Nikon 300mm f/4 ED-IF AF-S

I purchased this lens, refurbished by Nikon, and saved a couple of hundred dollars over a brand new one. I added the VIP extended warranty for a one year warranty. The lens arrived quickly and is in PERFECT condition. You would never know that this lens is refurbished by looking at it/using it!!! I am extremely pleased with my purchase. I've used the lens twice already for indoor/low-light photos at my daughter's piano recital, and it is sharp and has no problems acquiring focus on my D600!

Great Deals

I have, in the past, bought used equipment from Adorama and found their ratings of their used equipment is just as described or better. I feel very confident in purchasing used equipment from Adorama. This lens came packaged very well for the sometime, lately, rough handling of the delivery services. WELL DONE Adorama.

Sharp!

By

This lens is sharp. Even with a 1.4 teleconverter attached, it is reasonably sharp. F/4 gives a stop or stop and a half over most of the zoom lenses out there, as well. For dedicated telephoto work, like wildlife photography, this lens is the best in the under $1500 category by a mile.

Great lens

By

from Colorado  -  Photo Enthusiast

I needed a high quality longer lens for wildlife shots. By itself, this lens is super sharp, has quick autofocus, and is relatively inexpensive compared to other lenses I was considering. Pairing this lens with a 1.7 teleconverter gets me out to 500mm when I need it, and it is still pretty darn sharp. It doesn't have the vibration reduction technology, but I typically use high enough shutter speeds that the lack of VR doesn't really matter. This lens is great, and paired with a teleconverter, is a great way to get a long lens in the 500mm range without breaking the bank. And the combo is (relatively) light for 500mm reach, letting me hand hold it most of the time.

Great lens, especially for the money

Wild life photography Light weight compared to the f2.8 If available, VR would make this even better

Amazingly sharp 300mm for bargain price

By

from Athol, MA  -  Pro Photographer

I primarily shoot wildlife, birds to be specific. I stepped up from a Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 with a 1.4tc that gave me very good results. The Nikon blows it away in sharpness and detail on my D7100. Focus is very fast in good light, still produces excellent results even in overcast conditions. This is a stellar lens for wildlife and sports. It's not the lightest lens by far and dwarfs the 70-300 VR in size but worth the extra $$. I shoot handheld 90% of the time and don't miss VR at all since I'm usually shooting at 1/2000 or above to freeze action and get tack sharp images. I also have the Nikon TC14E-II attached to it to extend the focal lenght to 420mm. I would recommend this lens to anyone looking to shoot wildlife or sports you won't regret it.

Clear Photos

By

from Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am using this lens mainly with a Sigma 1.4X TC for wildlife photography. It gives nice, clear images. When not used with the Sigma TC, it is a fast focusing lens!!! The lack of Vibration Reduction technology does not seems to bother me at all!!! I think this is a good pick for the price.

Sharp lens

Replaced a Sigma 100-300 which wasn't very good on my D800. This lens is much sharper, even with a 1.4 teleconverter.

Tack Sharp

By

from Kaplan, La  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great lens!! I not a fan of zoom lens and have mostly prime lens in my bag and wanted to add a longer fixed focal lens. So, I picked up this lends and after well over a hundred images, I have to say it performs as what would be expected of a great Nikon lens.
