Pros: Price (bought for 30 euros on eBay...), right size, noisy but effective VR, almost professional portraits, excellent bokeh, single focus

Cons: Very noisy and problematic focus with moving subjects, slows down continuous shots, vignetting

Opinion: I use this lens almost as a main lens (except for landscapes), it enjoys excellent versatility. Ok for sport, but the AF could get some headaches with the very fast subjects and then delay the shooting. The engine noises are obvious, but after a while you get used to it. I also use it for portraiture and I have to say that it behaves very well. Maybe not very sharp and suffers from vignetting in the corners increasing the focal length, but in post you can earn a lot. One of the best entry-level lenses, inferior only to the VR II version.

Pros: In his day it was a very useful, cheap lens now on how to learn...

Cons: nothing...

Opinion: Had in the kit on the D5000 with the 18-55 VR + 55-200 VR Very useful in the mountains, regular quality could be done more. It is located in the used at low prices, and it is better to take it to learn in naturalistic photography. You don't even notice you have it in your bag when it's disassembled, so even in the city it's worth taking it with you.

Pros: Cheap and compact

Cons: Lagnosy Autofocus, not sharp especially when you get closer to 200

Opinion: So, I took this lens used in conjunction with my first car. Needless to tell lies, it's a lens I honestly don't love and that I would change if I had financial availability. Let's be clear, for the price it has (especially when you take it used) the job does it. But. Lagnosy autofocus, and when you go to the 200 while you focus the image "trembles" for a moment. Unclear and above all unthinkable to use when light conditions begin to become slightly difficult. I hope that Nikon can at least improve one of the cons in the future. Not both of them, but at least one. However, in the range of choice between basic objectives, it has an interesting use. The long daytime exposures. Unlike the 18-55 kit, the focus has a dedicated dial. This allows you not to accidentally change the focus when screwing any filter.

Pros: Lightweight and great for portraits

Cons: chromatic aberration in low light AF slow and noisy, dark

Opinion: Taken in Kit a decade ago with the d3000. All in all not bad for what it costs, I use it mostly for portraits in the ceremonies because it very light and easy to transport. A total opening shows its limits and the AF is not a much but for portraiture is not bad, very soft and fuzzy chromatic aberrations contained in conditions of optimum illumination. Lose a lot if the light is lowered or subject to long distance, not good for the sport because the AF is not really fast.

Pros: Pro: Sharpness, versatility, clutter, excellent blur, presence of the super - high, new price when I took it and now in use, focal length, weight, robustness, good image quality across the frame (price / performance).

Cons: Cons: Building (obviously not a lens goal), dark, af and vr noisy, af uncertain and slow, minimal focus distance, TA aberrations, in general all these problems are accentuated in the dark, chromatic aberrations on strong contrasts .

Opinion: Already said everything in pros and cons. School goal, so suitable for beginners who approach the telephoto world for the first time. I still have this lens and I use it now only on Nikon D3000, battle reflexes, for events and events (it draws little attention from those who have too long hands). The current version is currently on sale: Nikon AF-S DX 55-200mm f / 4-5.6G VR II at a very low price.
