I can't recommend Mobicity as I have never used them, hoping somebody could give some feedback on them?

Featuring second generation Vibration Reduction, four extra stops of shooting are possible in low light, or if you are looking to shoot without a tripod. Also has two ED (Extra Low Dispersion elements and one HRI (High Refractive Index) element to give accurate, sharp images. The Silent Wave Motor gives fast and quiet focusing, plus the lens mount is weather sealed.

great lens and good range. kenny r raves about this lens...I went for the 70-300 on a currys deal last year for the same price but this is a bargain.

Done a little research on this company and apparently their warehouse is located in China and the warranty for this product is not recognised by Nikon. Sounds a bit like yet another Chinese copy situation? Amazon had the same lens for a similar price and have stopped selling it due to complaints. Looks like your better off buying from Jessops?

It's almost certainly a legitimate Nikon lens rather than a "Chinese copy", but as it's not come through Nikon's official European channel, it's a grey import. In theory, DSLR bodies only come with regional warranties, whilst lenses and speedlights come with worldwide warranties (i.e. you'd need to return a grey-imported body to the retailer for them to return to the local Nikon repair facility, whilst lenses and speedlights should be able to be repaired by any Nikon repair facility), but I've not tested that. Various forum posts report varying experiences. Personally, I'd consider grey import goods to have no warranty, and consider myself lucky if I did get warranty service when I needed it.
