Nikon 300mm f/2.8G AF-S ED VR II Reviews

PDNGearGuide reviews the Nikon 300mm f/2.8G AF-S ED VR II and writes;
“One of the major improvements of the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 ED VR II over its predecessor was less softness in the corners and that upgrade carries over to the new 300mm. Even when shooting winter sports wide open at f/2.8, I got extremely sharp results from this lens. Its peak level of sharpness is probably at f/4 though.”
