Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

"I've owned this lens for two weeks and couldn't be happier. I've shot images of dogs running full speed and the focus keeps up with them. I've also shot some humans at 150mm @1/30th sec. and they are as sharp as could be. I am 100% happy with this lens."

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II

"If you want the best possible lens at this focal length then this is the best money can buy. I think from a value perspective this lens with the various tele-converters give you the most coverage and value for the money. I do also shoot a 70-200mm f/2.8 with and without the tele-converters with very good results, however the sharpness with this lens as expected is beyond comparison."
