Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens (Refurbished)
With this powerful zoom lens on the front of your Nikon DSLR, you’ll be able to take crisp close-up shots of distant subjects thanks to its 5.5x zoom ratio and built-in image-stabilization system.
From portraits to close-up shots of distant wildlife, this zoom lens does it all. The wider end of the range is perfect for everyday photography, easily capturing group photos, landscape shots, and other casual snaps. When you need a closer shot, though, the 300mm end provides 5.5x magnification, letting you fill the frame with distant subjects.
Less Blur, More Details
Rather than creating blurry images when you’re shooting from an unstable position, this lens uses an integrated vibration-reduction system to keep your shots sharp. Even if your hand shakes when you hit the shutter, you’re shooting from a moving vehicle, or you have the lens zoomed all the way in, the VR system steps in to keep photos crisp.
Fast, Quiet Autofocus
Subjects come into focus quickly and quietly thanks to this lens’ Silent Wave Motor autofocus, which produces very little noise as it hones in on a razor-sharp image. This is especially useful when shooting video, where the noise of a lens motor would drown out the sound of your subjects.
