Peiasdf: Wow, this is the longest DSLR superzoom ever made. Sigma and Tamron only made up to 270mm.

Nikon is a late comer to the superzoom scene (compares to Sigma and Tamron) but I guess with the price Nikon can charge they can afford better design and parts.

Not strictly - there was also Tamron's 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3. But, having used mine a fair bit (until the AF *and* VR died, a whole 18 months after purchase, and outside warranty), I wouldn't recommend seeking one out - quite soft at the long end, and prone to noticeable CA.

With three ED elements, I'd hope this is a superior performer.. !
