Is this a UK version with warranty card or a grey import? Ibought a D5300 2 weeks ago and looking for a longer lens.
Sounds like a good deal and very tempted to use with the D5000 I have but I am ashamed to say that I know nothing about the technical details of photography but am looking to learn as hoping to go on a safari or similar when i can save up enough money. So, in layman's terms, how far away an object could you zoom in on and it fill the frame - 100m, 200m etc?

Any guidance gratefully received.

This looks a good deal here £99 for a 70-300mm lens although it’s not got VR

That Tamron is very blurry on the 250-300 mm tele end, that combined with the lack of stabilisation and very slow af makes it a poor choice.

Even with a tripod or bean bag?

An effective length of 495mm with a smaller DX sensor for £99 is a bargain is it not?

edit: also the Tamron is the same speed as this

A tripod and bean bag can't cure a soft lens. Something is not a bargain just because it is cheap.

Seems to get decent reviews for the price, are you talking from experience and have you used the lens or are you comparing it to a lens in a different price category altogether?

I have two lens in my bag for my DSLR. This Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR Lens and this Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens and they cover me for everything.
Just decided to switch to Instagram for my portfolio but am slow at uploading so there are only a few shots here. I have thousands to go through lol.

It's here instagram.com/kat…hy/

I bought this Sigma for my D5300. Its 70-300. I also have a Nikor VR 55-200 lens. I tend to use my Sigma more, as it has more zoom.

I used to have that old tamron lens. It was very hit and miss whether you'd get a good shot or not. As mentioned af was slow, but also unreliable. The macro mode was occasionally useful though.
Damn, I want the 18-200mm lens. 😔

Given the price, I'd think it's a grey import.
Tempted. Just had a quick look at the reviews although not supplier specific. One said there wasn't a serial number on the lens. Can anyone confirm theirs was ok and had a serial number on? Particularly Bobbajob.
I got this lens some time ago (July 2016) for £95. Grey import from e-infinity. No issues and delivered via royal mail with full tracking. It's still <£100. Great vfm at that price. Just saying...(HUKD won't allow links to that particular site)
dont think this is hot either, as pomrick says grey imports can be had for much cheaper and we dont even know this isn't a grey import

not even sure this post is allowed any more as GIL ENTERPRISE not listed any more and the others have iffy feedback (by forum standards)
Had this lens when it came out and found it OK at best. Good for a starter but nothing special. I would recommend buying a second hand one from a reputable dealer who will give a 12 month warranty. That said Nikon lenses tend to be very reliable.

for just £17 you can have an Amazon 2 year accident and breakdown cover or 3 years for £3 more.

why don't they allow that site? They don't pay commission to hukd?

Because they don't have a registered UK address listed on their website (or something very similar) was the reason they gave for removing my post. I think they import into Manchester and post tracked royal mail from there, so no risk of additional duty/tax etc. unlike some other grey imports
