Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lens This Lens is very versatile, its my first lens for a new Nikon 810 and I'm very pleased with it. I do a lot of outdoor photography, plants, landscapes, aviation, equestrian, you get the idea, and it just great, admittedly I haven't tried other lenes and probably don't need to so won't for a while. 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent lens Since buying this I've had it attached to my D610 almost permanently. It's quite heavy but the versatility it offers makes it worth lugging around, and the image quality is superb. The only time I attach my 35 & 50mm lenses is when shooting in dimly lit surroundings indoors. 08 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Walk About Lens Although on the heavy side this lens is a great walkabout lens, its 28-300mm covers most of the range needed in one body. The VR modes enable shooting in poorer light than you would expect with good results. The VR on this lens has both normal and active modes, it is also is quite fast f5.6 at 300mm most zooms of this range are f6.3 or slower. Focus is fast and silent with the built in Silent Wave Motor 05 June 2013
