The D800/D800E and Lense bashing the 28-300
May 11, 2012

I just want some feedback on why do people hate the 28-300 so much, anytime that we have someone posting some pictures from a 28-300 we get an army of posters who tear the poster apart saying its soft, its fuzzy, get prime etc,etc.

I for one own the trinity of lenses as well as the 28-300. There are few places around the world where i cannot risk carying my trinity or even displaying the Nikon name on the camera ( I use black tape & black strap). A single lense 28-300 comes in very handy....

I fairly decent pictures from the 28-300 where I may have non, or out of pocket of few $$$ if someone had mugged me for my equipment.

I also see some amazing pictures from mansurov

But everytime I read the comment here I made to feel that 28-300 is a crappy lense and one should get rid of it ASAP.

Is it really that bad, or is there something wrong with the technique of shooting, maybe using a faster shutter speed, or F8, give me some pointers ( I feel buyers remose)
