Pros: sharpness, maf speed, blurred great

Cons: collar but doesn't make dani tropes, it doesn't vibrate as they say

Opinion: otticha that I would not change at all,great also very homogeneous blurry , sharpness that should not be ashamed even with new generation supertele,great price,stabilizer imagine with optics of pocco weight is not needed either,recommendable for macro , small ucelli such as colibri ect...,the used to costa rica for the colibri where it takes distance close to seen smallness of the subject and behaved by God,excellent even with 1.4x and 1.7x,also works with 2x keeping with discreet sharpness

Pros: Minimum distance of MAF, quality/price ratio, sharpness and much more

Cons: Nothing, or necessary change the attachment ring to the tripod to avoid any vibration that the one supplied unfortunately creates

Opinion: I have been over half a century in the midst of the use of goals and I swear that ever I found a lens so perfect in everything.. The list of qualities of this lens sends those who try it: in short, try to believe. In sharpness beats even the Big Brother 2.8. Say mind-blowing is little and this confirms the lungotempo now that is on the Nikon catalog.

Pros: Excellent lens

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Razor sharp lens and if it weren't for the more stop than the 2.8. I'd say take this whole life! Compared to Big brother, weighs infinitely less and the photos that you bring home are pretty much the same, with the difference that with each other without monopod, you do not go very far. Excellent build quality, excellent yield, excellent resolution, not in my opinion particular shortcomings, is an excellent optics that does almost everything you do with the 2.8 and APSC, maybe it works even better than the other, in term of strange halos around the silhouette.

Pros: Optical output, minimum distance of MAF, price, Lens hood Integrated

Cons: Collar

Opinion: Taken used for a couple of years, real occasion due to the fear of failures of the previous owner's AF that he had heard some whistle, I use it regularly without any problem. My favorite optics for butterflies and close-up flowers, often freehand even if it is VR-free, but the weight contained, using the machine with the BG, allows such use. With the TC1, 4 performs well, even if the AF becomes less responsive and the use of the limiter becomes almost obligated. In general a lens to have in the kit given the excellent price-performance ratio in the used; Council, to those who can, to replace the collar with an ad-hoc third party. Alessandro

Pros: Excellent sharpness and close focus

Cons: Not very plastic on the out of focus, tripod support

Opinion: It's a telephoto lens of very high optical quality, which used on FF (D800) no doubt deserves a nice 9+, mechanically it is well done - like the old Nikkor- but we must admit that the support for the tripod is not as robust as it should be, however, it is a fairly compact optics that can also be used freehand without feeling the need for a stabilizer. It is one of Nikon's first AFS systems, which is sometimes felt with the classic 'whistle'. And it is precisely the autofocus his Achilles heel, mine, which I found on the used market after having changed another that had malfunctions on autofocus (did not focus in AF with the 1.4x), yes the first day of trial is planted after a few hundred shots; repaired by LTR, now it's perfect with a 'razor' focus that does not need any calibration. So ... watch out! The minimum focusing distance is almost 'macro' pehe tries to shoot portraits of 'faces' at full frame with a very high sharpness, I would say brazen, because of the defects of the epidermis that highlights and that would otherwise be invisible. The only drawback, unfortunately, is the bokeh. The backgrounds are generally very soft, but not always ... sometimes the out of focus shows a strange texture that resembles a lattice with a fairly geometric and regular structure (of course, there are no lattices or other behind the subject); the problem, if it can be defined as such, is highlighted when there are leaves behind the subject and it is not very elegant. However: great optics that work very well even with the TC 14 E II and that is used on a very advantageous price-performance ratio.
