Pros: Discontinued, cheap now on Ebay, very good image quality up to 200mm, light and compact

Cons: No VR; AF old, noisy and slow; lens unravels down to maximum length under its own weight - very annoying; manual focus tricky especially towards infinity; not the best built

Opinion: I have had one of these old Nikons for a long time, but almost always use Tamron SP 70-300mm VC now, which is superior in every aspect. I keep this Nikon as a back-up, or spare, should the Tamron need repair or gets broken. However, the Tamron is 50% bigger and a lot heavier. There are times, such as for tripod work, where Tamron's VC and USM AF aren't of any benefit and so this Nikon provides about the same quality, up to about 200mm, though 300mm is fine if you stop down, which you would using a tripod. Wide open at 300mm is OK, not soft but not as sharp as the Tamron SP either. The ED Extra Dispersion element probably helps too. It saves weight if I'm carrying lots of other gear and a tripod and if I drop this Nikon, then it's of little consequence. The lens hood is a bit of a joke and construction is quite poor for Nikon - some say it's actually built under licence! But if you only have 100Euros or so for such a tele-zoom lens and can make the most of its shortcomings, then it stands up against a new budget lens from independent makers. However, AF won't be possible with budget DSLRs as there is no internal AF motor. And close focus isn't that close, so forget macro, though you can add an extension tube to get closer.

Pros: Light and compact. Presence of the ring of diaphragms and therefore usable even on older machines.

Cons: Slight drop in focal maximum wing sharpness.

Opinion: Fantastic optics, very practical for use in the mountains and on excursions, as it occupies little place in the backpack. I find it better than, at the still excellent, Sigma APO 75-300.Recommended to owners of machines with built-in AF engine. A smaller minimum focus would be welcome, but you can't have it all... The nine-bladed diaphragm ensures a pleasant blur.

Pros: Affordable price. Good color rendering at intermediate apertures.

Cons: No image stabilizer

Opinion: Do you know how much I bought it? 90 Euro. At this price I have in hand an original Nikon optic, decent performance and a canvas that can always serve. I have spent a lot to buy the body, but I have the opportunity not to spend just as much to photograph. Used for portraits, it returns a natural incarnation and with a roundish color and not exasperated. So positive, then.

Pros: Lightweight, excellent zoom range, sharp enough even to 300mm, the price in the used

Cons: Construction is not robust

Opinion: I bought a few days ago out of curiosity this perspective too undeservedly snubbed and mistreated and I must say I'm enjoying it a lot also thinking what I paid ...... If you want sharp pictures is a must tripod. Its light weight is an advantage because it does not stress the union of the body that remains very stable. I'm using it on D300 and I must say that I was amazed. It will be my one copy ber managed? This I can not know, but the words "Made in Japan" on the barrel reassures me. For me it deserves an 8.
