answer 1
A zoom lens covers all focal lengths between it's minimum, and maximum. In a 35mm, or Full Frame (FX) format, a 55-200mm lens provides all focal lengths from 55mm to 200mm, so it covers: 63mm, 94mm, 173mm, etc. On a DX camera, that same lens is really more of an 82.5mm to 300mm zoom lens, and 55mm is not in the works. The 1.5X Crop Factor factors it out. To get the 55mm Field Of View out of a lens on a DX camera, it has to be a 36mm minimum focal length (which gives a 54mm focal length Field Of View, in reality) to 37mm, which will provide 55.5mm Filed Of View on a DX camera. Of course, you could just go with a 35mm minimum focal length, to anything above 37mm. So a 35-70mm zoom would have the true 55mm Field Of View, when set slightly above the 35mm mark. So would a 35-105mm lens, a 35-300mm lens, etc.

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.

Question

just bought a d3100 for taking pictures of my kids, which lens is more practical and better for me the 55-300 or 70-300?

i've had the d3100 for a year. i've taken some nice pictures of my 2 year old outside playing and a couple of nice indoor portraits with a backdrop. i'd like to buy a flash (been researching the sb-700) and a new lens. i've been reading about the 55-300 and 70-300 but not sure which is better for my use. don't want to spend the extra $200 if the 55-300 is just as good for what i need it for than the 70-300. also any comments on flashes i'd appreciate. was looking at sb-600 before but heard tha was discontinued.

answer 2
The best portrait focal lengths are either 85mm, or 105mm ,or 127mm, or 135mm, depending upon who you ask. Even pros disagree about this, and it is largely a matter of personal taste. If you got a kit lens with your camera it may include such focal lengths. Usually the kit lens is an 18-55mm, which in DX format is a 27-82.5mm. The 55mm setting gives 82.5mm field of view on a DX camera, and that is almost 85mm, so it can produce some passable portraits. If your kit lens was a 55-200 that gives the 82.5-300mm field of view, so portrait lengths are covered in that. Still, a zoom lens is softer-focus wise-than is a prime (single focal length) lens. For great portraits use a prime lens.

Nikon's AFS-DX Micro-Nikkor 85mm F/3.5G ED VR lens ($529.95 new) would provide a 127.5mm field of view on a DX camera, and that is a good portrait focal length. It is also a true (1.0X, full life size) Macro lens, and has 9 aperture blades...which produces good 'Bokeh' (background blur). If you can afford that 85mm lens, get one. You may save a bit by getting it used, or factory refurbished. Be sure to get the right one. Nikon makes several 85mm lenses which are FX (Full Frame) items for their professional cameras, and they are more expensive. The one I mentioned is their only DX format 85mm lens at this time. Until you can afford the 85mm lens, you can get by with any zoom which has 55mm, or above, in its range.

The 55-300mm will be as good as the 70-300, generally, but either may have some benefits, or detriments, the other doesn't. I haven't done side by side comparison tests, so I can't give details. Any of NIkon's flashes will be good. The more expensive ones have more convenience, and higher power, so they can be used from further away. I use an SB-300, with a cheap, foldable, soft box attached ( an Opteka I got on Amazon for about $7.00). I shoot from about 6 to 8 feet away, and it works fine. The head is tilt-able. It does not have all the whiz bang features of the costlier models, but I don't need them. The soft box diffuses, and softens, both the light, and the shadows, making things less stark, and glarey.

For general images of the kids, any zoom lens can do, and be convenient to let you change focal length at the twist of a wrist. 18-300mm would be handy. The 55-200mm can work. It is a matter of personal taste. For really memorable portraits of the head & shoulders, and head to waist, variety, get that 85mm lens, and a softbox for your flash. If you want to use several flash units-one in front, one on the side, one behind as a hair light, etc-get a costly flash which can be triggered by a main flash. If you want the SB-600, it may still be found in stores / warehouses, if you look hard enough. Check around, and see. If you can't find one, go with something else.

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..

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.

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.

answer 2
mine were not good, but I think mine was a setting issue. I had the Nikkor 55- 200 VR.
Doesn't make a difference if you have a great lense when the "user" aka ME, was not prepared.

Question

Is this VR or VR II?

The name of the lens states that it is a VR lens, but in overview it is VR II. However in other lenses which are VR II, the name has also the VR II icon!

I just clicked that the answer that it is a VR, not a VRII is helpful, but it is not, and it is wrong, according to the Manual, which states that it has "Vibration Reduction (VRII). Vibration reduction (VRII) reduces blur caused by camera shake, allowing shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would otherwise be the case (Nikon measurements; effects vary with the photographer and shooting conditions). This increases the range of shutter speeds available and permits hand-held, tripod-free photography in a wide range of situations."

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.
