Pros: Sharpness-speed AF-blurred-effective

Cons: price - and weight (but I think physiological for this type of optics)

Opinion: Just say it's outstanding on all fronts........... The price is remarkable but, in the end, this optics give you truly amazing quality !!! What I appreciate mainly are its wonderfully buttery and soft bokeh and, therefore, a sharpness that splits the hair !! Who can do it!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: Sharpness, blur and color, autofocus speed, excellent stability, build quality.

Cons: Obviously the price.

Opinion: This view is the right compromise between focal length and weight. You find yourself in my hands a canvas that exploiting the crop factor of the D800 you have suffered a 450 f2: 8 without having to mount the teleconverter. Absolutely fast in focus, I would say embarrassing, this feature stands out compared to the lower AFS f4 brother I had before (which remains the best optical), and could not be otherwise ... With the teleconverter TC 14II speed remains virtually the same as the sharpness remains the same. The advantage of this view than longer ones, like 500 or 600 mm, is that slewing with relative ease freehand although after prolonged use the weight begins to be felt. One thing I noticed is that the VRII this goal, compared with the other optics in my possession, see for example the VRII of 105 f2: 8, has various functions, the most "sincere" I would say, although even that great the "micro 105". With the D800, crop in the car and TC14II, si turns into a 630 mm and timing of 1 / 60-1 / 80 freehand and VR are inserted, with a little forethought, quietly to portata.rnIn practice, it is a wonderful goal.

Pros: Sharpness, color rendering, Yield Lit, behavior with CT, contrast and micro-contrast, Defocused

Cons: Price, Weight, VR

Opinion: My review refers to the first version VR: a beautiful lens comparable to the 200 f2, with an impressive clarity at every aperture and at any distance, in my opinion it is at its best between 7:15 m. Perfect with any TC, with any type of light, contrast and microcontrast top. Weight and price are not a problem for those who decide to buy it because he knows what they are getting (and indeed for this version VRI are excellent used at good prices). The only drawback (of VRI) the same VR, not up to the new. More than reading reviews you must look at the pictures made with it: a picture is worth a 1000 words ...

Pros: sharpness, speed, handling, no distortion,

Cons: no one, except the price.

Opinion: the Nikkor 300mm f/2.8G ED VRII is excellent throughout, I use it on both D3 D300s with amazing results, comes to sports and nature, it is useful in the ability to digest duplicators, personally I do not see a drop even with the 2.0 tc III, this 600mm f5.6 is really usable even at room temperature, the autofocus is not lightning but enough to work in low-light conditions also, of course is not really if we use the rapido.Ovviamente 300 for the nature we must also be able to approach to well to subjects, because often even 600mm not enough, especially if we use sensors full frame. on a aps-c 900 mm we get things better, but we are conditioned by good light. It can in fact replace the various giants F / 4500 and 600 mm, but it manages to be a viable alternative in situations in which has more execution speed framing and shoot, rather than mm .. I give you an example: on a trip to Kenya was a gazelle running fast to the side of the Jeep in gear, the vibration and the speed of the subject made it difficult to frame, but with the convenience of the 300 I was able to +2.0 framing it in a couple of shots with a 600 F4 would have been impossible.

Pros: Extremely sharp from f/2.8 to f/11. The build quality superb. The blur is great. A lightning autofocus.

Cons: The money that you have to pay for it.

Opinion: The lens is very well balanced. I use it with the D300 + battery pack (all greater than 4 kg) and you can pretty much work by hand for quite some time. The next day, however, the arm enlists the help of a support. The autofocus is very fast, with the limiter is stunning. With the 2x TC you get a 600mm f/5.6 Compact and handy that does not require major logistical problems, especially in air travel. Obviously becomes softer, the focus speed is reduced but it is still high. To take a good support is essential to 600mm worth meet in the shots of the shake at best.
