Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6G AF Nikkor Lens Review

Nikkor f4-5.6G 70-300 is a superb value

 

The Nikon Nikkor f4-5.6G 70-300mm AF zoom lens represents Nikon's best zoom-lens value. With a maximum aperture of 4.0 rather than 2.8, the user loses a stop, but the commensurate price and value offset this misgiving.

Excellent Lens but no AF on many DSLRs

 

This is an excellent lens, especially if you are used to old-school manual focus SLRs. I bought it thinking that I would have autofocus but when it wouldn't, I actually looked at the manual and it states auto focus is not available on a long list of...

AWESOME LENSE

 

Fabulous Lense. I used it recently taking scenery pictures outdoors in Alaska. I got good clear quality pictures of eagles, the mountains, etc. I use the Nikon D50 and this lense is a great addition to the camera.

Good Lens

 

Typical Nikon lens - very good all around. I like the fact that it is very light weight, especially for the zoom range.
