Rated 5 out of 5 by gmcbride 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 Pt200 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 5 out of 5 by Bryan 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 4 out of 5 by nikkor1983 from NICE LENS WITH A GREAT FEATURES THIS IS A FINE LENS FOR THE INITIATORS.AT 300 MM VR WORKS GREAT.WITH THE VR HAND-HELD PICTURES SEEMS SHARP. IN A BRIGHT LIGHT CONDITION IT WORKS FABULOUS BUT THIS LENS IS NOT A SUITABLE TOOL FOR THE LOW LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY. AUTO-FOCUS IS EXCELLENT AND FIRST IN BRIGHTLY LIT CONDITION AND FOCUSING IS PINPOINTED AND PERFECT. IN HIGHLY BACKGROUND LIT CONDITION SOME CHROMATIC ABERRATION MAY OCCUR. USING THIS LENS AT F/11-F/15, YOU MAY OVERCOME THIS PROBLEM.I HIGHLY PREFER AND RECOMMEND THIS LENS.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Passion83 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 P4ch3co 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 Anonymous from Switched from Fixed-Lens - Never Go Back! Using this lens with Nikon D3300, it is astonishing how it can focus "on the go" taking point'n'shoot pictures of dragonflies rushing over a lake or birds flying through the air: without tripod, in focus, crisp clear. We did not think that would work without a tripod, but in daylight, it works just fine. Very satisfied as an amateur. Now, we do realize that 58mm lens opening is not a very big opening for a 300mm zoom, however, the 55-300mm spread is more than we hoped for in this price category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 35mmToDSLR Newbie from Great All in One Lens This lens can do it all. I used to carry and swap the 18-55mm lens with this one. The lens is very light by the way. After a while I noticed that most of my shots were at least 6 to 10 feet away. Perfect for the low end of the 55-300mm range of this lens. Plus when I take it to sporting events the 300mm allows me to stay in the bleachers. Alot of our friends have the 200mm lens and have to get alot closer for the same shots. The image stabilizer allows for crisp action photos at any distance.
