    Superb Lens!! Worth a buy!

    Bought this 55-300 VR Lens from Flipkart. This is an amazing product from Nikon for all amateur Nikonians! 1. Superb picture quality indoor or outdoor. 2. Brilliant results for Portrait. 3. Silent, Fast Auto Focus. 4. VR (VR stands for Vibration Reduction) Lens. 5. Very good built 6. Lens bag provided 7. Both 'Manual' & 'Auto' focus functions with VR 'On' & 'Off' options Pros: 1. Cannot capture from close proximity as it is 55-300 mm lens! So not advised to use in small gatherings and private parties! Note: Use a tripod and a remote for slow shutter speed or while taking tele-zoom snaps for 'shake-free' snaps! Thank you Flipkart for superb packing! I use it with D5100 & I love it :)

    55-300 review

    I purchased this lens a month ago from Flipkart. Delivery was very good and I received my lens well packed and undamaged. Those who want to purchase this lens, please remember that this is not an all purpose zoom lens & this is not a pro lens. This lens works best and gives amazing photos in bright light. Taking handheld photos in low light conditions is difficult & sometimes not possible at all. Ofcourse you can solve this problem by using tripod & remote shutter release. Increasing ISO value is not a good solution since beyond ISO 800, pictures will have substantial amount of noise & it will require postprocessing in some software. Lens gives excellent photographs in 55-200mm range wide open. 200-300mm will give you good photographs, but not always. In this rage, lens loses its sharpness and images become somewhat soft. This is not a very fast lens. So photographing moving objects in low light conditions will not be possible. After 200mm, lens shows substantial signs of chromatic aberration (CA) as the object you are focusing on becomes smaller. e.g. You will get less or no CA if you photographs a building, but if you take photo of a bird at same distance & focal length, then you will notice signs of CA. This lens is not meant for macro photography. Minimum focus distance for this lens is substantially higher than true macro lenses. Hence crop becomes a must. VRII is good. This is a DX format lens. So you can not use it with FX format sensors, even though both format cameras have same F-mount. If you are planning to upgrade to FX body in future, then go for 70-300 instead. If used with FX sensor, then images will have vignetting. Autofocus is slower than my expectations. There is no auto manual override over autfocus. So you have to fiddle with A/M button to change from autofocus to manual focus. This is not a headache as long as you are not doing macro photography of moving objects. After 135mm, you will notice slight signs of distortion, but this is not a concern at all and is okay for this family of lenses. Build quality of the lens is good, esp. since this lens has metal mount, so it will stand good wear and tear. 55-200 lens has a plastic mount and it wears down easily if lenses are interchanged regularly. So with metal mount, this lens is good. Using manual focus is bit harder and focus ring is at a bit odd location. But you can overcome this by practice. Just from some tests I did with this lens, i found out that at full 300mm focus, good images are produced beyond shutter speed of 1/60 or faster. Slower than 1/60 and images can even be unusable sometimes. But all in all, this lens is very good at this price point. Do buy it. You will love the images it produces. I hope my review gives you an unbiased idea about how the lens is and helps you make your choice.

    Good Lens to have

    I have been using the 55-300 along with my standard 18-55mm Nikkor, and must say its a very good combo. I have used it for some wildlife photography and the results are definitely more than satisfactory. Its an awesome lens and there is no 2nd thoughts about it. The VR too is a must have, as per me. This really reduces the use of a tripod plus other advantages, shell out a bit more for the VR variant, if given a choice. One combo would be to have one 18-55 and a 55-300/70-300. Another choice would be to go for one single, the awesome, 18-200mm. But it all boils down to your budget and that extra 100mm of range. Its your choice.
