    I mainly shoot Model RC Airplanes, but I had a chance to try out my 70-300 at the Cleveland Airshow last weekend (I know, more air show pictures). I'm pretty happy with this affordable lens attached to my D300... comments appreciated


    Good detail

    A little sharper would have been nice - but my own Vapor Cone shot!

    Stopped the prop, but pretty sharp for a "cheap" lens

    Not matter how many I times I see them...

  2. Nice shots man. I still haven't gotten around to editing my shots from Thunder Over The Boardwalk in Atlantic city.

    I do agree with you that this may not be pro glass but to have that range of focal length in a relatively small, light and inexpensive package is pretty astounding.
     
  3. Once again shots such as yours do that lens justice

    Those are nice shots. The Blue Angels were here this week and I never even knew about it:mad:

    Those are some great looking shots! alittle slower shutter speed will get you some prop blur.

  8. Great shots! Thanks for sharing.
     
  9. Wow. That's way better than I did with my Tamron 28-300VC.
    well done!

    Nice shots! I like the #3 the most. Is that the VR version?
