  • Excerpt: This is a good lens for a student. It has good diffenition and is quick to focus. I will say it is limited for close up shots it seems tom like a distance of 24 inches. Anything closer and you shoud change lenses. It is really good for long range( 2 miles or more) shots .
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus

  • Excerpt: I purchase this lens when I purchased my camera about 10 months ago. The lens works fine unless you are at full zoom then things get a little sloppy. I would recommend a tripod with the VR function turned off if you are going to shoot at full zoom. Otherwise this lens works great.

Good beginner lens that takes average quality pictures

  • Summary: This is an okay/average lens at best, which may be exactly what you're looking for in this price range, in which case I say go for it... it's cheap, gives you a decent focal range, the vibration reduction feature works great, and its capable of taking pretty good pictures as long as the light is...

  • Summary: Got this as part of a kit deal in 2009 with my D5000 + AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR. It is a good lightweight lens, takes decent telephoto shots, and requires less expensive 52mm filters.

Cheap Used Product

IRoC_IFoto, Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: The unit came as described-used condition with signs of wear so this was already a conceived notion I had in mind when receiving the product. When taking the lens out for a test run on my Nikon D 5100, the auto focusing seemed to have an issue locking on a target when using the longer end between...

Little problems, but finally ok.

  • Summary: The problem I found was a little loosen of the lenses. So that, the accuracy is not the best. The rest of the features are fine.

Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX lens

  • Excerpt: The 55-200mm lens is an extension to my 18-55mm lens, perfect for outdoor photography. It's light, compact and pretty fast. I am amazed at what it produces with merely 32mm in (glass) diameter (within the 52mm outer ring diameter) – a good value for the price.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Inexpensive, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not made in Japan
