  • Versatile, yet sharp.

  • February 04, 2011
  • By: Steve

Although I only owned pro glass before buying this lens, I bought this with the intention of returning it. It really surprised me how sharp the photos were. This lens is very small (smaller than my 14-24), very light, and super compact. And it packs a punch. The VRII is really helpful at long focal lengths. Great for light travel and hiking. You can carry this all day long. This lens is designed for versatility, not speed, thus I rated it as such. You can see samples here:

  • One lens to rule them all!?

  • September 01, 2013
  • By: Ian

Bought this lens for recent travel through Alaska, BC and AB with my D600, but it's gone on to become my "one lens to rule them all". Pictures are usually sharp even at 300mm due to the VRII. I had a tripod with me on that trip but I think I only ever used it once. It's bigger and heavier than, say, the Tamron 18-270, but that is a DX lens. Because of the weight I expected it would have "zoom creep", but my 28-300 has no creep when pointing up or down. Like most all such big lenses it will creep when walking around with the camera on a neck strap, so I've formed the habit of using the built-in zoom lock - my fingers can find the unlock and slide it pretty quickly. Overall this is a great lens for general use on any FX Nikon.

  • Money Well Spent

  • September 22, 2013
  • By: Ron

If you travel, you know the problem with bringing your photographic 'stuff'. It puts you over the weight limit very quickly. So, you have to scale back. This lens will help. It covers a wide range and produces some excellent images. To some, it may not be a 'pro' lens but it certainly will give you some excellent images. I use this on my D700 and am more than pleased with the images it produces. On top of that, it reduces the amount of equipment I have to bring and carry with me. I think it is well worth the money and will add greatly to the shots you get and the fun you have on your next trip.

  • This could be your only FX Lens

  • April 11, 2013
  • By: Gestur J

I bought this for my D800. A great starting point. It really covers almost any lens you may need, although I do have 6 impressive FX lenses, for special occasions. If you want to leave with only one lens, this or the 50mm 1.4 are my favorite choices. Great results hand held with the D800 with its VR and the camera's amazing ISO's.

  • My walk-around lens

  • August 11, 2015
  • By: Chris

Bought this lens to replace my Nikon 18-200mm DX lens when I moved from DX to FX format. This lens covers the same focal equivalents that the DX lens I previously had so everything was familiar. This lens seems much sharper than my old DX lens especially at the long end. Love the versatility of this lens - from the wide end at 28mm to the zoomed end at 300mm. I find this is a perfect walk around lens. I use it when out with the family on vacations or at my kids events. It covers pretty much any focal length I might need during these times and the images I have taken so far are sharp and vibrant. As a previous reviewer said the VRII is very helpful at the long end when shooting hand-held which is how I usually shoot this lens. Great all-around lens.
