  • Summary: this lens focuses easily with the manual focus but does not use the auto focus that the original lens uses.

Lightweight for the focal length

C Bear "biker", Amazon

  • Summary: This lens isn't going to be as great as a more expensive lens but it does a good job. A bonus is the light weight of the lens which makes it more comfortable carrying around while bird watching. Very nice to have the vibration compensation for a lens with long telephoto capabilities while hand-holding it so you don't need to carry a tripod either. So far the photos are in focus and it is compatible with my Fujifilm S5 Pro DSLR.

Good lens for the money... If it works.

Geoff W., Amazon

  • Summary: We ordered the Nikon version of this lens to have it for a wedding we were attending later that week. It came but it was a day or two before I got to open it. You can imagine how my heart sank when we discovered that the VC didn't work right. Pictures were much clearer without it and it made a terrible growling noise. I contacted amazon and explained the situation. They shipped me a fully functional replacement overnight and it came just hours before the wedding.

Great travel lens

Alan H., Amazon

  • Summary: So far I've mostly shot landscapes with it, so heavy on the wide-angle end at f/11 & f/16. I'm very happy with the sharpness of the photos. At the long end, no so much. The few that I've taken near the 300mm haven't been particularly sharp. Acceptable for vacation photos, which is why I bought it, but not really crisp. Overall, it's a pretty darn good all-in-one lens to cover a lot of different scenarios.

  • Summary: The picture is great. Have some concerns with it sounding like something is loose inside when you roll it over and that the internal motor are very load.

Great Lense for my Camera

Ryan, B&H Photo
29 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I use to cary an 18 to 55 and a 75 to 300 lense, both of them very heavy. This lense now takes place of the 2 that I use to cary with me. Works great in both indoor and outdoor.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Best DSLR Video Lens around!

Phil Lowe, Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: I love this lens and would've given it 5 stars except for the very slow aperture at the long end of this zoom (f6.3@300mm.) First, the cons: It's not as sharp as either my Canon EF 24-105L or 100-400L lenses, but, hello, it's an apples to oranges comparison. Little out there compares to Canon's L glass! F6.3 is a little slow for a 300mm lens (even a zoom) when other lens makers can produce zooms that come in at f5.6 or less on the tele end.

great travel lens

DC Tim, B&H Photo
4 September 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens fills an important gap. I shoot with a Canon 5d Mark iii, which I love. I shoot with a series of L lenses, which I also love. However when I travel, I am getting tired of dragging around four or five heavy lenses, especially when I travel by air. This lens helps – it has great range and is very light. This lens and one more (for the wider angles, or on some trips, my super zoom) are all I need.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
  • Cons: Limited Aperture Range

Good lens for a non "SP".

Joelson, Amazon
29 August 2013
  • Summary: A lens for those who do not want or can not be changing all the time and be surprised in a situation that requires the lens which is saved in your bag. I got great results in f:8 and good at f:4 ... Frankly this lens is better than I thought. Use this lens on a Sony SLT-A99 and how this camera behaves well at high ISO, had no problems in using up in closed environments. I take this opportunity to thank the Amazon by professionalism during the sales process.

Does the job, saves effort

Matthew R. Morgan, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: Five years ago my father-in-law gave me a Nikon D60 for my birthday, with a Nikon 18-50 and a Nikon 50-200. I love it, but a) I'm not gonna carry around two lenses most of the time, am I? b) 200 is long, but not really long. This one works well and takes good pictures. I've used it now on two trips, one to a barrier island in Florida and one camping in upstate NY. Worked well in a variety of natural lights and in the hotel room/restaurants.
