Matthieu Cramers says:

I am considering getting myself into fotography, especially landscapes and wildlife I guess, how does the combo of Nikon D3200 and the VR 55-300 mm apply to that? I guess I would take my camera along on treks, so if you know lighter combo’s please let me know (same capabilities though). Thanks

Bence Orosz says:

Dirt Farmer says:

Great job on this video. You showed exactly what I wanted to see in a short amount of time.

Michel Madaire says:

thank you, great video, keep up the gooood work.long long honeymoon, cool name btw lol.

Luis Cannon says:

I have this lens and agree with everything you said, great for zooming in on flowers from 3 meters, and blurring out the background whilst concentrating on the subject.

itsjust me says:

hello. I just found your video while searching for the difference in lens. I just bought a Nikon d5200 to take pictures mostly of my children. It comes with the 18-55mm lens which is perfect but at sporting events and plays i’m not able to zoom in enough on video. Could you recommend which one would be suitable for me, 55-200mm or 55-300mm? thank you so much!!

nikon d3200 says:

come on any true artist knows dx is not full frame even though the f stop on this lens is 4 to 5 get close and work the 300 mm zoom will get bokeh I know I love this lens the d3200 is a good camera

This review is awesome and informative that I was looking on youtube. However, I have a question, as you have mentioned 55-300 mm is little bit slow lens but can get great details in like wild life photograph. I would like to take picture like flying birds or running animal. Which one would be suitable for me, 55-200 or 55-300 mm. Please suggest. Thanks 🙂

Sigma Tech says:

Hi guys, this video is 7 years old. You most likely want to be using a VR lens. I recommend the Tamron 70-300, but right now I’m tied between that and the Nikon 55-300.
