What can you expect out of a refurbished lens? If you’re expecting anything less than top-of-the-line quality at affordable prices, then you’re only selling them short. Specifically, the NIKON 55-300 F/4.5-5.6G VRII –REFURBISH edition of this top-quality lens is more than just a top-quality lens: it’s a zoom lens capable of offering DX-format D-SLR users reach 300mm telephoto shots with the clarity and sharpness you’d expect out of something brand new and right out of the factory.

It’s a beautiful lens, to be sure, but the real beauty is on the inside: this Refurbished Nikon 55-300mm VR is capable of producing high-quality zoomed shots no matter what your favorite subjects are, from landscapes to live events that require a more improvisational style. But let’s “zoom in” here at Adorama and ask ourselves what makes a lens like this used Nikon 55-300 tick:

  • All-in-one zooming. Serious photographers know that zooming is more than a simple press of the button: it can be a perilous journey fraught with obstacles, blurring, and out-of-focus shots. Luckily, the all-in-one zooming features of the Refurbished Nikon 55-300mm VR provide plenty of image stabilization—you have thee built-in VR II vibration reduction image stabilization system to thank for that. But there’s more here, including a High Refractive Index (HRI) lens, giving you clear and high-contrast images no matter what aperture or focal length you’re currently employing. That gives you the flexibility to handle an entire range of zoom levels, and gives you a level of versatility you won’t find with other zoom lenses.
  • Premium image stabilization. Let’s face it: when you’re talking about a capable zoom lens, you don’t know if the whole package is complete until you hear about the image stabilization. Without image stabilization, every zoomed-in picture will be blurry and you’ll ask yourself why you ever invested in a zoom lens in the first place. Luckily, the Refurbished Nikon 55-300mm VR lens features exactly what you need, including VR II image stabilization. The 3.0 stops will provide drastic blur reduction, giving you the sharp images you need even when you’re well zoomed-in.
  • Silence is golden. Specifically, when it comes to the performance of your lens. The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) offers the precise, consistent, high-speed, and ultimately quiet autofocus that you need to handle a variety of zoom levels on the fly. This will give you the flexibility to switch from long shot to close-up even if you’re at a live event that gives you no downtime between shots. And the silence of the motor adds to the professionalism of both you and your camera.
  • HD video is a must, even on a zoom lens—especially if that zoom lens offers a high degree of zooming power and capability. The stabilization on the Refurbished Nikon 55-300mm VR ensures that you’ll capture HD video that’s as blur-free as possible, producing a wide range of beautiful video shots.
  • “Accessories” here at Adorama includes a rear lens cap, a snap-on front lens cap, a lens hood, and a 90-day warranty that will ensure you get the most out of your lens experience and keep it well-protected, even when you’re feeling adventurous.

Long story short: the NIKON 55-300 F/4.5-5.6G VRII –REFURBISH is a lens capable of handling the highest level of demands you could place on any zoom lens, whether you’re talking about a new or refurbished Nikon.
