Handheld telephoto shooting

Nikon’s VR II image stabilization

The AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED brings telephoto reach to hand-held shooting opportunities. Compact and lightweight, it’s a well-balanced walk-around lens for stills and HD videos. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 2.5 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture. You can even focus as close as 4.9-ft throughout the entire zoom range for fantastic close-up shots.

Exceptional image quality

Built on a legacy of NIKKOR excellence

Whether you shoot an FX- or DX-format camera, the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED captures exceptional photos and HD videos with edge-to-edge sharpness. Its specialized Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass produces clear, high-contrast images with minimal chromatic aberration. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides ultra-quiet, ultra-fast autofocusing with seamless manual focus override; and Internal Focus (IF) lets that focusing occur without the lens changing size, so you can maintain camera-subject working distance throughout the focus range.
*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when: FX-format compatible lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.

A wonderful lens that does so much for the cost. I've had many Nikons & lenses since 1957 and now use this great zoom lens with my D300 & D3 and find it to be a fantastic piece of glass and handles well. Great price & lightweight. July 30, 2010
Love this Lens I love this lens for outdoor shots. The AF is fine to me, I shoot birds in flight and get nice tight pictures inside 200. I know there are better lenses but at what price? For the money, I have been delighted with the lens and have made some great pictures inside with a flash on my D90. July 30, 2010
Very satisfied Have a 80-200 f/2.8 Nikkor that is quite sharp, but wanted something lighter plus more versatile for outdoor shooting and carrying around for extended periods. Torn between an off-brand that was lighter and about 1/3 the price, and this one. Camera dealer let me take both in front of the store, took several shots with both and viewed them on their large monitor. A noticeable difference in IQ! And I had no idea how much of a difference VR would make until then. Bought the Nikkor on the spot and have been very happy with it. It works well on both my F100 and D80. Dislikes: AF hunts at the long end, and zooming is not smooth over the range -- a bit sticky in spots. July 30, 2010
it's worth it My first obstacle for choosing a second lens was my wife =) Second obstacle was choosing a good lens within my given budget... so i won't cringe with regrets later. Long story short, after taking some shots, my wife (who didn't understand the need for second lens) was very impressed. pros • excellent zoom & photo quality • VR does make a difference con • this thing is lot bigger than i thought... it doesn't fit into my carrying bag while mounted July 30, 2010
Great Lens I was using a similar lens from another maker and was getting very poor results. I switched to Nikkor and solved my problem. The 70-300 VR lens performed flawlessly at the widest apperature available. I don't know why the other lens had a 4.5/5.6 aperature if it couldn't give satisfactory results. July 30, 2010
great value for the price I have had this lens for a couple of years and have found it to produce very good results. Great value for the price! July 30, 2010
Great lens I bought this lens prior to a trip to South Africa. For the price, it produces exceptional clarity and the VR works smoothly - and it's very versatile. Definitely a recommended product for someone you can't carry the large zooms or multiple lenses (you may still want an 18-55 or something). You'll be happy. July 30, 2010
Excellent Lens As I got older I found it less comfortable to carry heavy equipment but I didn't want to give up quality. For low light situations I do have the new 70-200 2.8, but for daylight situations such as sports and family the 70-300 is the lens of choice. I was really surprised at the sharpness of the lens at all focal lengths and I couldn't recommend it higher. July 30, 2010
This is truly a great lens! "Nikkor" says it all. The quality is superb. Its ease of handling is surprising when you consider the 70-300 range. It balances nicely on my D5000. July 30, 2010
Good Quality and Reasonable Price This lens with VR is excellent for zoom shots when using hand held, in reasonable weather conditions. However, a tripod is recommended when shotting between 200 and 300 mm. The quick fit lens hood is excellent and the lens fabric container is useful and convienent for equipment protection. Overall, a very good lens that can help in producing good quality images for a reasonable price. July 30, 2010
