  • Conclusion: The latest-generation 4-stop Vibration Reduction works a treat and build quality is a step up from Nikon's smaller 55-200mm VR lens, making the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR well worth the extra £60 outlay.

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G AF-S DX VR Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

  • Excerpt: Click on the thumbnails for a high resolution image Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at Nikon's latest telephoto offering for DX format cameras. Until the introduction of this lens, Nikon camera users requiring a lens that covers focal lengths up to 300mm to complement their existing kit lens had a compromise on their hands.
  • Pros: Decent optical performer, Good build quality for a consumer lens, Light weight
  • Cons: Lens extends and focus ring rotates during AF, Delay before VR system kicks in properly

Lens Test: Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G DX ED VR AS-S

Pop Photo

  • Excerpt: Nikon's longest zoom for cameras with APS-C-size sensors (DX format), this 5.5X 55–300mm f/4.5–5.6G VR ($360, street) scales up to the full-frame equivalent of 82.5–450mm. It offers two elements of ED glass, a high-refractive-index glass element (a DX first), Vibration Reduction II, the quiet SWM focusing motor, and tripod-detection mode. Adding reach to the two 55–200mm DX Nikkors, it promises new capabilities for wildlife, sports, travel, and people shots.

Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

  • Excerpt: Most telephoto zoom lenses designed specifically for APS-C rather than full-frame DSLRs have a zoom range of about 50-200mm. This gives them an effective zoom range of 75-300mm on Nikon camera bodies such as the D3100 and D5100 , very close to the classic telephoto zoom range of 70-300mm on full-frame cameras.

  • Excerpt: At the 55mm end of the zoom range, the angle of view is 28° 50', which is a little bit tighter than that of an 80mm lens on a 35mm body.

  • Conclusion: Nikon is trying to play the independents at their own game, and have largely succeeded, delivering good balance of mechanical and optical quality in a reasonably light and compact package. Shame the AF isn’t faster.

AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G ED VR Lens

PhotoReview
1 October 2010
  • Summary: A lightweight, 5.5x telephoto zoom lens with built-in VR stabilisation for Nikon's DX camera bodies. Photographers looking for a telephoto zoom lens to complement the 18-55mm kit lens supplied with Nikon DSLRs will doubtless be drawn to the new AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G ED VR lens.
  • Cons: High resolution is important., Edge and corner softening or are unacceptable., You need true macro capabilities.

  • Excerpt: Until the introduction of this lens, Nikon camera users requiring a lens that covers focal lengths up to 300mm to complement their existing kit lens had a compromise on their hands. Either they could choose a lens covering the popular 70-300mm range designed to cover a full frame sensor, but this would leave a gap between 55mm and 70mm, or they could purchase a superzoom lens covering up to 300mm, but this would often result in a slower maximum aperture at 300mm and...
