A bit oversharpened and oversaturated for my taste.

Re: Let's see more 70-300 VR Captures!

have a look at http://www.parsprophoto.com , look at galleries and then choose " jenaplaneet kerst 2006" all with the 70-300 vr reduced in size, no editing just raw nc 4.2 processing. original files look darn good.

I find it a very good contribution to my lens line up, sold the 70-210 d whatever (good optics but not what I needed). It feels good, handles good, performance is as good as you can expect for this price point, optics deliver good color and sharpness. great fun lens.

I haven't taken any decent shots yet with this lens, but here's a snapshot of a moving object.

Shot at 300mm, f/5.6, 1/500, D200 with high sharpening, not cropped.

D50, 1/160th second; f/9; 300 mm (handheld). Fog plus some PPing reduces sharpness (deliberately), so don't judge sharpness from this one:

D50, 1/25th second; f/4.5; 70 mm (near min focus distance):

D50; 1/60th second; f/6.3; 165 mm; off-camera SB-800 for room fill:

D50; 1/5th second (handheld!); f/5.6; 220 mm:

the first 4 shots in the album are my most recent with this lens. so far I am very happy with VR allowing me very slow shutter speeds handheld.

Re: Let's see more 70-300 VR Captures!

O.K. here are a few pictures from Switzerland. I bought my 70-300 VR last Thursday and It fulfills my expectations so far. Of course it's not a replacement for a fast lens like the 70-200 2.8 but it perfectly fits into my bag and it'll serve as a travel lens together with my Sigma 17-70. If I plan to shoot action pictures in low light i'll probably buy a faster, bigger and heavier lens.

All pictures taken with Nikon D80, SRGB Ia, handheld, slightly sharpened in Capture NX and resized.

Regards and a happy new year
