    Good afternoon! I watched such a lens today - I wanted to buy it from my hands. In excellent condition, not frayed, has no scratches. It was embarrassing that having gently shaken he heard that there was something inside - or was it his “insides” that played like that? In addition, I noticed that the front lens inside the lens tilts in the direction I tilt the lens - is this normal or not? Didn't buy, maybe this is an individual feature of this lens?

      I have such glass. If you shake it well, then, indeed, there is a sound as if something is pounding inside. All lenses are fixed when the lens is tilted.

    Everyone is good as a not very expensive telephoto. But there are nuances. I don’t know, maybe such a coincidence, but two of my friends and I had a stabilizer out of order in two or three years. The intensity of use is medium. First, it starts to turn on every other time, then once out of five, and so on increasing until complete failure.
    There is no sense in repairing (expensive and no guarantee). Very sorry. I, of course, left it - let it be in stock, and bought for a report from the new series Tamron 18-400 (5 years warranty). While I am satisfied with everything, I would not say that he is much inferior to Nikon in terms of the image (and even better in color), but in terms of convenience, there is no price.
    Yesterday, in a conversation with another amateur photographer, he complained that the stabilizer on his Nikon 70-300 is already maturing ...
    This is such sadness.

        According to the instructions, turn off the power of the camera before detaching the lens. A feature of Nikon lenses with a stabilizer is the possible breakdown of the stabilizer if the power is turned off incorrectly.

        I wrote that "possible." I, too, are all right, although there have been cases of such errors with power. A greater chance of getting a malfunction during the operation of this stabilizer, that is, if the power is turned off at the moment when the stabilization system makes adjustments and the servo moves.

    I conducted such an experiment: on a Nikon 3100 with a tripod in M ​​mode, a lens of 70-300 at f70 took a picture (theoretically this is f105 at DX). Then I changed it to an 18-105 lens and shot the same thing on f105 (theoretically this is f70 FX). And compared the photos on a laptop. It turned out that the pictures did not correspond to the crop of 1,5, and only by experiment it turned out that f70 (70-300) corresponds to f80 (18-105). Why is that?

      Because focal length is a physical quantity and it does not depend on what the lens is for DX. The rule is simple - on a cropped camera, the EGF is recalculated always and for all lenses without any exceptions.
      That’s why 70mm in 70-300 gives EFG 105mm and 70mm in 18-105 on 70mm gives EGF 105mm. If we put 70-300 on a full frame and 18-105 on a full frame, but at 70mm their viewing angles will be the same, only from 18-105 the edges of the frame will be dark due to the fact that it is not designed to work with full-frame cameras . This question is the most frequent in almost any forum.

    Arkady, explain, if you put this lens on a DX camera, then at the long end of 300 mm (EGF = 450 mm) it will be f5.6. In comparison with another, more expensive (104 tr) lens AF-S 80-400 4.5 - 5.6, when using it already on the FX camera at the long end, we get almost the same focal (400) and aperture (5.6) and that same shooting angle as 70-300. So in the end, if these photos are completely the same (400, 5.6, angle), can you get by with the cheaper 70-300 in conjunction with the DX?

      17.01.2019

      Tell me, have you read somewhere that without 400 / 5.6 you can’t live and shoot? The difference between 400 and 450 equivalent focal length is practically not visible, it’s better to shoot anyway by closing the aperture. Naturally, a lens with a maximum focal length of 400 by 300 will give a picture better than 300 by 300, but who will distinguish it? You can do even 55-300 until the experience comes.

        Following your logic, it is cheaper and more reasonable to take an ultrazoom with an EGF of 1200mm, and the whole world is in your pocket. There are those who want to take a Bentley, etc., and not a grant, etc. Who has a fuss, who can carry the president.

    I wanted to buy a new 70-300mm, but today it turned out to be a problem - there aren’t exactly those cats that you describe on sale. I would like to read about the news in these ranges of 70-400 for my “old man” D50, although, of course, I’m thinking about replacing the “7000” cat. It will be possible to purchase. Personally, I prefer “7000”, but I probably can’t find new ones anymore. I have a biased attitude.

        I don't know what the reason is - is that the pixel is large on the D700 or the glass is like that - but the sharpness is like a fix. This is the only zoom - the rest I have only fixes - 20mm 50mm 90mm. Such things, I myself counted on a slightly worse result.

        Dear, the D50 does not have a 5-megapixel sensor, but the same as in the D6 and some other cameras. It really gives excellent results, but the D40 is the best among them, it works more stable and gives even better results. All those 40-megapixel matrices were great, they were used by Pentax, and those cameras are even now priced. By the way, so far the price of the D6 is two times higher than the D40, which now costs about $ 50.

      What confuses you about the AF-P DX version? It is fully compatible with your D5300. At the same time, it is almost two times lighter and much smaller in size. The stepper motor has advantages in focusing - it is silent (good for video shooting) and focuses quickly and without deviation - immediately. Watch this video review, here the difference between AF-P and AF-S focusing is very clearly shown in the test: https://youtu.be/3dujdiHBwYM

      AF-P will be shorter than the AF-S version (as the first for DX), 300 mm will be 6.3 instead of 5.6, but in return there will be very good stabilization and focus, much better than the AF-S version

        Of course it's critical. I once used two telephoto cameras on the crop: Nikon 55-200 vr and Tamron 70-300 macro (fortunately, I just took it to drive it from a friend). So the first has an average speed, but you can live. The second has a slow focusing and is really inconvenient to shoot. With this kind of focusing, I don't need any lens, even for nothing.

      Arkady usually estimates the focusing speed by the speed of the run from mdf to infinity (with the lid closed). What you are talking about is focusing tenacity and here with different cameras there will be different results
