Good Value and Very Useful.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens (Camera)
Now this lens has come down a bit in price, it almost an essential purchase for anyone with a Nikon D3200 Digital SLR Camera or similar.
Being a genuine Nikon lens with autofocus and VR to deal with shake; you can be sure you are getting all the features that your Nikon DSLR can provide with something like this. In use it feels a bit heavier and thicker than the Nikon 55-200MM F/4-5.6 AF-S VR DX Black Lens which I have used before. But it's not too heavy and the extra zoom capacity makes it very useful for things like nature photography, where you can't get that close to the subject.
This comes with comprehensive instructions, a useful hood and soft pouch for carrying - best used in a camera bag. Having tried this out, the results have been very pleasing and if there are faults, then as others have said here - most people won't notice them and this is about as good as it gets for the hobby photographer on a budget. I have added a few shots taken of fast-moving windsurfers at a fair distance away and the shots have been very clear.
The lens is easy to fit and you can get shooting straight away with no problems - making any package built around a Nikon DSLR very versatile. Highly recommended.
