New Nikon 300mm 2.8

In prep for a big job next week, we are reviewing and replacing some of our gear this week…  Today, we picked up what is probably my all time favorite lens.  The Nikon 300mm 2.8.

Our old lens was pretty knackered and was just hanging on.  The new iteration has Nikon’s “Vibration Reduction” or VR which basically gives you 3-4 stops worth of camera-shake compensation.  It’s pretty cool.  Since the campaign we are shooting is primarily all natural light, having all of the lenses in our bag VR will be a big boon.
