Summary: I got lense nikon af-s 55mm 300mm with water spot inside middle of lense wich I cant able to clear with clinging material and as per my order there must be 5pc of filter lenses but I got just 3pc of filter lenses.
The lense shown is a DX NOT and ED Lense! It makes a difference of about $500!

Summary: The description of this lens says its and ED lens, but the image is a DX! There is a huge difference in price as the ED is pro quality the DX is not. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Excerpt: When I first purchased this lens for my Nikon D7100, I never imagined that I would get a defective lens.
There was lint inside the internal lenses with no option to clean them. I would probably ignore a small piece if it was at the edge of the lens but when you have (3) spots of lint in the middle of the lens, quality needs to be improved. This is my first time owning a Nikon product and so far, I'm debating the purchase.
Summary: Didn't even try the lens. But I am sure it is good as the five star reviews state. The box didn't contain a Nikon warranty. When giving bad feedback, you will receive an email from them saying that they will give you 1 years warranty return to them and will extend it by 6 months if you remove the bad feedback. Bunch of chancers if you ask me. It appears they were getting to much negative press about their antics and changed their name to GGEEDD.
Summary: GREY IMPORT with all documentation in Chinese - but bought through AMAZON PRIME so there's something wrong here!! Because it was not a UK-authorised product, Nikon refused, quite understandably, to pay the £45 cashback for which a UK purchase from Currys would have qualified - I wonder if Amazon will pay me instead?? Being serious, where do I stand with regard to repairs under whatever warranty the lens came with?
Excerpt: This lens takes decent photos, but I exchanged one because the view kept jumping, while the lens made a clicking noises. The second hasn't developed that problem. However, both lenses had terrible zoom action....the mechanism is hard to turn, especially at full zoom. I had hoped it would loosen up with use, but so far it has not.
