"RE: 70-300 VR lens"

After using the 70-300 on three different scenarios, all I can say is WOW!

1. Theater school play - yes, it was kindergarden school, but it took place in a real theatre. With both my kids on stage, scarce on light, the 70-300 delivered enough results to do a passable job in difficult circumstances. F5.6 is it's main limitation, but VR and high ISOs got the event covered. Auto-focus performance was remarkable, and the lens captured more detail than the 6400 ISO on the body could resolve.

2. Kid's party, indoor, bounce flash - from across the room, bouncing the SB-700 on the white ceiling and working mostly at f8, all the kids got fantastic candid portraits. Simply outstanding results!

3. Surf afternoon - Sun was midway down through the sky, making the waves glow as they bursted - or the surfers bursted through them. Even at a distance, the results were fine. Frozen drops of water and dynamic gestures, very fine indeed.

Great images, at a great value on a practical package. I can fit all my prime lens in a smalish camera bag (Domke F6), plus the 70-300 VR, the speedlight and the gripped D7K. What more can one ask?

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.
