Nikon’s Latest 300mm f/4E PF ED VR is a Compact, Bargain-priced Powerhouse Lens

I’ve been a Nikon shooter for the past 25 years and shoot a lot of motorsport events, so my “go-to” lenses are the 80-200mm f/2.8 and the 300mm f/4, both from Nikon. Neither of these lenses have vibration reduction technology, but they have metallic bodies and are built like tanks. My 300mm f/4 lens is the model from two generations ago that I bought on eBay many years ago. It’s a testament to Nikon’s build quality that it still works great and has survived a couple of drops at the race track. I never thought the last generation version of the lens was worth upgrading too, but I may be ready to spend a couple grand on Nikon’s latest 300mm f/4 lens, which is significantly improved over its predecessors.
