Re: Any Nikkor 70-300 VR Tests on D800

An image says more than 1000 words.

I made this test with my D800, tripod, mirror up, cord release. The question was: Is the 70-300 good enough for me as a landscape photographer? Or do I really need the bulky 70-200? I ordered a 70-200 and shot a simple test series.

The answer is a clear no. It is simply to weak in the corners. I will keep the new 70-200 and sell my old 70-300.

100% crops, direct from raw file, no processing, no sharpening. 70-300 left column, 70-200 right side.
