    Re: Should I buy Nikon 55-200mm VR lens?

    Thank you for replying.
    How does the plastic lens mount feel? This is really the only thing I was worried about. Also if the rest of the lens feels like the 18-55 and takes as good a photo, I should be ok.
    Thanks again.

    I just took out both lenses and compared the two and honestly the 55-200 just looks like the bigger brother to the 18-55mm. The build quality is identical and the lens mount looks solid enough to where you don't have to worry. If you don't feel like you'll break the 18-55 then don't worry. I swap them regularly and never once think "wow these are cheap and I need to be careful".

    Thanks so much, you have eased my mind. Also I just thought of this as well .The 55-200 will be at f4 at 55mm as the 18-55 is at f5.6 at 55mm. Good deal all around.

    Ha-ha, no worries about the iPhone. I actually used to think that my Galaxy s3 took great pics.

    No problem, I use this place so much for advice/concerns that I try to give any help if I can. The two definitely compliment each other. Post your thoughts and maybe some shots after you get it, I'm curious what your impression will be.

    Ok, as promised i posted some shots over at the Lens/telephoto section.
    I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how well it performs for such an inexpensive lens.

    I'm glad you like the performance already. I agree, you can't really beat the lens at that price and you'll only get better with it. Here are a few shots I took when I first got it experimenting with the range, bokeh and black and white.
