Top Customer Reviews
Good focal length for mid-range nature photography.
Reasonably fast (f/5.6 at 200-300) for a cheap lens
Sharp under 200mm
Good build quality
slightly soft over 200mm (can be rectified by stopping down to around f/8-f/11) or in CS3 post-production
Some noticable cyan chromatic abberation
The lens for the price is outstanding (£89), the build on it is superb, the lens hood is sturdy enough to take a good few knocks when out on trails or at events.
It will work in the rain, I've had it out in numerous weather conditions and it still works.
When it has been swapped for another lens, it really doesn't take that much room in the bag (I use the Lowepro Vertex 300 AW Photo/ 17" Notebook Backpack for Digital SLR & 6-8 lenses - Black for hiking/sports and the AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR Cameras and Accessories Black backpack for biking) and I can fit it in the 18-55mm space no bother (I reverse the lens hood on it so it takes up less space and to give it some protection from bumps)
The lens hood clips in to place very securely so you know that it won't slide off unlike my Nikon 55-200MM F4 - 5.6G AF-S DX Lens - Black which falls off from time to time.
The macro mode is activated when the lens is in the range of 180mm and 300mm, there is a slider on the lens itself for this, this too is very snug and won't go on by accident.
Macro mode as a distance of 3.1ft for its closest focusing, but I reckon a few extension tubes would increase that.
The grips feel really well made and are easy to use while wearing gloves.
Let me know if this review was useful in your decision or if you have any questions about it.
Does NOT win the title for the best image's sharpness.
Does NOT win the title for the best macro quality.
Does win the race for the best ALL in ONE value lens.
I am totally happy with this lens, its cheap and effective. Its not the best out there as i said- you should not expect a supreme lens with this price any way!-.
Its effective, nice photos, good macro feature, and good built quality.
I would recommended to any one who is a beginner -like me- and want to do some practice on different aspects of photography (macro and telephoto)before moving on to the serious part where you have to pay at least double the amount for only one of the previous features.
All in all:
Image quality: 3.75/5
Focusing: 3.5/5 (noisy and slow)
Macro feature: 3.75/5
A Pro? well, you should not be looking at this lens any way!
Amazon's provided their usual excellent service as always, and even when the dispatch company lost my first lens, Amazon express shipped a replacement which arrived in time for my trip away - very well done Amazon!
For the shots I have taken, I have been more than happy with.Used quite a lot on a tripod for macro type shots(in macro mode) and the colours and sharpness have been excellent.Very good in high contrast situations - e.g. - white/purple/yellow/pink flowers on a solid black background(see images) with no noticeable chromatic aberration(the bright colours against a solid black background distorting at the edges - just google the phrase if unsure)
Because of the finished product, I would not say the 'unsure' AF is so much of a Major letdown, just something you need to workaround and because such good results are attainable from such a budget priced lens - very forgivable. You could even say your getting a new photographic skill taught to you as part of the package!(although that might be a tiny bit over-complementing)
As for the lack of 'VR' - vibration reduction, or any kind of image stabilization, I do own a Nikon 55-200mm lens with VR, and do find myself able to use that lens in more general situations, but in my opinion at zooms of 200mm and above - you really need a tripod to be sure anyway.Read more ›
