Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dream lens Bought it his lens after an indepth trawl online checking out various alternatives. Only used it a few times but very happy so far with results. Very solid feel to it if a bit on the heavy side but as said well made and very robust. Would have given excellent but limited use so far so stick at good meantime. 16 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good value for money This is a standard lens, which performs as expected, decent pictures but not blow your mind pictures. Compared to my professional lens it falls below that lens but this is to be expected.However it is a decent lens for the money. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Value Lens For Nikon! Amazing quality for a lens that delivers great performances similar to professional lenses. For anyone considering between this and the 55-200mm, go for 70-300mm as it delivers far greater results constituently thanks to the built in internal focusing and the superior zoom.This is a great investment for anyone passionate about photography! John Lewis also provided excellent service as expected and I will definitely buy lenses from them again in the future! 17 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful telephoto for all Nikon SLRs This telephoto lens is suitable for all Nikon SLRs and when used on the smaller DX format will give a an angle of view corresponding to a lens of about 135 - 450mm. This is therefore a powerful lens, ideal for sport photography or nature watching from a distance. A lot of care is always needed to use a lens of this power; the smallest vibration will give a blurred image. In this lens the very effective vibration reduction mechanism, as well as the smooth and powerful focusing motor, help minimise the problem and allow superb telephoto images. 08 July 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent lens, great Nikon quality and equally good service from John Lewis I have used this lens extensively to capture some great portrait shots of my family across the Spring and early Summer. The auto focus mechanism is very smooth and positive, and it performs well even under low lighting conditions, hand held. Lens quality is very impressive, even on cropped and selectively enlarged prints. Great service from John Lewis, as usual. Took a look at this in store and purchased a few weeks later over the web. Very quick delivery and well packaged for transit. 28 June 2011
