The 300mm focal length has always been popular with professionals and advanced amateurs due to the combination of magnification, portability and close-focusing. 300mm is about the longest lens that can be hand held (in daytime lighting situations). The Tamron 300mm f/5.6 manual focus lens for Nikon is a nice compromise in size and speed.
This lens has a Prong that will meter couple to the older Nikon 35mm SLR camera such as the Nikon F/F2 and Nikkormat FTN cameras.
