About this deal

The quality of light that reaches the autofocus sensor is often poor and only large aperture lenses that pass through lots of light can focus well enough with the TC-20E III. As you zoom in towards 105mm and longer, there is a bit of barrel distortion, with the strongest effect at 200mm. Another very significant reason you probably will never see one of these is that the 80-200mm f/4 was just as sharp, and focused twice as close. AF-S: Built in auto focus motor, that also works on ML with FTZ adaptors plus on entry level Nikon cameras (!

You give up one stop of maximum aperture but that makes it also lighter on your wallet (around 1200 EUR). or 2x teleconverter would be comparable to a 300mm or a 400mm prime, the answer is a definite “no”, especially at maximum aperture. Bokeh is a word used for the out-of-focus areas of a photograph, and is usually described in qualitative terms, such as smooth / creamy / harsh etc. So, yes, all newer lenses have been VR II; even in the 55-300, which is a lower grade lens than the 70-300. Additionally, the front lens element is coated with Nikon's non-stick Fluorine coat, resisting dirt, fingerprints and smudges.I’ve rated the features with a [+] (or [++]), when it’s better than average or even state of the art, a [0] if it’s standard or just average, and [-] if there’s a disadvantage. As you zoom in, lateral CA definitely increases, with 200mm showing the highest levels at the maximum aperture.

If you lose some focal length at close distances, it also means that you will have to zoom in closer with the f/2.

Another thing to note is that, if your camera does have in-body image stabilization, you cannot engage VR or IBIS independently of one another; you either get both or neither. AF tracking is improved, too, especially for notoriously difficult subjects: those with unpredictable or very slow movement, those moving at random speeds and those approaching the camera at high speed. maximum aperture produces beautiful, creamy background blur, and the masterful design and construction ensures this lens will be a legend. By the way, the MkII version is so highly regarded and so successful (high in demand) that it is unlikely to be upgraded for some years to come.
