I got my money's worth
26 April 2013
Summary: I'm not a pro by any means, but I am happy with the money I spent on this lens. I'm getting some great shots. I'm sure that some more seasoned users will find fault with the glass quality, etc.
Summary: In my first foray into photography, I decided to take a telephoto lens instead of the kit lens (bought a Nikon D5100 separately), to shoot pictures of people and food (what can I say, I'm -sortof- from the Instagram generation). I am not qualified to comment on the quality as compared to other lenses (I am neither a professional nor do I own other lenses). All I know is I'm satisfied that this lens is telephoto, and it works as advertised.
Summary: I purchased this a week ago and have taken it out on three shoots already. The first was some action photography of a sport bike race. I took photos using the automatic zoom in the corners and on the strait with the bikes approaching 190mph. The zoom was quick, could be quicker but it was defiantly faster then my Canon EF 70-250. The stabilized feature works great, I would say better then the two canon lens I own.
Summary: Purchased this lens as I needed a moderate zoom lens for family outings and a zoo trip. However, I needed something that was a little more budget friendly. This lens fit the bill. I received the lens quickly and I am overall pleased with it. The pictures taken were clear and the colors well-balanced. I would have to say that the lens was worth the money and I am pleased with the purchase.
Summary: I thought it was pretty good for a budget lens,Used on a Canon T2i and a 60D,I used it for zoom mostly and got some very nice shots of the Decorah Eagles. I did notice at 50mm pic were rather washed out and noisy. So maybe the zoom function is best for this lens,Tried a 2X extender and got some decent shots also..So this lens has potential if used properly IMO. Made in Japan and well made I must say.
Summary: Was contemplating buying a Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR [Vibration Reduction] Nikkor Zoom Lens but opted for a Sigma Sigma 50-200mm f/4.0-5.6 DC IF SLD Optical Stabilized (OS) Lens with Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras instead due to the following - 01.
