  • Summary: Haven't used it in a shoot yet, but I have a feeling I will have to use a tripod when I do. We'll see next week. I experimented with it in my back yard and that was okay.

Doesn't focus at long distances!

  • Summary: If you are looking for a lens that has great macro qualities and has a good manual focus setting, then look no further. this lens is great for manual focus shooting and tight focus macro shots. but, my lens came with a defect that makes it impossible for me to shoot good auto focus pictures.

steer clear of this lens

  • Excerpt: This lens has issues. Without the stabilization, it is not much better than a paperweight. Spend the $$ on the image stabilization or move up to the VR 70-300 - great lens!!!

Not so good

Vulpine, B&H Photo
27 May 2008
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens for my D40 preparatory to going on vacation in Tennessee, where I expected to get a number of landscape photos as well as less typical 'artistic' shots. While on vacation, my wife purchased a D60 with the idea of adopting the D40 taking advantage of the ability to share lenses.
  • Cons: Not Functional

DX 55-200 Not so good!

RW, Amazon

  • Summary: Hi, I'm taking off for some extended travel and thought I'd delve into the Nikon D50 package because it's so light weight and I wouldn't have to worry about film. I did an exposure test on this lens with an evenly lit (.1 stop variation) test grid. Basically just black lines on a white background.

  • Excerpt: Этот объектив только для дилетантов или тех, кто только учится фотографировать и переходит на "телевики". За 5000 р хорошего объектива просто быть не может, покупая его надо это понимать. Фокусируется только в одной точке, остальное в кадре будет мазня. Сам тёмный.
  • Pros: цена, лёгкий
  • Cons: тёмный, фокусировка только в одной точке, пластмасса
