Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Question

Is it fully compatible with Nikon D7000 camera?

Hi,

One friend offered me a new kit with this lens; ( D7000 + 18-105 DX VR ) + 28-300 VRII.
1. May you please inform me, is it a good combination?
2. And for this 28-300mm; short description says "An ideal lens for FX-format D-SLRs...". Is this fully compatible with D7000?

Thank you and best regards.

The combination is good. The comment about FX cameras states that it is compatible with FX cameras but it will work with your D7000.

Yes. 100%. I traded in a 18 - 105 for the 28 - 300. Did not think I would bother switching back. It's a little bigger and heavier but that is a very small difference.

answer 3
Absolutely, it is fully compatible.
Since you will have the asp-c sensor in the D7000,
your focal length will be extended to 42-400mm,
while staying with the 3.5-5.6 aperture range.
I shoot full-frame and asp-c (DX), but purchase only
full-frame, non-DX lenses so that they are all compatible
with either camera.

I have the d7000 with the 28mm-300mm vr. Once you use this lens you won't be satisfied with the quality of the photos of the 18-105mm kit lens. I would recommend not to waste your money on that lens. Purchase the body by itself and invest the money you saved in the 10-24mm dx as a wide angle lens when you need it and the 28-300mm for everything else you will have the only lenses you will ever need and an amazing system.

No. The lens is an DX format lens, so the image circle will not cover the entire film area. The lens will mount, but the image itself will be unusable.

This is not 28-300, it is essentially 28-200. At least the copy I received zoom only up to 200mm. Beyond that, just the ring rotates, no zooming!

Its a great Lens, but I think in DX mode you are better off with the 18-200. You will not have wide angle shots with this lens. Its equivalnet to a 50MM on a DX format.

The right selection for a lens will depend a lot on the type of photography that you are interesting. Some photographers look for faster lenses (large aperture ex. F/2.8), wide angle, Telephoto, Macro or zoom lenses.
Please visit our website and use the lens finder tool in order for you to make your selection base on your needs.

Yes, it is an AFS auto-focus, which means it will work with cameras which don't have built in auto-focus.
Your aps-c sensor will extend the focal range to 42-400mm, while giving you the same 3.5-5.6 aperture range.

It is compatible. The image quality will blow your mind. The only draw back is that the 24-70mm is actually for a FX (Full Frame) camera. Thus, the 24-70mmm is affectively a 35-105mm lens on your D5000 (DX) camera.

Absolutely. You will have the same aperture range, but the aps-c sensor will extend your lenses range to 42-400mm.
Actually, since this lens is an AFS lens it will even work with DSLRs with no auto-focus motor built into the camera, like the D40, for example.

not actually, but this the FX (full frame) version of the 18-200 lens (that is DX only). in theory, it should be just as fine, however, you lose the wide angle range of the 18-200.

Question

28-300mm Lens Hood

Several of the reviews on this lens state that the lens hood is a "loose" fit, and that the lens and hood must be shipped back to Nikon for correction. Is that issue corrected on all 28-300mm lenses sold on Nikon's website?

Thanks in advance.

I never had an issue with my 28-300mm, whether its a big enough issue to generate action for you is more of a preference in time and cost versus a slightly better fit in your lens hood.

Yes. It is an Fx lens, so you get cropping which makes it effectively 42--452 MM tele

no af, no vr. since it's a G class lens (it doesn't have a manual aperture ring), you have to find a G-EF converter (they allow you to set the aperture by mechanically moving the clutch that opens the aperture). they are available, and they are expensive. :)

Yes there are adaptors available to use Nikon lenses on Canon bodies, if you Google there are plenty of places that sell them, from a quick search it would seem that some allow metering etc and others are manual only. You would have to decide for yourself as to which one would siut your needs.

Question

Is it fully compatible with Nikon D60 DX camera? If so, what is the zoom range on a DX format camera?

Currently have a Nikon D60 DX format camera with the Nikon 18-55mm VR and Nikon 55-200mm VR lens. Want to get the 28-300mm lens for my D60 but not sure if this is a better lens or the Nikon 70-300mm VRII lens. Please advise. Really want a "all-in-one" travel lens...read somewhere that this Nikon 28-300mm lens is for the FX format but also supports the DX format but at 42-450mm. Is this correct?

If it we up to me, and I wanted an "all in one" lens I would go with the 28-300. (I do not know the features of the D60.) There are two categories of non-professional photography: One takes the everyday pictures of family, friends, and travel, the absolutely essential photography. For that purpose, a 28-55 lens is my walk around lens. We have both the 28-300 lens and the 55-200 lens. Both my wife and I like the 28-300 for the second category, taking pictures of note. Find the subject - a bird feeding a baby bird - zoom to the best composition, take the picture and enter it in a contest. These long focal lenght lenses are expensive. We took the plunge for the 28-300 and don't regret it.
Here are some pictures with the 28-300: One is a 50 mm, the next at 300, the third a crop of the second showing people on top of the mountain.

Nikon Staff give the worst answers ever. The max aperture will decrease as you zoom in, but not a lot. It'll probably go to F/5.6 around 110mm focal length.

On most lenses the maximum aperture will decrease when you zoom in, as the optics move to focus at the new zoom range. These zoom lenses are said to have a "variable" aperture. To achieve the widest possible aperture, you need to be at the widest possible zoom setting.
