This is my first prime telephoto lens. The difference between this lens and my older zoom lenses is really obvious. I am not well versed in all of the technical aspects of lenses, but I can tell you that the difference in sharpness and clarity is well worth every penny.

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.

From my experiences with all Nikon lenses, VR works sporadically at new, until camera is sent to Nikon repair depot for warranty repair. All Nikon lens must have some kind of switching mechanism to permanently disabling VR, that ensures next service repairs "billed to customer.

This Nikon 300mm f/4 lens is well suited for travel when you need a moderate "reach" with an Nikon FX camera body, or a "longer reach" with a Nikon DX camera body, while trying to keep the size and weight of your equipment at a minimum.

This is a great prime telephoto lens for those who can't afford the Nikon f2.8 300mm that costs more than four times as much. At f4 this one is only one stop slower but doesn't have VR (vibration reduction). That's why I gave it 4 stars (would have been 4.5 but that wasn't a choice).

    A bit heavy but not bad

Primarily purchased as a ‘with minimum compromise’ telephoto lens for wildlife photography, after years of being ultimately disappointed by the performance of 70-300 f.4-5.6-type lenses when compared to my prime wide-angle and medium-range telephoto lenses.

I've taken some stunning photos of birds with this lens. It would be great if the lens had a larger aperture, but then the price would shoot up. Make sure you have a good, solid tripod.
