I have a D7100 with Sigma 17-50 EX f/2.8, and a Nikon 55-200 VR f/4-5.6. You can see from the photos that the Sigma 17-50 is WAY sharper and better in general than the Nikon 55-200 (that Sigma is probably the best standard zoom for APS-C bodies). https://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Sigma/17-50mm-f-2.8-EX-DC-OS-HSM-Nikon https://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Nikon/Nikkor-AF-S-DX-VR-55-200 I'm looking for a replacement for the Nikon 55-200. I would like about the same focal range, let's say 50-300 mm. And...

Hello Basically I have an older Nikon D60 which I use mainly while out walking to snap any wildlife I see. It gets me out of the office! I usually become frustrated buy the slow (fuzzy) images it takes in varied outside conditions. I know the kit 55 to 200mm lens possibly does not help me too much. Out of frustration I am thinking maybe I should sell it and buy the D5500 or the D5300 with a better lens. Not really sure I want to move over to a full frame due to the cost. I know this is a hard...

Hi all, i have a D5100, and I'm planning a safari in Etosha (Namibia) in september: would the Tamron 70-300 VC (or the Nikon 70-300 VR) worth the extra money and wight compared to the kit lens 55-200 VR? I'm currently quite happy of the 55-200, light, decent autofocus, good sharpness, it's relatively slow, but I used it only in daylight on the alps, the only really bad thing is the manual focus ring. in your experience passing from equivalent 300mm to 450mm is it really worth? is the quality...

Hello everyone. I'm not sure if this is a strange occurrence or if it's supposed to be like this, but I had to ask. I've found that there is too much difference in FOV when comparing my Nikon 18-105mm to 55-200mm lens when they I put them at the same focal lenght. I've provided 3 sets of pictures(at roughly 55, 75 and 105mm). As you can see there is a noticable difference, most obvious one at 105mm. I'm aware the same focal length doesn't equal to same FOV, but I'm not sure there should be...

I've got the original Nikkor 18-200 AF-S DX 3.5-5.6 G VR that I've used for several years with my D50.  I picked up a bundle D5300 kit that came with the 18-55 AF-S DX 3.5-5.6 VRII and the 55-200 AF-S DX f-5.6 G IF-ED VR lenses.  According to the DXOMark tests with the D5300, these lenses should be about the same as far as detail/sharpness.  However, in tests on a tripod and taking identical shots on the D5300, the new lenses produce noticeably, noticeably sharper images with more detail than...

Hi, this is actually a re-post from the beginner forum because I was told this would be a better place to ask. I'll just copy it as it was, thanks. "Hi, I recently got a Nikkon 55-200mm VR for my D3200 and I've noticed that as I turn the zoom from 55 through to 200mm there is a faint but distinct "click" or "tick" noise as it passes through 85mm. This noise occurs only when going from the wider angle to telephoto direction, and occurs whether the lens is attached to my camera or not. Now I...

Now I just don't know if all 55-200mm's do that as it goes from short to long or something or whether there is something getting stuck in my camera that...

Between the two lenses which would be the better choice? I'm on a $175 budget so if you can suggest better lenses with a focal length of a 100mm as an option I'd be open to hearing them. I'll only be taking portraits and family photos up to 100mm so the vibration reduction feature isn't of much importance to me, I'm only interested in the differences in image quality. If it matters I'm a beginner in terms of serious photography but I've been using the d70 for 8 years as an point and shoot lol.
