Pros: Range, sharpness

Cons: None - I understood what it was and accepted the trade offs!

Opinion: Great travel lens. When I want to travel really light, I can take a FF with this lens and one other (wider), and that's it. It produces good results for most things and for most shooting situations. Obviously, it is not a prime, nor a pro-grade zoom. However, it is really a nice tool to have available for certain situations. Mine is sharp and the VR works very well. I never hesitate to use this lens, and it is actually pretty rugged.

Pros: Unparalleled versatility. High performance, sharpness and excellent image quality for the type of lens. VR system at times of incredible efficiency. Also excellent on DX machine. Fast Autofocus and generally efficient. A must for every photographic output and especially for a trip, paired maybe to a small bright prime when it gets dark. Even the bokeh is not bad for the type of lens.

Cons: Limits, defects and aberrations characteristics of the category (but much can be corrected via software in Post, when not directly from the firmware of the machine). In particular a certain softness species at the angles and the edges with open diaphragms and particularly over the 135 mm. Even the 28 are sometimes a bit soft (but respond well to sharpening in Post). On some occasions, heavy vignetting with circular banding of the sky, impossible to eliminate altogether in Post. High weight, high cost (but you pay quality and versatility and in the end agrees). Better to change definitely lens if you shoot at night freehand.

Opinion: This lens, with me from the 2012, is literally my "workhorse". I always take it in almost every photographic output, independently of the machine (at the moment I have a D800 and a D5600) and, knowing its limits, always has great satisfactions. Even better then since the post-production Software has evolved to the point that really reduce the flaws. It's particularly fun, and has even better performance (it will look weird) on DX machine! Lets get to well 450 mm equivalent, it's even more sharp than not on FX machine, and all in all the 42 mm starting equivalents are acceptable as "wide" if you get used to making 10 steps back... The VR system is sometimes amazing, and I get several perfectly sharp shots at 1/15 and even at 1/10 to 450 mm equivalent!! Everything worked beautifully even with the D3200 I had for a year in 2012/3. Basically I had thrown on one side the 18-55 VR kit (which was half-crap, maybe I had a failed!) and I always wanted to attack the 28-300. I have serious problems right with some heavy vignetting to Tele, which ruin the sky giving circular banding impossible to remove even with the best Raw converter, but only happens on some shots. The lens is contraindicated in the dark freehand. The VR, which works wonders, does not do enough if it is just dark, and it is easy to find with soft photos or with the necessity of Sideral Iso, which then obviously hesitate in too much noise or too many details "planed" When you go to remove.

Pros: Focal hike, still good sharpness for prints also A2 on camera at 36 mpx, at closed diaphragms, is sharp enough for A3 prints even at open diaphragms, has efficient stabilization and AF fast enough.

Cons: Nothing, given the focal hike

Opinion: Optics Handyman par excellence, obviously unpretentious, I bought it to replace the 18-200 since I no longer use the Dx format. It is very sharp diaphragmed a bit, the stabilization works well, the AF is valid, all without excelling in anything but Especially without serious deficiencies. The use for light and non-demanding outputs, not to carry too much weight: does not betray, does its job reliably. The optics was taken new, was slightly disaxed, blurted a little ' on the right, I sent it to ltr for recalibration in the warranty, and came back calibrated very well, very good sharpness, have done a nice job. It deforms geometrically less than the Nikkor 24-70 f 2.8, and at closed diaphragms, towards F 6.3-F 8, in practice it has the same sharpness.

Pros: Lens all make in the absolute sense.

Cons: It's not the maximum brightness.

Opinion: I have been using this lens for several years, more than once I've been on the verge of selling it to raise a bit of money to buy brighter and better-performing optics, but then at the last moment I was always stuck, after all this optic allowed me to Shooting continuously while others next to me were obliged to change lenses or camera body. Of course I prefer my 24-70 f/2.8 But there are cases in which I have not had the time material to hack and change the lens to mount the 70/200 F/2.8 and just in those moments the good old 28/300 has continued to do very well his work.

Pros: Weight, portability, compactness, sharpness

Cons: It is an all-rounder lens not a bright

Opinion: I state that I am a simple amateur photographer but I must say that for my experience this optics gave me great satisfaction and returned beautiful photos. I took it second-hand safe used on ebay. Precise Af even in low-light situations, sharp enough at all focal lengths. Perhaps the shorter focal suffers from perspective distortion that corrects itself in post. Great if you have to take a trip and not bring so many optics behind to change. At 28mm you can do it quietly Street and also some portrait set. It resisted rain wind of the desert etc. I recommend it.
