Pros: Good for full frame, low cost, good overall yield

Cons: none for the price range

Opinion: What about... I read reviews that I don't understand. 1. Also suitable for full frame! 2. Costs (used) 250 euros... 3. There are no other zooms in this price range with VR 4. ridiculous to compare it with optics that cost 5 times more 5. at 300 mm is quite sharp, just close to f/8 6. good bokeh, you just have to know how to use the distances between subject and background 7. I have it and I keep it!...

Pros: It is the only one among the telezooms for DX that can produce a pleasant deadlift

Cons: It's not professional, it's for amateurs.

Opinion: It's a DX lens for APS-C so it can't be professional and doesn't have the characteristics. Let's say that when used with criterion you can have a nice detachment effect between subject and background. Forget the AF's performance because it's cheap. As soon as the sun sets, forget about taking decent photos, the autofocus no longer works well and the optical defects are amplified.

Pros: Versatility, lightness in relation to the type of lens.

Cons: AF slow/which freezes often, unsatisfactory sharpness from 250 to 300mm, medium/low quality of materials.

Opinion: I have been using this 70-300 on Nikon D7100 for several years for motorsport photographs in racetracks. Overall it is not a bad product, however the very slow AF left me quite disappointed, it often hangs (2-3 seconds of stall) during focus and this is clearly a big problem if you shoot with moving subjects. The sharpest range ranges from 70 to 200mm, from 200 to 250 is decent and from 250 to 300 is not good. The materials used in my opinion are of medium/low quality, but still acceptable for the price range proposed at the time. The lens is not very bright, but this is normal given the maximum aperture of the diaphragm. Ultimately, I don't recommend this lens to those who shoot with moving subjects.

Pros: Price of used

Cons: Dark and not versatile

Opinion: Lens that I didn't like and that I bought and resold right away. I found it dark and rather limited. I replaced it with a 28-300 with which I had a lot of fun, very versatile and with the same performance. I write "same" because I have not had the opportunity to compare them accurately, it could also be that the 28-300 is more performing. Definitely i'd go on 28-300 if I couldn't take an f/2.8 and stay on f/4.5-5.6. Ditto by weight and clutter: this does not make sense when the 28-300 has almost the same weight/clutter and a higher versatility. Definitely from its has the limited cost with which you buy it on the secondhand market.

Pros: Versatility, relative lightness, price both in absolute and in relation to the quality

Cons: Not effectively multiplied (too dark, often the AF goes into the ball), not tropicalized

Opinion: A good versatile lens. The sharpness is good at the center aperture Little, it is necessary to arrive between F8 and F11 to have homogeneous sharpness. It makes the best between 100-150mm, good between 85-100 and between 150-200. At 70mm and at 300mm it's a little too soft for my liking. Good contrast and good colors, distortion quite acceptable given the excursion, some chromatic aberration. Discreet the VR, which works well although it is not a lightning to enter fully in operation. Personally the use on the road especially for portraits and landscape. I tried to use it in naturalistic, but it is better and generally needs a longer focal length. For portrait in studio I prefer the 85mm 1.8 D, for landscapes when I go specifically to make photos I prefer the 105mm f2.8 micro (flanked to 20mm f 1.8 g or the 24-70 f 2.8 g ed or 35mm f2d). But when I travel this lens is attached to my D600 as a second body (I don't use it on densest sensors like the d850, because it doesn't solve them as efficiently, on the travel d850 I mount the 24-70 F 2.8). Ultimately an honest lens that is at great prices, comfortable, sharp enough by diaphragming a bit and using it between 85mm and 200mm pulls out the best. Any better? Yes, but for my travel needs it is suitable.
