Seems a a great price for this, cheaper than most grey imports. Comes with Nikon UK 2 Year Warranty.

Typically £230 elsewhere!

£138.49 inc free delivery.

PS You will have to look bottom right to see the Amazon deal, others are Marketplace and may not have UK Warranty.

They might be fulfilled by amazon, but only ones sold by amazon are guaranteed not to be greys.

AZ £114.99 too



Again there's no guarantee it's not a grey import.
i think at this low price point grey doesnt matter so much?
or maybe it matters more for the expensive ones as you save more?
hmm!

Grey Imports as are most Marketplace sellers - No UK warranty or support from Manufacturer. Check the seller info. If you are not worried about support or warranty then order the Grey Import.

£107.49 now showing for prime - was looking for a long lens last year and can confirm the previous price, (ended up buying the previous model) will be seriously miffed if it goes below 100 notes!
Just picked up the same lens for £92.00 10 from e-infinity Camera days ago, nifty little lens, perfect for street / travel photography. Cold for me as this one also comes with a 1 year warranty.

Yup, 'AF-S DX' are the codes you need to look out for to ensure you get a compatible autofocus lens. AF-S means inbuilt motor and DX is for APS-C sized sensors.

e-finity are not uk resellers so if you did have a problem it may cost you the difference to post it to them!
cant find details on their site - they will give you an address when you ask

1 year is still half of nikons 2 years also

a good price if you know what you are getting... though calling it a street photography lens is a bit much
Purchased for £115 on 31 Dec 2015 and works fine on my D3200.
Got this free with my D3300. Great for close ups. Im pretty new to the photography scene but love this lens.
Nice 1 seems a very good price, Thanks.
Bought this last week for £26 on Amazon Warehouse. That's HOT

Are you sure you got lens for close ups? It's a telephoto lens which is best for shooting from afar..? As far as I'm aware of course. No expert. Just enthusiast.
Bought this (and posted it previously) at around the £94 mark via Amazon. Ended up finding a 55-300mm shortly afterwards for about £130 (can't remember specific amount) and so sent this back and punted for the bigger one instead.

As a side note, I don't think grey imports are an issue either. My camera and possibly my 300mm lens are both imports, never had issues with either.

Anyone know where I can get a cheap prime lens. 50mm 1.8?

I assume he means the zoom bringing objects closer.

It works great for both in all honesty. I am as you mentioned also no expert but learning with each set of photo's I take in RAW and editing.

Have a look at these

I was under the impression for a few weeks that the 55-200 was only for distance shots until I came across the above.

I rarely use the 18-55 now
Excellent lens. Bought 2 years ago £108.95. Never had any issues with it and registered for the 2 year warranty with Nikon fine.

tbf you are still going to be about a metre away so for 'macro' that is a distance

I still don't understand Macro or 1:1 X)!

basically if your sensor is 2cm across and you photograph something which is 2cm and it fills the whole screen then its 'true macro' and 1:1
if it is only filling half the screen and you edit the photo by chopping off the empty edges then its a pretend 1:1 so not 'true macro' but its good enough for most of us X)
I have the 70-200 and its awesome.. 55-200 is even better for the same price on this deal! Don't hesitate seriously!

Oh righty. Heres me thinking it had something to camera settings to run a macro.... Cheers for explaining in simple terms

Providing the lens has been distributed by Nikon UK and you have the European warranty card, then you are covered.

I'm guessing if it will fit a D3200, it will also fit a D5100 ?

Yes no problems with D5100, fits any Nikon DX body.

Oh wow okay, gotcha. Thanks for that. Really interesting. Think I'm going to have to try this out!
Am confused - want to buy lens with Nikon warranty, NOT a grey import. Which one should I be buying? Thanks

It's the one sold by Amazon (bottom right, says Sold by: Amazon). Looks like it has gone up to £177.65 now though. May pay to wait a few days as Amazon prices do fluctuate somewhat.