Fabulous lens for the price I was looking at the 70-200 F2.8 but could not justify the price for use on my D300 and D700. Granted, this lens won't be used indoors for any weddings, but outdoors, it hums and produces gorgeous images. I've only owned it for three weeks as I purchased it to photograph a Rolex GrandAm Racing event. I am so glad I purchased it! I was initially going to return it but it performed so well I'm keeping it. The sharpness, contrast, and zooming performance is really sweet. Not too heavy either which is a big plus when you are walking around a 1.8 mile circuit on the other side of the armco barrier and no way to get back to the main course. For flowers, and other objects I find the background blur (bokeh) just about perfect. On my D300 body with the battery grip the lens balances out very well plus I get the extra 1.5 factor which made this lens a 105-450mm and brought me very close to the automobiles even though I had media access and was close enough! On the D700 it's a straight 70-300 and that works great whenever I want to shoot portraits or flowers. Close focusing distance could be a tad better but the clarity, sharpness, and contrast offset this very minor drawback. I'm thrilled with the lens and feel it is a great investment. Can't beat the price either when compared to other more popular zooms. July 30, 2010
best fx telephoto for the price Just recently purchased this lense and I love it. Does everything it's supposed to and is a perfect addition to my d5100. Doesn't exactly replace my 50mm 1.8 but it's not meant to. Produces sharp crisp images even at full zoom with minimal quality loss overall plus the added crop factor on DX is a bonus for me. Fast quiet focus and VR works as it should. Glad I picked up this lense. I would recommend it to any hobbyist or beginner like myself. March 2, 2014
Grandes recursos em uma embalagem pequena! Ótimo produto, qualidade perfeita! Sempre tive curiosidade em experimentar uma Nikon, quando consegui eu me apaixonei, o produto é simplesmente perfeito! April 7, 2014
Otima Tele objetiva A tempos que ando a namorar essa lente compre-a na semana passada e valeu cada centavo investido tem uma qualidade de imagem nota 10 combina perfeitamente com a minha D600 ! October 23, 2013
qualidade adorei essa lente muito rápida alta qualidade, robusta. June 23, 2013
EXCELENTE ES UN EXCELENTE OBJETIVO. TIENE MUY BUENAS PRESTACIONES. TENGO EN REALIDAD POCO TIEMPO QUE COMPRE ESTE OBJETIVO Y ESTOY COMPLETAMENTE SATISFECHO CON SU DESEMPEÑO, HE REALIZO MUY BUENAS FOTOGRAFIAS DE ACCION, ADEMAS DE QUE NO TENGO QUE ACERCARME DEMASIADO A LO QUE DESEO FOTOGRAFIAR. VALIO MUCHO LA PENA LA COMPRA Y RECOMIENDO AMPLIAMENTE ETE OBJETIVO. November 22, 2012
AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED really close up shots u will get sharp detail with amazing depth of field to work with in aperture priority. Landscape, wildlife, and close up, this lens March 20, 2014
Excellent and it works for D5000 I use D5000 and I'm satisfied with this 300mm. Manual/Automatic, Vibration Reduction, automatic settings working good, is not the fastest focus speed but nice and enough. Beautiful photos can be gotten depending scene, objects or illumination conditions but his lens is excellent choice for general Zoom photos, the f/4.5 is not enough for low light conditions, but for most common situations and outdoors this is really a good zoom with nice price. January 10, 2014
'Get it Tuned' for best output Its good value for money. However, make sure that there are no 'back focus' problems. In that case it wouldn't give the best output. There is a marked improvement in focusing and image sharpness after I fine tuned my Nikon D7000 for this lens. Sharpness reduces beyond 200mm. September 14, 2013
Great Value as a lighter weight FX/DX travel zoom This particular Nikor Zoom was purchased as a lighter weight VR Zoom as an alternative to my 3.4 lb Nikor 80mm-400mm VR for traveling to Japan and Greece, where I needed a portable and fast focusing 450mm VR end range for shooting harbor and port features from the decks of ships arriving in places like Santorini, Greece and many other lanscape subjects.The performance, handling, and cost are in balance in making this lens a good balance of function and price. The photo results rate a very good to excellent when used on the D90, D300s, D7000, D7100, and even the D600 that I currently use. The D90 has been replaced by the new D7100 for use with my D7000/D7100 as my preferred