On 28-300/D810 combo.

2016-12-02 004 by 2016-12-03 015 by 2016-12-03 001-2 by longzoom2016-12-03 008 by longzoom, on Flickr2016-12-03 008-2 by longzoom, on Flickr, on Flickros/longzoom/]longzoom[/url], on Flickrm/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr      This extremely demanding body requires absolutely precise FT, if one wants to get stunningly sharp images in return. The 28-300 lens, while is not fully pro one, is not exclusion to this rule.  The last image is posted with the crop, to show full potential of the combo.  THX!   LZ

The 28-300mm lens is excellent; visit my thread http://nikongear.net/revival/index.php/topic,3741.msg56290.html#msg56290

Last one with 2 crops at lower ISO. DR is stunning there. Middle ISO settings goes to D800, and high ones back again to D810, in my experience, of course. LZ

2016-12-20 004-1 by 2016-12-20 004-1-3 by longzoom, on Flickrngzoom/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr.  This combo is at its best at f9.5, I believe, due to extremely demanding sensor. On the D800 body most useful aperture is f8.0, what is fully understandable. So the technical image with crop, at f 9.5.   LZ

Clearly technical image.  While I am able to work with grain and sharpness, some color shift is unavoidable. I just want to give an idea how it is looking. Its could be done previously, by someone else, so, it is my own way.  Thanks!   LZ

014-1 by 014-1-2 by longzoom, on Flickrm/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr.    The lens at 300mm, f8.0, ISO 100, 1/90.  Minimal distance.  The body was D800, I believe, but in this case, there is no much difference to the D810. An image with 100% crop.  TNX!  LZ

How does it compare with the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 vr?

My former copy of 70-300VR was not as sharp as this one. Even sharper Tamron was not in the same league with good copy of the 28-300 lens from the very last batch from Nikon. But the 70-300VR is much more tolerable to FT, then the 28-300 is. As more complicated is optical formula of any Nikkor, as more difficult and critically responsible is Fine Tune. The 80-400G or 28-300, for example. It is my own opinion, of course. THX!  LZ

VR70-300 seems to be renovated soon:

I was not impressed by the current VR70-300.

I hope so, too, because I think 70-300 is the best compromise between the compactness of 70-200 and the versatility of 80-400.

The 70-200/4 is another good compromise if you don't need the extra reach. My guess is the new 70-300 will have the same 67mm filter as the current model and the 70-200/4. What Nikon really needs is a compact standard zoom - the 24-85VR is the smallest and quite bulky. Maybe something like 24-70/4, also with 67mm filter to match the tele-zooms. That would make a very nice two-lens kit.

Longzoom, you always get such great results with the 28-300 and 80-400!
