And thats exactly what not to do in the Lens Gallery, add clarity and sharpness ;-) that way its not the lens performance but your PP skills.

Just a quick note :-)

I'm getting pretty good sharpness over 200mm with my copy. Here's an original photo and crop of a F1 car at 195mph:

Hi,

I am still discovering this lens. I have a Nikon D7000 with the 70-300mm f4.5-f5.6G IF-ED. I bought it for animal photography and anything else i might come across. I like the build qualiy. It has no zoom creep, it has a metal lens mount and even a rubber seal at the lensmount for weather and dust protection. Optical quality is pretty good and affordable.

With the D7000 I really needed RAW correction in Lightroom but then it really looks nice. Stil not razor sharp but what can you expect for a 358 euro zoom lens. I guess its better as you can expect for this pricerange. I didnt use any photoshop tricks. Just the regular RAW post-corrections. (white balance, sharpness, contrast and stuff like that).

I think i didnt even use the full potential of this lens so i expect to make even better photos in the future.

ISO 160, f5.6, 1/100 sec at 240mm.
I think the post processing could have been done a bit better ( i think i went to far). Dont mind the bad bokeh. That happend after JPG conversion, i think i didnt use srgb web conversion or something like that, original RAW has much better bokeh without distortion.

Image

Here is one more. Of course animals like to go sit at the worst possible spot, from photography perspective anyway, like this one over here in a dark spot near the water under a tree with very hard light conditions. I had to make it at ISO 1600 1/30 sec f5.6 at 300 mm.

Well better then no pictures at all, but i guess the high ISO really effects the sharpness. I only did RAW post correction in lightroom no fancy tricks (dont even know how to do that to be honest).