travel DSLR bodies. I have used this lens on the D600 with very satisfacory results in producing excellent 16-20 and 18-24 prints. I have recently purchased the new Nikor 70mm-200mm VR F4 to supplement the 70mm-300mm VR lens in looking for a lens with noticable optical quality improvement, NIC Coatings, and the newer VR3 system for maritime and landscape photography. However, the optical range of the 70mm-300mm VR on a DX DSLR of 105mm-450mm is very useful for my kind of work. I use this with an excellent Nikor DX 10mm-24mm wide angle zoom, an excellent Nikor 16mmm-85mm VR Zoom, and a Nikor 50G F1.8 as my travel kit with a D7000 and a D7100 or a D7000 and a smaller Coolpix 7000 for back-up and low-key night street photography. The 70mm-300mm VR is a excellent value that delivers very good-excellent results at one third of the cost of the new excellent Nikor 70-200mm VR F4 lens and one fourth to one fifth the cost of the Nikor Pro-Quality 70-200mm VR F2.8 Telephoto Zoom. These alternative Nikor VR Telephoto Zooms I own are a lot lighter, less expensive and get greater usage as a result compared to my heavy but excellent 3.4 lbs Nikor 80mm-400mm VR Zoom. I highly recommend this 70mm-300mm VR if cost, travel weight, and range are important. I believe that the next level of lens choice consideration in cost, weight, optical performance and value to consider for use on a D7100 or D600 with the greater 24 pixel sensors, is the Nikor 70mm-200mm VR F4 zoom lens or go for the Nikor 70mm-200mm F2.8 VR Pro lens if low light, bokeh are worth the trade-off in weight over the lighter travel weight and hand-held qualities of the 70-300mm VR or the 70-200mm F4 VR3 Nikor Zooms. July 10, 2013
Great mid priced zoom The 70-300 VR is a very good zoom lens for the money. It is very sharp from 70-200....and begins to lose sharpness after that point. Shots at 300mm are still usable, but noticeably not as sharp. This lens is great to match up with the 16-85 VR zoom for travel purposes. Lens focuses quickly and accurately. No lens creep that I have noticed. This may not be a 'legendary' performer like the 70-200 f2.8.....but it is a very capable, modestly priced zoom....that performs very well in the 70-200 range for 1/4 of the money. The 200-300 range, while a bit softer, is just a 'bonus' in terms of flexibility. November 29, 2012
Great on the move! I borrowed once this lens and a D5000 from my wife, and since then I tend to leave at home heavier equipment for nature photography during long hikes. Although the lens is suitable for a FX camera, it shines on a DX up to 200mm, then looses a bit of sharpness, but still yields good results at 300mm (9x magnification on a DX). The shots are at par with the ones obtained with a D300 and a 80-400mm, which costs 3 times more, focuses much slowly and is heavier. Such a lens with a light camera should be taken very seriously, as it makes the difference to get to the right spot, in particular when there is a risk of damaging much more expensive equipment (ever tried to carry a 600mm f4 with the appropriate tripod and head through a damp?) October 24, 2012
Good for the price I bought this lens b/c I can't afford the 70-200, plus it has the extra 100mm on it and it's MUCH smaller and lighter. It's a GOOD lens, but it's not a GREAT lens. Basically, you get what you pay for. I'm overall happy with it but I wish I could afford the 70-200, which is just magical. August 17, 2012
Great lightweight, high powered zoom lens for the serious hobbiest.... I have had this lens for about two years now. Granted, it is not nearly as sharp as the higher end 70-200s...but comparing them is like comparing Porsche to Humvee. The lens is extremely light, fairly robust and has an accurate focus. On my D300s it preforms without fail. I bought this lens to take on back country backpacking trips and for basic wild life shots. For what it is (a mid range consumer lens) it is sharp, handles light fairly well within its F range and doesn't compound camera noise like a lot of zoom lenses do. Don't buy this lens if you are looking for a National Geographic lens. It is not a Pro lens. Do buy this lens if you are looking for an affordable, lightweight, dependable lens. A must for any photographer.... June 7, 2012
Very nice lens I continue to be surprised with how well this lens does. Very pleased with how sharp it is. The VR is great. At times I have found 300mm to be a bit shorter than I had hoped, maybe Nikon will update the 80-400 (for a reasonable price), I could use the extra range. I have several other lenses that feel much more solid than this one, but so far it has held up to a lot of use. March 7, 2012
