This review is from: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Lens (Camera)
Although I didn't buy my Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Lens through Amazon (where most my online shopping is done), I felt this was the best place to put a review.
I bought this lens to compliment my Nikon D40 with kit lens, and it compliments it superbly. The quality of image at 300mm focal zoom is outstanding, probably due largely to the Vibration Reduction.
After debating between the 55-200mm and 55-300mm models, I'm really pleased with choosing this model, especially with the extra focus and the fact it wasn't substantially more expensive.
One small word of "warning" for anyone with a D40 or D3000 with kit lens looking to buy this, it is (inevitably) a bit fair larger than the kit lens, so you may want to consider this when thinking about your size of bag, or wanting to keep having your DSLR as a "carry-around" model. However it's not exactly massive and it's relatively light.
Top, top lens.
