Default Review with pix: Refurb 70-300 DX AF-P from Amazon $130

https://www.amazon.com/70-300mm-4-5-...ords=70-300+dx

Came today, did some testing.. I can tell already, at 300 its going to need plenty of good light.. but, that is with any budget lens. The focus is VERY fast and reasonably (98%) accurate with moving subjects (AF-S setting).

Enjoy..

The album at Flickr, 19 total... I will only post a few here..

This is *not* a $1,000(USD) lens, nor did I expect it to perform like one.
It is a (retail) $400 lens...
https://www.amazon.com/Nikon-70-300m...ords=70-300+dx

I am very happy with it's performance in terms of focus speed and focus accuracy. Also the zoom ring is very smooth and consistent throughout the range. My boss at work loaned me a Canon t4i with kit lens, and the lens was sticking though the zoom and was very unhappy with that, I'm glad I didnt spend MY money on it!

So, for $130(USD) I am actually thrilled with it! Looking forward to the next bright day where I can get out and sit and wait on some wildlife to appear for a quick snap.


All images are un-retouched JPEGs right off the memory card with picture set to "Vivid" in camera.

That is all...
Andrew
