D300 does IR
looks to me your photo was not focus properly.
Or perhaps mentioning buying a cheap filter.
And yes, the lens you used has a big hotspot.
Here is a sample of my D300 with 16-35F4.
Looks like a small hotspot by the rock but i forgot to cover my viewfinder!..
Yea tip cover your viewfinder.
