Nikon’s first all-in-one full-framer.
With a massive 10.7X range that reaches supertele on DSLRs with APS-C-sized sensors, full-frame 28–300mm zooms handle nearly every photo genre: wildlife, portraits, landscapes, even close-ups. The category runs from Canon’s f/3.5–5.6L ($2,420, street) to Sigma’s f/3.5–6.3 ($300, street). Between the extremes lie Tamron’s f/3.5–5.6 ($600, street) and now this Nikon f/3.5–5.6 ($1,030, street). Yet despite the wide variation in price, features, and build, all these current models turned in fairly similar optical performances in our Test Lab.
