Pros: Compact, with well-effective AF and VR

Cons: contrast

Opinion: It is a lens heir to the huge but very valid AF 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6, compared to which it takes two steps forward and one step back. In fact, in Nikon history, the AFS VR would replace the AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 ED D which however marked a sharp drop compared to the previous model 75-300, a gap then partially recovered with this AFS VR 70-300, which is a decisive improvement over the previous AF-D and recovers a little compared to the 'old' 75-300 which however remains the true yardstick. It is a very comfortable, compact, lightweight, well transportable lens, with a well-effective VR and AF, all features on which the previous 75-300 lacked, but unfortunately it was not able to match the color rendering and contrast, not to mention its manufacture in cost reduction that has lightened and streamlined it, but it has also abandoned the previous tank structure of the professional 75-300 for a cheaper 'consumer' body as a small car. It is a worthy amateur lens, which currently also has an attractive price on the used, but which is not able to satisfy the most demanding palates, because, although quite sharp, it lacks microcontrast, which is reflected in a poorer rendering of the weaker color tones, which becomes evident in low light conditions producing flat and dull images. However, it must be said that in good lighting conditions the images are always beautiful and rich in detail. Advisable if you want something valid and not expensive (used), but to be avoided if you are used to maximum yield in all respects or if you use megapixel machines. In that case it is better to go on the recent AFP model which, really, has only merits.

Pros: I will light, sharp, construction, MF, price of used, colors.

Cons: At the maximum focal point it lowers slightly sharply.

Opinion: Bought in conditions equal to the new one at 250 euros... and a good lens, crisp with very nice colors and a VR that works great... and a pleasure to use it also because it is not bulky... I use it both on ff and on apsc for stolen street or in the mountains... I have had it for 3 years and given the results that I have never felt the need to change it for the latest arrival ... you lower the sharpness slightly from 250 to 300 ...just close the diaphragm of 2/3 stop and you get more than good results ... clearly if you are looking for the blurry you have to go on 2.8 heavier and more expensive lenses, considering that it is a project of 15 years ago still does its job excellently even considering the cost! Good Nikon!!

Pros: Sharpness, colors, low weight

Cons: Price for the category, loses when you get to the maximum focal points

Opinion: I bought this used lens because I found the price of the new one a little high. I call that an honest goal. For its band, it is not in pros, it is really appreciated. Excellent sharpness that only dilutes towards the most extreme focal points. The stabilizer works excellently allowing you to recover some stops. It's a little plastic, but it's in this range. I find the colors very pleasant. At the same time compared to the same focal points with the 18-70 kit you could easily see the higher quality in favor of the 70-300. On aps-c it becomes a fun lens with which you can also approach the world of photographic hunting without having too many pretensions. I said get closer... it is clear that other tools are needed to be in that world. Anyway, I appreciated it, sold only for switching to another system!

Pros: Lightness, good yield and sharpness

Cons: A little dark, it must be taken at the right price

Opinion: Bought years ago on offer around 250€ (today on the used market it is also located for less), I used it for a long time and with satisfaction. It is an "entry level" lens and therefore must be evaluated as such, without having waits from a pro-range objective. The lens body is made of plastic, but the assemblies are good and the lens is solid but at the same time light and compact. The optical scheme is discreet and allows you to pull out sharp images at all focal points, also thanks to the stabilizer that works well. No problem with the AF either. To consider that at the maximum opening we are already at f 4.5, so not very bright. If purchased at the right price, it's a good canvas to get you started.

Pros: And a regular lens, you can put it in the Backpack with a full format REFLEX, and you photograph what you want... To be a Nikon the price and in the norm, if it cost 100,00 €uro less it was better...

Cons: The cost 650.00 is too much... Otherwise, nothing... !!!!

Opinion: I took this lens to take away the satisfaction of going + light in the mountains, in walks for about 3 hours and not having + weights to carry... I can photograph everything, in the mountains I feel good, light useful with medium distance subjects. In the backpack of the Lowepro 55AW and adjust with a D300s there is comfortably mounted lampshed, when you need to pull out and shoot on the fly... The power of VR and regular hooks up to the flight right away, whatever its focal point, and the sharpness I find it Excellent at TA even in the woods ....!!! If you want to photograph subjects + small and far and Useful a Supertele and we already go on the heavy the 200-500 VR or the 50-500 SIGMA and the accounts do hurry to make them, + weight, + costs, + volume in the backpack ... So compromise and just what you want to photograph, for my photographic theme I am almost normal, wrapped I want to have together also a Supertele thing that I never have with me ... Greetings to everyone.... (MGNELLO)
