Great affordable lens, but make sure you get it with VR!

Advantages: Excellent lens with many features. VR gives sharp shots even at long focal lengths. Smooth focus.
Disadvantages: For the price, none that I can think of. I am happy that I brought one.

...If you are looking for a starter telephoto lens for your Nikon dSLR then look no further. This 55-200mm lens is ideal for wildlife or sports shots (equivalent to 90-300mm zoom because of 1.5x conversion factor), or other outdoor activities. Now the versio ...

Review of Nikon Zoom-Nikkor telephoto zoom lens - 55 mm - 200 mm F/4.0-5.6 for Nikon F

The Canon 55-250mm IS is what Sherlock Holmes would use!

Advantages: nice zoom, sharp focus, premium feel
Disadvantages: some pincushion and barrel distortion, slight curvature of focal plane, some colour fringing

...Since my previous review about the 18-55 IS lens was very well received, I decided to sort of iterate on that and review little kit lens' bigger brother, the Canon EF-S 55-250 IS lens, which is in fact another kit lens, a sort of continuation of the previ ...

Review of Canon EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS

Review of Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

Excellent lens to have in your collection

Advantages: Cheap, solid, light, amazing picture quality, great detail, low light ability.
Disadvantages: No lens motor

...Nikkor F1.8 50mm is a cheap fixed focal length lens ideal for portraits and low light conditions for Nikon AF DSLR camera bodies. It has no focusing motor of its own and as such it won't work in a Nikon D40, D60, D3000 series, but works like on charm ...
