NPhoto - - Over To You … -

I have been a reader of N-Photo since it first came out and fol­low with in­ter­est the an­nounce­ments and re­views of equip­ment. I would like to draw your at­ten­tion to the Nikon 300mm f/4 PF launched ear­lier this year by Nikon as I don’t be­lieve that you have men­tioned or fea­tured this lens yet.

My wife is a keen pho­tog­ra­pher and now uses a D7200, hav­ing moved from a D300, but she found that the cur­rent crop of lenses suit­able for wildlife were far too heavy. As a re­sult her in­ter­est in wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy was some­what lim­ited, as she was not able to achieve the re­sults she wanted with the lenses she had. We were able to pur­chase the new Nikon 300mm f/4 PF lens back in April and it is noth­ing short of spec­tac­u­lar. Weigh­ing in at 755 grams, when mar­ried to the D7200 it gives a very us­able 450mm equiv­a­lent fo­cal length and the same level of sharp­ness at f/5.6 that I en­joy with my Nikon 300mm f/2.8, which weighs more than three times as much. Even at f/4 the 300mm f/4 lens is ex­tremely sharp. Need­less to say I am se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing buy­ing the 300mm f/4 PF for my­self.

Here are some im­ages that my wife An­gela has taken with the 300mm f/4 PF. John Lord, via email We pre­viewed the lens back in is­sue 43. How­ever, we haven’t had one in our test lab yet, so thanks for let­ting us know how your wife is get­ting on with it, John!
