Great all in 1 lens....Excellent lens!...Images look great, quick AF-S and image stabilization....I am compromising Image Quality for convenience, but so far I can not really see any major issues....I can get all of the great close up shots and the immediately zoom out to get a great panoramic shot without stopping to fumble with lenses....I ride around National Parks and highway around the USA, I mostly pull over and shot from my motorcycle when a good shot presents it self.

Love it....Good one...Ask any SLR shooter, a nifty fifty prime lens has always been in their arsenal from the time they moved up from a kodak (or a smartphone)! Some plastic in this one but it has not let me down....Love the lense, it is everything I had hoped it would be, but due to the ignorance of the Best Buy employees I ended up returning the lense to Best Buy and then purchasing it AGAIN at a camera store....It's an excellent lens for portraiture: f1.8 means you will be able to get shallower DOF that will make your subjects pop... it definitely beats any zoom that is in the market in this regard.

Good lens....Good option...Crisp, clear, stable images....It has the Vibration reduction, which is great when taking hand held shots, but you definitely need to turn it off when you are taking photos on a Tripod....Later that night I took the lens to a High School Football game and in the first half, the sun was still up and the pictures were once again awesome....The zoom range filled a gap in my lenses and permitted me to capture the images from a distance that I might not have otherwise been able to get.

nice lens...Go for it....Incredibly clear and stable shots....Great for sneaking up on wildlife....or a great alternative to actually walking closer to other things that you would not have to sneak up on if you are just lazy....Because it does have a great zoom length, you may want to think about getting a tripod for the shooting subjects that are real far away (such as the moon)....It has been my personal experience with the Nikon - AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f - 4.5-5.6G ED VR Telephoto Zoom Lens - Black - Black a great ease of use, crystal clear shots and amazing telephoto clarity of the images I photograph.

Fantastic lens...Awesome lens...The various image stabilization modes allow for action shots and stills with extreme clarity....I cannot think of a purchase that I have ever had so much enjoyment learning to use, using, and getting the most AMAZING results from....The new Canon EF 100-400 lens is a high quality lens much improved over it is predecessor with the cumbersome slide focus....I love the included tripod mounting foot & collar -- the lens is far too heavy to traditionally mount your camera base on the tripod, and leave the weight of the lens hanging from the lens-mount of the camera itself -- the mounting foot solves that -- you mount the lens to the tripod, and the much-lighter camera body hangs "from the lens".

nice lense...Is good....The Image Stabilization is top notch....This zoom lens is a must have to carry along with for some great snaps or as I like to say, if you are going to be out and about with a little comotion going on whatever that may be, and you do not want to be bothered swapping out lenses, yes, hook this one up and you will be good to go for the event!!...I have taken a few pics with the telephoto lens, mostly back-of-the-room shots of school programs that turned out great, even in fairly low light (still learning ISO settings on the camera)....the package is good as is, however if I had one wish it would be for a f/2.8 just so I would not have to be dependent on a flash unit for certain pictures.

Love it...It's ok...50mm is a good focal length for portraits though, and this lens can focus on something as close as a foot away from the camera so you can get some good closeups....Given everything else was real-time, including finding and putting on hold the product in stock at the nearest store, it seems reasonable to expect that there should be in-company computer communication that is commensurate with comparative network inventory systems....The revised Canon 50mm is a nice improvement from the prior model - with a larger (and more quiet) focus ring and better auto-focus (along with sharp photos and a great price) - this one lens any photographer should not be without.

Best Lens....cool stuff....Stabilization works great....I did purchase a Hoya HMC UV filter for the 18-200mm to protect the objective lens glass and it has worked well to keep lens flare to a minimum....You do not have to change the lens at all once you have this lens - the pictures came out looking very professional and I am an amateur photographer who previous to using this DSLR has always used a basic digital camera....This lens quickly drops to the 5.6 f stop setting when you start to zoom and in a gymnasium, theater or foot ball field you will quickly feel the pinch of not enough light to maintain a reasonably fast shutter speed so the action does not get blurred.
