Pros: Light, excellent yield (in relation to price) very effective anti-reflective treatment, wide excursion, up to 200mm sharp and defined already at TA, minimum focus 1.5 meters. Low price

Cons: Except the lenses are all plastic, at the maximum focal length loses in sharpness, is not very bright, does not have the physical ring of diaphragms, af not very fast and not motorized, the silver version is unwatchable

Opinion: Optical purchased in 2002 to have a battle canvas to use on an analog f65 turned out to be a good lens especially in relation to the purchase price. Dusted on the d200 (where it becomes a 140-450 mm) and currently in use on the d600 surprised me for the excellent yield up to 200mm, after you have to close a few stops to have good results, the colors are quite neutral, maybe just tending to the cold. The anti-reflection treatment is excellent, flare and ghost practically absent, just a slight loss of contrast in the most extreme situations, very solvable in post, at most just mount its lampshade. It has a pleasant blurry, which combined with the focal length allows you to make close-ups remaining at a proper distance, useful when between you and the subject there are, or there must be several meters. the resolution is great, from 70 to 200 you can use ta or at most close a couple of stops, besides it is better to close at least f8 or f11 to have a good definition. This problem is felt more on full frame, on the apsc is better because because of the crop factor, it takes only the best part of the lens, the center. Light and unwieldy, it allows you to walk, car around the neck without playing the cervical to the sera.la minimum distance of 1.5 m combined with the long focal allows you to take "almost macro" photos to objects not too small ( flowers, butterflies, insects medium.large). Let's come to the downsides. The construction is cheap, all plastic, even the bayonet, so be gable to take shots on the lens. the zoom dial is not bad, but at 300 mm the lens doubles its length and you feel a certain game of the barrel, the maf's dial is instead small, uncomfortable and has a short and completely free ride, difficult to sew into manual if you do not have small fingers . The brightness is what it is, but with recent bodies you can climb with iso with some tranquility. The AF takes advantage of the engine of the machine, so for entry levers that do not have the engine in the machine body, no AF. The speed is not comparable to the current AMs but it is not even that bad, I also used it for sporting events in AFc mode and if it got away with it with dignity, the speed depends on the body machine in these cases. As in all G lenses lacks the physical diaphragm diaphragm, on modern bodies no problem, but on analog you may have limitations, on my f90x, I can use it only in P mode. For the price at which it is today I would like to recommend it to those who have made the switch to full frame and is discovered on the canvas side( and on the financial side). For less than 100 euros you take a good lens, a little plastic but with an optical compartment still very valid, to carry around without too many patemi and weights. If you decide to buy it, the silver version costs on average 20 euros less than the black, but it is really tamarrissima.

Pros: Weight, discrete optical quality, price

Cons: Plastic, absence VR, automatic MAF only on cameras with AF motor

Opinion: The materials and the construction made in economics can easily lead to think that the one between the hands can be nothing but a goal, composed of funds of bottle. Surprisingly though, the overall quality of the lenses is not that bad. Indeed from 70mm up to 200mm the optical yield is good; Over the 200mm decade but it still remains usable. Undoubtedly of qualitatively better alternatives (with VR and built-in AF motor) there are several; But for those who did not have special needs and for those who were satisfied with a telephoto zoom economic, light, with slow (and noisy) but precise, could be a valid choice. At the bottom, this 70-300mm, his work plays it more than decently.

Pros: Light and compact, discreet the smoothness of the zoom ring, optically very good almost equal to the 70-300 AF-S VR, beautifully blurred ... but above all Pro Pro is ... the price !, amazing!

Cons: Plastic bayonet and entry level construction, AF lens but precise, then obviously the absence of the VR that imposes high ISO shots to stay in safety. FX lens that can not be used in non-motorized DXs.

Opinion: Unknown lens, no coincidence is the first review here on Juza. Unknown but still in production, it is now only in the black version at prices to say the least tattered, I took it again to less than 100 euros! And for that figure I was not expecting any kind of optical rendering, comparable to the heavy and expensive AF-S 70-300 VR years ago, so very clear up to 200, then softens, but the 300 with a good PP are usable. Highly recommended for those who like me use the canvas very sporadically and do not want excessive burdens in the backpack. The AF is certainly not suitable for flying birds, but it is not slow. Not having the VR for the shutter speeds you have to stay with the high ISO, but for the recent FX as my D750 is not a problem. Surprising for value for money, prove it.
