Is this lens good and what do you think of the price as Amazon selling this lens for £150.
Nikon Lens - Nikon AF-S 55-200mm f/4-5.6 VR DX NIKKOR (3.6X)
I believe that is the lens that I have and I love it. Those photos of the birds and squirrels that I recently took were with this lens. I really like the VR, it helps a lot.
Don't know about that particular lens, Jeff but here's the one I've got on my D70:
Nikon AF-S DX 18-200mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR II Lens
More money, yes. But I can tell you that it's a spectacular lens. It's my only 100% of the time carry lens. It's a little heavier on the front end, but it's so incredibly versatile!
The only other lens I've got that I use sometimes is my 50mm. But that's only for rather specific circumstances.
Tom (... absolutely love my 18-200!)
Tom (who loves his Ipad), do you find the bigger lens too awkward to carry around? Too big.
I have 2 lens right now. The 18-55 and then the above lens. The one you mention would combine the two obviously, but then I wouldn't have to change lens.
Not at all FD! I've got to be a little more aware of it is all. Just pay attention a bit more than is normal for me.Originally Posted by foreverducky, post: 199954
Fully extended, the barrel just "feels" long. It sticks out there a ways. Nothing to be a concern, just something to be aware of.
I've got this Lowepro top load case that it fits in quite nicely:
Toploader Zoom 45 AW
This is a fairly small case and the lens and camera fit in it just fine. Of course, there isn't much room for anything else other than a spare battery and a couple of memory cards.
I'm really enamored of this lens. For a single, do everything lens for Nikon, I think it's just about perfect!
Tom (... yes... I like it!)
Thanks for the info! This may actually be my next purchase (when I can save up the dough of course). I like the all in one.
