Sharp Images and a Very Usable Range5 Posted by: from: on This lens is used with a new Nikon D750 body and replaces a DX 18-200 lens I used with a retired D7000. I have found it produces very sharp images with no serious distortion. I compared it with a recently purchased FX16-35 Nikkor lens. This lens is as sharp as the wide angle and has less distortion. I have done nice architectural work with it for exteriors and need to see how it does on interiors where the 16-35 will probably do better. The lens is also very nice on group photos and has a wide enough DOF that everyone is in focus. It is heavier than it's DX equivalent but its manageable and it has the lock but doesn't have barrel creep so far. Slightly stiff zoom ring has a sure feel. I am very Happy with this lens and will probably have in mounted on my D750 90%+ of the time.

Good lens5 Posted by: from: on This was a good all purpose lens for my recent trip. I could shoot fairly close up as well as bringing the subject in from a good distance.

very good lens5 Posted by: from: on This lens is good when you need to take only one or two lenses. Some distortion at close to 300 . Also a little distortion at 28 buy it will suffice. A dedicated macro is better but it costs more. Add a fifty mm and you are good to go.

300 mm - expected more out of it!!3 Posted by: from: on Pros: 1. perfect size for a 300 mm. 2. perfect lens considering the range, yo do not have to change lenses. 3. perfect with a tripod Cons: 1. Auto-focus is a bit slow. 2. captures some shake if handheld - when captured at high focal length 3. felt the clarity is much lower than 18-200 mm., had high expectation

Great all around lens5 Posted by: from: on A wonderful lens for unplanned opportunities. It is slower than prims, yet with most modern full framers you can increase the ISO while taking advantage of its stability system. A good investment for versatility when needed.

Nikon lens4 Posted by: from: on I got this lens because it works great with my camera body. I love how easy it is to use. There's different apertures and is very standard. I would definitely recommend this to another.

Very nice general purpose lens5 Posted by: from: Ohio on After I corrected a slight back-focus issue with this lens on my full-frame Nikon D610, I have been able to take some very nice photos. The combination of this lens with the D610 is quite heavy but very useful for a wide variety of photo opportunities. I have been leaving this lens on my D610 for most shooting. The attached photo was taken with the lens extended to its full zoom length and then cropped very tightly in DXO Optics Pro 10. It was one of a number of photos published on an online news service for which I am a regular contributor.

Great do it all lens!5 Posted by: from: on For the price point, this is an excellent lens that you can leave on your body if you're out and walking/on a tour. You should still carry primes or specialty lenses if needed.
