The Nikon 70-300 F/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens is a great choice for sports, wildlife, portraiture, or any distant subject. The wide zoom range (4.3x) goes from portrait to full telephoto to get you close to your subject. Enhanced Vibration Reduction (VRII) technology prevents camera shake, and Nikon’s most advanced materials and lens designs such as Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) and VRII combine in a lens for full frame or APS-C (DX) cameras.

Beyond the lens' incredible optical versatility is the benefit of Enhanced VR II Vibration Reduction -- an innovation that makes it possible to take substantially sharper handheld pictures at slower shutter speeds than would otherwise be possible. This provides the distinct advantage of being able to shoot more effectively in a much broader variety of challenging conditions. With the new Nikon VR II advantage, users can take pictures at shutter speeds as many as 4 stops slower* than they ordinarily could shoot without the image degrading blur associated with camera shake at slow shutter speeds. Nikon's advanced VR technology further enhances picture taking potential with a choice of two modes to match most shooting conditions. VR Normal Mode primarily compensates for camera shake, and includes automatic panning detection, as well as automatic tripod detection. VR Active Mode effectively compensates for vibration in situations where it is more pronounced and more frequent, such as when shooting from a moving vehicle.

To further ensure outstanding optical performance, the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor features two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements and three complex aspherical lens elements that provide for higher resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion. The lens also features Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM), which combines fast and precise autofocusing with super-quiet operation, as well as Internal Focusing (IF) construction that allows the lens to focus without changing its external size, improving balance and handling characteristics.

    We upgraded from the 55-200mm F/4.5-5.6 to this one and what a huge difference it has made. The images are crisper, the focus is better and our pictures look better then ever. I must have zoom lens.

          Even though this lens came as part of a package deal, I would have bought it separately. It has a nice solid feel, the focus ring is just right, not too easy to turn past your focus. The only thing I would like is a smaller aperture when full out but that would have been a few hundred more.

              Since becoming a senior citizen it has become increasingly difficult to hand hold even a normal lens and get sharp shots. I shoot a lot of wildlife and they often do not give you time to set up a tripod. This lens not only gives me the reach I need but I am able to hand hold and get shots I have not been able to do in years. I can not say enough about the VR II Technology especially on a longer zoom like this. The lens has been trouble free and has given me great, sharp pictures. I can not find anything bad to say about it.
