    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

AFAIK, there is only one version of the 28-300 zoom. From day zero, it was with the VRII (indicated by the yellow VR lettering), same optical scheme, same coating...

Roland Vink mentions 2 versions, but they differ only in the numbering: one for the USA (56xxxxxx) and one for the rest of the world (52xxxxxx)

It is the 18-200 DX that has two versions: the first version (discontinued) had VR-I (red VR letters) and no zoom-creep block switch, second version (current) has VRII (Yellow VR) and zoom-creep block switch.

What do you mean by "very last version" ? Am I missing something ?

Ciao from Massimo

You are right, there is only one version of the 28-300 (there are two versions of the DX 18-300 lens - f/5.6 and f/6.3)
I think "late version" means a new or late production lens, not an older used lens...

I have a 28-300, and I've had the first version of the 18-200 (sold).

The 28-300 is the lens I use when I want to travel light. One body, one lens, pretty decent results, not a lightning for AF (of course, at 300mm it's only 5.6 max aperture...)

There is a tiny difference between the very last version of this lens and copies which were made 7 years ago. Some changes were done to the boards, oils used, and so on. As a result, last copies are a bit faster to AF, more stable to a repeating sequence, with somewhat better weather-proof.  So, there is a usual, everyday evolution of this particular optics-mechanics device. So nothing special was done, and, as it was before, your copy is relying on your luck. That's is why I am saying and repeating - big store always has way better exchange policy.  LZ    (BTW, my copy was made 6 years ago, but optics were assembled perfectly, that's why I am keeping it.)
