I hope to obtain another sample of this lens, because its behavior is just not in keeping with one can expect from a super telephoto eg a “bad sample”, the first I’ve ever experienced for a super telephoto. It is very surprising.

Assuming the 300/2.8 delivers an image at f/2.8 like it does at f/4 (and this would be expected), it should be a very satisfying choice for anyone needing f/2.8 in a 300mm.

Regrettably the bad sample problem also precluded useful findings about the Nikon 2X teleconverter.

I hope to obtain another sample to finish this review.
