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

  • Summary: Despite having a wide zoom range, Nikon's 55-300mm zoom failed to deliver anything special of significance. As such, and given its DX-only sensor coverage, potential buyers may prefer to choose Nikon's AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR telephoto zoom, it delivers a more refined performance and better...

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

TechRadar UK

  • Summary: A big 5.5x zoom lens range extends your reach
  • Pros: More telephoto reach than most APS-C zoom lenses, Very good image quality, 4-stop stabiliser enables consistently sharp handheld shots
  • Cons: Front element rotates and extends during focusing, Basic rather than ring-type AF-S autofocus, You'll have to ditch it if you upgrade to a full-frame camera

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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

Nikon AF-S DX 55-300mm F4.5-5.6G VR

  • Excerpt: DX i navnet indikerer, at det er konstrueret til kameraer med brændviddeforlængelse. Det kan dog bruges på full-frame-kameraer, men der sker så bare en beskæring af billederne. Objektivet er generelt lækkert og mekanisk velfungerende. Her er indbygget billedstabilisering, og modlysblænde medfølger.
