Awesome lens, wish I'd gotten it sooner!


I previously owned the non VR version of this lens and let me tell you... the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR NIKKOR lens knocks the socks off of the non VR Nikkor AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 D ED lens. The VR II technology works to perfection. I recently...

Very Nice


Wonderful Zoom! Played with it around Christmas with great result. Looking forward to a full fledged outing! Bird Photos from 15 Meters was good, will try to get better. Portraits of people were... well a bit disturbing... unless you are an Ear Nose...

Worth the price; fulfilled my needs


The lens was excellent and met all of my needs and expectations except at autofocus on maximum zoom, the image was not as sharp as it was at 250 mm or less, even on a tripod. For the price paid, it was well worth the investment. Perhaps I need to work...

Great zoom


I got this lens for a trip to the Yellowstone National Park and it was really useful to capture the wildlife. It's amazing how the active VR can really stabilize the image with a full 300mm in action. The lens is a little bit heavy, but what can you...

Consumer review by: paul (

cool enough and maybe a little more than


Good lens and good value. And definitely has good photographic potential. But doesn't fit my rather minimal tote-around camera bag. Too big, and a little heavy. Not to say you can get 70-300mm much smaller and lighter. Just not an ideal tote-around...

70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR NIKKOR Lens


Just and all around great addition for my D-60. Easy to use, right out of the box. So glad I made this purchase.
