Key Features

Super-fast telephoto AF-S lens with Vibration Reduction (VR) and Nano Crystal Coat.

Nikon Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.

Internal Focusing (IF) design for smoother focusing.

Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements effectively compensate for magnification and virtually eliminate chromatic aberration. Meniscus protective glass element overcomes internal reflections from digital imaging sensor.

Focus preset function instantly recalls a preset focal point.

Fully compatible with Nikon TC-14E II, TC-17E II and TC-20E II (III) Teleconverters

Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful super-quiet operation.

VR on/off mode available.

Exceptionally high optical performance; compatible with both 35mm and digital SLR models.

Focus mode switch enables quick response to changing situations with quick-switching between M/A (Manual-Priority Autofocus) and M (Manual focus) modes. AF operation switch enables easy selection of settings.

Focus limiter switch limits AF-servo movement to a selected shooting distance range.

My Favorite Lens I have over 10 pieces of Nikkor Glass and this is my favorite. The images are stunning and focus is very fast, almost as fast as my 200 F2. I agree with the other poster..if you can only get 1 pro telephoto, get this one. Works well with teleconvertors to get the extra reach if you need it. August 1, 2010
Great Lens NIKKOR AF-S 300mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR is an absolute performer, extremly sharp at 2.8 and has a nice bokeh at wide open and works very well with the AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E II July 31, 2010
I use it for a wide range of applications. As a serious amateur I like to mix my photography up from time to time and I wanted a lens that would lend itself well to a wide range of applications. When I purchased this one I had in mind to use it primarily for wildlife but soon found it to be extremely versatile in so many other applications. I use it for close-up, portrait, landscape, sports and wildlife and the fast focus, sharpness, and image quality are phenomenal. July 30, 2010
300mm f2.8 If you can buy just 1 telephoto, this is the one. Portraits will stun you, perfect for field sports, racing, indoors, outdoors, it is the King! Use one and you will NEVER give it back. It's big, heavy, expensive and probably my favorite lens. Does so much, just try it for portraits, you will be blown away. That poorly lit sports field is no match for the 300 on a D3. Can't say enough about it. One of the best lenses in Nikon's stable. July 30, 2010
Good overall lens Very good lens for the price. Not the highest quality but still very good April 14, 2011
Poor connections My lens seems to have a problem with the electrical connections between the lens and camera - I know it's the lens since the problems exist when using this particular lens with other camera bodies - and I have no issues when using other Nikkor lenses - I've had the lens into service a couple of times - all to no avail. When it happens - I lose the AF feature. This lens is a lemon in my opinion - or at least the one I have is. July 30, 2010

Answer: 
This AF-S VR NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G IF-ED is listed as an archived product. The best thing that you could do is to look through the current list of Nikkor lenses here to see if you find one that meets your needs.
