D800 / 28-300 VR good enough for me...

Hello all...........

Much talk about the 28-300 VR on the D800 around the many forums. Many stating it just isnt up to it.

Well depends if you're pro i guess. I have high standards but find this lens good enough for me.

I just enjoy taking pictures and there isnt a lens any better for having fun than this.

here's one from tonight.....in dark fading daylight down my garden.

I've placed the exif on the image to show that its 'pretty' good for what it is.

Again this is NOT finest professional studio quality....but happy Jonathan in the back garden quality.

And I'm sure this lens would do for many on here. Might even sell this for 3 grand??!!

seriously though.....I dont think this is bad for the focal length / lighting / ISO / camera combo....

Reading on the forums there are MANY who are thinking about getting this lens and concerned....I'd say go for it!

Cheers,

Jonathan. (Fletch)
