Okay optics for money. Good enough for simple pictures.
Bought this as a temporary solution vs. the more expensive lenses of SEK 10,000 class and above.
It is no great difference in sharpness between this objective and the other Nikon zoom area around 7-10000 SEK.
+ Value for money
+ Good sharpness but it is better for expensive money
+ VR feature works well and decently fast autofocus ok in this price range
- Slightly plastigt (but still feels quite ok)
- Something soft in Aperture 4.5 and 55 mm, but the aperture to up to 5.6-8 so you see the difference instantly.
If you are not looking for it there exktra little sharpness in any position will do this well in bright conditions.
Bought this lens to my D5200 when kitobjektivet not enough. It gives very sharp images even when handheld shooting thanks to its image stabilization. Could every little sharper at 300 zoom but nothing to complain about.
A really good lens for those who want to take great photos and get really close. Build quality is absolutely nothing to complain about, very stable!
In short, a very good lens at a great price. Great lens for the money.
Affordable lens that performs well. Gives great pictures and the zoom range complements my 17-50/2, 8 very well. Weather Sealed, image stabilizer, light and smooth. Highly recommended.
