The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4E PF ED VR is a light and compact telephoto prime lens, but you pay a premium for its size.

  • +

    Lightweight design. Sharp from edge to edge. Optically stabilized. 1:4 magnification.

  • -

    Pricey. Not compatible with some older cameras.

In the field, I found the weight of the lens was just right to carry around on photo treks; the focus ring falls right in place with my left hand, as does the control buttons on the left side.

This telephoto lens sports a reasonably fast maximum aperture of f/4 and all the usual features you might expect on a top of the range Nikon telephoto lens, such as Vibration Reduction, fast, silent focusing with full time manual override and Nikon’s Nano Crystal optical coatings to suppress...

This lightweight lens is remarkable. I detect no decrease in sharpness stopping down from f/4 to f/5.6, which I can say about very few lenses. It tracks AF well on my D800 and produces contrasty images edge-to-edge.

    Lightweight and small, takes TCs well, VR very impressive.

  • -

    I wish the AF was faster (without TCs) than it is. If you're used to the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, you'll be disappointed by the AF speed. I've tried the TC-14E III on the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II and it focuses much faster @ 280mm f/4 than the 300mm f/4E does.

I have had this lens for two months now and I have had no issues with either focus or VR performance. I am using it on a D7000 and have shot everything from the Blue Angels performance to distant wildlife to dark stage performances and the recent moon/venus astrology shot.
