Pros: Prezzo irrisorio,leggero,qualità ottiche straordinarie,VR efficiente e silenzioso!

Cons: Un po' plasticoso,alla focale massima di 200 mm perde qualcosa in termini di definizione

Opinion: Per quel costa,un prezzo davvero irrisorio,ha una resa ottica incredibile.Grande definizione,ottimo contrasto e resa dei colori praticamente perfetta.Leggerissimo e poco ingombrante quando è chiuso,mette a fuoco senza indecisioni nonostante la luminosità non elevata in condizioni di luce e contrasto bassi.Non ha grandi aberrazioni e diffrazioni.Resa del dettaglio sui moderni sensori APS Nikon follemente buona per il prezzo,lo si porta facilmente ovunque e il VR è efficentissimo.C'è da chiedersi come un'ottica del genere possa essere venduta a un prezzo così basso.Focale su APS equivalente circa a 80/300mm.Consigliatissimo,appena provato non ci volevo credere,ma l'ho acquistato immediatamente. Non adatto a essere usato su corpi macchina FX.

Pros: price, light, compact, good yield

Cons: plastic construction, dark

Opinion: I own this lens from a few years, taken at a shredded price on the internet. Suitable for those who don't have too many pretensions, the sharpness is still good all over the focus. The autofocus works well and generally never gave me any problems (even used at night for sporting events), hooks pretty quickly and accurately but it's noisy so it's not good for video footage. The stabilizer does its duty, but I found it less effective than the tamron 70-300 The low price unfortunately implies a construction from true entry level . Completely plastic (bayonet included) and pebbled bark I would say. It is not airtight enough to prevent dust from entering. Ps. there mounts the DZHB-37 lampshade (which I think is the one mounted in the previous version) and there goes great

Pros: Small, handy, light, good value for money

Cons: Autofocus a bit noisy

Opinion: I bought this lens used at a really advantageous price for its performance. The images are sharp both at f55 and at F200. On My Lens The manual focus is a bit ' soft (I do not know if it depends on the fact that it is used) but still very precise, the autofocus is accurate not very fast but I can not even define it slow even if a little ' noisy I do not think a real defect , however the quality of the image is really good both at the court and at long distances. The aperture of the diaphragm is a bit high (4-5.6), normally photographer with sufficient light, but even with the maximum aperture you get good results. Excellent work done by the VR. In Short, value for money, even from new, really good for a focal with this excursion.

Pros: Size, weight, focal length, VR,

Cons: Sharpness, autofocus, plastic bayonet, lens hood

Opinion: I have this lens for a year and I horsemanship it on d5300. For the use that I do it all in all is not bad, having bought in discount at €150. Thanks to the release button when you put in the bag reaches a really compact size for a telephoto lens, little bigger than the kit 18-55. Another advantage is the focal length, which, for the price, associated with the kit lens covers from 18 to 200. Finally, the thing that I appreciate most is the VR, which allows you to shoot with really slow times without moving, even up to 1/30 to 200mm. Passing to the sore notes, one immediately notices the low quality of construction (all in plastic, also the bayonet) and the absence of the lens hood. By shooting at full aperture, as it is normal that you do not being a bright lens, the results are not exceptional but not even so negative. The most serious thing is the autofocus, noisy and very slow to hook the subject and during the tracking (eg shooting birds). In conclusion, I recommend this lens to all those spending little are looking for this focal length (essential to start photographing) without excessive demands.

Pros: Sharpness to TA, lightness, focal length excursion, practicality of use, price

Cons: Missing the lens Hood

Opinion: I mounted it on the D7200, and optically speaking quietly holds up the comparison with the much more expensive 16 85 VR. The objective is very light, but to the touch it presents all in all well, and not too "cheap". The focus is lightning fast and hooks up without ever making mistakes (but this is also due to the D7200...). It's all plastic, the mechanics is from entry level as it is right that is given the price range (it is also found at 220 euros, new), but optically is formidable, crisp to 55 as at 200mm already at full aperture. At 200mm is very engraved, at F8 my specimen reaches the peak of sharpness that is remarkable from edge to edge, an unthinkable thing until a few years ago for an entry level optics. As if not enough the stabilizer VR2 works in an excellent way and compensates for up to 4 stops. If on the one hand the cheapness of the lens is paid in a plasticose mechanics (including attack), everything else has turned out beyond my expectations. The lightness of the lens, however, also has its cons: it is so light that in front of the D7200 almost does not feel, and at 200mm it is easy to run into the micro blur due to the vibration of the mirror, and there is no stabilizer that holds. Better to mount a third-party lens hood that weighs it down a bit. I do indeed just a note: the lack of the hood provided.
