Ok I`m about to buy 1 of those beauties for my D3300, I haven't seen 1 professional comparison review and I`m asking the photographers here who work or tested those 2 lenses to help me decide which is better overall. Thanks

I have hunted around to answer this question without starting a thread and my results seem to be a mixed bag so I thought I would ask directly! I recently bought a used Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED on Ebay. The seller claimed it was "As New" used for less than 4 hours but I suspect that was just a fib told to help sell the lens (I also noticed he had sold another of these lenses about a year prior. Not sure what to make of that). I bought this lens to upgrade my kit 55-300mm DX lens that came...

I'm looking at a kit, D5300 and Nikkor 70-300 f4-5.6 w/SWM for outdoor sports, soccer and swim - typically sunny to blistering sunny. Looking to find out... hit/miss rates, any focus speed issues, posted samples... how well this combo will work? Will I need a 7000/7100? Any input will help! Thanks  Dave

Hello, I'm in a bit of dilemma. I own D5100, 18-55 mm kit, 35 mm f/1.8G and 70-300 mm VR and my shooting interests include - portraits, toddlers in action, travel, nature, landscapes, monuments and architectures and macros. So far, for portrait purpose, I was using 70-300 mm which is a very good lens except for its AF hunts in low light situations. So I'm considering buying a used 85mm f/1.8G. Is it a correct decision? I'm afraid this lens make my 70-300 mm obsolete - is that so? Or should I...

Is it past practice or likely that a manufacturer, specifically Nikon, would offer discounts on cameras, specifically D7100, during or shortly after Photokina? STOP reading here if you would like to answer the question. The following is anecdotal and contains no further questions, mearly a background on my reason for asking. You nave been warned. So, I have weathered a long, 10-year research project (read: I finally have a D-SLR penciled into the budget) and while the mythical D400 is my...

I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds. Once I started to bump up against the (then) limits of the system I then took the somewhat nuts step of going hardcore FF with the D800E... Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost. I've tended to concentrate...

I've been doing some recreational bird photography with the first-generation 55-200 (no VR), and while it's adequate for snapping pictures of birds at feeders, I'd like something with a bit more range. VR/VC and faster AF would be appreciated as well. I don't expect my pictures to be National Geographic quality, but there are some cool birds in my area (notably Ospreys, Kingfishers, and Eastern Bluebirds) that I'd like to document. It's just for fun. My budget is $500 or so. Thanks for the help!

Hello all, new to DP Review here.  Want to thank anyone in advance for any insight or responses regarding my questions- Backstory:  My father and I want to buy a new lens to share.  We are torn between the Nikkor 70-300 VR lens, and the Tamron 70-300 VC.  My dad is from the old school and does not want to put anything on his camera (D90) that is not a Nikkor lens.  I'm a very open to trying a 3rd party lens because I have put in the research in to it and see that a handful of lenses have...
