Nikkor 55-300 F: 4.5-5.6
This image was shot at 300mm, F:9 @ 1/320 ISO 320. It was shot with a tripod but was still fighting about a 4-5 mph breeze. I think it is a good indication of the lens's performance. I will others to this thread as I continue to explore the full gamut of mm's, aperture and shutter combinations.
What the original shot looked like and the amount of cropping necessary...and it still held a pretty decent sharpness to the image.
One more shot at a distance of about 25 feet (8.5 meters +/-) F: 6.3 @ 1/1000 Focal Length 0f 138mm ISO 100
