Pros: Versatile, addictive, weight, sharpness.

Cons: Noticeable drop in sharpness, combined with the Nikon TC-14E III in distances greater than 9m.

Opinion: This lens is simply my favorite of all those I have used. It's not the best, but it's so convenient to use! I use it relentlessly since its purchase. On FX, it allows portrait and street events for details. On DX, it allows the sport and the animal. On DX + TC-14E III, it covers the birds, although a little short and it loses 1 Diaph. Regarding the sharpness, I would say that it depends on several factors. From 1m40 to 3m, in proxy mode, with or without TC-14E III, on FX or DX, it's "Razor Sharp". And it's amazing to be able to photograph flying insects with such ease. (see my gallery) From 3m to 9m, according to my many tests, it is excellent, but especially without the TC-14E III, because with, the loss of sharpness is in my opinion quite noticeable. From 9m to 25m (but this is only my experience in the field), it becomes more average, because I think the image is significantly degraded by the multiplier. At the infinite, even a castle in clear weather for example, with multiplier, I would be much more critical on the quality of the image rendered. Of course, an AF setting is to consider and can really make the difference. (for me: D500 + 300PF + TC -1.4 = +6 AF). In comparison, I think that the AF adjustment of the Sigma by the dock is much more interesting, because it takes into account at least 4 key distances (16 for a zoom). Regarding the stabilizer, I find it very effective until 1/200. But it depends on each photographer and his ability not to add unnecessary shaking. ;) In conclusion, I would say that I find it EXTRAORDINARY. However, if you want to photograph small birds, make sure you have an approach as discreet as possible, because mounted on DX with multiplier X1.4, it gives 630mm, fully usable freehand ... but it is a bit short :(

Pros: Weight

Cons: Bit of a mixed bag with converters

Opinion: Recently purchased this lens as a welcome addition to my much heavier 300mm F/2.8 VR. I love this lens on either an APS-C or a fullframe camera. It's so much fun carrying a 300mm lens that weighs about the same as a 24-70mm F/2.8. IQ is great when stopped down a bit. When shooting wide open there is little DOF to work with. The 300mm seems to handle the 1.4 TC pretty well. When making use of the limiter there is not muching slowing down on the AF-speed. My 300mm lens seems to do best wide open (F/6.7) when using the 1.7 TC. In really low light situations I will still be using the much faster 300mm F/2.8 lens, but this beauty comes to use in almost every other situation.

Pros: Weight, clutter. Stabilizer

Cons: Fresnel lens, shoddy materials, sharpness

Opinion: Like many others, I was immediately tempted by the weight and footprint of the 300 PF, I bought it and kept it for about a year, but unlike many others I never deluded myself about its performance. I come from another generation and please, believe me, forty years ago only to hear a Fresnel lens scratched to blood! Today the optics have moved on and the adjustments of an optical scheme are also made electronically, but always a Fresnel is. Reading other reviews I see that some optimist argues that this lens would have little to envy to the 300 f 2.8, this certainly is disturbing and suggests that these gentlemen have visus problems, or have never picked up an f 2.8. The 300 Fresnel is an honest, light, far-fetched lens (it's a plastic, and this I think is undeniable), not bulky, equipped with excellent VR, and honest performance, nothing more. At the level of sharpness the 300 AFS f 4 that preceded it (the one with the engine af led to suicide...) the asphalt brutally effortlessly, the comparison is embarrassing. I do not think I offend anyone by calling it a saving optics, on the other hand a plastic with Frenel can not be defined differently (and the same applies to the new 500 PF). Too bad that the savings only made Nikon, because the current price is absolutely out of measure for the services returned. Shopping tips: If you really want a 300 with the highest performance look for the previous model, you find it new under a thousand euros and that will make you gasp. Or do as me, sacrifice a kidney and bet to the maximum, that is to say 300 f 2.8 VR2

Pros: Sharpness, weight, size, speed and precise

Cons: Maybe the blurred is a little nervous (especially with tc1.4) and the yield in the backlight but just hold it in your hand to forget everything. Cost a little excessive.

Opinion: When I first picked it up without the lampshade it seemed like a joke. Very light and very small. For travel and excursions is ideal. Pairing it with tc 1.4 and the D500 you carry around everywhere (I sometimes carry it around when I let the dog out??) a focal point of 600mm equivalent and also stabilized. It has some webbing but remains optically very good smooth and very good with the tc1.4. Positive note is the minimum distance of maf which makes it an "almost" macro. A must have for naturalistic photography with Nikon.

Pros: Sharp

Cons: Weight

Opinion: I do the opposite bastian .... I bought this telephoto lens after careful reflection given its cost. Purchase to have him like me on the excursions saw his featherweight, but in the end and without taking shots overnight he started to " ciarloccare ". I've never had a such thing happen to me with telephoto lenses. This has led me to say that the lightness for telephoto lenses of this magnitude and higher is a handicap. Lightness leads to having a high fragility on this does not rain, in my way of seeing. It's not a 1 kg less that makes it easy for you to hike.
