The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a sharp, compact walkaround lens, but it shows quite a lot of distortion throughout its zoom range.

  • +

    Sharp throughout zoom range. 10.7x zoom ratio. Optical stabilization. Relatively compact.

  • -

    Loads of distortion. Soft edges at maximum aperture.

Overall the performance of this lens is very solid indeed: Nikon describes it as “the ideal walkabout lens”, adding that it offers “maximum flexibility with minimum kit”, and that claim definitely stands good.

    Excellent all in one lens

Nikon has answered the call of FX (full-frame) camera users to provide a lens comparable to their ultra-popular NIKKOR AF-S 18–200mm f/3.5–5.6G VR II DX-format lens with their new AF-S 28–300mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR.

    Great focal range in one lens

If you can have just one lens,this is it!! Ken Rockwell said this lens is sharp through out its entire zoom range and he was right! I do a lot of landscape shots and this lens can go pretty wide at 28mm,then you can zoom big time to capture things that look a long way away and bring them in...

    Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality

Moving from a Nikon D70s, DX format camera, to a Nikon D750 FX body, I needed a FX lens. I had a 18-70 (27-105 in FX terms) and a 70-300 (FX compatible), so I wanted to cover that range. With the D750 low light sensitivity, and this lens' VR feature, you can capture almost anything you would want.

I have had this lens a little less than a month. It is a touch heavy but it takes fabulous pictures. I highly recommend it.

Full-frame zoom lens replaced my Nikon DX lens of similar zoom and speed. It's a wonderful lens and there isn't the barrel creep of the DX model.

I bought this lens for travel. Because of its broad zoom range it will probably be the only one I have to take with me. I will save a lot on weight, and bulk, not to mention security issues; I won't have to worry about protecting several thousand dollars worth of glass.

    Strong Construction, Broad Zoom Range, Nice Bokeh, Consistent Output, Good For Closeups, Rugged, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Easily Interchangeable

Good all round lens, I had the 18-200mm on my d7000 it is the only lens I use, and for my d800e the 28-300 zoom lens will probably be my walk around lens, but for portraits and really fine photography I will use the Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 lens.

  • +

    I recently bought a Nikon d800e, brilliant, but needed fx lenses, first lens I bought was a f/2.8 105mm again brilliant, but needed a zoom, I have the 18-200mm dx zoom for my d7000 again a wonderful lens, I bought the 28-300mm from Jessops, (I got £70 back from Nikon thru their Christmas money back...

  • -

    I am still learning about this lens, It's not quite as sharp as I would have hoped, but this may be my fault I was not using a tripod and at 300mm you had better have a steady hand even with VR.

Well, finally, after several months of sleepless nights, and reading countless reviews online, wondering if I should purchase the 28-300 lens for my built-like-a-tank D300, I finally took the plunge a few weeks ago. However, I had to return my first purchase because it had a focus problem.
