I'm thinking of upgrading my 18-55, tempted by this, but think I'll go for the Nikon 18-140 VR. It's a bit heavier but the extra reach would be useful, and it gets good reviews. Last time I liked this could be had for about £200-£225 for a grey import.

I only ask as presumably with VR you can go several stops lower at low light than typical, making the speed aspect of the two lenses very similar?

The Sigma with vr for 50 pounds more its a better deal.

Seems like a bargain. Gets great reviews and £350 at Amazon. I'd buy it if I didn't have the Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 (which cost me about £275)
Edit - looks like this is the non-VR version. Hence the cheaper price.

The G2 is a replacement for the 70-200 stabalised lens. This is the none stabalised version, so ever worse than what the g2 was replacing.

The orginal stabalised version is £592 on their ebay account.

Ordered a 150-600 from them nearly 2 years ago for €800. Was 1400 in the shops. Not a problem with it and lots of nice photos.
Although I know the G2 is double the price of G1, does it come near the standards of the Nikon VR II version?

Will work on both full-frame and cropped sensors. Compare alternatives, including the revised model, before purchasing.
That looks like a very good deal for a f2.8 lens, unfortunately I don't use my SLR so much - it's too bulky, and carrying around a bag with a couple of lenses in gets to you after a while.

I've had one of these for almost a year now - very impressed with it - it's well built, with no wobble when full extended and the quality is good. It replaced my 18-55 kit lens and my 50-200mm. It performs as well as either of them.

Incidentally, it was around £170 last spring, when I bought it.

I just got home from Argos with this and am pleased so far. Auto focus is a bit slow in low light, compared with my Nikon lenses, but the build quality and overall feel are good. Certainly very happy for the money!

Can this lense be used with any other camera?


This version is for Nikon F-mount, and is designed for cameras with APS-C sensors, such as the D3200 that I use.

TStop is usually higher for all the lenses than the FStop, but in this case it's different. So in reality it's 5.7 instead of 6.3 - dxomark.com/Len…kon . Probably not that anyone cares about this

The 55-250mm will definitely be sharper. As a general rule, the shorter the focal range (in terms of multiplication), the sharper a lens can potentially be, with superzooms suffering in optical quality as the primary shortcoming for their insane zoom range. This one is notable for mitigating that inherent issue to a larger degree than most comparable superzooms.

No, in fact I would expect quality of the Canon at the long end to be better than the Tamron. The big plus of the Tamron is it's extraordinary 18x zoom range, and especially the wide end. This gives you a one lens solution for casual photography.

​Price increase probably due to devaluation of the pound following Brexit vote. My guess it will increase even more after Xmas. I sell imported goods, anything purchased in US dollars is costing about 18% more than this time last year. Its only the importers and retailers absorbing the increases which is protecting consumers at the moment.

For completeness, it's 225 to 900 on a Sony crop sensor
It gets all round good reviews, the only feedback I had from a forum member on dyxum.com was that he had sent his back for calibration test as it wasn't as sharp as he expected at the long end, and it was returned as checked ok and within tolerance, but I guess that's ok so long as your camera body has lens micro adjust and you can tweak it a little.

I recently bought this lens for a Nikon D7100, as an everyday, cover all option, and I really like it. I've taken some excellent images with it at all ranges, and find it difficult to tell any difference between it and my Nikon lenses.

I'm sure that the kind of tests companies do will prove there is a difference, and I don't dispute that, but for most people, it is hard to tell that difference during everyday use..
So not sure I'm gonna jump on this one as the bespoke offers price comes from expedite electronics. Grey market. Total price after cashback would have been 290 though... Not sure!
Your image quality might be less...you might get flatter images that don't show perspective so well, what you might benefit from is the ability to zoom in much closer.
whether you would be better with a 70-300mm depends 9n whether you want to have to carry 2 lenses, but you would get better pics with a 70-300mm, and some come with a macro setting g for an added bonus

Suspect at the price you'll not go too far wrong. Lots of positives on Amazon. Worth reading a few photo site reviews though so you can make a judgement about aspects of performance that are important to the use you will put lens to
