5.0 out of 5 stars Nikon Quality in a great Auto-Focus Lens., 25 Mar. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon 55-200MM F/4-5.6 AF-S VR DX Black Lens (Camera)
After doing a bit of research as to the best lenses to get for my Nikon D3100 18-55vr Kit, I settled on this one as the best starter; being reasonable in terms of value and having all the best features of the Nikon lenses.

So there are a few cheaper options among other brands, but often there was no guarantee that the auto-focus would work and having invested in Nikon, this seems to be the sensible option.

I must say that I found it very easy to get started and was out taking pictures very shortly after getting the lens - changing from the kit lens is intuitively simple. So after having spent a while now geting familiar with the D3100, it was no different using this lens.

I was pleasantly surprised at how light it still feels and is not in any way uncomfortable. I felt that this lens gave me good options for framing shots and I have been very happy with the results. Picture qualty is sharp and clear - everything you would expect from a Nikon lens and I couldn't fault it.

In use, the VR is noticable when it kicks in - but there was no blurring on the images and the autofocus works just as well as with the kit lens, which makes the transition between lenses, seamless.

Overall this has been a very good purchase and I am very happy with the quality and features. It also includes a hood and carry bag, plus a good level of documentation
