More On The Nikon 70-300 VR

Wed Jan 03, 2007 12:52 pm

So, I saw a camera shop had them in stock and bought one on impulse. First thoughts: it takes a little getting used to when you've not shot VR before, but once you get the hang of it, it really works well. This lens is surprisingly sharp for a "prosumer" lens.

This shot was in lowish-light, but I was able to shoot steady at f/8 and 1/320 at the full 300mm:

I think I'll hold on to it to supplement my Sigma 70-200.

Pretty good. What kind of price was there for the lens? Plus, how old is your Sigma? I just purchased their new 70-200mm APO F/2.8 EX DG (with macro) about a month ago and really like it. Now I am trying to decide if I should sell my Tamron 70-300mm and get a 1.4x teleconverter for the Sigma.

I picked up the 70-300VR for $540 including shipping. I ordered it and received it 3 days later.

My Sigma (70-200 APO DG EX, no macro) is a year old. It doesn't have the macro setting, but I never get that close to planes anyways. Maybe if I had ramp access ...  Wink

I'll probably use them both. VR can't stop the action like 2.8 can.

Not everyone has that kind of bankroll, at least not for a hobby (I'm no pro). Maybe some day, but by then, I'm sure there will be some new technology that I'll be drooling over.

Here's another shot I just edited. This was shot at f/5.6 at the full 300mm and 1/60th shutter:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...eady/n997DL_DCA_010107_DSC7737.jpg

Definitely a good lens, worth $540. I also should mention that it's very light, and more compact, so it packs well. I'm guessing it's half the weight of my Sigma.

I'm really intrigued by this new lens.
Have been thinking about it for a while now, but since they're not available in stores in Sweden just yet, I think i'll have to wait. I want to try it before I "commit" to it:  Wink
....on the other hand, from pics I've seen this far it certainly seems good enough!

I do notice a difference in sharpness with the VR on. 1/320th is very close to the reciprocal of the focal length. Isn't that where you start to see blurring effects from camera shake?

The second photo was at 300mm and 1/60th.

DLX, how's the autofocus doing so far? It was speculated that it might be very good.

Ingemar, you seem to know a whole lot about photography. I assume you have good equipment. What makes you so interested in this lens?

I am too, my situation is that I broke my 80-200D last year.  banghead  Now only have a 50-500 for play in good weather and my 'travel' Sigma 70-300. Want something better, usable in worse weather, but preferably reaching to 300 mm and preferably a bit smaller and lighter than the 80-200 2.8. I'm not sure what to do now.

The autofocus is indeed very fast. Click the shutter, and it's there, pretty much. If you have the 18-70, it's faster than that, for reference. It also almost never hunts.

No.
VR does not stop the action - it takes a fast shutter speed to do that. The advantage of a lens with a largest aperture of 2.8 is that it enables to use fast shutter speeds when there would be insufficient light at those shutter speeds for lenses with a largest aperture of, say, f/4.5.
VR reduces the effect of camera shake, i.e. allows you to shoot at a slower shutter speed without getting blurred images.

The IS on my old lens was fantastic, the IS on the 70-300 DO I'm using now (70-200 non-IS just came from a trip Big grin ) is also fantastic, I've gotten decent results @ 300mm 1/60th with them both, but of course Javier G. has got 400mm 1/10th.  Smile

But I'd say it'd be good.

You still need excellent panning skill to use VR or IS at 1/10. VR won't lock the lens onto a subject - you have to have the lens pointed to the same place on the subject throughout the time the shutter is open. I personally am not there yet. But, with my first VR lens, I have incentive to practice!

If you are shaky it reduces blur, whether you are panning or not.

Panning at very slow shutter speeds is not immediately what I'm after, although I'll give it another try with VR.

What I'm really hoping for is that panning a moving plane at, say, 1/250th with the aid of VR will give rather better results than without, so that aperture can stay at f8 or above in weaker light, even though the lens is not a f2.8.

Viv, are you saying that this is a misconception? No, I'm not that shaky.

No, since a person who is shaky will probably also be shaky when panning.

Why do you only shoot at f8 or above? Any additional sharpness you gain will be more than offset by camera shake due to the slow shutter speed. There is additional sharpness in the "sweet spot", but is a very tiny amount. The main reason to avoid larger apertures is to keep adequate depth of field, not sharpness.

I know people who have (very expensive) lenses with the capability to go to 2.8 and they always shoot at f8. There's nowt as queer as folk.

This was taken with a Nikkor 80-400 VR, ISO 100, zoom at 400mm, f9, 1/200th/sec. I was standing on tiptoe to see over the fence.

Hi all

My photo that was added may? be the first one with the Nikon 70-300mm VR, see below link, and was shot with Nikon D200 and 70-300mm VR. That shot is a beauty though, I love the motion blur! So far I really like the 70-300mm VR. The silent wave auto focus is great and it seems pretty sharp. I figured it would compliment my 80-400mm VR and 18-200mm VR well. Sometimes the 80-400mm VR is kind of clunky and heavy and this lens is much smaller and lighter to use, it feels nice.

Seeing that I own the older 70-300 ED non-VR lens and just picked up the newer 70-300 VR I can say that I see an improvement in sharpness in my pictures. I wondered about losing some light thru the lens and thought my shutter speeds would drop at f/8 but surprisingly the exposures remain the same. Bigger lens construction of the new lens has not altered the way I shoot but improved overall sharpness..

I can say to Nikon owners...go get this lens...you'll love it!!

I've been pretty interested in this lens for its relatively small size and weight for the given length. But considering I already have the 70-200 and the 200-400, I'd have a hard time convincing the wife that I need something in the middle of the two!

I did however go out and buy this lens for a friend who has a D100. He works directly under an approach and it's the perfect lens for him to shoot incoming planes...

.. BUT I don't like how dark it is under the wing (call me a hypocrite, and you'd be right). If there was more to see on the underside

I see nothing particularly bad when it comes to lighting in this pic.  Confused
After all, it (b)is(/b) only a little Fokker and you can't expect it to outclimb the sun!!  Wink ...unless the sun is about to set, that is.  mischievous  Big grin

All I am seeing our damn good, if not perfect, light.

 yes 



Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 43):
Let's see some low light and or panning shots. Any lens can take nice shots at f/11....

 yes   yes 

I want to know how it behaves wide-open. Sometimes I might just want to take it there, and when I do, I want it to be at least OK.
If it turns out to be, then I'm "game"!!  thumbsup 
In thrust I trust.

I think he meant the 777, not the Fokker.
I scratch my head, therefore I am.
