300 f/4 AF-s is a wonderfull lens, as most people already mentioned in this threat.

Something what has not been mentioned yet is that is also a very nice close-up lens since the close focus distance is less then 1m. This makes it a very useable macro-lens as well. So you will buy two lenses in one buy actually.

two thumbs up for the Nikkor.

Nice shots Rutger.  And I agree with you assessment of this lens.  However, while the lens does do excellent close-focus, it does not CF in less than a meter.  It will CF down to about 1.5 meters though--very impressive.  Best!
