Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon 55-200MM F/4-5.6 AF-S VR DX Black Lens (Camera)
I should explain that I bought this as a possible replacement for my previous Sigma, an 18-200mm jobbie that had been with me for some time now dating back to my D3000 prior to its soaking during a motor racing meeting I was covering. On the plus side, this 55-200mm lens is a lot less bulky than some of the larger Sigma lenses I used prior to getting the 18-200mm lens but it suffers the same awkward problems that those older lenses did when it came to close up work. In other words it's not bad for working across the circuit but not really any good for winners trophy awards.
In other words, it's not really an all-purpose lens but isn't bad for longer shots. Back to the old 18-200mm for now until I find something else, I suspect.
