AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
I had more expectation from this lens. But it's not giving output in that course. Photos are not that much sharp or Zoom is not upto expected level. Function is not smooth.

Lint inside the main optical lenses
When I first purchased this lens for my Nikon D7100, I never imagined that I would get a defective lens.
There was lint inside the internal lenses with no option to clean them. I would probably ignore a small piece if it was at the edge of the lens but when you have (3) spots of lint in the middle of the lens, quality needs to be improved. This is my first time owning a Nikon product and so far, I'm debating the purchase.

This lens takes decent photos, but I exchanged one because the view kept jumping, while the lens made a clicking noises. The second hasn't developed that problem. However, both lenses had terrible zoom action....the mechanism is hard to turn, especially at full zoom. I had hoped it would loosen up with use, but so far it has not.

I had this lens for 3 months and when I took the camera out of my camera bag (lens attached) the lens broke off! I am the only one who uses this camera and it was never dropped and it has always been handled with the utmost of care. I was totally shocked when the lens broke because Nikon has a very good reputation.
