Not sure what you mean, but it will operate at whatever focal length between 55 and 300mm that you like. All telephoto lenses are that way.

Yes, this lens has Vibration Reduction (VR) and is compatible with the D3000 since the lens has the internal motor for AF. In the model of the lens you will see VR for Vibration Reduction and AF-S that means the lens has the built-in motor for autofocus.

Question

Will the Lens AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR be compatible withh Nikon D5100?

I am a newbie to photography. I own this lens now but I am skeptical about its compatibility with Nikon D5100. I see a Note in the lens manual which states as follows: DX lenses are for use only with DX-format digital single-lens reflex cameras such as the D90 or D300 series.
Can anybody please address this issue ?
Thanks in advance.

I agree the 70-300 is much better. You may well also want to use a tripod when shooting at 300mm, the actual focal length on a DX DSLR is 450mm, which means you probably want to have a shutter speed at around 1/500 or faster, if not using a tripod.

Yes!

For the price, this is an excellent lens for situations where there is plenty of light and you need lots of zoom.

It is not as good for low light photography, since it can only open up to f/4.5-f/5.6. Some cameras may have problems focusing at f/5.6 in dim light, like indoors under artificial light..

Question

I just purchased a D7000 and the shop recomended this lens for birding, I'm not happy. Are you going to make a multiplier for this lens?

My pictures have no improvement over my Cannon w/ 70-300mm Zoom. Birds are just out of range with not enough clarity.

Probably not- The maximum aperture is f4.5 so a 2x extender would make it f8, Not enough light to focus.
Look at Nikons lens catalog for wiich extender will work on what lens. Nikon usa.com. That will tell you everything you need to know about Nikon lenses.
Also, don't forget the 1.5x multipication factor for your D7000,makes your lens 105-400mm f4.5-f5.6

Unfortunately, this lens is not fast enough to work well with teleconverters. Nikon AF systems (except D4 & D800) need an effective aperture of f5.6. Adding a teleconverter, even the 1.4x will take this lens beyond that. The 55-300 is a very good value. If you want a little more reach in a zoom, the 80-400 will get you more, but at 4x the price, and it is still not fast enough for teleconverters. It sounds like your needs may be up in the price range of the exotics. The 200-400 f4 zoom will take a teleconverter and get you out to almost 600mm. Similarly, the fast telephotos will take teleconverters as well, but we are talking serious $$$ for all of these lenses. Unfortunately, the level of optics that you are looking for is not really available at the price point of this lens. Renting a lens might be a good way to figure out which way to go.

In some situations. I use it to take scenic closeups. I.e., sunsets, flowing water, vegetation, people, or animals with a distorted background. The 18-135 mm AF VR works very well for landscapes.

what body are you using? if it's one of the new ones (d3100, d5100 or d7000), or one of the big ones (d700, d3s/d3x), amp up the iso and you may get away with a 70-300 f/4-5.6. if one of the old ones, you need to get hold of a brighter lens (around f/2.8 constant or f/3.5 constant). don't use flash, it doesn't work at such distances. also, a monopod or a tripod with a loose head is good so you won't get tired holding a body with a larger lens, and it also helps with hand tremor.

Yes it will. This lens has the built in focus motor.....the D80 body does not. AF-S means it uses the Silent Wave Technology focus motor to focus. The 55-300 VR lens is an excellent lens for this camera.

No it will not function on FM or FT-3 body. There are no CPU contacts in these older film cameras so you will have no way to control the F Stops, No auto focus & No VR.

Question

What bags/backpacks are recommended for a D7000 with 55-300 lens?

I have a D7000 with 55-300 lens and am having trouble figuring out which bags and backpacks would be best suited for me. It seems that many of the bags cannot fit a 55-300 lens, at least not mounted to the camera. I am planning to get a 18-55 lens in the near future so I would like for the bag to be able to fit that lens in as well. Also, as an amateur I would prefer not to have to spend to much money on the bag/backpack.

I'm very happy with my Tenba Shootout Sling, medium size. At $110, it might be a little pricey for you. Lowepro makes a similar model for a little less, but the quality doesn't compare to the Tenba. The bottom compartment just fits my D7100 with the 55-300mm lens attached, plus plenty of room for my 18-105mm and 50mm lenses, flash unit, two bottles of water, cell phone, and rain shell, along with a tripod hanging off the side. Also, if I ever get one of those huge super-fast teles, I can take out a middle barrier and slip the camera and lens through the top.

The one bag that we offer that would fit your camera and the two lenses that you will have at some point in the future - is found at the following link: http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Produ....
