Nikkor 55-200 VR vs 55-300 VR
Dec 13, 2011

Hi All,
I am novice to photography.

I see the Nikor 55-200mm and 55-300 VR lenses are available for discouted prices i.e $149 & $250 respectively from amazon.

I know the 55-300 VR has better build and more zoom range but weighs more than 55-200 lense. I am particularly interested in taking birds and other animals photos.

1)Will the zoom of 55-200 VR is enough to take a close photo of bird on a tree?In that case i think 55-200 is enough for my purpose.

2) Will there is any further price reductions of these lenses if i wait till Christmas?

Thanks in advance.
