    I got my new Nikkor 70-300mm lens today. I am kind of on the fence about this lens right now. It takes pretty decent photos when I am pretty close to them, but if I want to take a photo from a distance at 300mm, they are not that great. I guess I will practice with it a bit more, if still not up to my expectations..well then it won't be a keeper

    These are a few photos I took at a pretty close range that came out alright.

    I used the tripod on these and used it at long range 300mm..to be honest, my tripod is a piece of junk, so that could be a bit of the problem as well.

    Is it the G or ED lens. The G is not very sharp from what I have seen and hear. I have used the ED lens for years and it is great.

    I went cheap and got the G lens :meh: I am still looking for a 75-300mm that is super sharp compared to the new 70-300mm lenses

    Looks like you got good results. Fate is right about the tripod. I have that lens and it rarely comes out of the bag. Just try to use fast shutter speeds (and a tripod). It's really good in bright light.

    I also like the last one:)
