Lens fell apart

  • Excerpt: I had high hopes for the lens, I bought it as a lens for my nikon d200. I have another camera so I wasn't too interested in a high end lens, I just needed a lens. I took a few shots and they were pretty decent.
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Quality Picture, Poorly Made

  • Excerpt: My father purchased me this lens to shoot sports with for the school paper. He un boxed the lens and took a few photos with it. He gave it to me the next day and i used it almost every day for a month straight. One day i went to shoot Field Hockey and it wasn't capturing the image.

Don't judge a book by its cover

  • Excerpt: I have an AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm made in Thailand that came in a kit with a Nikon D5100 and this Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm made in China. The differences in construction, quality and finishing between them are clear.

OK starter lens

  • Summary: If I had it to do over, I'd have passed on this lens. It's slow to focus and on the soft side.

Disappointed in Service and Quality

  • Summary: I received the 55-200mm lens as a gift from my husband for Christmas 2009. It lasted me till September 2010 when a little piece broke inside affecting my lens' ability to zoom/focus. Since I still had the receipt I decided to see if I could try exchanging it at Best Buy.

Best waste of 250 bucks.

  • Summary: This lens lacks sharpness and the VR is null. For a person new to photography it can be a good lens. For advanced amateurs and higher, you would be better off investing your money elsewhere like buying a new bag or something more productive. It has a turtle fast focus as well.
