I upgraded tonext day shipping and got it 18 hours later - quick service. Thanks Amazon!But now on to the real review...This lens is fantastic - especially for $399. My first concern was whether it not it had a plastic ormetal mount since some DX lenses in this price range have plastic. I even contacted Nikon and
  • 4. they couldnt (or wouldnt) tell me. Well, I was really pleased to see that it does have a metalmount. It has a nice solid feel to it. The zoom movement is smooth and I havent had anyproblem with lens creep when Im aiming it downward. Even when I point the camera downwardand shake it, it wont creep.Im just beginning to get into testing it but my preliminary pictures are coming out nice - reallynice. The sharpness is amazing and the lens produces a very nice bokeh. I posted the image ofthe dragonfly with the chicken wire background (see the customer uploads) Check out the detailin the wings. That shot says it all. It was HAND HELD and cranked all the way out to 300mm.The original image is great but a lot of the detail was lost with the upload to Amazon. But - nonethe less - its still pretty sharp. The auto focus on this lens is fast, smooth, quiet and veryaccurate. It locked right in on the subject. It was set on aperture priority at f/8 1/500sec for theshot that I posted here (shot with a D-90).The VR on this lens is great. The detail I get with hand-helds just amazes me. It has NikonsVRII image stabilization and it even has a tripod detection mode that reduces any vibration fromshutter release when its on a tripod.Colors are rendered accurately and the contrast is pretty sharp even at the max aperture. The lensis compact for a 300mm and its lighter than my AF-S DX 18-200mm which I use as my regularwalk-around. Im sure the new 55-300 will be used as my walk around pretty frequently also.All in all for an APS-C lens, Nikon did a great job with this one - especially for the price. Its awelcome addition to the DX line and Im really glad I have one in my gear bag.269 of 279 people found the following review helpful.Very good lens for the priceBy Avi ShresthaPros:+ Excellent Image Quality+ Solid build with metal mount+ Significantly better in all ways than the Nikon 55-200mm VRCons:- Slight long (but thats expected for a telephoto like this)Ive owned (and subsequently got rid of) the Nikon 55-200mm and Sigma 18-250 OS. This lensbeats them both significantly. The Sigma 18-250 OS was pretty nice when I needed to take onlyone lens with me, but that situation is rare.I hardly shoot telephoto, but when I do, Im glad I can turn to this new Nikon 55-300mm VRIIlens. Low light focus hunts a little bit, but thats expected - and its significantly better than theSigma at equivalent low light.This lens is much better than the older Nikon 55-200mm VR often sold as part of the kit. Thatlens feels like a toy with a plastic mount and cheap plastic feel. This lens has a much better build
  • 5. quality. Consequently, its also more expensive.If youre debating about the Nikon 55-200mm vs. this lens, I highly recommend you get this lens.Ive been very happy with it.170 of 179 people found the following review helpful.Skip the 55-200mm VR and get this!By Emko SanI know its twice as much but its well worth it. I took about 150 shots with it this weekend andwas blown away. Bokeh is beautiful and it is sharp from 55-300mm. I had the 55-200mm VRand this is a significant step up. Its more solidly built and the results are excellent. Its a hugelens, and heavy, but the shots speak for themselves. Great, great lens!See all 352 customer reviews...My Associates Store | Shopping Cart Browse by CategoryPatio Furniture SetsCamera & Photo Similar ItemsNikon DSLR Starter Kit with Niko...Too low to displayNikon - 58mm Filter NC$32.9552MM Professional Lens Accessory...$13.95 Accessories
