Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55 - 300 mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens (High Power Zoom Lens) Price: Rs.22989

After you buy your favourite digital single lens reflex camera kit, the next step would be to buy a zoom lens. The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens is a high power zoom lens which serves all your photographic requirements. This Nikon product is a super-telephoto zoom lens with 5.5x magnification. This Nikon zoom lens delivers top quality images that you can add to your archives.

This Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR lens is constructed carefully with 17 elements in 11 groups to give optimal photographic results. This construction also features 2 ED lens elements (glasses) that are used for superior chromatic aberration compensation. The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is the first interchangeable lens to utilize High Refractive Index (HRI) lens elements which allow more compact and lightweight design.

The HRI lens elements also render an excellent performance with a refractive index of 2.0 or higher and the use of these elements deliver the same advantages as multiple elements made of standard optical glass. As this single lens element also compensates for focal plane curvature and spherical aberration, the lens could be made smaller and lighter and still offer 5.5x magnification and support the super-telephoto shooting up to 300 mm.

Performance

The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens gives you a brilliant contrast and sharp rendering throughout the entire frame even at the maximum aperture. The maximum viewing angle of Nikon lens is 28° 50'. The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens is specially designed to suit all the Nikon digital single lens reflex cameras.

The built-in Vibration Reduction (VR II) of the lens gives shake compensation equivalent to a shutter speed increase of approximately four steps. The advantages of the Vibration Reduction are best demonstrated with super-telephoto shooting and this feature also stabilises the view through the viewfinder of the camera for simpler focusing. The maximum focal length of the lens is 300 mm and the minimum focal length is 55 mm.

The aperture of the Nikon NIKKOR lens with maximum focal length is 5.6 and the aperture with minimum focal length is 4.5. The minimum f/stop for the lens is f/22-29. The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens measures approximately 76.5 mm x 123 mm in diameter and length. The Nikon lens has a classy body and weighs 530 g. The maximum reproduction ratio of the Nikon AF-S DX lens is 0.28x to achieve efficient results.

Features

The filter attachment size of the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens is 58 mm. This filter attachment is the front end of your lens where you can attach different kind of filters. You can create your own image according to your mood at that situation. For instance, if you have to create a night effect in day light, then you can attach a dark filter to it.

The A and M button on the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens help you to choose between the automatic focus and manual focus. The closest focusing distance of the Nikon NIKKOR lens is 1.4 m for you to closely capture the best moments with your beloved ones. The lens cap of the Nikon lens has a Snap-on mechanism where you can conveniently attach and remove the cap during your photography sessions.

You can nicely capture your child sleeping in peace with the help of the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) in the Nikon lens which silently does the autofocusing without waking up your child from sleep. The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens is appropriate for photography in the fields of sports, wildlife, fashion and nature.

THE BEST for an amateur

If you are an amateur and have the money, blindly go for this lens. Yes I know you may be tempted by cheaper offerings from Tamron, Sigma or even the uber cheap Nikon AF 70-300, but if you can afford, this is the best for an amateur. I have personally used both the Tamron and Sigma, 70-300 variants for more than a month (borrowed from friends). What I sorely missed in them is the VR. If you cross 200, its absolutely impossible to take handheld pictures with them. Besides, after crossing 200, pictures become visibly soft, specially at the corners. Colour fringing is pretty evident in both of them. Compared to them, this lens is absolutely a pleasure to use. Even at 300 with lens wide open (at the largest aperture), there is minimal softness. Colour fringing is there but its negligible. And the VR-II system of the lens is absolutely wonderful. I got pretty decent handheld images at 300mm, even at a relatively lower shutter speed (1/30th of a second) at dimming light.

Having said that, there are a couple of weak points in this lens.

1. The minimum focusing distance is 1.4 meters, almost 5 feet. So macro shots are ruled out.
2. Focusing is tad slow. Focus hunts in low light conditions.

Not much of a con out there. The pros far outweigh the cons . So that's my review. Go for it, you won't regret your investment. And if you have even more money to spend, go for the Nikon 70-300mm. Its the best entry- level consumer lens that you can get.

(For you folks out there who can't decide between the Tamron 70-300mm and Sigma 70-300mm, my advice it go for Tamron. Its a tad better. )

Its the practical lens to own

I have purchased this lens from US on Thanksgiving day. It comes with 1 year world wide warranty 4 years Limited US warranty. This lens is for photographers who can't afford the costly 70-300mm FX lens. I have a combination of 18-55mm VR 55-300mm VRII for my Nikon D5100.

This is the most practical combination one can have for casual clicking.

Good Lens to have

I have been using the 55-300 along with my standard 18-55mm Nikkor, and must say its a very good combo. I have used it for some wildlife photography and the results are definitely more than satisfactory. Its an awesome lens and there is no 2nd thoughts about it.
The VR too is a must have, as per me. This really reduces the use of a tripod plus other advantages, shell out a bit more for the VR variant, if given a choice.

One combo would be to have one 18-55 and a 55-300/70-300. Another choice would be to go for one single, the awesome, 18-200mm. But it all boils down to your budget and that extra 100mm of range. Its your choice.

A very Good Lense

I've been using this lense for about an year now. i'm highly satisfied with the performance and the picture quality of this lens. Had purchased it from US. I used this lense for some portrait pics, pics in a marriage.. an they were really good. the lens is stable, picture quality is good and comparatively, pretty fast at auto focus. Photos come really good and distinct colors when shooting both indoor and outdoor..

An Excellent Buy for Budding Photographers

I'm using Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm lens, with which I'm limited to short range in terms of Zoom. So I bought 55-300 from Nikon, keeping an idea that I could have range from 18-300(18-55 & 55-300). It's rightly priced for the kind of quality it gives. My expectations were far exceeded with this lens. The sharpness above 250mm is bit disappointing but with regular practice one can overcome that. I faced that problem initially and now I'm feeling far better with the kind of sharpness I'm able to achieve through this lens. One should have good amount of experience in working with zoom lens to extract the best from this 55-300mm lens. Don't expect to get good shots right from the word go, give a bit of practice and I'm sure you will be in love with this product. Good Luck!!!
