I used them once with no problems but after reading recent comments I would not use again.

No, this is the one with VR (Vibration Control) definitely needed, especially in low light, due to the low max aperture at the long end.

I bought this off amazon on Wednesday last week, and it was with me by Friday with super saver delivery !

Very impressed my first upgrade from the standard 18-55 lens that came with my d60.

Now I just need to find something to take photos of

the jessops one is Tamron (inferior glass), 70-300 (longer range- good for telephoto), has no vibration reduction... so is therefore good when mounted on tripod.
this nikkor model is more versatile and can be handheld more easily.

Been around this price for a while now.

Shame they are a load of old gash - send used items and poor customer service. Amazon is the way forward - I have bought so much from them yet there service is ALWAYS faultless!

This was around £100 at Jessops and Jacobs pre-Xmas.
I got one then sold it when Jacobs had the 55-300 on offer.

great price for this lens. i had the tamron 70-300....for about a day. it had to go back as the pictures were too soft at 300 and no optical stabilisation makes the lens unusable.

This is a great lens. The VR is excellent and it takes great pictures!

That's a refurbished lens, not new like the Amazon one.
It says "Item condition: Manufacturer refurbished"

Comparing new Amazon lenses to sellers on ebay often isn't helpful.
Many ebay shops are foreign and potentially going to cost you import duty.
Some are selling used or refurbished goods. Many sell grey imports which won't get a warranty.
Unless you are really careful you can end up with unfair comparisons.
