5.0 out of 5 stars Skip the 55-200mm VR and get this!, September 7, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED Vibration Reduction Zoom Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras (Camera)
I know it's twice as much but it's well worth it. I took about 150 shots with it this weekend and was blown away. Bokeh is beautiful and it is sharp from 55-300mm. I had the 55-200mm VR and this is a significant step up. It's more solidly built and the results are excellent. It's a huge lens, and heavy, but the shots speak for themselves. Great, great lens!

I ordered this lens on Sept. 2, but the zoom is rough. It sticks in three places as it zooms in. Preliminary photos seem fine, but the zoom action is flawed. Will have to return it.

Mine stuck in one place, I just zoomed it in and out about 20 times and it works very smoothly now. Just needed to get "unstuck" a bit it seems.

Huge and heavy? Are you kidding? It's 1oz more than the awesome 16-85 VR DX. 18oz vs. 26oz for the 70-300VR FX. And even that is not all that heavy compared to some others.
