Wow! Great to see that the comparison has been useful! Thank you all for your kind words - much appreciated!Philjo -
Yes the lighting was a bit harsh and definitely wasn't what I would call "ideal". But given those conditions, the 75-300 was definitely much better in the low light than the G lens. It's difficult to say that the non-G lens is better in the low light, but it did better than the G lens in these conditions. I've also read somewhere else that the G lens isn't that great in low light conditions (don't quote me on that though!!)David-Stallard -
I absolutely love your pictures! A huge inspiration! I had a look at a 70-400G at the same time to reviewing these two lenses... what a monster it is! Ronnie_Space -
Although the Jessops price is brilliant compared to the others, but it was still a lot of money at the end of the day. That's why I went into Jessops to see for myself what the real difference was between the two lenses. To say that the G lens was a LOT better than I thought it would be, is an understatement. To be honest, it wasn't the most ideal of photo-taking-situations but the colour and clarity gave me a good idea.
The G lens outside of the store is phenomenal to say the least, completely blew me away! Here's a sample I shot the other day using the 70-300G lens:
So, did I buy the lens.... well.... all will be revealed soon!
