AF-I 300mil 2.8 IF ED Handheld no VR
May 29, 2012

Would like any feedback regarding this lens. some pics while testing the lens. Thanx in advance.

OOC, no sharpening, hazy 88% humidity day, handheld in the middle of the street with on-coming traffic, no VR, first generation of in-lens motor pre-AF-S

...and with a lot of shot discipline and a lil LUCK. Who needs VR/VRII

...tracked it just before I lost focus on the trees

Ken Rockwell says, "I wasn't impressed. The AF was slow and the motor system sounded like a toy car's electric motor. It is slower than an AF-S..."

I'm so glad i got this lens! Please share any of your experience.
