Pros: Shipped quickly and very well packaged...arrived in perfect condition. This lens adds another level of capability to my Nikon D3300. While I haven't had time to experiment much with it the photos I have taken came out great. Very happy with it so far.
Cons: None yet...other than size and weight, which is not a fault of the lens but a by product of its capabilities.
Other Comments: A worthwhile addition to my camera accessories and capabilities.

Pros: good images, no defects i can find after several weeks use
Cons: a little bit bulkier than my last dslr with zoom lens, the fear it may die on me earlier because it's a refurb.
Other Comments: so far, it works like it's brand new, and i got it at a fraction of the cost of a new one. very happy so far.

Completely free of any marks and looks like it is in brand new condition. [...] Great deal when compared to manufacturer's retail price of $399.95. Very happy with this purchase.

5 out of 5 stars   Refurbished Nikon Lens and Buydig customer service
By John (Florida) May 12, 2015
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens - Factory Refurbished (NK55300VRRB)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: This is an amendment to an earlier review. As stated earlier, the lens is fantastic and just as described. Shipping was as expected and the lens appropriately packaged. However, through a secondary site there was a problem. This was addressed through that site with no resolution. Once mentioned to customer service at Buydig, the problem was addressed and resolved in short order. I do like the lens but it is secondary to my appreciation of the good people at Buydig. As a result, they have earned a customer for life.

5 out of 5 stars   Refurbished I think Not!!
By Barrel Racer (NJ) September 09, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens - Factory Refurbished (NK55300VRRB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I purchased this lens for my Nikon D60 and couldn't be happier. I did some online research and really couldn't afford a new lens. I found Buydig.com site and read some of the reviews of the refurbished lens' which were all positive so I thought why not. Well I'm so glad I did! I received it promptly with all the Nikon paperwork it even smelled new. Lol I truly think this must have been a open box item so it can't be sold as new. But take it from me it's new. Broke it in at Disney and got some incredible shots. Thank you Buydig.com.

5 out of 5 stars   So far so good
By JrodLA89 (Los Angeles, CA) May 16, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens - Factory Refurbished (NK55300VRRB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I was very skeptical when i purchased this lens, but given the fact that it is covered by Nikon's 90 warranty even after being refurbished was great. Shipping was on time, packaging was adequate, and the description was also accurate. Most importantly, i got a great deal since this lens cost $399 plus tax at the Nikon store and i paid $205 with no tax and free shipping! no doubt that i will be buying more things at buydig.com
Cons: None

Pros: I've been waiting for an affordable price on a good telephoto lens that would let me get closer than the standard 55mm lens the camera comes with. This was it! Love the zoom and it came at a terrific price.
