Love this lens The title sums this lens up well. I love this lens, and a good upgrade from the 18-55mm kit lens. Although, I wish I could have bought the VR version, I am completely happy without it. My images generally turn out great even without it. I use this on my D3100, and even though I have to manually focus(which I did even with my kit lens) it works perfectly fine, where some people online were saying it doesn't work well with my camera model. Over all, it's amazing for it's price and zoom range. November 25, 2012
Excellent amateur lens!! This lens is a bargain!! I purchased mine earlier this year and I am very happy I did. I would have liked to have the more macho VR version, but at the time I simply could not afford it. Either way, I am pleased with this Nikon product. I shot some fairly low light portraits with it and they came out STUNNING!! The images were sharp and had fantastic blur in the background. Luckily I have motors in my camera so I can auto focus. This lens is a bit slow, but if you are in the right situation the lens will deliver. I highly recommend this lens for an enthusiast who shoots wild life or sports and is on a budget. I have a feeling you will be pleased with this product. August 16, 2012
Great zoom lens for sports photography I have used this lens for nearly 10 years for many purposes and find that it is just terrific for sports events due to its sharpness even at the maximum zoom setting. August 18, 2011
Awesome! I can get 300mm pics with no Blurr with the VR. Pin point accuracy on the Focus! No complaints! I love the lens! ALSO! takes pretty nice macro shots fully extended. August 1, 2011
Excellent performance despite the cheap price. First of all it does not have VR and won't auto focus on D3100. For that there is AF-S 55-300 VR at almost 3 times the price of this one (online). This is also one of he two cheapest priced lens in the entire Nikon catalog. So I was hesitant if it is worth buying. It is worth if you are looking for a decent telephoto zoom, won't mind manual focusing, and usually taking pictures during the day. Picture quality is sharp (better than I expected), way better than your 10x point & shoot or SLR looking super zoom. Almost like your kit zoom. It is light so not much of a problem to carry. If you want to shoot in the low light you need 300 f/2.8. Just look at that size and price and if you earn money from photography then you don't need this one. But even then considering the size and price you can keep this one as spare when you are on vacation. I liked this one more than I expected. May 4, 2011

Answer: 
The AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G lens can be used on the Nikon1 AW1 with the addition of the optional FT-1 Mount Adapter, but autofocus would not be available. In addition, this configuration would not be waterproof, shockproof, or freezeproof.

For waterproof, shockproof, and freezeproof performance use 1NIKKOR all-weather lenses. The 1NIKKOR all-weather lenses are the 1NIKKOR AW 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 lens and the 1NIKKOR AW 10mm f/2.8 lens.

The addition of an auto focus motor to a lens increases the cost. The closet in price you will get is the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR. This will autofocus with your D3000.

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D3200 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Answer: 
There are no teleconverters that are compatible with this lens. The reason is because the back element on this lens moves too far and will hit the front element of the teleconverter.

Hope this helps.

Answer: 
The AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G lens will not autofocus on the Nikon D3100 but is otherwise compatible. For lenses that will autofocus look for those with AF-S designation, like the AF-S-VR-Zoom-Nikkor-70-300mm Lens.

Yes, the AF 70-300 4/5.6G zoom lens not only works with the D90, but it works very, VERY well! That's all functions, including ambient and flash metering, autofocusing in all modes, DOF preview...everything! And it is particularly well balanced on a D90, permitting low shutter speed hand held shooting without the need for VR.

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D3100 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

You may want to get the AF-S version of this lens.

Answer: 
The D40 needs AF-S lenses to autofocus. But you can use an AF NIKKOR lens, however you will have to manually focus the lens. To read more about the differences between AF and AF-S lenses, check out this article: http://www.nikonusa.com/Learn-And-E...

Answer: 
It will work but will not autofocus. You need lenses designated AF-S in order to autofocus. The D40 does not have a built in motor for focusing.
