Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

 

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a sharp, compact walkaround lens, but it shows quite a lot of distortion throughout its zoom range.

Sharp throughout zoom range. 10.7x zoom ratio. Optical stabilization. Relatively compact

Loads of distortion. Soft edges at maximum aperture

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR ($1,049.95 direct) is a zoom lens with an impressive 10.7x range, designed for use with full-frame Nikon cameras. It doesn't manage the fixed aperture of the company's pro-level zooms, but if you're...

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

 

A convenient 10.7x superzoom lens with Vibration reduction suitable for use on Nikon FX format cameras.

Good optical performance for a lens of this type; Fast silent focusing; Vibration reduction is very effective; Build quality

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

 

Is Nikon's new 28-300mm the ideal travel lens for FX format cameras? Here Gary Wolstenholme puts the lens through its paces.

Good optical performance for a lens of this type; Fast silent focusing; Vibration reduction is very effective; Build quality

Maybe a bit on the pricey side; Distortion at 28mm and 300mm

If you're the proud owner of an FX format Nikon camera and are looking for something that gives you this kind of convenience for travel or simply to compliment your existing kit then this lens is certainly worth a look, that is if you've nearly £900 to...

Best bang for the bucks.

 

If you only have one lens for the FX camera this should be it. It is not a macro but it focus very close, images are sharp, focus is quick, agreat vacation lens.
