  • Nice shots. I doubt I'll ever get rid of my ancient 300f/4 IF-ED. For the money I paid 5 years ago ($450) nothing will touch it.
  • I use a circular polarizer with my 80-200f/2.8 AF-D lens. I don't use it all the time, but it definitely has it's place in my arsenal of tools.
  • The older 300f/4 screw drive lens uses an 82mm filter, and the best lens cap for this lens is made by Tamron. I have this combo, and don't use the leatherette lens cover that originally came with ...
  • Actually, it is a pro-level lens. Build quality, constant f/2.8, weather sealed, AF performance and overall optical performance. It's certainly not a standard consumer-oriented lens.
  • Perhaps you should have sent them the camera body and lens combo so they could check them together. Something about that pair must be off. Perhaps when you get the lens back you can try to fine ...
  • I've always had good results with both my 17-55's paired up with a D300... seems like they were really almost perfectly designed for each other. I shoot mine wide open quite often, and stopped ...
  • No doubt the second image is sharper, but the first one doesn't look like it's focused to my eyes...seems just a bit off. If that's as sharp as that lens goes, it's not acceptable. Speaking of the ...
  • Yes, it is.
  • Replied in Great Lens
    Go for it. You won't be sorry... one of my favorite lenses. Mines old as hell, and been through the wars, so to speak, but it's a lovable hunk of glass.
  • If I got a D9300 I'd likely keep my 17-55f/2.8, my nifty-fifty and 80-200f/2.8. I might replace my Tokina 12-24 with a Tokina 11-16f/2.8. And I imagine my old 300f/4 would still produce great ...
  • The field of focus curvature I was referring to isn't something you correct for...it's not a distortion issue, like barrel or pincushion distortion. It's inherent on the optical design of the ...
  • It should be a reliable workhorse for event photography. Fast AF, good AF in less than stellar light, excellent image quality. Just become familiar with the field of focus curvature so you won't ...
  • Here are some samples with the 17-55. Nikkor 17-55 samples
  • I'm not sure how a newer version of this lens (17-55f/2.8) is going to really make a difference in the kind of images I can get, and I sure as heck am not jealous of the inferior Canon 17-55f/2.8 ...
  • Reviews may be one thing, but you can check out some real world examples of 17-55f/2.8 images here. Nikkor 17-55f/2.8 shots with D300 It's not a perfect lens, but what is? My copy still feels like ...
