The fast aperture AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II super telephoto lens delivers images with stunning edge-to-edge sharpness and clarity throughout the frame. Continued refinements and technologies such as Vibration Reduction (VR) II and optimized autofocus (AF) modes in the lens enhance functionality and improve performance for discerning FX and DX-format digital SLR photographers.

Whether photographing nature in the wild or at a line of scrimmage, the NIKKOR AF-S 300mm f/2.8 is an essential tool for photographers who require the highest level of image quality for publication and printing. The new 300mm lens effectively leverages a host of Nikon core technologies, including Nikon VR II image stabilization, which is specifically engineered for each lens model to maximum performance. VR II instills confidence by counteracting image blur introduced by camera shake and telephoto magnification, allowing users to shoot up to four shutter speed stops* slower than otherwise possible, overcoming many of the challenges of handheld shooting.

By: Garth
The exceptional specs for this lens are amply demonstrated in the field where it delivers flawless images in every respect. Resolution across the frame does justice to the D800's sensor, even at F/2.8. There's no CA while color saturation and contrast are superb. It's big and heavy but how could it be otherwise? Gets along well with the Nikon tele-extenders too. With the TC-20E II you'll have a fine 600 mm lens at F/5.6 for a modest additional cost. Scrape together the cash and start enjoying this superb unit. You will forget all about what you paid when you see your first image taken with this fantastic lens.
