Used this lens a couple of times now. In alaska the auto focus could not focus on a glacier, it kept hunting, i was guessing due to the lack of contrest between glacier and sky. Last summer in Maine while whale watching it worked great,
Well… It works perfect EVEN in low light situations. In my room, with the curtains mostly drawn, it takes some amazing shots with huge details. On a Nikon D7000.
Of course the focal length does vary as you zoom but I think you meant minimum aperture varies as you zoom?
I have nikon d5200..with kit lens of 18-55mm..now I want to upgrade with a telephoto zoom lens..so I want to know which 1 is better between af-s 55-300 and af-p 70-300 overall for nikon d5200?? please help me out..I m in big confusion to choose..
I am confused about the same. Which lens did you finally go with ?
In terms of image quality, AF speed and precision und VR performance, the AF-P 70-300 mm wins hands down.
I have Nikon D3200 is it best to buy Nikon 55-300mm for zoom shot….

I want to know whether there is any ratio between lens’s focal length in mm and actual subject’s distance from sensor in meter/feet ?
what do you think about AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
I think it’s a good walk around lens. I have the 18-105 and I like that lens. It takes nice pictures and the 18-140 has a better reach.
I am from Sri lanka. I own d3200 with Kit lens and 55-300 all nikkor lenses. Recently I was planning to get 18-300 nikkor, but after reading the reviews I am now bit hesitant to buy the same. Can you please advise me on this matter and what’s u r opinion on getting a bigger zoom lens. Thank you
