  • Summary: I've read endless reviews on this lens where others have said that it is great for portraits and pictures of children. But, they were all wrong! This is a wonderful zoom lens and pictures are clear when zoomed in however it does not allow you to take a picture standing within inches of your subject, Instead the lens will continue to auto focus in and out making a blurred picture.. The zoom is perfect but not what i wanted.

Not up to Nikon Standards

Dulaurence, B&H Photo
26 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Bought this to have a lightweight zoom telephoto for travel. It's light, it's plastic, it's captures are disappointing. Did some A/B testing versus my 70-300 Nikon VR. Light years apart! All my gear is Nikon, and this item really is not up to their standards. On a good note, the B&H folks were totally accommodating about the return. Sold me on them for life!

CHEAP, slow focus, and poor clarity, BUT great for kids first lens.

Angela Poch, Amazon
21 January 2011
  • Summary: Ok, this is a CHEAP (I own the real one and this one) version. It is slow to focus and hard to get a real crisp image. BUT for my 14yr old son, this is a 'stressful' starter lens. For our application we are happy with it. He is learning photography and we don't have to worry about him wrecking a $800 lens.

BEWARE!

Shotgunron, Amazon
19 September 2010
  • Summary: This is a GRAY MARKET item. Although the ad does not say so anywhere, it is. It DOES NOT come with a U.S. warranty, only a Nikon International warranty which I understand is pretty much worthless in the U.S. Nikon USA does not warrant gray market items purchased in the U.S. The actual lens box was in very rough shape.

Absolute junk

martenfisher, epinions.com

  • Excerpt: You would have to love the light weight compact style of this zoom lense.
  • Pros: Takes pictures fine close up.
  • Cons: Only gets good shots in the sun. Clouds destroy distance clarity. Way too slow.

Musiclover, Amazon

  • Summary: Buyer beware: I bought this lens for an 18th Birthday present. Today it arrived and I am glad that I looked closely at the guarantee inside the box. The guarantee states "This is your Nikon Inc. One year Limited Warranty (valid in the Continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and U.S Virgin Islands). If this lens went wrong, Nikon would NOT repair this lens under UK Warranty.

  • Excerpt: В примерах выкладываю фотографии абсолютно без обработки(оригинал)других объективов по меньшей или сходной цене,в любом из них резкость,цветопередача на недостижимом для 55-200 уровне и главное:в отличие от этого куска пластмассы,у них хоть немного "художественный рисунок". Рекомендую этот объектив всем 95% любителей,которые используют зеркало лишь потому,что это модно.Остальные 5% давно поняли,что лучше доплатить и купить хотя бы 70-300 VR.Мой итог:55-200-недорогой...
  • Pros: -Неплохой автофокус как по скорости,так и по точности,лично меня полностью устраивает, -Иногда,при определенном свете,дает очень хороший контраст
  • Cons: -Абсолютно не резкий, -Полное отсутствие полутонов,изображение,как из комикса,монохромное-есть два-три основных цвета и все,никаких оттенков!, -Всегда делает очень шумное изображения при любом свете, -Полное отсутствие объема(надо сказать,это серьезное "достижение" как для телеобъектива!), -Бессмысленный VR,у меня без него четче фотографии получаются вплоть до 1/50,а помогает стабилизатор только при выдержках короче 1/250, -Абсолютно,я бы даже сказал-феноменально "не ...
