Nikon 70-300 VR Lens Review, Entry Level Telephoto

My Nikon 70-300 vr lens review hits home because I used this lensnikon 70-300 vr lens review for a year. I took some great pictures and learned how to use this lens to my advantage. When I could afford I moved up to a 300 mm prime that cost 3 times as much.

It took my a while to part with this lens because I still used it at shorter distances.

Nikon 70-300 VR Lens Review

This is a good entry level telephoto lens for the novice and enthusiast to afford. I have hundreds of quality images on stock sites from this lens and have earned with it.

The lens has a solid feel for a plastic lens, the weight is easy to handle compared to the heavier professional grade lenses. It has a metal housing for durability.

My Review

I used the Nikon 70-300 mm lens on the Nikon D5100, and D5200 with similar results. The images from 70-250 were clear and sharp, but they softened from 250 to 300 mm. I took some quality images at 300 when I had the light to raise the shutter speed above 1/500’s of a second.

The lens makes a slight motor noise which is the VR working, you can also hear the VR turn of with a low thud sound but this is normal for this lens.

The auto focus was fast enough for sports shots while to VR helped to steady the shot.

I recommend this lens for someone that is new to photography and not sure they are going to stick with it. Or as I did, to add range and flexibility to my equipment at a cost I could afford.

The lens also held it’s value well. I bought it used and sold it more then a year later for a twenty dollar profit.

My Nikon 70-300 VR Lens review was one of the easiest I have done. A quality entry level Telephoto lens at an affordable price.
