Product Highlights
  • FX-Format Zoom
  • VR II Image Stabilization
  • Focus to 18" at Any Focal Length
  • Zoom Lock Switch
  • Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
  • M/A Focus Mode Switch
  • Internal Focus (IF)
  • Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens works on both FX and DX-format D-SLR cameras. The lens features a broad zoom range, and it close-focuses down to 18" at every focal length.

On an FX body, the AF-S 28-300 ED VR covers nearly every aspect of travel, landscape, and portrait photography - including those elusive distant subjects. On a DX-format camera, the apparent focal length gets a 1.5x bump and it turns into a long-range ace-up-the-sleeve. The VR II image stabilization allows you to handhold the your camera at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and stable video capture.

For critical focusing-moments the lens has a M/A focus mode switch that allows the photographer to quickly change between manual and autofocus modes. The autofocusing is remarkably smooth and quiet - thanks to Nikon's silent wave motor system. The aperture diaphragm boasts no fewer than 9 blades that produce a rounded opening - a feature that will be greatly appreciated by bokeh-lovers everywhere!

The lens elements have been treated with Nikon's Super Integrated Coating - an optical lens coating process that maximizes light transmission while enhancing clarity and contrast. All of these world-class features add up to the AF-S 28-300 ED VR being a go-to lens for just about every adventure.

Versatile 10.7x FX-format Zoom Lens w/ ED Glass
Versatile zoom lens offers a broad focal length range that's perfect for travel, landscapes, portraits, and distant subjects.
Optimized for Edge to Edge Sharpness on both FX and DX-format D-SLRs
DX-format D-SLR angle of view is equivalent to a focal length of 42-450mm.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction system is engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens. It enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture setting.
3 Aspherical Lens Elements
Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other aberrations, even when shooting wide open.
M/A Focus Mode Switch
Enables quick changes between manual and autofocus operation.
Internal Focus (IF)
Provides fast and quiet autofocus. It also keeps the front element from spinning, which maintains the position of a polarizer or lens hood.

Enables fast, accurate, and quiet autofocusing.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
Zoom Lock Switch

    Autofocus: autofocus is quite fast. Not as fast as say the 24-70 f/2.8 but it's still reasonably fast and should be good enough for normal use on my D700 (check out some of the action shots i'm going to post below). The lens does generate quite a bit of strange noise during focusing. It's not as noisy as the older AF lenses but i've never hear this kind of noise before on other AFS lenses. When i first got the lens, i actually thought my lens may have some problems but the other 28-300 VR are also reporting the similar experience so i guess this is "normal". The autofocus would hunt around a bit when shooting dynamic scenes under very dim light.Size and weight: with a 77mm filter thread, it's not a small or light weight lens. but then it's not a 70-200 VR neither. It is a bit shorter than the 70-300VR and slightly bigger and heavier than the 18-200VR.Sharpness: Didn't really do any real test but by looking at the real life photos i took it seems quite good even at wide open. Just remember this is a superzoom so you can't compare it with a prime lens or even a f/2.8 zoom lens. Just stop down to f/8 if you want very good sharpness, but to be honest, even when shooting at wide open, the image quality is still not too bad for a 10x zoom lens. Image at 300mm wide open is slightly soft but definitely useable.CA: i notice a bit of CA at wide open, but it's not too serious.VR: It's quiet and quite effective. I tested it by shooting at 50mm handheld. At 1/3s shutter speed , i can still get a reasonable percentage of sharp/ok photos. If i use something to support my body/hand, my shutter speed can probably go even lowerDistortion: So far I think this is probably the weakest area of this lens. Distortion exists throughout the whole focal range. It's quite obvious but if you ask me i think it's acceptable since distortion is really common for the superzooms. The Canon 28-300 has this problem, the Tamron 28-300 also has this problem, even the not so "super" zoom lenses like the Nikon 18-105 has similar problems. So if you like shooting brick walls, this is probably not the best lens for you. But if you like to shoot something else, then this is probably not a serious problem.Vignetting: On my D700, it is noticable at wide open but much better than my 50 1.4G or 70-200 f/2.8 VRMy thoughts:It's not a perfect lens (the distortion throughout the whole focal range, slightly soft at wide open..etc), but I think Nikon did a great job in creating a lens which has a very good balance between the size/weight/price/IQ. When Nikon first announced this lens, a lot of people questioned if any FX user really want this kind of superzoom. But i've a feeling Nikon got it right and it will become very popular lens among the Nikon FX or even some DX DSLR users. You can find some sample photo i took with this lens:[@]

    All-in-one bliss, but with compromises

    Title says it all. If you are looking for one lens to cover just about the full gamut of common focal lengths, this is the lens. Sounds great right? Read on. Read complete review

    Title says it all. If you are looking for one lens to cover just about the full gamut of common focal lengths, this is the lens. Sounds great right? Read on.

    First off, the lens is built like a tank. It is on par with the construction quality of Nikon pro glass, not sure about the seals, but you could defend yourself with this lens if you needed to! As a consequence of the build quality is the added weight. This is a heavy sucker and when you use 200-300mm it gets LONG and throws off the balance of your camera. Not a deal breaker, but also consider you will get funny looks with the obscene appearance of the lens when at 300mm!

    This lens is slow, but in theory this is compensated for by the VR. If low light is your thing, you may want to look somewhere else. Additionally, you will not get those creamy soft out of focus areas like faster primes. Don't forget that the widest aperture is variable too depending on focal length. Image sharpness is pretty good, but not on par with pro level zooms or even a less costly set of primes. Comparing this lens to the fantastic 70-200mm F2.8 VRII is an eye opener. If sports is your thing, save your money and get the latter lens it is that much better. Autofocus while good, may not be fast enough for some sports. I shot soccer at it was good, but not as fast as the 70-200.

