Some Nikkor ED 300mm f/2 IF samples
Jul 19, 2011

I recently acquired a Nikkor 300mm f/2 and its custom 1.4x TC, and it was suggested to me that some might like to see some samples. I've posted quite a few on my blog [ http://regex.info/blog ], and here's a direct link to the 300mm f/2 category:


One of the first pictures I took with it, handheld, from this blog post: http://regex.info/blog/2011-05-07/1763

Focus is pretty spot on on the bird's eye, though that's entirely by luck.

A recent one, shot with a monopod at dusk, from this blog post: http://regex.info/blog/2011-07-19/1824

Two more with a monopod at dusk, from this blog post: http://regex.info/blog/2011-07-14/1819

The lens really attracts smiles and pleasant attention. It's very fun, but as you can tell, I need more practice with the focus. f/2 at 300mm is unforgiving.

Here are a couple handheld during the day, from this blog post: http://regex.info/blog/2011-07-01/1810

Finally, here's one of me using it, bracing it on my knee, from this blog post giving my first impressions of the lens: http://regex.info/blog/2011-05-11/1769
