not very sharp at minimum apertures

heavy light falloff (vignetting) at maximum apertures

restrictive minimum apertures from 3.5-5.6, makes it poorer for low light shooting, isolating subjects

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is an ultra-high ratio zoom lens with vibration reduction. It is designed to provide FX DSLR format users with the equivalent of Nikon's 18-200mm for DX.  The 10.7X zoom lens is useful as an all-purpose single lens for travelling photography, or working from a fixed position. The super zoom includes two-mode imaging stabilization to the latest VR2 specifications, with a close focus distance of 50cm. The advanced stabilization reduction offers steady hand-held shooting at all focal lengths. The flexible aperture range keeps the lens light and portable while still providing high depth of field effects. The lens is equipped with a zoom lock switch to reduce the lens from moving under its own weight when tilted during commuting, and to maintain compact dimensions when not in use.
