Good lens but bit expensive

The lens is very good. Below are the pros and cons of this lens

Pros:
1. Nice sharp image quality in high light
2. Decent image quality in low light (not to expect much because it's becomes f5.6 lens beyond 200mm)
3. Quick focussing
4. VR works good

Cons:
1. Bit expensive. (Considering Canon 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 is 23k if u but it from Amazon USA)
2. Heavy. Feels bit unbalanced on light cameras like D5100

My suggestion is that you should go for Nikon 55-300mm instead of this one if you do not...

Wonderful product. Produces great results.

I had bought this product from flipkart around 8 months back and has been using it regularly ever since. Packing and delivery of Flipkart has been top notch as always. No complaints there.

This lens is absolutely incredible and produces great results. Very quick auto focus and razor sharp images. This is a must have for serious armatures who likes venturing in the wild. I had used it for bird and animal photography. The zoom is just great and the image quality at 300mm is quite amazing. The ...

Entry level lens for Bird Photography.

I mainly bought it for shooting birds, and am more than satisfied with the results. The VR makes it possible to shoot (if there is enough light) without a tripod, which makes it possible to catch unexpected bird sightings.

Autofocus is fast and great (in daylight) and the zoom range of 70-300mm is great for perched birds, small animals, and pets and children playing.

I also use it hand held for portraits in large gatherings, shooting from distance means natural pictures, and the bokeh is g...

2 Years Used on D70

Handheld: Absolutely stunning photo's, between 8am - 4pm only. You need a faster f2.8 or above lens to shoot fast upto say 6pm or at 7am.

Handheld: Action photography between 10am and 2pm only.

Always carry a tripod with this to get some nice nature stills.

FAST, SHARP but Heavy

A nice telephoto lens, way ahead of the conventional 55-300.
Pro:
1) 70-300 focus is fast ( i hope you can handle a quick focus to 300mm)
2) Nice and Sharp.
3) Somewhat useful for Portrait works
4) 67 mm filter - bandwidth for those who have 18-105 lens kit
5) Will work with Both FX and DX
6) Quality does not drop @ 300mm, as we see in the 55-300mm

Cons:
1) Not truly professional quality ( enough for what you are paying here)
2) My perspective - I hate the Bokeh @ 300mm, if there is a backg...

Got this for my year old D3200 and boy was i glad to buy this!! Prior to this I had the stock 18-55 and the 50mm 1.8D. The 1.8D was for awesome for the clarity but the stock 18-55 lacked the crispness of the pictures. Decided to purchase this after some looking around to replace the stock 18-55. The lens produces some very crisp images with decent lightning. Recommended :)

Excellent Product

I'm really satisfied with this lens in terms of sharpness, color rendering and auto focus speed.
I was in hurry so I booked it under single day delivery and it was delivered as promised with proper packing.
Price of this lens is also very competitive.
I am using Nikon D5300 so effective focal length is 105-450 mm which is very good for normal sports and wild life photography.

Excellent lens.. just love it.

I have bought this one year back. It’s been wonderful experience. I have a Nikon D5100 and this one feels just perfect on it.

* Focusing is really fast.
* Bokeh is wonderful.
* The VR is also very effective under challenging conditions.
* It’s good for Birds and wildlife.
* But it is equally good some occasional portrait as well.
* Less hunting for focusing.

- If the light is low, focus acquiring is bit difficult.
- Can not use tele-converter.

Another option is Nikon 50-300. Tha...

Value for money

I have used a variety of 70-300s, I started with Sigma 70-300, then bought a Tamron 70-300, not satisfied, I picked a Sigma 70-300 APO then gave up and landed with Nikon 70-300 G (non-VR). From all my purchased I learnt two things: 70-300 is a very useful range for short-telephoto shoots like in a zoo, candids, portraits (@135-200mm) and secondly that Nikon optics by far are better than its competitors. Since I did not need a macro in this lens (not easy to use macro feature), I decided to ...
