All I can say, this lens is scary sharp. I have the Nikon DX format 18-200mm VR lens and it can't even compare to this lens sharpness. The image quality took with this lens is unrealistic almost like 3D looking.

This is a great bird in tree lens. It handles well and takes remarkably sharp images hand held. It has very effective vibration reduction. The build is solid. This is a well made lens. With a Nikon 1 camera, it makes an effective lightweight wildlife system (35mm equivalent 189mm - 810mm) for sunny days.

The lens is a clear step above using the FT-1 adapter and F mount lenses for similiar reach.

Being able to photograph birds and other subjects at a distance is a treat with this lens. Image sharpness and portability are definite pluses.

I needed to replace my FT-1 and 55-300 F Mount as shooting moving birds or animals was too difficult. I've used them for 2 years during safaris and Holidays while working in Africa.
I have limited experience with this new lens, but even after 1 day shooting this lense is a real improvement and provides much better auto-focus with the multi-points.
Still not as fast as a Reflex, but with practice I should be close.
I really recommend this lens for wild life shooting. And for BIT (Bird In Tree) this lens remains uncomparable.

This lens build quality is fantastic. The external barrel is metal. It feels substantial and effuses quality. Unlike my Nikon1 V2 and 10-30, this lens is Made In Japan. I use it with the Nikon 1 V2 camera. It passes the build quality test.

The images this lens produces are sharp with excellent contrast, and pleasing colours. It passes the Image quality test.

I use this lens mainly for birding. With the Nikon V2 camera AF capabilities, the focusing is quick, accurate, and definitive. I have shot with it in typical Vancouver weather - which means overcast skies, and not so optimal lighting. The AF performed remarkably under these circumstances. Now I am in my mid 40's and my eyes are not as good at determining whether the subject is in focus. Luckily for me, with the V2 + this lens, the AF is spot on. I usually shoot with center focus point and then recompose. However with the V2 + this lens, I have changed my strategy to auto AF point + subject tracking. Somehow the AF has always been spot on the subject I want to capture. Now this is remarkable as I usually almost never have luck when I leave it to the camera and lens to determine the AF. I feel Nikon has done an amazing job here and I can't stress this point enough that the V2 + this lens = a lot of keepers. For me the keepers (in focus) are 85% plus of my shooting. Also the AF doesn't get tricked by a busy background which is what I frequently encounter in the national parks here. I am sure this lens should perform just as good with the other Nikon 1 cameras. Yes it passes the AF test.

The VR is also very good. I fully utilize the Nikon V2 camera's 15fps with electronic shutter capabilities. Again combined with good AF + good VR = lots of keepers.

Great lens for the Nikon 1 system. Use mine with the V2. Good for sports and birding because the autofocus is really fast and the whole rig weighs so much less than just an 80-400 Nikkor lens.

It's great to have such a long telephoto in a small package. It is very sharp, and focuses quickly with the V3. Zoom is not real smooth and materials seem a little cheap for a $1000 lens. But results in daylight type conditions are good. It won't help the issue with image quality and noise with the V3. In other words, avoid low light situations and pushing your iso past 400.

Sharp and versatile on a Nikon 1 V1. The lens is long when extended for use (no battery-draining power zoom or extending) but well-balanced. Manual zoom and focus are appropriate for quick access when chasing kids and other wildlife.

The Nikon 1 series of camera's had been like little jewels that are not regarded in the same regard as their full size DSLR cousins.. Parts of this I believe due to lens choices. But with the release by Nikon of the Nikon 1 VR 70-300mmn lens I believe this gap has lessened. Have worked with this for over a month, great images result!
