Nikon AF-S 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR review

The Nikon AF-S 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a superzoom lens for full-frame cameras, which is something of a rarity compared to superzooms for crop sensor bodies. The extra quality enabled by an FX rather than DX format camera comes at the cost of extra weight and increased price. With a bigger image circle required to fill a full-frame sensor, this lens has a larger diameter and is hefty at 800g. It’s therefore less than ideal as a ‘travel lens’.
