The AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED Telephoto Zoom Lens from Nikon is a high-performance telephoto zoom lens that has been designed to meet the demands of both digital and 35mm format SLR users. It offers a 4.3x zoom with a range of 70-300mm (equivalent 105-450mm on a DX Nikon D-SLR) and features ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that ensure superior optical performance. This lens incorporates Nikon's second-generation vibration reduction system (VR II) that allows flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to the equivalent extent of using a shutter speed that is four stops faster when compared with a conventional lens. The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and IF (Internal Focusing) ensure fast and quiet focusing action, and the nine-blade rounded diaphragm makes out-of-focus elements blend smoothly to produce natural-looking, harmonious backgrounds. 4 Stops of Vibration Reduction (VR II)Internal FocusingNon-Rotating Front Element67mm Filter Size Shop the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR Lens and view our extensive range of DSLR Lenses at competitive prices online at CameraPro Australia.

My best outdoor results, using a Nikon D3200 body, are with a Hoya Pro1 Digital Circular polarising filter and for indoor portraits, a Tiffen Pro-Mist.
The red jaguar: focal length 240 mm, f9 at 200s, hand held, on a moving ferry boat!
The crowd shot: focal length155 mm, f4.8 at 400s.
Locarno, Maggiore. Both unprocessed versions.
So I decided to try this one, and if I didn't like it I'd sell it on eBay and it would have cost me little. But it's staying. OK, when pixel-peeping at 1:1 images on the screen I'll admit it's not as sharp as the 24-70, but that's equal to looking at a 4x6 foot enlargement from a foot away! For realistic use, this lens delivers more than adequate sharpness in a manageable package.
I'm glad I chose to give it a try, and although technically it may only deserve 4 stars, I give it 5 when factoring in its size and price.
The Nikon VR lenses do offer a lot more scope for hand held shots and I first considered the 80-400mm lens but with reports of slow AF and a price of £1,100 plus I eventually went for the 70-300mm, much cheaper, lens with the hope that the sacrifice of 100mm could be made up by a bit of digital processing!!!! (When taking wild bird pictures the focal length never seems long enough!!!)
At less than £400 at Amazon the consistent 'good' quality, fast focus and VR convenience this proves to be value for money and one of the better performance/ price medium telephotos on the market.
My trial day, with a Nikon D300, at an equestrian event was very satisfying. In a large arena the full 300mm range was often necessary and by stopping down a couple of levels the results were crisp and sharp. I have noticed some quality fall off from 200mm upwards.
Subjectively, the overall performance is not quite as good as the 18-200mm VR, which will still remain attached to my camera most of the time.
However, unless you are prepared to spend several £,000 for the top quality Nikon Zooms this lens should satisfy most keen amateurs and semi-pros!
It's a really good partner with the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens , which will give you decent coverage from 16mm up to 300 in just two lenses- without too many quality sacrifices.
This is a really solid lens, and Amazon's price just happened to be competitive, so it was a no-brainer. Very happy with it- on an APS-C sensor, that 300mm is somewhere around 400+mm, so it's actually a good entry level wildlife lens, if you use it with a monopod or similar.
No hesitation over the five stars, here!
