Additional information:

The lens has been appreciated by travelers and wild life hunters. It is also fit for shooting sporting events in good lighting conditions.

The Nikon 70-300 mm f/ 4.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor pros:

Manufacturers has equipped the lens with a very decent system of Vibration Reduction, which enables shooting telephoto subjects without a tripod. The system stabilizes images reducing image blur and providing the equivalent of shooting at shutter speeds  up to four stops faster than ordinary lenses (according to the performance testing, carried out by Nikon).

The 9-blade rounded aperture make subjects in out-of-focus zones blur, which creates natural and harmonious background.
