On an FX body, the AF-S 28-300 ED VR covers nearly every aspect of travel, landscape, and portrait photography
– including those elusive distant subjects. On a DX-format camera, the apparent focal length gets a 1.5x bump
and it turns into a long-range ace-up-the-sleeve.
For critical focusing-moments the lens has a M/A focus mode switch that allows the photographer to quickly
change between manual and autofocus modes. The autofocusing is remarkably smooth and quiet – thanks to
Nikon’s silent wave motor system. The aperture diaphragm boasts no fewer than 9 blades that produce a
rounded opening – a feature that will be greatly appreciated by bokeh-lovers everywhere!
