Pros: Image quality, works very well with TC's, fast AF, can be used in all sorts of photography

Cons: none

Opinion: Have been working with this lens for some time. It is one of the best I ever used, period. I do not mind the weight and use the lens (often with TC 1.4 or TC 2.0) handheld most of the times. I rarely use VR so I can not comment on that too much. For me it works well enough in situations I need VR. This Nikkor 300mm and my Sigma 500mm prime are always in my backpack with either the Nikon D4 or Nikon D500. The lens performs great on both camera's but needed a bit of calibration when TC's are attached. Overall, I'm very content with this lens. Besides the IQ I like the fact that I can use the lens as either a 300mm, a 420mm (with TC 1.4) or as a 600mm (with TC 2.0 III). I do almost not see any degradation in quality when using a TC (when properly fine-tuned/calibrated).

Pros: Lightning fast and precise AF also with the Z system, excellent quality although perhaps improveable, maximum opening perfectly exploitable, useful stabilizer but that suffers from age, well balanced, holds the multipliers excellently. impeccable construction.

Cons: Weight

Opinion: Taken to replace the 200-500 f/5.6E VR. Superior sharpness, embarrassingly faster and more precise AF, especially on the Z (Z6II) system, two more stops are really convenient at 300mm. With 2X it is less brilliant than 200-500mm at 500mm, but it is still perfectly acceptable. The zoom wins for the stabilizer, but for everything else the 300 is better. I find it even more versatile, from portrait to sports, passing through a bit of naturalistic and astrophotography. The weight is felt at the end of the day but the shots offer an enviable clarity. Good with multipliers, especially with 1.4X, but also with the TC-20E III performance is valid. Old generation stabilizer, but still effective, although not comparable with new ones. I would have expected a better behavior than the stabilizer in combination with the Z6 II, thinking it would take advantage of stabilization on the mirrorless sensor, but instead there are practically no differences from using it with a reflex. Impeccable construction, really velvety Bokeh and excellent three-dimensionality.

Pros: Well balanced weight nonostane the bulk, of 2900 Grams, extreme speed when used on FF but also on aps, well multiplied with excellent results up to the Tc-1.7x, but does not disfigure even with the 2x, impeccable construction like all professional Nikons, tank.

Cons: It does not seem as sharp as the VRII successor, a little less, but always excellent, small pulse in size and difficult to manage with gloves and moffole in winter, weight perhaps a little too high, given also the canon peer who weighs 500 Gr less.

Opinion: I owned it for 10 years, bought it to make naturalistic on aps (D300, D500), and realized that the focal point was small, I flanked it with a 600 F4. It remains the fastest in my family's way of seeing, it impresses how little it takes to reach the subject with fire, the change of plans on the fire is at lightning, incredible and the speed it reaches on the professional, even multiplied 2x. It remains a lens to have, below, to multiply, if you are in possession of long important (500/600 F4), to do a little bit of everything, talk about naturalistca, in sport it is a must have together with the 400 F2.8 of all versions. A lens that once tried is addictive and that makes you forget the weight and price (especially if Nital). Recommended in any version, it is a lens that represents the excellence of the Nikon lineup over time.

Pros: Bright crisp and rendered colors typical of the historic Nikkor optics, well-built, rugged, beautiful bokeh! !.

Cons: It is heavy, even if you are aware given the professional carat of the optics.

Opinion: Purchased a gorgeous used to make indoor sports photos, perfect focal length for my needs, does not disappoint expectations, well balanced on D3s is superb, sufficiently sharp even at full aperture, AF fast and accurate, as far as The stabilization of the images, shooting with times of 1/320 or less light permitting, with sturdy and duty lacquered the VR remains always off. Also the same stabilizer limits in the burst. Freehand instead I made shots posed with the VR, succeeding to have surprisingly long times without problems, even 1/50....

Pros: All those already described by colleagues.

Cons: VR improvable

Opinion: In the special section I described my experience with AFS previous version VR. Here I write some of the VR version notes, which I then had. In AFS page I do not spread on the VR resolution at full aperture to slightly above the center of the old version, compared with an equivalent contrast. I then wrote that this VR version weighs slightly less than the non-VR, but it is much better pivoting freehand both for the different conformation of the bracket to stand, for both the distribution of unbalanced weights less towards the end. As for the general merits, I can only adhere to the ratings colleagues remarkable sharpness, bokeh intriguing, superb construction and weather sealing. The presence of the treatment to nanocrystals (a layer of silver crystals often a millionth of a millimeter) the warn in a slightly greater tonal contrast in backlit situations also not total, but still "difficult". About the effectiveness of the VR first manner, I situate my personal safety limit around 1/100 of a second, with peaks of1/50. Sure others will do better, but Nikon says that the VR II version has improved in this respect (and now adheres to CIPA measurements, for that finding, for the VR II, 3 gain stop).