Good lens at twice the price Lens has proven to be sharp and quick focusing. Some center softness, but not excessive. Vibration control is amazing and welcome at the longer focal lengths. Would not hesitate to purchase again. In fact the reason I chose Nikon over the other big brand was the lens costs on comparable products. Good job Nikon on producing an affordable ultimately usable lens! November 7, 2011
re-discovered how great this lens is I took out my 70-300 VR to take shots with my D7000 of our first varsity tennis match of the season. I was blown away by the color, contrast, and sharpness (except at 220-300mm). But even if it's clearly soft at the farther range, at least I will still get reasonable shots that the point-and-shoot crowd can appreciate. I was ready to sell this lens to replace it with the FAR heavier and costlier 70-200 vrII, but I'm coming to realize that other than losing some of the improved low-light shooting and bokeh, this 70-300 VR compares extremely well with the 70-200 VRII with the GIGANTIC advantage of portability. There is practically no meaningful bokeh with the 70-300 since everything is in focus all the time with the small apertures you have to use, it might end up being the only reason I end up getting a faster lens. truly an amazing lens for it's consumer (non-pro) designation. the low weight and low price is simply amazing too, considering the picture quality it is capable of producing. September 2, 2011
Nice lens!!! This is a very nice lens for its price. I have used this lens with my Nikon D5100 and good some amazing shots. This lens is very good for taking pictures in bright/ decent light conditions. The picture quality is not very appealing in the low light conditions. This is also a very heavy lens, which makes it a little annoying sometimes, especially if you have to walk/carry it for a long time. The image stabilization feature is AWESOME and the auto-focus is indeed very quick and impressive. I would recommend a tripod when using this lens, especially when you are at higher focal lengths (between 200 and 300 mm). August 29, 2011
Fast,Sharp & Versatile. I carry 2 Nikon cameras,both DSLR`s.D7000 w/20mm nikkor & D90 w/AF-S 70-300mm IF-ED zoom.The zoom is a new purchase for me,so after more than 40 years as a Nikon Owner I have to say this is the best zoom lens I have used for my Street Photography.It`s sharp & fast to focus even for these 72 year old hands.This is a lens that is married to my D90.PS:Both my Nikons are fitted with extra Battery Packs & the weight never bothers me.I graduated from Tri-X High School so I Shoot everything at ISO 400 & Work all my Photos in NX2.Thank You Nikon,I`ll See You on the Streets of New York. June 7, 2011
Can't beat it for the price I have this lens and use it quite often. I got a chuckle from a lot of the posters who said they couldn't get it to focus correctly. That screams user error to me. There are a lot of focus setting you can do with the camera body to change how the lens will focus. I am giving it 4 stars simply because I would like it to be faster... that's why I will be upgrading the 70-200 2.8 VRII. I will still keep this lens as for outdoor shots in good light and when I need that extra 100mm it does a great job. I just want something for indoor action and this lens will fall short a little in that area. The lens is light and mostly plastic. That's why the price is also as low as it is. For $400-$500, you really can't beat the quality and results you get from it. I was worried about using it to the max at 300mm and having no tripod, but the VRII does a great job and I don't have issues. If people are not getting good results with this lens, it has to do with their ability to take pictures. A lot of people will get a dSLR and expect amazing pictures, but it takes a lot of learning about how a camera like this works and how to maximize the potential you have in your equipment.

Answer: 
While the Nikon D60 does not have a built-in focus drive motor, it CAN autofocus with lenses that have their own drive motor (AF-S and AF-I lenses). Because this is an AF-S lens, it will autofocus with your D60.

Answer: 
Yes, it will autofocus on the D60. This lens is an 'AF-S" lens which means it has a built-in 'Silent wave motor). This means it has its own internal autofocusing motor, and it will autofocus on all Nikon DSLRs. All AF-S lenses focus extremely fast and accurately.

Answer: 
The best lenses are the ones you can afford and the ones that suit your needs. No point in buying a 600mm if you want to do portraits, likewise no point in buying a macro if you want to do landscape. It would if you pointed out what you want to do and what your budget is.
