Nikon 70-300mm VR Review

“Great value for the amateur and semi-professional”

nikon nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6G

So you are looking for a good lens? You want something that will take great pictures, but you don’t want to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars? Well this is the lens for you! I have used several 70-200, 70-255 and 70-300 mm lenses in stores which considering them and the answer is simple: You can’t beat a Nikkor lens.

This lens has excellent clarity and optics. I am the director of the Nicholas Copernicus Observatory at the University of Miami and I have extensive expierence in optics. I can tell you, without a doubt, that you wont find a better lens than this for twice the price. I have only bought Nikon cameras and lenses, but I get plenty of chances to use other ones at the observatory as different people bring their equipment to learn how to use it better. No matter how many cameras I use, I still recommend Nikon above all else.

I presently use this lens with a Nikon D70s camera.

There is a more expensive version available, the Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6D AF Nikkor SLR Camera Lens, which has superior optics. I highly recomend that lens if you are a professional who needs perfect clarity on sunny days for nature photography at the 300mm length. If you are an amateur or even a semi-professional, if you use this in lower light, or if you are using the shorter length most of the time, save the $200 price difference and save it toward another lens!
