Using this lens with an D3300 for wildlife photography and having difficulty getting sharp bird photos, especially at 300mm. I understand from reviews that the Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E VR AF-P lens focuses quicker for this type of work. Would this lens focus faster on a body with more auto focus po...see moreof the reviewer's review

Hello there, I am a young nature photographer who has used this lens for an entire year. It has been quite a good lens, I love how sharp the focus can get and it has captured some tricky birds in flight. The vibration reduction really, really helps get the clarity of the photographs, and it focuses ...see moreof the reviewer's review

The versatility of this lens is remarkable. Even with a minimum focus distance of 4.6 feet, the long focal length allows me to use it for sharp macro photography. The vibration reduction system enables handheld shots even at 300mm in less than bright light. I've used this lens on my D7200 as well as...see moreof the reviewer's review

Both times NIKON USA did a full PM on ...see moreof the reviewer's review
