Cant afford the awesome new Nikon 200-400 FL… You’re not alone…
In this video I’m out on the coast photographing Grey seals and due to the fact my gear is in for a service with NPS It was a great opportunity to pick up and share my thoughts on what I feel is one BEST VALUE lenses for Nikon wildlife photographers. The 300 f4 AF-s.
I know that there is a new one out… The 300 f4 PF that’s lighter and has VR, but it is £1400… and that for many is far from budget!
That’s why the older 300 f4 AF-s model, that can easily be found secondhand for around £400 is a top quality consideration for those on a budget, especially as it will pair nicely with both DX and FX cameras, making it a perfect investment lens!
This is the lens I used for my first few years as a pro. Today, even with the latest cameras and sensors I still rate it as a top value bit of glass!
