Preview: Nikon AF-S 300mm f/4E PF VR
Quote:Wildlife with only 300/4? It's not too bad, but a lot of comparisons came to the conclusion, the old version was equally good, just heavier. For sure, the old version had better contact to the tripod collar. This I explicitely tested: Using the collar will cause more shutter shock issues than mounting the D810 directly on a tripod. Same results I also found with the latest version of 70-200/4

Sure I'm pretty happy to have now a zoom 150-600, which is much more flexible. But having adapted to use only the older 300 Æ’/4 + teleconverters for years, I could have enjoyed the lighter weight of the newer one - which is also stabilised.


Sony a6300, Sony a6000, Sony NEX-6, Sony E 10-18mm F4 OSS, Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS, Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS, Sigma 150-600mm Æ’/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary, Samyang 12mm Æ’/2, Sigma 30mm F2.8 DN | A, Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 100mm Æ’/2.8, Samyang 8mm Æ’/3.5 fish-eye II | Zenit Helios 44-2 58mm Æ’/2 
Plus some legacy Nikkor lenses.
The stabilisation has some blind/blurry spots between 1/160 and 1/320, faster or slower is better in terms of sharpness. I have the last TC17 (510/6.8), but the Tamron 150-600 G2 is definitely not worse. Just more versatile. The Nikkor, however, is a pleasure to handhold.
