Regardless if you are a professional photographer or hobbyist this is a great lens. Its' action is smooth and precise. The pictures produced are of the highest quality as expected from a Nikon Nikkor lens.
The downside is that it is a bit heavy, (Approx.) 29.3 oz. (830g) I have large and strong hands which allows me to handle it fairly easily. HOWEVER, I can certainly see it being a problem for some people with smaller hands and or less strength in their wrists and fingers.
With that being said, there is no problem if you are using a tripod, haha!
Good luck, hope this review helps you & happy shooting!
I bought this lens because I hated having to change lenses in order to get close-ups, and then missing the picture anyway. Plus, the inconvenience of having to carry a separate lens which just added more weight on my shoulder. This way, one lens does it all, and I don't worry about dust or dirt getting in between during the change over of lenses. The new lens is a bit heavy, but for the convenience, I will deal with it.
Replaces kit lenses 18-55 and 55-300 with faster f-stop and convenience of all-in-one. Biggest tradeoff is how big and heavy the lens is, but balances well with my D7100. But would not have put this heavy a lens on my D5100. I am very disappointed with the polarizing filter that came in this bundle as it gives more detail to mountains it seems to add a hazy ,dirty,noisy appearance to the sky. Definitely recommend lens but not filter.
