A super telephoto distinguished by its fast design, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II is further characterized by its advanced optical layout, fast focusing, and image stabilization. Well-suited for sports and wildlife photography, the bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in a variety of lighting conditions and also promotes working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques. The optical design includes three extra-low dispersion elements, which help to minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to gain higher clarity and color accuracy. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color rendering. Complementing the optics, this lens also sports a Silent Wave Motor for fast and accurate autofocus along with VR II image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake by three stops.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II Reviews
I've only had it for a brief period but it's an excellent lens. Even using it with a 2x teleconverter the photographs were sharpe and amazing.
My new Favorite Lens!!!
I am absolutely in love with this lens. I have been renting this lens for a number of years for events and this year I began winning awards for photos shot with this lens and received my first cover photo on a national magazine with it. Its my all-time favorite long lens for what I shoot.
I finally have the prime 300mm Lens and I couldn't be happier. I did have to wait due to backorders, however it came at the the right time to go shoot bears in the mountains of Slovenia. I'm in love with this lens for wildlife photography.
B&H is the best!
I feel very comfortable with B&H, they are very helpful. The lens I purchased is great!
Using this lens on both a Z7 and an 850. Outstanding quality. Heavy but that's part of the price you pay.
Tack sharp with great bokeh =3
I love this lens! Sharp as a tack and amazing, beautiful bokeh separates your subject so well. I have years of experience with it, having rented it at least 15 times over the years. BandH took care of me and I was very happy with a perfect sample that needs no fine tune adjustment on my D500. I shoot whales, which is very challenging in many ways. This was my last puzzle piece to having my perfect kit. I feel like a 6 year old on Christmas morning. Going to Maui for real test in a few more days.
So sharp. Huge upgrade from my 200-500.
Very versatile large telephoto. Can use tele-extenders for focal lengths up to 600mm. Fast focus very clean photos.
