11x super zoom lens with image stabilization for full-frame Nikon DSLRs

With a nearly 11x zoom range this addition to Nikon’s line-up is clearly worthy of serious attention, but when you note that the lens offers full-frame coverage and is available for comfortably under $1,142 it becomes an even more attractive proposition.

The bad news is that the maximum aperture starts at f/3.5 for 28mm and decreases steadily to f/5.6 to 300mm. That is not a serious problem in terms of low-light use because the lens benefits from Nikon's dual-mode Vibration Reduction (VR II) technology, which is claimed to allow the use of exposure times that are up to four times longer than would otherwise be possible when hand-holding. For instance, rather than having to shoot at 1/500sec to ensure a sharp image, the VR system will allow you to shoot at a shutter speed as low as 1/30sec and still, theoretically, get a blur-free shot.

The lens has a distinctly chunky feel but is very easy to hold. A wide zoom ring dominates the front half of the barrel, turning through about 100° across the full focal-length range. A narrower focusing ring sits to the rear, separated by a focused-distance window, behind which reside sliders to choose manual-only focusing and to activate and select the VR system’s mode of operation. A lens pouch and a petal-type lens hood are both provided as well.

Automatic focusing is quick and quiet thanks to Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor technology. The focusing is internal, meaning that the manual focusing ring remains stationary in AF mode but manual adjustments can still be made at any time if desired.

The MF ring is rather on the small side and is also slightly too far to the rear of the lens for this to be a comfortable operation but AF performance is good enough for manual interventions to be a rarity rather than a common occurrence.

Technical testing revealed a good set of MTF curves that remained above the critical 0.25 cycles-per-pixel threshold for most focal-length settings and most apertures. The significant exception was wide-apertures at 28mm but this is unlikely to be a popular combination. For the most common apertures, at all focal lengths, the MTF figures were reassuringly good for such a versatile and keenly-priced lens.

Overall the performance of this lens is very solid indeed. Nikon describes it as "the ideal walkabout lens”, adding that it offers “maximum flexibility with minimum kit”, and that claim definitely stands good.

Creative photographers may mourn the lack of wider apertures but that would be an unreasonable complaint when the zoom range is so wide and the price-point is so low. The surprise, perhaps, is that this is a full-frame lens and that fact simply sweetens its appeal even more. The 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom truly is very attractive indeed, though it’s perhaps more suited to D600 and D700 cameras rather than the more demanding D800.
