Pros: An excellent yield even at full aperture and also with the use of multipliers.

Cons: It becomes heavy in long shifts if held in hand or on the shoulder but it is a 300 f 2.8 and it is not that you have to expect better... At the bottom is a perspective designed for professionalism... That is, to work on it and try to bring home "the best"... And not to take a walk so much as to make yourself think... Most important...

Opinion: I have this perspective since the beginning of its production... Which occurred between 1992 and 1996: About 6250 specimens. At the time... Before the advent of the digital system... I used it on the Nikon F 4 and then on the F 5 and F 6. It was bought to replace the AF 300 F 2.8 D IF and that although it is a little ' antiqued optics... It is still very valid... Especially for those who can not or do not want to spend too much and even resort to material from other manufacturers... That will be valid as well but... Buy a professional Nikon and equip it then with optics from other brands... To me it sounds like buying a Ferrari... And then make a gas supply to LPG or methane. This AF-I versus the predecessor AF gains a tad in speed and accuracy, in autofocus mode, and is also more detailed when used at larger apertures. It also works well with the Nikon TC 1.4 and TC 1.7 While I don't add anything to the TC 20 model as I never own it. At the beginning of the years 2000 I bought an AF-S 300 f 2.8 II but did not give up this AF-I and although in time it remained a little more often at home in favor of the newer model that is almost half a pound less... It's not being yielded... Also in remembrance of many adventures that we have lived together.: It is one of my goals that, among other things, took the last photographs to the great Ayrton Senna. Compared to newer AF-S models It's a little less balanced... But since now... With the advancing years I get tired more quickly... I use it with the monopod when I can... Nulling its added weight to that of the camera. It has a good construction... "Old" type. One problem... and also serious... That can happen and that therefore is not to be underestimated and or neglect in case you wanted to buy one used: This lens AF-I 300... and his brothers AF-I 400, 500 and 600... They have a different internal motor than the newer AF-S and it has already happened in some cases that this engine has exhaled its last breath. Unfortunately the parent company, Nikon, for many years no longer has these engines as a replacement and so if you stay "on foot"... The optics can only be used with "hand"-focing... As it was many years ago. My, after many years of "tossings", still works very well: I hope you keep it that way... In closing some notes (not critical) to those who wrote this page dedicated to the Nikon AF-I 300 f 2.8 D IF ED. The photography post at the beginning review does not show an AF-I 300 f 2.8 D IF ED but its predecessor... ie the AF 300 f 2.8 D IF and New (ie the 2nd series)... Built from 1986 to 2005 in two different series... of which the first only in the years ' 86-' 87. The focus distance in autofocus mode is selectable via a switch in 3 different modes while the minimum is 2.5 meters. The focus is via internal motor to the optics and not through the camera but, not owning them, I do not know if it also works in autofocus on the Nikon cameras "small" type the series 3000 and 5000 that compared to the older sisters are missing Some functions. Finally the Fitro... Place in the filter drawer near the lens mount on the camera.. It's not 52 mm. Diameter (as will be the ones for all new lenses AF-S series) but of 39 mm. As on its predecessors of the series AI-S and AF with which however does not share the filter drawer itself being the one for the series AF-I of slightly different form... Even if at first glance they look the same... But then much if you want to try... They don't go in there...

Pros: AF speed, excellent performance with even duplicators 2x, contrast, sharpness scream even at TA

Cons: Nothing special, perhaps a bit af noisy, cumbersome nature of AF / MF selector and weight.

Opinion: superb optics, outstanding results. He feels it is already another stuff the first time that you mount on the machine. Built entirely of metal and glass and glass. I do not feel the lack of VR because I believe that on a lens by over 3 kg the use of at least one mono foot is inevitable. The AF speed is amazing, do not expect it. Maybe a real flaw is the AF MF selector a little paranoid and difficult to handle quickly, also to correct manually need to hold down the shutter button, but it suited us. The results then pay off all these efforts if you can definire.rnSegnalo the error in the review, the lens works with internal AF motor although it is not AF-S but I piezo, so can be used on all Nikon bodies also entry level.

Pros: Constructive and optical quality, excellent performance already at room temperature, speed similar to Af AFs

Cons: Weight

Opinion: Optical strongly recommended, uncompromising build quality, heavy but well balanced. Exceptional performance you drink TC14 without batting an eyelid. rnL'unico limit than AFs is the most difficult to use the manual focus (to correct) when using AF. The speed of the 'AF instead it was a pleasant surprise not very different from the AFs.

Pros: Image quality, sharpness,

Cons: Weight, no VR, af noisy

Opinion: I must say that I had some doubts in buying this point, primarily because it is devoid of Vr and then for the fact that it is a perspective a bit dated! Anyway as it is tested over and over again I must say I was surprised by the quality of this light really incredible, af noisy but accurate and fast enough, some difficulty in photographing a fast moving subjects because always the VR, in rare cases even a bit of chromatic aberration. certainly there are now better optics definitely but for the price I bought € 1800 I must say that I could not have asked for meglio.rn
