For the first time, it really is like having a bag of prime lenses along all of the time. The previous scenario was D7100 with 18-200 DX VR. That was an excellent setup and we have no complaints about the many great memories on the walls and hard drives -- except it fell short focal length wise a few times when planning ahead was not an option. The move up to FX (D610 and now D750) along with this 28-300 FX VR as the "always within reach camera" is a real game changer. Not hype. Been doing this a few decades. Wow. Why? Because if the lighting is there (and even when it's not...), within reasonable distances, you can shoot anything from the hip, fast or slow, near or far, with 95%+ results in most peoples eyes -- and the moment would have passed anyway if going for a lens was the only option. (The new low light FX sensors + Photoshop can make up for quite a bit in the lighting department the other 5% of the time for us type A's). We have 2 kids playing most indoor and outdoor sports. And lot's of family. Awesome impromptu portraits (which always come from 15 feet away, the way our minds store faces...) are seconds away, all the time. So is daylight stop action at any reasonable distance for available focal lengths with amazing clarity -- and always much better than my impromptu photos from 2 years ago using identical techniques. You still have to pay attention to depth of field to get what you want. I shoot in aperture priority mode most of the time with auto iso compensation on so I can get everything I want, all the time. I'm greedy that way!. This has proven to be as much of a step up as the DX to FX step. Both are very highly recommended. Can't say enough about the quality of the photos. I don't believe there will be another leap like D750 and this 28-300 FX VR lens for years to come. October 4, 2014
Great lens for a great camera I bought this lens when I upgraded from a D90 to the D800 a few months ago. I had been using the 70-300 lens on my D90, and loved it. I researched a lot before buying this lens, and had some concerns about distortion, but decided to buy it for the versatility -- and at the time I did not have a macro lens, so I thought this would be a good substitute. I have not been disappointed. I've taken several thousand shots with this lens, and have since acquired a macro (the 105mm micro Nikkor). Surprisingly, I actually prefer this lens for some macro shots -- particularly moving insects that will not stand still for me to get close with the 105mm lens. There was some adjustment with the FX camera, since the DX D90 multiplies the magnification by 1.5,and I was used to getting more magnification. However, with the D800's 36MP, I can crop and magnify much more than the DX multiplication factor with no loss of resolution at all. There is no more distortion at 28mm than I had at 18 mm on my D90's 18-105 kit lens (which is very little), and I find the pictures at 300 mm to be as sharp as I was getting at 300mm with the 70-300 zoom. The really great thing about this lens is its versatility. When I travel, I no longer have to carry a macro, a close zoom, and a long-range zoom. And I no longer have to change lenses, which reduces sensor dust and saves a tremendous amount of time (and risk of breaking or damaging a lens) changing lenses. I do like the 105mm macro, and it is fantastic for things that I can get close to; but its depth of field is not as good as the 28-300mm lens at the same aperture, and the 6x 300mm advantage is worth having when I don't want to, or can't, get close to the subject. I am sure that the 105mm lens is sharper, but I really cannot tell the difference in practice. It's actually easier to hand-hold the 28-300 up close than the 105, and it focuses a little easier. Since Nikon no longer makes a micro zoom, this is the best alternative. And it is also great at long range at full zoom. I've read several pros who do not like zoom lenses and who talk about framing by walking. That's fine for some situations, but the zoom is by far my preference. Being able to go from wide angle to telephoto with a quality lens on a quality camera means a lot to me. I have hundreds of pictures that are pro quality though I am not a pro, and even though it's the photographer who makes good pictures, the equipment certainly helps! Last but certainly not least, the price is great considering the versatility and range of the lens. Great going, Nikon! July 30, 2014
The most versatile lens in Nikon world I have this lens for over a year, about one month after it has released. This lens is so versatile that I make it to my top best 10 Nikon lens. The first time my friend showed off his lens during one of our photo huntings. He point the lens at about 30cm (1ft) to my face and showed the result on his D3s camera at 300mm. The image is so sharp. Okay, I write it again: 300mm at a distance of 30cm (1ft)!! I was sold immediately and when I got back to my town, I ordered one for me. I have brought this lens to several countries, together with 16-35, 24-70, 70-200 f/2.8, 16mm fisheye, 35mm f/1.4 as my usual whole setup for photo huntings. This lens is however always on my D4 almost all the time. To give you guys the importance of this lens to me, I have almost all recent Nikon lenses up until 400mm f/2.8 VR (except 24mm f/1.4 and 200 f/2), but 28-300mm is the best lenses for me, and for all Nikonians in my photo club. I wrote a little list of my best 10 Nikon lenses in my personal website (no commercial site) http://www.fnubrawijaya.com/berita-153-my-nikon-10-best-lenses.html. I apologize for my broken English. Oh yes, I am more in landscape and street/human interest photography. It is important to have two kind of interest to make our photo hunting worth every time (you cannot take photos during rain). February 5, 2013
Great clear pleasure Had this lens on the famous D800. Was a big pleasure to shoot in Paris, at tourists having fun in parks . The lens is clear , enough even at 300 mm . For travel its making the majors pics you have to do. Not so heavy and no heavy work to change lens according to the subject. If not satisfied by the accuracy, just work a bit with your laptop and all becomes well. I just need a wide angle beside, i will choose the wonderfull 16 35 VR. Weight will be all right for having a walk and good shoots ! DD. January 17, 2013
Much better than expected! Most reviews indicate an extremely useful all around lens with average optical quality. Well, I might have got a good number because the detail obtained on both a D300 and a D800 is impressive, quite superior to the results obtained with 18-200mm, regardless of the camera pixel count. The lens was reported as soft at 300mm. Not mine, which I found at par with the 80-400mm. The VR system appears to be better than the one of most of my lenses. In addition, at 300mm, the lens gives excellent results in the macro range, with an impressive working distance. Fantastic for insects! November 17, 2012

