Good zoom lens

  • Excerpt: Nice & sharp lens, but. Don't expect it will give you very sharp image from distance ( this is what my purpose to buy this lens, I got 80-200 f2.8 Nikon lens & want to zoom a bit more for birding). It will give you sharp image in bright condition or close distance.

  • Summary: You get what you pay for so don't expect much in the way of accessories. The lens is great, the filter is good for protecting the glass and the bag came in handy for carrying my D-3000 with a smaller lens attact. The rest of the stuff is junk.
