Versatile 10.7x zoom lens with ED glass and VR II image stabilization
Versatile FX-format zoom lens offers a broad focal length range that's perfect for travel, landscapes, portraits and distant subjects.
Optimized for edge to edge sharpness on both FX and DX-format D-SLRs
DX-format D-SLR angle of view is equivalent to a focal length of 42-450mm in FX/35mm format.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be
possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
3 Aspherical Lens Elements
Virtually eliminates coma and other aberrations, even at wide apertures.
Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus
M/A Focus Mode Switch
Enables quick changes between manual and autofocus operation.
Internal Focus (IF)
Provides fast and quiet autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance throughout the focus range.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
Zoom Lock Switch
Secures the lens barrel at its minimum focal length preventing the lens from extending during transport.
Focus to 18 inches at any focal length
Extends versatility
Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
Renders more natural appearance of out-of-focus image areas.

5 out of 5 stars   Great Lens
By Larry (Hartsdale, NY) April 23, 2013
Review submitted for Nikon 2191 - 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR (NK28300VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Strong Construction, Broad Zoom Range, Nice Bokeh, Consistent Output, Good For Closeups, Rugged, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Easily Interchangeable
Cons: Poor in Low Light
Other Comments: I bought this lens for travel. Because of its broad zoom range it will probably be the only one I have to take with me. I will save a lot on weight, and bulk, not to mention security issues; I won't have to worry about protecting several thousand dollars worth of glass. I haven't noticed much lens creep, though I've seen comments about it in other reviews. Perhaps it will loosen up with time. It is very versitile and has hardly left my camera since I got it.

3 out of 5 stars   A very good walk around lens
By tominrom (Rome, NY) November 14, 2012
Review submitted for Nikon 2191 - 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR (NK28300VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Lightweight, Easily Interchangeable
Cons:
Other Comments: I had the lens about 2 weeks. I bought it as a "walk around" lens for my D800. When I first got it the zoom stuck at about 40 mm and with a gentle turn it went beyond and worked OK and I liked it for the purpose I bought it and if it was not for the problem I would recommend it. About a week later it stuck again, sort of like the zoom lock was on but it was not. I returned it and bought the 24-70 f2.8 and am happy with it.

5 out of 5 stars   Awesome Upgrade to the Nikon 18-200mm
By traderfjp (Smithtown, NY) October 24, 2010
Review submitted for Nikon 2191 - 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR (NK28300VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Awesome optics, Not soft on long end, No lens creep, Psuedo macro, Excellent Build Quality, Fantastic clarity
Cons: Price
Other Comments: I owned the Nikon 18-200mm which I enjoyed and was sharp to about 120mm but was soft at the long end. The 28-300mm is a much sharper lens and is sharp from 200-300mm. I'm really enjoying this lens and can't believe how good the build quality is. There is no lens creep like the 18-200mm. I ended up giving my old Nikon lens to my 15 year old daughter which she has on her D3000. Not a bad setup either. In closing I would say that the 28-300mm is a nice upgrade from the 18-200mm and you'll be set if you decide to upgrade to an FX camera.
I recommend this product Yes, I recommend this product
