Xbox360man said it, the prices you have quoted from Currys and mobility.co.uk are for the older non APO version. This APO version retails at Currys for £150 currys.co.uk/gbu…tml?

Nice price but no image stabilisation. So, telephoto lens without image stabiliser is a no-go nowadays.

would this work with a olymupus om-d e-m10 mark 2, new to cameras so i dont know

No, this is for Nikon cameras. You could use it with an adapter but you wouldn't have autofocus or aperture control. Basically, it would be a waste of time. Plus it's a bang average lens anyway. If you want a cheap tele zoom, buy the Olympus 40-150/4-5.6.

Actually thats not strictly true as faster shutter will overcome that. Tripod mount it and use a shutter trigger, stabilisation sorted.

Not a great lens but nice for the price.

​I bought this lens last month and it's very good for the price. It does lack image stabilisation but so does every other lens in this price range. The savings compared to other lenses easily fund a tripod or if you are a novice like me take lots of shots and pick the best.

If you can stretch a little further E-infinity has the Nikkor version with image stabilisationfor 169 delivered. Fast delivery Mine arrived yesterday

none available for Canon, I guess I am too late.

​brand new?

Back to £149 now.

Alternative is the Nikon AF-S 55-200 f4-5.6 VR II lens. £146 from Amazon. Shorter telephoto (300mm equivalent though with DX cameras), but it does have image stabilisation (VR), a shorter, retractable barrel (VR II) and it's a Nikon. I bought one and use it a lot.

Nearly twice the price of the ops and I wouldn't be buying from that company (5.6/10 trustpilot) in any case so likely to be quite a bit more from a legitimate source

Why so? Nowadays we have digital cameras with much higher, usable ISO so can push shutter speeds up to get sharp shots hand held at the long end. Yes IS helps you work with a slower shutter speed or ISO but inevitably they're more expensive. If you work to the rule of thumb of 1/effective focal length you should be able to get decent sharp shots hand held. Note, effective length at the long end for this will be ~450mm on a dx body (300 x 1.5 crop factor) so you'd aim for a 1/500 s shutter.

Brand new. But its actually 55-300mm so wider range. International Nikon Warranty. Despatched from UK so no worries with duty

​Yeah, I just crank up the ISO to fuel a high shutter speed. No one on social media is going to cry about the noise.

I have many £100s worth of goods from them (eglobal) and IF you want MORE for your money the 70-300mm vr lens is [l believe] better value

Dont disagree but thats why its cheap. One has to carry the tripod if planning to take distance shots. On free hand, image stabilisation has its advantage.

I carry a wee tripod with my camera bag when I'm off for a trott, it clips nicely on to it.
