Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the $70.00 savings... Ordered this lens for my D5200, and immediately was disappointed with the focusing and the sharpness of the pictures at higher zooms. I had read that the 70-300vr was a higher quality lens and I thought "I'm not a professional so I can settle for the 55-300vr." Had the lens for a day and returned it because I felt that I allowed my self to settle for something that did not serve me in order to save 70 bucks. I ordered the 70-300vr instead for many reasons including Internal focus, VR2, and the shear speed of the auto focus. Also for the manual focus over ride when in auto focus. Next time I'll do my research more thoroughly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my favorites! I've used this lens for a variety of situations and it works beautifully for the most part! It works the best in well lit areas when your subject isn't doing a whole lot of moving. The poorer the light and the more movement happening, the longer it takes to focus, even compared to other lenses. I've noticed that, even in good lighting, it has a tendency to actually focus slightly behind the subject, despite the indicator lighting up in the right spots. That being said, I use it for a lot of sports and other action photography, and I still manage to get some great close-ups after making my own adjustments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lens - great quality Bought this when I started going to horse shows because I needed something with better zoom.. took it to my second show & was absolutely amazed with the quality of the photos. I'm the type who likes her artsy photos & was quite impressed with how good they looked. If anyone is looking for a zoom lens, I suggest going with this one. Works really well with squirrels & birds in trees too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment!!!! I was in need of a lens that would go beyond what my small camera would go. I decided to go for this zoom lens after my 18-55mm lens that came with my D40X completely died. I've had my camera for 6 years and I use it a LOT. Getting this lens reignited my passion for photography. I am not an expert photographer, just like to take good pictures. This lens is awesome. It produces crisp images and complements the camera settings to produce excellent pictures with great colors. I am very happy with this lens. Pros: It is not heavy and it is easy to carry/fit in a bag; great colors; crisp images; zooms to great lengths keeping details. Cons: Closer objects are difficult to photograph, but not impossible (I bought extension tubes to resolve this issue)
