Item Description

The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 ED VR Camera Zoom Lens is a compact, 5.5x, DX-format Nikkor AF-S telephoto lens with High Refractive Index lens element and ED glass. This camera lens is ideal for capturing distant subjects at athletic events, family pictures, dramatic sunsets, travel, and more. With built-in VR II image stabilization, this DX Nikon zoom lens gives you handheld shooting at up to four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise is made possible. It assures dramatically sharper still images and stable video captures. This high-power telephoto zoom lens includes a Tripod Deduction Mode that shuns the vibration occurring from shutter release while mounting on a tripod. The special Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is present in this Nikon telephoto zoom lens offers accurate, fast and silent autofocus.

The Nikon 300m VR lens also has Super Integrated Coating (SIC) that escalates light transmission effect and reduces flare, while providing finer color consistency.

Rated 4.6 out of 5★ by 155reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by expand your experience If you want to expand your photo-taking experience, this one will fill the bill. Get over the F4.5 It's the best you are ever going to get with 300mm. Sharp pictures without having to get too close to mother nature's creatures. You will find it is worth the extra money over the 70-200mm. 03/07/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent addition to camera bag The Nikon 55-300 mm DX AF VR Telephoto Lens is an excellent addition to the camera bag for any Nikon D3100 user. A heavy duty tripod is recommended for use when shooting long distance shots to eliminate camera shake once focused.I've had good success getting excellent photos with this new addition to my camera bag. And the price is well worth purchase. 03/12/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I Love this Lens...PHEWWWWWWw Hi, I totaly agree with its a nice lens ..Recently i bought a Nikon D3000 with a body lens 18-55 & I was supposed to go for a Nikon 70-300...but when I was in the outlet where the Nikon products are being sold ..I found this lens & the seller told me its a very good lens ...though I am an amatuer in photography...I mounted the lens on my cam & had some trial shots...I was not dat happy coz i wasnt used to these types of lenses & neither i had knowledge bout lenses...I bought it & at home I tried clicking ...mannnnnnnnn da output was amazing..I really liked the lens & am happy dat I got dis lens 05/25/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great lens, get it with camera as a kit and save $ My go-to lens for nature photography. The books and experts say, "use your feet, not a zoom". I photograph skittish (and occasionally dangerous) wildlife. Squirrels seldom pose for close-ups, and bees do not appreciate the attention. I haven't yet gotten to shoot a bear or a moose, but deer are sure friendlier through a zoom lens :) 05/29/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by 55-300 Nikon Lens is Awesome The 55-300 lens does a great job. I was afraid for the price that I wouldnt get a great lens, but it does an awesome job. The VR is great for hand held at 300. The pictures are sharp and moves smoothly. The lighting holds up well for the 300. For the price you are getting a great lens that does a great job. 04/20/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great lens for a variety of shooting conditions This is a good intermediate lens that I use on my D7000 which fills gaps for higher powered zooms and fixed power tele lensesI like it very much and use it as my main workhorse lens for a multiple of different shooting conditions from portrait and action scenes. 11/24/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by I had to return this because of a defect. The coating on the lens had a missed spot which I was concerned about causing me to return the lens and unfortunately the camera also since I bought a combo pack. I am looking forward to the new camera and lens. 10/06/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by excellent for my needs I am an inspector on pipelines and use primarily in macro and it far exceeds my expectations 06/27/2014