I am interested in this lens, but I'm not sure if it is my best choice. I like its versatility, but I wonder if the performance would be better if I purchased a 24-85mm and a 70-300mm (about the same price in the end). I am shooting with a D600 - its my first FX camera.

Answer: 
The 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 is more versatile than the 24-120, but really these lenses are not very good for portraits or weddings.
An ideal lens would be a lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 or below. The lower the aperture (F-number), the more your subject will stand out from the background and surrounding.

Some of the best lenses for wedding and portraits are 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4,70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II etc. You can do a google search to see what other wedding photographers are using.

Answer: 
Turning the VR off is not required, but the VR is not needed when the lens and camera are stable on a tripod. With the VR on the time from pressing the shutter release until the exposure is taken is slowed slightly, so turning off the VR when not needed avoids this slight delay.

Will the Nikon D800 built-in flash throw a shadow when using the 28-300 at the wider apertures?

I ask because I have the Nikkor 17-55 f2.8 lens. When I use it with my D7000 built-in flash, it throws a shadow from 18-30 mm (roughly). It seems like the lens is too big for the D7000 flash.

Answer: 
The built-in Speedlight is compact and close to the camera it cannot be used under all conditions. When using a lens that is physically very long, a subject that is very close, or a wide lens hood it is possible that a shadow may be cast upon the subject. When the lens is too long or the coverage is too wide with a close subject a shadow of the lens itself is cast. Switching (or zooming) to a shorter lens prevents the shadow and allows even illumination. The built-in Speedlight on many Nikon cameras is designed to be a convenient way to either light up a dark subject or to add fill light to a daytime scene. The built-in Speedlight cannot replace a full size, external speedlight which should be used when more power or coverage is needed. For lighting tips please see the Learn and Explore article: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...

Answer: 
It is compatible but you might want to consider the AF-S DX 18-300 3.5-5.6 VR II. It is a DX lens and will give you a little wider angle. The only reason to buy the 28-300 is if you plan on going full frame in the future.
