Decent lens for folks on a tight budget.

I bought this lens from Flipkart for my D90 about 5 months ago and have been using it intermittently. First, the autofocus with the D90 internal motor is good in daylight. Towards late evening if you try to take a picture of a crow on a nearby tree, the autofocus simply hunts. As there is no VR, you essentially get what you paid for. Without tripod and below 1/300th of a sec shutter speed, the pictures clicked with even the slightest of camerashake are as as good as worthless. Moreover the gl...

A totally old school VFM lens.

Purchased this lens for my Nikon D3200 after thorough search from different sources. I was aware of majority of cons. So I was expecting a very bad bad lens. But, I took the risk of purchasing this lens and I'm one HAPPY CUSTOMER.
Behind the scene :This Person was using his 18-55 for nearly all purpose. The itch started to upgrade. The nearest competitor was Tamron 70-300mm which has a very high rating. In Nikon, its counter part with VR costs in the tune of 20k, which this person and his wif...

Very poor by Nikon's standards!

I bought this lens sometime back to go with my Nikon D3100. Though Flipkart delivered the item in good time, and am happy with the service of Flipkart, I am far from satisfied with the product itself.
First of all, if one has to use this lens one has to have steady hands like an expert marksman. It is practically impossible to shoot good quality pictures with this lens- even with a tripod. At 70 mm perhaps one can get a decent shot.

Since it doesn't have auto focus, it is useless in most cas...

Great lens for SLR beginers

Got the lens within 2 days of ordering it. It is a great lens for beginners and intermediates. I bought this lens as a spare lens for shooting birds. It does not have VR . I know a lot of people who complain that not having VR on a tele-photo lens is a bad idea. However VR I personally feel is for video mode and does only a semi-decent job for photos. It is best I beleive to long distance photos with a tripod whether you have VR or not.

Great Lense..!!

I got the lense in less than 2 days well packed. Opened the package to see that the lense is "FULL BLACK" (which i wanted anyways), but not Blabk & White as mentioned on the add for the product..

Apart from that it is an amazing lense. If you are a beginner that i would not suggest it as it is a manual lense without the focusing motor. If you are quick enough to zoon in & out & focus that 'NOTHING LIKE IT'..

Overall good service by FLIPCART as always, good product for the price..

Value for money!

I bought this lens in 2011 and I'm writing this review as a tribute to this lens! This is my first telephoto and I'm very more than happy with this lens. I also perfected my manual focus skills with this lens.

This lens performs really well in bright outdoors and also in properly illuminated indoors. Since the aperture range starts at 4 and at 300mm it is 5.6, light would always be an issue. However I've taken many event and stage photographs with this lens by cranking up the ISO and the res...

Nice Lens for it's price!!

I got this a few weeks back and it got all what i expected, except the auto focus wont work for my Nikon D3100. but if you want to extend the capability for your DSLR with keeping your budget in mind, This is the good choice.

Thanks to FlipKart which has made our online shopping easy n risk free. best online store in India. Hope to see bit more product in near future.

Good option if you are Pro with lens handling

I bought this lens last year, December, and using it quite frequently with my D3000 and quite satisfied. But it is not an good option if you are not able to adjust your focus properly. It does not have auto focus motor hence training the focus on long shots and full zoom is tricky thing. Really good for clicking wildlife, birds and distant shots. But not advisable for beginners... Take care before buying if you have problems with focusing your subject!!
Happy Clicking...

for Nikon D3200 and D5100, D5200 users

this lens cannot auto focus (on the camera without a built in motor), moreover doesnt have VR.
So add few more bucks and go for the Sigma or Tamron 70-300mm which have an internal motor(not so great motor but something is better than nothing).
The Sigma and Tamron do not have VR too.
Since we are talking abt cheaper lenses, comparing the glass quality between Nikkor, Sigma and Tamron, even if we come to a conclusion is absurd i think.
Its good to have a zoom lens but requires more money fo...

Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70 - 300 mm f/4-5.6G (4.3x) Lens

Its a great mod range zoom lems for a very affordable proce. Great for beginners in serious photography and photography enthousiasts. However I would not rate the lens as a professional class equipment because I feel the quality of output could improve further, nevertheless its good for the proice you pay for the lens. When zooming out full range please use a tripod t avoid image stability errors. Goes will with the Nikon D5100. Its a great second lens. For enthusiasts I would recommend 18/55...
