Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Overview

Covering an immense wide to tele range, the AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR from Nikon is a versatile all-in-one zoom designed for FX-format cameras. Helping to maintain high image quality throughout the extensive 10.7x zoom range is an advanced optical design that uses aspherical and extra-low dispersion glass to suppress aberrations and distortion. A Super Integrated Coating is also used to minimize flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Also benefitting image quality is VR II image stabilization, which compensates for up to 3.5 stops of camera shake to help realize sharp imagery when shooting handheld. Additionally, a Silent Wave Motor is used to provide fast and precise autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override.

All-in-one zoom, covering wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths, is designed for Nikon F-mount FX-format cameras, however it can also be used with DX models where it provides a 42-450mm equivalent focal length range.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce 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.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by 3.5 stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

What adaptor would I buy to fit this lens to a micro 4/3 body?
Asked by: Bryan
If you are fitting this FX lens to a Nikon body then you don't need an adapter. I use this lens on a D3400. If you are trying to fit it to an camera body other than a Nikon, check that camera body manufacturer website.

Is this fully compatible with D3000?
Asked by: Joshua
Yes in terms of full focusing and aperture control, you wont have any issues on the D3000, but the lens is meant for a full frame sensor so it will be a tighter view than it would on an FX camera.

Is this lens compatible with my Nikon D300s camera and can it be used for wide angle shots?
Asked by: Jules
This lens is compatible with the D300s but it is an FX lens and it wouldn't really be wide angle on your camera. An 18-300mm would be much more appropriate. You can click on the link below to view; https://bhpho.to/2Uf0vZj
