Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Dec 31, 2012

Given the price, an excellent lens, very sharp even on FX, up to 200 or 240 mm. VR is outstanding: I have tracked birds in flight and obtained superb shots. As you get closer to 300, softness creeps in. I did get some sharp shots at 300, but everything had to be exactly correct, but still not as sharp as 200. A great, cheap way to get VR and 200-250. It loses a star because of performance at 300.

Problems:

None
