Factory Refurbished but.....

Summary: Lens was "Certified Factory Refurbished". Don't know if that had anything to do with my problems or if it's just a bad lens. I couldn't get it to focus properly. Used auto-focus and had problems. Focused manually and had problems. It was hit or miss as to whether or not it would focus.
Summary: BE CAREFUL!!! buying items from this seller. You may be fooled with high discount / deal numbers. Make sure you compare items online with other retailers before buying. Also the items may not qualify for actual warranty from original manufacturer.
I got lense nikon af-s 55mm 300mm with water spot ...

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.
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...
Excerpt: I bought this lens 2 years ago and it was great at first. I was taking photos at 300mm handheld and they were really sharp. After about a year the lens would not focus automatically or manually. No matter what I do I can't get a sharp picture. I've always been very careful with my camera and lenses.
Excerpt: The lense advertised is NOT an ED lens it is a DX lens. The ED's sell for $1000. You can tell by zooming in on the lense image. To the right of the info it will read either "ED" or "DX". Don't be fooled. The ED is pro quality the DX is not. Was this review helpful? |
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: Though i have taken only less than 500 photographs so far, i am not at all happy with the quality of the output. Beyond 250 there is heavy noise and i do not see any significant difference over my kit lens 55-200mm. This is not at all compatible with any of the tele-convertors as well.
