Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

An evolution of the tested DX telephoto zoom, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR from Nikon is a 105-400mm-equivalent lens featuring an updated focusing mechanism along with a compact form factor. One extra-low dispersion element is used in the optical design to greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to maintain image clarity. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to minimize reflections and flare for greater contrast. Suiting both photo and video applications, the AF-P designation indicates the use of a pulse stepping motor that offers notably quiet, fast, and precise autofocus performance. Additionally, Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for up to four stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.

Telephoto zoom is designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and provides a 105-450mm equivalent focal length.
One extra-low dispersion element greatly reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
AF-P pulse motor uses stepping motors to deliver impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications.
VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by four stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Autofocus and VR switches have been removed from the lens design for a sleek profile; these operations are now accessible in compatible cameras' menu systems.

    Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 reviews

    AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight DX tele zoom with super fast autofocus Lightning-fast autofocus, super lightweight for such a long zoom, VR, cheapthis is a great new DX lens! It zooms smoothly and has manual focus override. I wish it had a metal mount but otherwise my initial impression is very good. Be warned: this lens is *not* compatible with many older Nikon cameras including D7000. It works with D7100 and 7200, D3300-3400, D5200-5500, and D500 (see lens manual at if you'd like to confirm this). VR (and autofocus) is turned on and off in camera menu as there is no physical switch, but you might as well just leave it on. Update firmware if you don't see this setting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bargain! Having owned at least 20 lenses over the years, and tested a dozen of these using an ISO 12233 chart as well as distance settings, I have come up with the following review: 1- Very quick focus. Much quicker than the old 70-300 with VR (I own both). 2- Exceedingly sharp throughout the 70-300 range. Edge to edge. Amazing. 3- Very lightweight at 14 ounces. 4- Unbelievably inexpensive for its performance. Cons: No lens shade included. How dumb of Nikon! Lens shade is on back order. 300mm stops at f6.3 . . . and one of the reasons it is so light! This is probably Nikon's best value to price lens made. Sure, it has some plastic components, just don't sling it around like a pro lens. It isn't!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, a great lens. Just starting to play with it. Seems great. Very, very sharp at 300mm;(have not really tried it at shorter focal lengths; assum it would be just as sharp if not sharper). 100% crops to pixel peep look excellent. Using it on a D500 helps, of course. Relatively light; no sense that it is heavy. Distortion control on D500 works well with it--no noticeable distortion. Autofocus is very fast and quiet. Hits on flying birds good. Smallish maximum aperture not an issue for my use. Bottom line, I love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for the price! Lens arrived late this afternoon. Took it to my backyard to play with it. Used visitors to my bird feeders as my subjects. Shots were taken in relatively low light as it was around 7:30 P.M. and the sun was lower in the sky. Also, there were a lot of trees around which reduced available light. I was pleased with the results. Can't wait to shoot in better lighting conditions. No, this little zoom won't produce professional results in low light, but it has potential to take great shots. Lens was used on a d500.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Lens I bought the 18-55 AF-P lens as soon as it was available and was so impressed with the improved sharpness and handling over the previous 18-55 versions that I purchased the 70-300 AF-P hoping that the same would be true of this lens and I was not disappointed. The lens is sharper than the previous 55-200 and 55-300 lens that I had. The zoom is smooth, the manual focus works well and while I don't use it a lot I do like not having to move a switch. The mounts are plastic and while I would prefer they were stainless steel it keeps the cost down and I have never had one break even though I have had several plastic mount lens. I am careful with them though and don't pick the camera up by the lens. I find the 18-55 AF-P and this lens along with the D5500 are all I need. I have the D750 with several primes which I love but find myself using the D5500 and these 2 lens more and more when I want a lightweight combination. Both lens are definitely winners.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AF-P = NO Manual Focus on pre 2013 DSLRs !!! Just got this lens without realizing that it won't work on anything except newest DSLR models. I never dreamed that Nikon would manufacture something that CAN'T BE FOCUSED even manualy on any camera made before 2013! Even D3200, D5100, D7000, D800 and even D4 are totally out of luck! And to put it in extra small print on Nikon USA website is really wrong. So why 5 stars?� If does AF quickly and silently on D810 and VR works great. And you still get 15,360,000 pixels out of it in DX mode. Silent AF in video mode is the huge plus that AF-P is all about.� + It's a great silent AF, ED VR lens for the price, especially refurbished, if it is compatible with your camera.� -� It's absolutely useless on incompatible models! So read the specs very carefully!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING LITTLE LENS! I love this inexpensive, little zoom! It is way sharper than it has a right to be. When I keep this lens set a f8, it is absolutely TACK SHARP throughout its zoom range. I just printed a 40 panoramic of a great egret in flight, that I shot with this lens set at f8, on a Nikon D7100, at 200 ASA and the print is as sharp as I get with any of my high end glass. Just unbelievable for such an inexpensive lens. The AF-P autofocus is the fastest I have seen on ANY's just always in focus. VR works great! The lens has an inexpensive plastic lens mount, but it seems sturdy and locks solidly and smoothly onto the camera. It has no buttons or switches on its body. AF and VR must be turned on and off on the camera body and I cannot turn off VR, when using it on a D7100. However, when locked solidly on my tripod, the VR doesn't seem to be an issue, during long exposures. I love the 105-450mm range on my crop sensor D7100. This is a great little lens for tracking birds in flight.... small, very lightweight and quick to use. I highly recommend this amazing little zoom lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, fast and sharp. This is a great lens. It's super light and when attached to my d5500 it's lighter than my p900! Great for arthritic hands! Focuses fast and images are sharp for a consumer lens. Original image at 300mm, P mode, straight from camera. 2nd image cropped. Not bad for a lens in this price range.
