My take, LZ you have me convinced as a do-all for certain situations.







not the sharpest in my book but fair enough, and the 28mm lock is a convenient plus

I did try this lens as a combo with Z7. Much lighter, smaller set. My own conclusion - usable, F8.0 inside and flash, 11 outside. Forget about 5.6 - the lens is eating alive by that new sensor, at 16 strong diffraction ruined the image.  LZ 2019-04-13_4-1 by longzoom, on Flickr.2019-04-13_4-1-2 by longzoom, on Flickr

2019-04-13_6-1 by longzoom, on Flickr.     Do not judge these images very critically - I just try to show technical side. This sensor is not copy of any previous one, not even close. The new one carries wider DR, sharper, more detailed, wider gamut. Please note - it is my own conclusion, nothing more! THX!  LZ

2019-08-17_20 by 2019-08-17_20-2 by longzoom, on Flickr]longzoom[/url], on Flickr2019-08-17_1 by longzoom, on Flickr    Very foggy was at this night. Upper image with crop, where you are able to see some detailing at the fence. The image, technically, is not the best ever seen, but under the given light and 1/20 handheld, this old lens's technology is still acceptable, I think. The last image was taken at ISO 11400, Z7 body. Full info at Flickr, if someone is interesting in it. THX!  LZ

Pretty Nice, LZ.   You like the lens on the Z7 ?  The AF works well in combination with the FTZ? 

I was thinking to acquire this lens for my Nikon Z6,  probably the latest versions of this lens are the best?

    Thanks, John! For family/travel, and, rarely, for something else, I like it very much, in combination with my old  Tok 17. While the 28-300 lens is not fully up to amazing Z7's sensor, it is still more than acceptable at f8 - 11, as you can see. With FTZ works perfectly, not even smallest difference to my former D800-850 bodies, outside. Inside, under poor light, a little bit slower - very little bit! Unfortunately, I am looking for lighter combos, that's why all of my heavy bodies are gone, and this one is directly for me. If you on market for this lens, get it from big store, it is warranty you get the very last version, or, even better, directly from Nikon store. Or, wait for already promised new 28-280 Nikkor, but who knows... Good luck, anyway!  LZ

The barrel distortion on the wide end is humongous ;)
Yet a great walkaround lens, as LZ has been showing,
Lens has got a lock preventing it from sagging down,

Thanks LZ and Fons.  Looks like the Back-up-Lens-For-All-Tasks, I am looking for ;)   And also useable on the F and Z mouth.

It is also a very nice lens for IR.

Very nicely and interesting done, Alaun! So what is it: modified sensor, filter, software, or combination? THX!  LZ
