Pros: Lightness, good sharpness, vr very good, price

Cons: Not much really, only de autofocus could be a little faster

Opinion: I use this lens for 3 years now, i take on my hikes with my dog and it is very light. I find it a very good allround lens wich makes very sharp pictures from a bird far away till very decent macro. It has a very nice bokeh, especially with de macro pictures. Mine was very sharp with my nikon D5100 up to 250 mm, with my nikon D7000 it is sharp all the way to 300 mm. If you want to walk with your camera and don't want to miss out anything on your way, and don't want to change lenses , this is the lens for you. Super quality , especially for it's price.

Pros: Weight, effective VR

Cons: Embarrassing autofocus, purple fringing, chromatic aberrations

Opinion: Resold and replaced with the Tamron 70-300, which for a few euros more offers much more. It's little more than a lens to take souvenir photos, the sharpness is not who knows that, the autofocus is embarrassingly slow... Frustrating at times. In cases of high contrast, especially at open focals and above 200mm it suffers from chromatic aberrations and purple fringing. Well, the VR, you shoot freehand even at 300mm. It is obvious that at this price you can not expect the quality of a 70-200 2.8, but at similar prices it is located around much better.

Pros: Price and lightness

Cons: Little..

Opinion: Very light lens, sharp and with a very effective stabilizer that allows to shoot freehand at 300mm apsc with times of the order of 1/160 in serene tranquility (but you can go down again)... I use it on Nikon D7100 and I find it extremely versatile.. The sharpness is also valid compared to much more expensive goals... The small size allows you to take it anywhere without sacrifice.. The only flaw in my opinion is a slight change of focal focalling manually... This thing I noticed on almost all the non-professional goals I tried, so considering the price and the rest of the quality I still feel to recommend it as a lens tele tuttofare...

Pros: Lightness, focal hike, good sharpness, pretty effective VR, online price

Cons: Autofocus is not lightning

Opinion: I bought this lens online about a year ago at a fairly advantageous price, I used it for birdlife, portraits, landscapes (combined with D3400 and D500) gives its best in good light conditions and with static subjects. The autofocus tends to go a bit in crisis with dynamic subjects. The sharpness is excellent up to about 250mm provided you always close of 1/2 or 1 stop, at 300mm Cala slightly quality. In my opinion it allows to get good bokeh especially in the portrait. I found a slight back focus on D500, easily correctable in the room. Lens promoted in my opinion and super recommended considering the price.

Pros: Lightness, excellent quality / price ratio, 55mm of minimal focal length.

Cons: Autofocus a bit slow, but acceptable.

Opinion: I own this lens from 2014 in coupled with d5200 and d7100 and, especially with this last body, I always obtained excellent results even at the maximum focal length (effective 450mm dx) especially if I closed the diaphragm 1-2 stops. Excellent colors and definition. The few times I found the image slightly kneaded, magnifying, I found that in reality it was micro-moved. In good light conditions it does not regret much more expensive optics.
