From time to time, someone here asks about how the 55-300VR compares to other lenses. I thought I'd post a few pics I took at a local lagoon the other day. It was in the middle of the day so the light was nothing special but this may give you an idea of what this lens can do with limited pp. These are jpegs, btw.
While I'm not sure the 55-300 is quite as sharp as my 70-300 (damaged and in need of repair), it's reasonably sharp, light and inexpensive.
I never know what I'm going to find at the lagoon. Sometimes it's turtles or birds, other times, not much of anything in the way of wildlife. This time it was little critters.
I shot the other day at a local lagoon.
