Nikon AF NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4-5.6G Overview

Simple yet versatile, the AF Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4-5.6G from Nikon is a wide-reaching telephoto zoom well-suited for a variety of subjects ranging from portraits to wildlife. The 13 elements, 9 groups optical design features a Super Integrated Coating to suppress flare and ghosting in order to generate greater contrast and color accuracy when working harsh lighting and backlit conditions. The lens's autofocus system affords quick and precise control, and manual focus adjustment is also available. Additionally, a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality to suit shallow depth of field techniques.

Telephoto zoom is designed for FX-format F-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 105-450mm equivalent focal length.
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.
Autofocus system is compatible with select Nikon DSLRs that support D-type lenses, and offers quick and precise focusing performance.

Autofocus is not supported by DSLRs lacking an autofocus motor, such as the D3000-series, D5000-series, D40, D40X, and D60, where the lens may be used with manual focus only.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Great beginner zoom lens

For the price, this lens is a great first zoom lens for most applications. I personally use it to take pictures of wildlife. I plan to use this lens until I purchase a 600 mm lens for double the zoom. This is a great lens for capturing wildlife on hikes and when you can get somewhat close to nature

Just received new Nikkor 70-300mm lens. I love it. Works well on my D-90 Nikon camera. I recommend it for outdoors photos and wild life captures.

Remarkable lens for the price

Yes, it's a plastic lens but the pics are quite good, I don't get into the technical stuff too much and comparing it to my 40yr old Nikkor glass it seems to hold it's own. Buy it!

Unsharp !

Needs a lot of light, and is still very soft, even at it's best. Yes, it's a low prize, but not worth it. Get a better lens you won't regret it.

This is a cheap lens with a variable max aperture, more or less a kit lens. The zoom puts many subjects in range and opens possibilities if you just want to try out a mid-range zoom. But your pictures will be pretty much for your own pleasure. Chromatic aberration is terrible. I'm not a geek on this, just a photographer working his way up, but even for me the color flares are intolerable. Unusable for selling to clients. Focus is soft as well. The focus I expected--the lens costs less than a tenth of the cost of a fixed aperture 300mm more in the pro range. I could work around that by avoiding crops. But the color aberration is a deal killer. Pictures are useless with any crop. Build isn't so good either. The zoom is very rough. I use it--used it--only at 300mm, so that wasn't a factor, but it may be for you because you'll jar the camera as you zoom. The focus is fairly fast, a little noisy. All that said, at the price (I paid less than $100 for an open box), it's really quite a deal. You get a lot of fun for very little money. Check the major lens reviewers to get the specs and the down and dirty. Bottom line: if you want to have fun and see whether a 300mm is for you, this is a great lens. I actually recommend it highly. If you want to sell your pictures however, look up the line and open your wallet.

Perfect

It arrived in perfect condition. Sharp right out of the box-no adjustment necessary. Smooth, fast, autofocus. Working great for me.

Good economy lens

I use this lens on both my 850 & 810 bodies & can tell you it's very good as long as there's ample light, I find it easier to use this lightweight gem than to carry the 80-200mm or the 28-300mm lenses. I will try to add photos so one can see for themselves.
