are only fixed lenses such as Nikon 300mm f2.8, Nikon 300mm f4 af-d or af-s, Nikon 300mm f4 pf with their pros and cons, but certainly duplicable without large losses while the 70-300 does not.

samyang_14Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC Aspherical

Pros: sharpness (engraved) and color rendering (good contrast), f2.8 brightness, flare resistance, low distortion, quality / price ratio.

Cons: no filter holder, only manual focus (Nikon version features gold piping connection pin), size and front lens front cap (too big).

Opinion: In use on APS-C Nikon (21mm equivalent of FF); version with gold band has pins that allow for the reference focus (dot green light in the viewfinder) and automatic exposure. A 14mm f11 has already iperfocale to 88cm (depth of field extends from 44cm to infinity) while on FF is 55cm. No problems detected on the scale of focus. For views can sometimes be too dispersive (the use of APS-C) and gives the best picture of the urban landscape. The distortion is contained; to correct recommend the excellent PTLens.
