Lesson learned...

  • 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!

Sammie Smythe, Amazon

  • 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. I am an equestrian photographer, and in this job, it is a must that your lens focuses well.

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!!!

The lens is not very ...

Holger, Adorama
1 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The lens is not very sturdy. The autofocus broke after about 6 month. It was a fun lens to use, but never produce the crisp sharp images I expected from a Nikon lens. It seems that the real focus is a little behind the subject. When the autofocus failed I was unable to get the lens repaired, because I purchased the lens on-line. It seems that these lenses are not from Nikon.USA and the four year warrantee is not honored.

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. On both bodies my particular lens was not just slow with autofocus, but frequently did not AF at all, on either body!
  • Cons: Not Functional

DX 55-200 Not so good!

Robert Wright, Amazon
23 December 2005
  • 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. The lens is absolutely horrible! There's a huge hot spot in the center of the lens with fall off towards the outside and the corners.

  • 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. Более нормально ведёт себя в солнечную погоду. В помещении вообще не делает чётких снимков. Надо либо iso задирать до упора, либо "пыху" мощную. И то не поможет.
  • Pros: цена, лёгкий
  • Cons: тёмный, фокусировка только в одной точке, пластмасса
