 Post subject: 70-300mm VR
PostPosted: Wed May 02, 2007 6:33 pm 
Hello all

Just had a question for Gordon:

I noticed in your New Zealand thread that you had taken some shots with a 70-300 lens; I assume this is the Nikon VR lens? Right or wrong? If so - I wondered what your experience of using this lens has been like and if you recommend it.

Hi Kevin, fraid not, the 70-300mm lens I had used was the Canon 70-300mm DO IS model, which for the record is pricey, but does offer a very compact body with L build quality... full review coming in the future!

As for the Nikkor 70-300mm VR, you need to speak to forum moderator Phil Lee, who's just come back from NZ with his - and I believe it was pointed at a variety of wildlife! So over to you Phil, what do you think of the 70-300mm VR?


PS - we'll also be doing an official review of this lens in the future...

Hi Kevin

Gordon is right, I took 3 lenses to New Zealand, one of which was the 70-300mm VR. I haven't uploaded any processed photos from the trip using the lens yet but will have a quick go at lunchtime. In the meantime you can see some photos I've taken using it here.

Nikon D80, Nikkor lenses: 35mm f1.8 G AF-S DX, 50mm f/1.8 AF D, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX, 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR, SB800 flash

Thanks Phil

Great photos by the way,
looks really good, impressed with the Gulls in flight.

Some of those Stag shots have a lot of depth too. Seems to be a good lens.

Looking forward to your NZ set.
