  • Buying Guide: Camera Lens

    Camera lenses play a pivotal role in image capture to the extent that an average camera with a good lens will take better photos than a high-end camera with a mediocre lens.

nikon af-s dx 55-300mm f45-56g ed vr camera lens is rated 4.3964 out of 5 by 111.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! Took this little baby out on the water right after I bought if for some sailboat racing photography and was very happy with the results. Even in lower light it performed very well. I pumped the ISO up a little to insure that the shutter speed would stop the action. But the results were dazzling, to be honest. Resolution as sharp as a tack. The autofocus tended to 'hunt' a litte from time to time. But I could live with that. Light weight. Ergonomics just fine. And I guess that the Vibration Reduction was working well as could be expected, considering that I was shooting from a small boat aiming a larger boats moving pretty fast. Nice lens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I purchased this lens after reading as many reviews as possible. So I was not dissapointed in what I got, for the price. This is what I suspected, a cheap Nikon lens. The only real flaw in the lens is the inability to focus at infinity. The lens is made with less expensive materials (except for the lenses) and the distance indicator is not present, which is not a real problem. It does take a bit of time to focus, but that time can be reduced by focusing on something close, then move to the object you want to focus on. I recommended this product, but you should only purchase this lens if it is all you can afford, or are willing to accept a it's short comings

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the $70.00 savings... Ordered this lens for my D5200, and immediately was disappointed with the focusing and the sharpness of the pictures at higher zooms. I had read that the 70-300vr was a higher quality lens and I thought "I'm not a professional so I can settle for the 55-300vr." Had the lens for a day and returned it because I felt that I allowed my self to settle for something that did not serve me in order to save 70 bucks. I ordered the 70-300vr instead for many reasons including Internal focus, VR2, and the shear speed of the auto focus. Also for the manual focus over ride when in auto focus. Next time I'll do my research more thoroughly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from some good, some not so good I have found this lens to provide very good distance magnification as well as object clarity. The VR assistance with natural motion of hands helps to produce photos which are crisp and without blurring, if light is sufficient. The not so good about this lens is the seriously restricted range of nighttime photography, preventing the camera's (in this case my D60) auto-operation of flash outside a tight area, based upon the ability of the camera's illumination being able to 'paint' an object. If outside this range, any motion of the target is hopelessly blurring, ruining its desired normal quality within limits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my favorites! I've used this lens for a variety of situations and it works beautifully for the most part! It works the best in well lit areas when your subject isn't doing a whole lot of moving. The poorer the light and the more movement happening, the longer it takes to focus, even compared to other lenses. I've noticed that, even in good lighting, it has a tendency to actually focus slightly behind the subject, despite the indicator lighting up in the right spots. That being said, I use it for a lot of sports and other action photography, and I still manage to get some great close-ups after making my own adjustments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Second Lens! I bought this lens as my second to accompany my 18-55 kit lens. It gives me a great amount of zoom. It's great for skittish animals, like birds or deer. It is also great for photographing my sister playing lacrosse from the bleachers. It also produces great portraits and keep you from freaking someone out by getting so close. The versatility and zoom of this lens makes it a great secondary lens to go with your kit lens. It is kind of cheaply made, basically all plastic, but that doesn't stop it's performance. This lens is a great compliment to any kit lens and has a good zoom for a first time telephoto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great zoom! I have had the 55-300 for a couple of weeks now and have used it quite a lot on my D3100 with and without a tripod. In this class, I do not feel there is a better lens. The range is better than others, starting at 55mm rather than 70. It is very sharp from 55 through about 200 and better than others at 300. Sure, in this price range it will not be super sharp at 300. But having come to Nikon from Sony and comparing this lens to the Sony 75-300, well, there is no comparison! I have found almost no color fringing, something I had to deal with in the Sony. The VR is EXCELLENT! Better than any other lens I own. My D3100 seems to meter very well with it and color is excellent. I highly recommend this lens to all DX owners!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lens arrived with scratch on coating of lens The lens came as an outfit with another lens and the D7100 body. I've never had any problems with Nikon/Nikkor lenses before and I've owned quite a few Nikon cameras and still do. I'm very unsatisfied with the fact that no one inspects these lenses before they package them unless of course it isn't human beings packaging the lens in a box. So my first day using it is also the first day of having to package it back up to send it to Nikon for replacement. Be sure to visually inspect every detail of the camera's and lenses you buy Nikon retailers, in this case B and H.
