Hi, I bought the Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lens. Not the fastest lens, but it will serve my needs. So far, I'm happy with the quality of images from this lens. The below photos are all at 300mm handheld. As previously stated on this forum, the image quality of this lens is a little better at ~250mm or less. But, the price is right, and the VR works nicely! 1. 2. 3. 4.
