Pro’s Killer Kit #02 Nikon 300mm f/4D IF-ED

NPhoto - - The Photo Apprentice -

Lloyd says… I bought Nikon’s cheaper D-type 300mm f/4 lens be­cause I couldn’t af­ford the f/2.8G ver­sion – it’s four times the price! This one is lighter and eas­ier to han­dle, and al­though it’s a D-type lens, it still has Nikon’s Silent Wave aut­o­fo­cus mo­tors. Like Nikon’s other pro­fes­sional prime tele­pho­tos, it’s de­signed to pro­duce sharp images even when it’s wide open, so this gives it a big ad­van­tage over con­sumer lenses like Dave’s 55-300mm zoom, which only of­fers an aper­ture of f/5.6 at full zoom, and re­ally needs to be stopped down to f/8 to de­liver its best re­sults.
