Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens
Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm f4.5 zoom lens offers a nice zoom range and a feature set. The difference between this model and the pricer VR IF Zoom Lens model is the lack of internal focusing this lens won't focus quite as fast and the entire lens will move to focus. But, this lens is also significantly lighter and less expensive. Nikon has included their VR II image stabilization, nine blade diaphragm and integrated coatings. And as with most lenses, this Nikon has a quiet autofocus motor.
