      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    55-300 review

    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 val...

    Superb Lens!! Worth a buy!

    Bought this 55-300 VR Lens from Flipkart.
    This is an amazing product from Nikon for all amateur Nikonians!

    1. Superb picture quality indoor or outdoor.
    2. Brilliant results for Portrait.
    3. Silent, Fast Auto Focus.
    4. VR (VR stands for Vibration Reduction) Lens.
    5. Very good built
    6. Lens bag provided
    7. Both 'Manual' & 'Auto' focus functions with VR 'On' & 'Off' options

    1. Cannot capture from close proximity as it is 55-300 mm lens! So not advised to use in small gatherings and priv...

    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...

    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, ...

    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 t...

    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..

    Awesome sharp focus

    Nikon 55-300mm is currently the cheapest way to get to true 300mm focal length in Nikon’s current line of lenses, with a little more shorter range to work with than the Nikon 70-300mm VR lens.

    It is an ideal lens to be used for family events and vacations to capture distant subjects, and the use of Vibration Reduction (VR) technology makes it easier to get sharp photographs at slower shutter speeds, especially when shooting at 300mm.

    When it comes to AF, the 55-300mm zoom is surprisingly s...
