Nikon Nikkor 55-300mm VR DX G lens, only £237 @ Amazon

Found 19th May 2011
Nikon's recent high quality 55-300mm VR DX lens.

Plugs the gap between the excellent but heavy FF 70-300mm and the cheaply made 55-200mm.

This one has a metal mount and an excellent performance, typical review:…/13

Excellent vibration reduction version 2 system

Cheapest price from main retailer (fulfilled by Amazon - so Amazon dispatch and guarantees) I have found by around £40

Only on special for a few days


not Amazon, but marketplace seller

not Amazon, but marketplace seller

no, its a "fullfilled" amazon sale (read pop-up in Amazon)

1. A marketplace is purely you and a seller
2. A fullfilled Amazon is paid through, supplied by (from Amazon's warehouse) and serviced by Amazon. The actual stock is on behalf of a 3rd party.
3. A is the same as 2 but Amazon sources the stock itself

Very handy lens at a good price, I have one.
Feels cheap-and-plasticky and has been cheaper.

how do I vote "warm", not quite "hot"

How does this compare to the 18-200 VR over the same focal range?
