Describe Yourself: Getting started
I have a Nikon D40 with a 18-55mm kit lens. I wanted a zoom lens that wasn't too expensive. I 'studied' the different onlines which one to get with consideration to what I want and the price I was willing to shell out.I like the way Rockwell gave reviews of the different lenses. This lens fit the bill. I tried looking for this in other stores and learned that it's sold for $250. I decided to check out Adorama. When I was there in the NYC store at 18th Street, I was given lots of options by Larry. I ended up buying a Nikon refurbished 55-200 lens for a lesser price.
I honestly was worried at the beginning but the lens worked just like brand-new. In fact, it is a very hardworking lens. While holding it to shoot the subjects I want, it searches for the correct focus. I am able to choose whether I would want the nearest subject or the background subject in focus.
There were times that I was disappointed when using this lens though. I can't use it with subjects within 3 feet, it will come out blurred. It also does not respond properly with poor lighting unlike the 18-55mm. I also had blurry outputs. I wonder if it's me or the lens. Either way, this lens comes with good things and the not so good things. It's another hardworking lens at an affordable price.
