Bill, Newcastle Keen amateur upgrading from

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It looks impressive and when I have learned to use it I sure it will be great
Bad points:
The things I hate about this product are first the absence of a proper lens cap. It is supplied with a type of cloth bag. Why I do not know. It's about time Nikon sorted this. Ordered a Don Zeck cap from the USA which shouldn't be necessary.

Second I would like to be able to use a protective filter at the front when i want but no filter screw.

The lens is heavy but that's the price you pay for glass.

Charley, Leicester Birdwatcher

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Crystal sharp pictures, stunning contrast, lightning autofocus, coupled with superb vibration reduction just takes your breath away. i wish I'd taken the plunge and bought one years ago!
Bad points:
There aren't any. It's heavy and expensive, but with all that glass I think that's unavoidable.

Manufacturer's Description

The Nikon 300mm f2.8 G ED VR II AF-S Nikkor Lens is a professional, fast aperture, super-telephoto lens that is perfect for wildlife and sports photographers. This version incorporates Nikon’s second generation Vibration Reduction (VR) system for outstandingly sharp images, even under low light conditions. The optics feature Nano Crystal coatings and three ED (Extra low Dispersion) glass elements to provide superb edge-to-edge sharpness and a crisp image with good contrast. The Silent Wave motor ensures focussing is fast and accurate but incredibly quiet – an essential quality when photographing wildlife that could be easily startled by the whirring of an auto-focus motor. In keeping with the professional specifications, the Nikon 300mm f2.8 G ED VR II AF-S Nikkor Lens has a weather sealed magnesium body that will meet the challenges that professional photography requires.
