Nikon 70-300mm f4-5.6G Lens Review

“High Quality & easy to use”

I have used this lens for one year now and it has performed flawlessly. I have probably used it for 4-5k shots of my over 13,000 shots in my Nikon D70. It is lightweight and easy to wear on the camera for hours and hours without fatigue. I would agree with other reviewers that low light scenarios require more time to focus. This lense is great for portraits of active children. You can sit back and wait for good shots and then get a fast closeup with this lens. I have also used it at football games and gotten some great action shots. Although it is not silent when focusing, I don’t notice it nor do any subjects usually hear it. The sound can be useful as you mini-depress the shutter so you know if the lens is getting ready if you happen to be looking away from the viewfinder. For the money, it works fantastically.

I also use a polarizer filter on this lens and would recommend the same to you.

Just added the SB-600 Nikon flash and it helps with this lens considerably. It really helps a lot and I would recommend it too.
