  • Great Lens

  • March 31, 2011
  • By: James

This is a fantastic lens for the money. From 70-200 it is very sharp and although I get a little CA out towards 300mm it is still very good quality and nothing that a little editing can't correct. The VR works brilliantly and has allowed me to take photos that I wouldn't be able to get if I went with a shorter lens. I use this on a cropped sensor body and have used this a lot in nature hikes and portraits. I won't get rid of this lens even if I get a 2.8 lens in this range because the 70-300 vr is a joy to use and hike with. Much lighter than a 70-200 and more range. It focuses fast and instant manual override is a treat. I also use it for closeups of flowers on occasion and although it isn't a macro lens it is still pretty good at 1:6 ratio. If you are think of getting the lesser versions of this lens I can tell you just get this one as it will also work on a full frame body later on.

  • Excellent telephoto zoom for the price

  • January 27, 2013
  • By: Maria

I've been using this lens for about a year now. It's a great lens and can't be beat at this price point. I use it mainly for wildlife photography. I take it with me on hikes and have used it at the zoo. It's quite sharp until the extreme telephoto end where it becomes a bit soft but the images are still quite usable. The VR works great & has allowed me to use this lens hand held in situations that would require a tripod if not for the VR feature. Focusing is also quite fast. I would definitely recommend this lens.

  • Great Buy

  • March 26, 2012
  • By: Alexander

Cant really complain about this lens, especially considering the price. If your shooting outdoors and you have lots of light, you cant really go wrong with this lens. If your shooting indoor sports or during low light, (dawn or dusk) you might want to consider investing in the considerably more expensive 70-200mm f/2.8. If you can afford that lens its great, if not you'll still be happy with this one, plus its got an extra 100mm on the 70-200mm. Ive been using it for years now and its got me some pretty sweet shots, Just make sure you dont cheap out a filter if you plan on keeping one on all the time. After removing my cheap UV filter ive noticed a significant increase in image contrast and colour vibrancy. Overall a great lens and well worth 5 stars

  • Versitile and fun.

  • January 03, 2016
  • By: Steve

I use this glass on a Nikon D5500 and am very happy with it. From outdoor to indoor you'll get very nice pictures. Sometimes it's hard to believe how nice the pictures come out due to the fact that it only cost me $500 (price matched with BestBuy's sale). Thank you Henry's, I sure got a good one ! Chromatic Aberration at 300mm is noticeable only when I shoot a subject that's farther than 50meters away. Purchased this lens at the London South location.

Good quality lens. It's not a pro lens but it works fine especially if your on a fixed budget. Only drawback is you can't use a nikon teleconverter on it.

  • Great Lens

  • June 19, 2014
  • By: Ken

I've been using the 70-300 for my sons football games. Mostly outdoors and getting very fast shutter speeds is a snap. I set my D7000 to "C" focus and it is very fast. Shots are clear and tight. It is doing exactly what I want. I would have loved the 70-200 2.8 but I don't need the 2.8 for outside shooting and the price difference is considerable. Maybe later. I hope to try shooting hockey this winter and we'll see how it works. I know I'll have to push the ISO considerably but it will be fun to try. I got mine on sale at Henrys so it was even more attractive. I don't do this for a living so it is well worth it...Good value!

  • Best telephoto in the price range

  • January 09, 2012
  • By: Matt

I tried a couple similarly priced 70-300mm lenses before I decided to buy this one. Its sharp from 70-200. Its a little soft at at 300mm but definitely still usable. I usually didn't zoom past 200 and just cropped it to where 300mm would have been. Focuses really quickly and the VR works well too. Overall there is no other lens in this price range that comes clos to this one. I got some great candid portraits and birds in flight photos with this lens, I never used to shoot much telephoto stuff before I got this lens but I found it was attached to my camera quite a bit. Just don't confuse it with the cheaper non-VR version which isn't nearly as good.

  • Fantastic Zoom Lens

  • October 07, 2011
  • By: Andrew

I bought this lens with a package of the Nikon D90 with 18-55mm lens. I wanted this zoom ratio, as it was the same that I had on my old Olympus setup so I was used to the zoom. Have to say that this beats out the olympus in build quality and crispness of shots, a great lens to have in your camera bag at all times. Autofocus is quick and quiet, and the VR is great when taking shots and holding the camera. If you are going to take shots on a tripod, turn this feature off, as it will take longer to focus.

  • Awesome!

  • June 29, 2011
  • By: Chris

Absolutely a great lens! This was the first lens I purchased, other than the kit lens that comes with the camera. It is very sharp and has a great focal range. I agree with other reviewers that the sharpness does fall off closer to the 300mm but still a great value lens. I have used this for a number of portrait shoots and the quality has been great.

  • Excellent Value

  • April 07, 2011
  • By: John

From 70-230mm this lens is terrific. Sharpness drops off a little at the far end of the zoom, but is still quite acceptable. The VR works beautifully, and this is fairly compact and light weight compared to the much more expensive alternatives. I'm very happy with this lens.

  • Good Prosumer level optic

  • December 26, 2010
  • By: Islandspark

For the price you pay this is a great lens, Its a little dark (slow) if you're used to fast professional glass but even then I was struck the the range of this lens and its ability to reach out and touch someone... Frame filling portraits with reasonable background bokeh from across the room are as simple as aim and shoot
