Best lens ever Posted by: from: on This lens covers macro all the way out to zoom at 300 for a full frame camera. I don't need to never take it off my camera

Great camera for large distant objects Posted by: from: on I absolutely love this camera. It's perfect. I took it on a recent trip to Africa and used it on endless safaris and animal conservation projects. Two things to keep in mind though: it is a ZOOM lens, so anything up close will appear blurry and out of focus. The nature photography setting on the camera base helps with this, but you want to be at least 1.5- 2 feet away from any small objects you want to take a picture of. Also, distant items, if they're smaller, may not focus properly. The lens constantly focused on the trees, when I wanted an image of an antelope. However, using the manual focus fixed the majority of this problem---just to keep in mind for beginners. Overall though, I am very pleased with this purchase.

Great if you're planning on going full frame Posted by: from: on If you're going to be using strictly DX Nikon cameras, then don't waste money on this. I currently have a DX camera but I'm planning to go ful frame FX in the future. Thus, I'm not going to spend any more money on DX lenses. The convenient range this lens offers is incredible and I love how versatile it is. It also does a decent job of macro photography via its incredible 300mm zoom. Plus, when I go full FX, I can pretty much use this lens for any scenario.

Sharp Images and a Very Usable Range 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 lens 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 lens 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!! 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