    Here is the big downside, distortion. Gobs of it. If you use it creatively you might get results you want, but be mindful how you use the lens especially at the wide end or you may be rather dissappointed.

    Overall, the lens is best for someone who wants only ONE lens and isn't too overly concerned about IQ, distortion etc. This is not a pro level lens nor one I'd use for critical shoots, but to travel with this may be ideal, but again, don't forget how heavy this sucker is!

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens:

    The lenses that I use for photographing food, people, and places on my D610 are the kit lens (24-85mm), 80-200mm f/2.8, and the 28-300mm. Although I use all three lenses, I'm finding that I use the 28-300mm more and more, because of the quality and convenience.

    When I travel abroad, I don't like to carry around heavy equipment. The 28-300mm gives me the focal lengths that I need, saving wear and tear on my back. The image quality, while better than the kit lens, doesn't quite match the 80-200mm, but it's close enough. I'm very pleased with it!

        I recently purchased my Nikon D610 full frame camera. I've been taking pictures with Nikon products since the 1960's and this D610 is replacing my Nikon D80. This lens is great for covering a WIDE number of shooting situations.... The 28-300MM covers it all for me. The f/3.5-5.6 zoom is easy to carry and operate. The "VR" feature is also a plus........

          Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens:

          This really is a do all lens. I bought it because I know have a permanent knee injury and must use a cane. It is too hard to change lenses very much in this condition. That being said.....now that I have it I now and wonder "why didn't I go this way sooner?" Yes there is some distortion at 28mm extreme edges but that is easily fixed in Capture NX2. I feel the lens is plenty sharp and a little slow on AF but not at all bad. I have played with it for the past week doing everything from street to macro, and now I have to go out for a serious shoot.

          My bag now contains the D700 with the 28-300 and my 16mm FE....That is it. I can actually leave the bag at home and put the FE in my pocket and I am gone for the day. Really a great lens.

            Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens:

            I bought this lens just for my travel to Aghanistan. The focal range it covers was the best option for me, because I had to take all the shots from inside an armored vehicle where I had limited space to move, limited angle to see. Also I didn't have the luxury to stop the car for a photo for safety precautions, so changing lenses were not reasonable either. IQ was not my main priority since the images would already be damaged a little by the thick bullet-proof glass. So I left all my pro lenses home in case of theft. It's been two weeks now and I'm mostly happy with the results.Things to consider: 1. Distortion is much, but better to keep it that way. Trying to fix it in Photoshop makes people look worse.2. Huge vignetting for apertures 7 or less, but it makes portraits better in my opinion.3. Covers huge range, especially for a full-frame. But focal lenghts beyond 200mm are blurry.4. I hear a peculiar static/electric sound when focusing even though the VR is OFF. I'm not sure every copy has the same problem. It doesn't affect images so I keep it but it's the first time I hear an AF-S lens sound so strange.5. Autofocus is fast, but not necessarily accurate everytime, even though I take most of the shots from a car moving 80-100 kms/hour. It's better than what the most people say.6. Images lack microcontrast and rich tones like top quality lenses give. That I expected from this lens. This is what you sacrifice for zoom-coverage and the avarage price.

              Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens:

              I bought this lens for a four day Indian wedding.. it was the best investment I have ever purchased...it's sharp, fast to focus, and does not show any dark vignetting on all corners of the lens when at 28mm. It also locks at 28mm so the lens does not move when holding it up high to get those dancing party pictures ... This lens is also very good for travel...I realize it's not a 2.8 but with Nikon's low light amazing quality sensor at high ISO you don't miss the 2.8 at all...I still have the standard arsenal lenses from Nikon 12 to 24 /24 to 70 /70 to 200 but to be honest...I am planning on using the 28 to 300 all the time because It's hard to tell the difference especially after the image has been run through lightroom and punched up a little...

                Love the lens. Got blurry pictures when viewed on the ipad. Didn't seem to focus well on point that the camera was focusing on. Changed to a Hoya HMC UV filter and got stunning clear pictures. Free filter is going in the garbage. Great lens.

                The best travel lens on the market

                  First of all: I love this lens. As title states it is the best travel and most versatile lens currently on the market. Secondly,this lens cannot be compared with any F 2.8 lenses from Nikon line. If it could, it would cost 3 or 4 times more. It performes very well in all kinds of situations, very decent in low light and focus is sharp and reasonably fast. Yes it is a bit heavier and and fully extended it will throw you out of balance, but if you plan to backpack and travell light, this lens will eliminate need for other lenses. If you are photo enthusiast or semi pro this lens is for you. If you are pro and in need for uncompromised quality, then look elsewhere. This lens is a "must" for explorers and travellers.

                  Had it at Point Pelee in Ontario Canada for the festival of birds. Got some great first use shots of a few birds. Couldn't be happier.

                    Really wanted to like this lens. Cannot see how this is a [$] Nikon product. Similar feel to Chinese Nikon consumer lenses. It has great range, but distorts images to be wider than they really are. 18 inch focus is nice, but camera hunts for focus and many shots were out-of-focus. The ease of manual focusing is really needed, but the focusing ring is cheap plastic that is easily compresses when used (very cheap feel). The lens hood seems to be made of the same cheap plastic. It bends when I set the camera down on it.

                    Use this lens as an all in one lens. Love to carry only one instead a a whole bunch of lenses. Is this lens heavy?, yes it is, but I'm getting use to it. Very good in low light. Haven't try it yet during sport events, but I like the results very much. I'm much a prime lens user, but when you're out there this is the lens I was looking for. Neat affordable lens.

                    Good auto focus, sharp at the center. Soft at the edges, but can be managed by stopping down. Ideal for vacations, fairs, casual events.
