I own this lens for 15 years, and despite it’s weight, I can’t seem to give it up. This is what Nikon Quality was all about. Great images, worth the weight.
I bought this used last year and have never regretted the purchase. This is a solid lens manufactured mostly of metal and it is built like a tank and weighs about the same. Image quality is fantastic, even with a x1.4 teleconverter attached and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, optically superb lens. The only drawback is the weight, which I don’t mind but some people might find it tiring to lug about.
I have been using this lens since Jan 2013, it is a very solid performer, I have used it shooting birds, landscape/seascape, at graduation ceremonies ( in door), sporting events, with & without tripod/monopod.
The results have been fantastic, while I am not a pro, I found the lens worked well in all scenarios, with the aperture open all the way & at f 22. the results were fantastic in just about every case except where I hand held & had some camera shake at high speed ( the air show & panning on birds in flight) with those very few exceptions & minimal shots where camera shake on my part prevented a great picture, the lens performed exceptionally well. I rate this lens 5 stars.
