Answer:
This is like comparing apples to oranges. The 70-300mm VR is strictly a "consumer-prosumer" grade lens. Think of it as the "cheap version" of the famous Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens. The 28-300mm VR lens is more for the serious amateur or professional on the go that shoots full frame 35mm or DX. I use 2 Nikon D8… see more This is like comparing apples to oranges. The 70-300mm VR is strictly a "consumer-prosumer" grade lens. Think of it as the "cheap version" of the famous Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens. The 28-300mm VR lens is more for the serious amateur or professional on the go that shoots full frame 35mm or DX. I use 2 Nikon D800's and the 28-300mm lens is on one of them at all times. The newer version that is out now is better than the first issue of a couple years ago, and even at 36 megapixels, I'm getting clean, clear, crisp shots...something I rarely got with my 70-300mm lens. To be perfectly honest, with a GOOD quality multi-coated UV filter on it, you can use this lens all day without changing lenses once. It has become my "walking around" lens of choice. In fact, I just got back from Hawaii and used it for 9 days straight without using any of the other 7 lenses I had in my bag. I recommend it, even for your D7000...you'll just end up shooting an effective range of 105mm to 450mm, or a LOOOONNNNGGGG telephoto lens when you need it. see less

Answer:
It can focus pretty close at all focal lengths, but it doesn't have a formal "macro" position. There's a discussion of this on cameralabs site, see the review of this lens. He claims a magnification ratio of 1:2.6 is possible. I haven't measured it myself, but it is a good lens for closeups.

Answer:
If you are going to stick with a DX sensor Nikon for a while, then I think the 18-300mm is your best value. The image quality is going to be very comparable to the 28-300mm, plus the 18-300 has these advantages for the DX shooter:
- It starts at 18mm, so you have much wider coverage for landscape shots or tight spaces

- It starts at 18mm, so you have much wider coverage for landscape shots or tight spaces
- It's smaller and lighter. Since this is going to be an all-purpose travel lens, this will be very helpful
- It's about $150 less
- If you ever go up to FX / full-frame, you can always sell this lens down the road and recoup about 65-75% of the original cost
Enjoy! see less

Answer:
It will but you will loose all the wide angle capabilities due to the crop factor. I would go with the 18-200 or if you really need the extra range the 18-300.

Answer:
It uses a standard 77mm filter, so any one you like. I just use a UV filter on it to protect the glass.

Answer:
If you are doing just portraits I'd go with the 85mm. I have the 28-300 on my 800E and it works fine for an all around lens to shoot any situation.

Answer:
I believe that the d3100 has a dx sensor. I believe that this lens will work with the dx sensor but it wont have an effective focal legnth of 28-300mm. I believe that Nikon makes a similar lens 18-200mm that is for a dx sensor.
