Mmm... the posted lens is delivered by amazon. The "cheaper" marketplace seller would not be allowed here on Hot UK. So, the best offer for HotUK members is the posted lens for £144.99.

Also, if you have "prime" (next day) delivery, you cannot use it on the (cheaper) marketplace offer.

Therefore HOT from me :)

'Allowed HERE' is the important bit. Personally I couldn't give a monkeys chuff what HUKDs thinks should and shouldn't be allowed. I voted on the PRICE and that is what this place is all about.

Bought one of these off good seller on eBay today for £129.50 free delivery but i collected it myself from Canary Wharf - one year warranty etc

A few months ago, these where £200+ everywhere, mind you a year before that they where £150 which is what it is worth really. I have one and it takes good pics when it doesn't mis-focus which it does quite often.

Basically, this is very hot for what it is. It is back to a sensible price and from a decent retailer. Warehouse Express are charging £240 still!

If you can afford it I'd recommend you spring for a 70-300mm VR...beast of a lens, and gives more reach than this lens.


Hardly a reasonable comparison though. Three times the price, massively heavier and with an effective 'wide' end of 100mm.

I'd say if you're offering an option, the 18-200 would be a better one.

Sadly, as a D700 owner, I'm a bit of a lens snob these days, and if it's not f2.8 or better through the range, then I avoid it.

Sorry, but how can you possibly consider a lens 'hot' if it often fails to focus properly? I'd suggest that either (a) you haven't mastered the basics of your camera yet, or (b) your lens is faulty and should be returned.

I have gone another route, cos of money, lol.

I have manual lenses that cost buttons and are just as sharp as the best current auto lenses that cost thousands. I realise that taking manual pics is a hassle though, lol.

The 55-200mmVR mis-focussing is well known.

I said it was hot "for what it is".

In which case, I should add a (c): sell that lens!

Yea. I should. :-) I have taken good shots with it tho. If your subject is very contrasty it works fine. It is very good for portraits. For action shots, it is hit and miss. I can't use my manual stuff for action.
#17
I see where you're coming from now. This is a slow lens - at a maximum aperture of f/4.5, it shouldn't be expected to capture action.

As for mf lenses, if you pre-focus (admittedly a pain in the ass), you can capture great action shots. Although my 70-200mm f/2.8 is the lens of choice for sports action, I've surprised myself with what I could capture with a manual focus Nikon 135mm f/2.8. It's hard work, but it can be done if the 70-200mm has been left at home :)

Yea, it is very much a consumer lens. I have taken portrait type shots with a £20, 40 year old manual lens that blows this away....but manually doing everything isn't always possible. At least with this lens if you shoot a lot of pics you stand a good chance of getting one or two good shots.
