The Nikon Nikkor 70-300mm Telephoto Zoom Lens approximates the picture angle performance of a 105-450mm model on a 35mm SLR. Two Nikon Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements deliver superior optical performance. Vibration Reduction (VRII) on this Nikkor zoom lens minimizes the effects of camera shake so you can shoot handheld at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible. Internal Focus (IF) on this Nikon Nikkor Zoom Lens features VR Image Stabilization f/4.5-5.6G, AF-S provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens. A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables the Nikon Nikkor 70-300mm Telephoto Zoom Lens to have fast and quiet auto focusing, along with quick switching between auto focus and manual operation.

Perfect zoo lens for crop sensor DSLR

This is my "go to" lens for most animal shots and zoo pictures. The 300mm zoom really lets you get in close on an animal for a perspective that shorter lenses do not allow. The VR works flawlessly and I can shoot handheld to 1/60th sec exposure. I even use this lens for isolation shots where I want a smooth blurred background. Bokeh is silky smooth with a 9 blade round diaphragm. Usually at the zoo I use this lens as primary on a shoulder strap and then carry a 2nd body with f/1.8 35mm in the bag. Love it.

Huge zoom! And great quality

I purchased this 70-300 lens about 1 month ago, ever since i can't stop using it. It really does the job for zoom photography. This lens replaced my 55-200 VR lens because of it vast amount of coverage. I love this lens. It's a great lens for people who are looking for that extra zoom without spending thousands of dollars. Great quality photos at an affordable price.

Nikkor lens AF-s VR Zoon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G IFED

Wonderful lens-I first bought the 70-300mm without VR and returned it. Could not get good quality shots and was poor in low light. This lense is wonderful for nature and action shots plus good for close up images. Very clear and I have no complaints at this time. The cost is more than the original lens without VR-however the quality and ease of use, auto focus is worth it.

GREAT LENS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Been using this lens for about 2 yrs, attached to my Trusty D90, does everything I want it to do and More, excellent for Wildlife and it matches the ruggedness of my D90,neither have ever failed me. I am a Nikon user for more than 40 yrs/ professionally, no matter what SLR/Nikon You pick, you can't go wrong.

Quality Lens

I'm a 68 year old man who was introduced to photography when my wife bought me a Nikon D5000 with a 18-55mm kit lens last Christmas. I did not have any experience with DSLR cameras, so this review will be strictly for folks like me. The Nikon 70-300mm VR II lens is a quality-built lens. It does not look or feel cheap. It has a metal mount and a rubber ring. I found the focus to be fast & accurate throughout the full range of the lens. The Bokeh is very good & pleasing. The images are very sharp with a very slight drop off past 200mm - not enough to knock the lens. Vibration Reduction II is excellent. It has 2 modes - Normal & Active which can be activated by a switch on the side of the lens. The color of the exposures are very good. The lens weighs 26.3 oz - a little on the heavy side. I have used this lens for portraits & nature shots. I was very pleased with my photos. One photo of a dragonfly clearly showed the wing structure. I am happy with my purchase. I would recommend buying it.

Excellant Optics

I bought this lens about 6-weeks ago for my D90. I've used it mostly for nature shots & sports. It focuses very, very quickly. I've had one or two instances where the lens hesitated in focusing, that was when it was last set at the close-up focus & I swung to a distant (infinity) focus point. I've taken quick grab shots of birds flying overhead an had unbelieveable results. And the vibration reduction does a wonderful job. I've taken excellant moon shots at 1/125 sec. hand held with no camara shake. I'm very satisfied with this lens.

Great clarity, autofocus can be slow

The images are excellent and very clear. The lens feels good in my hand and is easy to work with. The only weakness is the autofocus. It tends to zoom in and out and is slower than I'd hoped. I've missed a few shots of birds due to this. I've switched autofocus off on occasion due to this.

My first FX camera

Bought this lens to take photos next year for D3 football at the recommendations of Nikon support. Also love birds and wildlife. Before this FX camera my best camera was a Nikon sure shot. This is my second day using the lens, out the back door nearing sunset. Photos taken at 7K and cropped. not too bad. This camera D750 is the biggest gift I have ever gotten for myself, and it is going to make getting old a blast!

Fast,Sharp & Versatile.

I carry 2 Nikon cameras,both DSLR`s.D7000 w/20mm nikkor & D90 w/AF-S 70-300mm IF-ED zoom.The zoom is a new purchase for me,so after more than 40 years as a Nikon Owner I have to say this is the best zoom lens I have used for my Street Photography.It`s sharp & fast to focus even for these 72 year old hands.This is a lens that is married to my D90.PS:Both my Nikons are fitted with extra Battery Packs & the weight never bothers me.I graduated from Tri-X High School so I Shoot everything at ISO 400 & Work all my Photos in NX2.Thank You Nikon,I`ll See You on the Streets of New York.

Happy with this lens

I used this lens on a trip to Tanzania. I was wondering if it would be long enough to photograph animals as I suspected we would be quite a distance from them while on safari. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this lens combined with my D90 camera performed wonderfully well. Sharp photos and the VR feature was a necessity. I recommend this lens.
