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.

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. )

I purchased this lens a month ago from Flipkart. Delivery was very good and I received my lens well packed and undamaged.
Those who want to purchase this lens, please remember that this is not an all purpose zoom lens & this is not a pro lens.
This lens works best and gives amazing photos in bright light. Taking handheld photos in low light conditions is difficult & sometimes not possible at all.

I purchased this lens a month ago from Flipkart. Delivery was very good and I received my lens well packed and undamaged.
Those who want to purchase this lens, please remember that this is not an all purpose zoom lens & this is not a pro lens.
This lens works best and gives amazing photos in bright light. Taking handheld photos in low light conditions is difficult & sometimes not possible at all. Ofcourse you can solve this problem by using tripod & remote shutter release. Increasing ISO value is not a good solution since beyond ISO 800, pictures will have substantial amount of noise & it will require postprocessing in some software.
Lens gives excellent photographs in 55-200mm range wide open. 200-300mm will give you good photographs, but not always. In this rage, lens loses its sharpness and images become somewhat soft.
This is not a very fast lens. So photographing moving objects in low light conditions will not be possible.
After 200mm, lens shows substantial signs of chromatic aberration (CA) as the object you are focusing on becomes smaller. e.g. You will get less or no CA if you photographs a building, but if you take photo of a bird at same distance & focal length, then you will notice signs of CA.
This lens is not meant for macro photography. Minimum focus distance for this lens is substantially higher than true macro lenses. Hence crop becomes a must.
VRII is good.
This is a DX format lens. So you can not use it with FX format sensors, even though both format cameras have same F-mount. If you are planning to upgrade to FX body in future, then go for 70-300 instead. If used with FX sensor, then images will have vignetting.
Autofocus is slower than my expectations. There is no auto manual override over autfocus. So you have to fiddle with A/M button to change from autofocus to manual focus. This is not a headache as long as you are not doing macro photography of moving objects.
After 135mm, you will notice slight signs of distortion, but this is not a concern at all and is okay for this family of lenses.
Build quality of the lens is good, esp. since this lens has metal mount, so it will stand good wear and tear. 55-200 lens has a plastic mount and it wears down easily if lenses are interchanged regularly. So with metal mount, this lens is good.
Using manual focus is bit harder and focus ring is at a bit odd location. But you can overcome this by practice.
Just from some tests I did with this lens, i found out that at full 300mm focus, good images are produced beyond shutter speed of 1/60 or faster. Slower than 1/60 and images can even be unusable sometimes.
But all in all, this lens is very good at this price point. Do buy it. You will love the images it produces. I hope my review gives you an unbiased idea about how the lens is and helps you make your choice.

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...

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!!!

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.

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..
