AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR - Review and Sample Photos

Nikkor 28-300

Photographer and blogger Bob Krist has written one of the first reviews of Nikon's new 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 FX format zoom lens and also posted some sample photos. According to Bob, this new lens is even better than Nikon's 18-200mm DX zoom.

I have to say that this lens, along with the venerable 18-200mm Nikkor, has completely turned my head around when it comes to the viability of a variable aperture uni-zoom as a professional tool. This one, in particular, blew my mind and spun my head around 360 degrees…(think Linda Blair in The Exorcist!). I couldn’t find a downside to it.
