Works Very Well So Far

By

from San Diego

It's heavier than my old 18-200 but I love this as my general lens. I haven't had it very long, but it focuses fast and creates sharp pictures on my new D750. So glad I chose this lens over the Nikon kit.

I love this lens !!

By

from Beverly Hills, Florida  -  Photo Enthusiast

I was apprehensive about buying it but Adorama's return policy is so good I said what the heck !I have used the lens quite a bit and love it ,very sharp through out the full range. It is heavy but not compared to carrying two or three lenses., I rated it 5 stars,not because it's the best lens in the world but because it's very very good at what it is supposed to be

Great general purpose lens!

Wide range of use lessens the number of lenses to carry.

Decent general purpose lens

By

from Ypsilanti, MI  -  Photo Enthusiast

I shoot a lot of photos of a high school marching band. I need to be able to quickly switch from a long zoom to a wide angle lens for group shots. I purchased this lens to allow me to do both types of shots without the need to constantly change lenses, and in that category it works great. The trade offs for me are that it is not an extremely fast lens, which I knew when I purchased it. As the marching season goes on, the days get shorter, and I find myself struggling to reach a balance between a high ISO and a fast enough shutter speed to keep the images sharp. Also of concern is the changing F-Stop as I zoom. If I am shooting wide angle, I have a maximum aperture of F/3.5, if I zoom in while keeping the image framed the same, the maximum aperture becomes F/5.6, a full stop and 1/2 loss of light transmission. The lens works well in bright light situations and as long as you can work with the slower apertures then this is a good lens for general purpose photography.

excellent 10x full frame zoom

By

from maryland  -  Photo Enthusiast

I checked this lens out for sharpness and it is sharper in the middle than the corners but moderately good all around. It is not a prim and you cannot expect it to perform as well according to sharpness. It is plenty sharp for regular pictures and is a good, albeit heavy, walk around lens. I wouldn't use it for portraits but it is actually very good for sports photography. Unless you have thousands of dollars for the big 400mm f2.8 prime sports lenses, this one will do you well. don't expect it to focus as well as say the Nikon 85mm f1.8 which can focus perfectly an amazing number of times.

Purchased a Nikon 28-300mm lens

By

from Fullerton, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Last year while in Italy, I took along 3 three lenses that I had taken on other European trips. Both trips it turn out the range I was shooting was from 20-280mm including a 1.4 teleconverter. I notice one photographer shooting with a Nikon 28-300mm lens. Upon my return home I reevaluated my lens gear. I concluded the 28-300mm lens could be used on 80% of my photos and the remainder for my wide angle shot. This lens is perfect for my need and cut down weight. My travels has taught me the limits as to what photo gear to travel with this lens is a must.

My one always on lens and available for 90% of my photos. Being a quality lens it is a little heavier.

A Real Workhorse

By

from Seattle, WA, USA

i have owned this lens for two years, and have literally traveled the world using it as my solo lens. I recently went to SE Asia, and took a variety of lenses with me but never took any of them out of my bag since my 28-300 covered all situations I encountered. The VR works very well, and the image quality is outstanding. I honestly cannot recommend this lens highly enough.

An excellent lens

By

from South Carolina, USA

There is little to say about this lens that others have not said however, It is simply great. As a traveling senior I know I am a target for thieves when I travel, that is just the way the world is now. So when I travel this lens is not only a great lens for photos but I do not have to change lenses often which means..... I keep my concentration on my surroundings as well as my shot. It does macro very well and even night shots it works well, it simply does everything that I want it to do. You couple this with Nikon Capture NX2 and it is about as good as it gets.

Questions about this item:

STEVEN G  Will this lens work on the new D750...looking for an all around lens that is also good for wildlife photography?
Andrew R  This lens should work with nearly any current Nikon DSLR.
Shopper  I am looking to improve on outside (lots of light) soccer photos the I am getting with my Nikon d300 with a 18-200 Nikor VR lens. Mainly, I want a crisper photos with more detail. That being said i am looking at the Nikon D750 with a Nikon 28-300 VR lens. Does that sound like a reasonable upgrade. Are the filters that come with the 28-300 lens high quality? thanks
ERIC F  Depending on your budget, I'd recommend either the Nikon 70-200 f4 (http://www.adorama.com/NK702004U.html) or the Nikon 70-300 f4.5-5.6 VR (http://www.adorama.com/NK70300AFVRU.html). Both will offer a big jump in sharpness and focus speed over either the 18-200 or 28-300 lenses. Both will also work on a full frame D750, as well.
