Nikon AF-S 300mm f/4E PF ED VR: Aperture Series 'Oak Tree at Dusk'

Nikon 300mm f/4E PF ED VR

Get Nikon 300mm f/4E PF ED VR at B&H Photo.

Following the Looped Oil Pipes aperture series at closer distance and the Oil Field Cogeneration Plant series at far distance, this series evaluates the Nikon 300mm f/4E PF at medium distance.

Nikon AF-S 300mm f/4E PF ED VR Aperture Series: Oak Tree at Dusk

Series includes entire-frame images up to 24 megapixels and large crops, from f/4 - f/11.

It’s not easy to shoot a scene like this with a 300mm lens! Even the curvature of the tree trunk raises the issue of where to focus, let alone the near-to-far spread of the branches. Depth of field is not found in abundance, even at f/11.
