In the past two years they have added several new templates and have launched a new site called lenshoods.com which is “optimized for digital SLRs with 1.5x and 1.6x crop sensors”.

Nikon AF-S 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens review

Pin It

Christian Handl (www.christianhandl.com) tests the new Nikon AF-S 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens:

Short Verdict: A great lens, buy it if you need it!

At the beginning some considerations about fixed focal lenses versus Zoom lenses:

Simple said a Zoom is more versatile, so for example at a street parade I would use my Nikon Af-s 28-300 mm f3,5-5,6 lens. For landscape and architecture I use my 24 and 45 mm shift lenses, the 14-24 mm Zoom and the 70-200 mm f4 and if necessary the TC1,4x II.

For sports, action and animal photography it gets more complicated for me. I often would like to use my 200-400 f4 or the 300 f2,8 lens but depending on the location I often choose lighter gear, especially when I have to travel with a plane. I do know winter sports photographers here in Austria who travel by car to Norway many 1000 miles just to prevent the hassles flying with their heavy equipment.
