Pros: Incision and contrast even at full aperture. Construction. bokeh qualities.

Cons: ergonomics and weight distribution

I had this lens for a few days (nevertheless sufficient to run about five shots), having then returned for a autofocus problem, and simultaneously buying the following version VR. I'm leaving this review so as not AFS VR before moving - in special sections - a note on the VR version. Granted - and accepted - the high weight, I have to say that I could still sit hand-free sessions of over a thousand shots without experiencing soreness in the upper limbs (but paying attention to the back: for example, I never left the lens hanging from his neck, worth an unwanted whipping the spine ...). Moving on to the VR version (of which, as I wrote, I will say the page dedicated to it) but I have seen that the new version weighs a little less but it is much better pivoting, both for the different conformation of the bracket to the stand, either because the weights are less unbalanced towards the end. Some say that this version does not VR has a higher incision wide open thanVR versions following. The MTF charts published by the same Nikon give them reason: the spatial frequency of 30 lines per millimeter that no VR is slightly higher than the center of the VR, and then equate the edges. Therefore under these conditions it has a slightly higher resolution, while the contrast (measured at a spatial resolution of 10 lines per millimeter) is almost identical to the VR version. it must be stressed that the use on field we are talking about very high levels (taking into account different scale of MTF values, the interpretation given by monthly TuttiFotografi, the recognition of which is the median, the value is close to the factor 9), in both cases capable of generating pleasure to the eye.

Pros: Illuminated Magnifier, fast AF with TC17 and TC20. In addition to the Full, the AF limiter provides a range from 2.5 m to 8 m. and from 6m. infinito.Ottima to the optical performance and color.

Cons: More than 3 kg of weight you can hear everyone on the left hand. Stand mandatory. Hood of considerable size but difficult insertion. The safety glass is fixed and lacks the thread (the filter is back)

I acquired the paintings used but in good condition to replace the AFS 300/4, I always use it with the TC for the photo hunt herons and waterfowl in generale.Il improving the quality of photos has been remarkable. In the photos of birds in flight freehand shots I noticed a loss of more than 50% due to the heavy weight that slows down the size of the subject, especially in flights from sin. towards the right (I have many photos of queues and stilts), but maybe it's problematic personal fitness (I have 81 springs). I own the lens for about a year and the seller told me recently offered to buy it back or exchange it with Sigma 500/4, 5.
