Pros: Autofocus very fast, exceptional sharpness, covers several focal distances, VR of 2nd generation PERFECT, weight and small size...... I think it's enough and it's moving!

Cons: realization a little plastic, not pro but for the price range to which it belongs is there.

Opinion: Great Zoom lenses treated well there I do Air Show,football,nautical regattas from the edge, did not betray me, anyway to respond to someone who said that it is a dx is not true can also be used on the DX format and becomes a 450 mm very pushed on the Full Frame remains a 70/300, from 70 to 200 size like a razor loses a bit by kneading the image to the maximum focal AF very fast, low weight, handy quietly freehand even in low lighting situations, treated ED glass lenses that give high performance , the Vr brings the gain to 4 Stop, and much more, the price is affordable. Overall an optics to have in your kit. Happy owner if you want to take a look at the photos on my page taken At the Tricolor Arrows that I have been following for years are all or almost with the 70/300mm Vr2 f/4.5-5.6 G IF-ED.

Pros: Autofocus very fast, exceptional sharpness, covers several focal distances, VR of 2nd generation PERFECT, weight and small size...... But you want more.

Cons: For the product range has no defects. 10 and praise

Opinion: I say that I am an amateur (but one who constantly studies both the theory and his own equipment and the same third-party). I mount the 70-300 VR on both my D7200 and my Nikon F5. The color yield, sharpness and stabilization are perfect. I say, but what are you still looking for? Obviously compared to the 70-200 f/2.8 we agree that the gap is obvious but that is a SIGNOR TELE that maybe is valued on pro bodies. The 70-300 VR as it goes well on the D7200 I think it also goes great on the bodies D7xxx, D750 and D780. I also own the dx 55-300 and the AF 75-300 F4-5.6 and I have to say that while they are both excellent canvases, the autofocus of the 70-300 VR is much faster and more accurate than the 2 (the sharpness of the 2 canvases is cmq slightly lower) then the same mounted on the Nikon F5 has an autofocus even faster and more accurate (so this means that the speed and accuracy of the AF depends not only on the lens but also on the machine body. To put it another way I wouldn't call it an amateur's eye (maybe the 55-300 VR yes). It depends on what work you have to do or what needs you have (maybe a PROFESSIONAL will obviously opt for the 70-200 f2.8). A 160-180mm f/11-13 ISO 100 with exceptional sharpness (.nef 24mpx post-produced file in JPEG files and the same croppato to pc 100% sharp 2nd generation VR works great on both photos and video (also the AF on video is quite fast) I took close-ups to my daughter at 190mm at 1/100-125 sec. freehand and the images were still, coming down still obviously there is the move but I must say that I consider myself satisfied. Finally I would strongly recommend this lens to those who own a machine body from the D7xxx onwards (for the previous series type D3xxx or D5xxx I think the 55-300 VR is fine) also for the price from used very affordable, but what matters is that already mounted on a semi machine body gives some really qualitative images.

Pros: Good for full frame, low cost, good overall yield

Cons: none for the price range

Opinion: What about... I read reviews that I don't understand. 1. Also suitable for full frame! 2. Costs (used) 250 euros... 3. There are no other zooms in this price range with VR 4. ridiculous to compare it with optics that cost 5 times more 5. at 300 mm is quite sharp, just close to f/8 6. good bokeh, you just have to know how to use the distances between subject and background 7. I have it and I keep it!...

Pros: It is the only one among the telezooms for DX that can produce a pleasant deadlift

Cons: It's not professional, it's for amateurs.

Opinion: It's a DX lens for APS-C so it can't be professional and doesn't have the characteristics. Let's say that when used with criterion you can have a nice detachment effect between subject and background. Forget the AF's performance because it's cheap. As soon as the sun sets, forget about taking decent photos, the autofocus no longer works well and the optical defects are amplified.

Pros: Versatility, lightness in relation to the type of lens.

Cons: AF slow/which freezes often, unsatisfactory sharpness from 250 to 300mm, medium/low quality of materials.

Opinion: I have been using this 70-300 on Nikon D7100 for several years for motorsport photographs in racetracks. Overall it is not a bad product, however the very slow AF left me quite disappointed, it often hangs (2-3 seconds of stall) during focus and this is clearly a big problem if you shoot with moving subjects. The sharpest range ranges from 70 to 200mm, from 200 to 250 is decent and from 250 to 300 is not good. The materials used in my opinion are of medium/low quality, but still acceptable for the price range proposed at the time. The lens is not very bright, but this is normal given the maximum aperture of the diaphragm. Ultimately, I don't recommend this lens to those who shoot with moving subjects.
