Do i need to turn off VR when taking panning shots? I tried today with some airplanes and they are all a little blurry. But the VR was on. Not sure if my technique needs work or the VR is to strong.

I use BBF with AI Servo nd leave VR on. Seams to work very well for me.

I think part of my problem is to slow a shutter. I hate using high iso. I might try highr on my next outing just to get a proper shutter. And see what happens

Glad I am seeing some updates here....

One thing I really don't like about this lens is that AF seems to hunt at the long end when the max aperture changes to f5.6 AND subjects are lit with intense lighting. I just shot an evening bike race with a nice golden sunset for the ambient. Around 240mm to 300mm, the AF was hunting and racking back and fore. I noticed the same issue too shooting during the mid day with a bright high noon sun. Ironically, I don't get that when the lighting condition is crappy....LOL... This only happens when the light is reflecting off the subjects at a particular angle...

Overall...not a bad lens for $300 or under.....although I do make some money shoot bike races but not enough to justify spending over $1k for the Nikon 70-200vr or the 80-400 vr II...This lens will do....

Every once in awhile you get a nice sharp 300mm shot! I try to usually not go past 250 if I can help it. Sometimes you have no choice! Either that or f/13 is the sweet spot for this lens? I'll have to test that theory someday. I was in Tv mode waiting for him to fire up the engine and start getting the prop blur. f/13 is what the camera chose for an aperture.

300mm is good for closeups.

Just sold this lens for $200. For that price it's a super sweet bargain. This was my favorite image I took with that lens. Didn't use it much but I was able to capture some nice memories with it.

Got the lens today and only got a chance to try it for a while. Not the best conditions, dull and cloudy, but i'm impressed at how the lens handled it. For a cheap lens it is quality.
