We kind of need a question..as in "Will this lens work on my DXXXX?"
or ????

What do you want to know?

Have you contacted the seller about the lens not being as listed?

As Sheri says, what problem are you asking about? Your question as posed is not clear.

Hi Ed,

There are three versions of the Nikkor AF 70-300mm:

1. AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6D ED
2. AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6G
3. 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED IF AF-S VR

Both #1 and #2 have screwdriver type AF drive systems and require a camera body with an AF motor built into it. #1 has been discontinued for several years. #2 is still in production though it is optically the worst lens in the Nikkor line.

#3 is optically the best of the three and has a AF motor built into the lens so it will fully support AF when mounted on a: D40, D40X, D60, D3000, D5000, D3100, D5100, and D3200.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Went ahead and bought the 2161 from Canada for 415.00 shipped...
Like a kid waiting on Christmas, well actually it is my Christmas present..
Question about lens cleaning..Can I use somthing like windex and a
lens cleaning cloth..I always keep a filter on..But in Hawaii earlier
this year I did take the filter off for shot time to see how it affected shots.
While I,m asking. We Cruise vacation every year..And I normally use a
point and shoot nikon for beach shots..What about the D5100 with the new 55-300 ..am I asking for trouble exposing my equipment to all that sand..
Going to Aruba,Grand Turk, And Dominica next April.
Maybe pick up some Rum..Later Ed

Please, not Windex. Windex and other similar cleaners contain ammonia and butyl cellosolve which will damage the lens' coatings over time, maybe not from using it once or twice, but after a while, the coating will be stripped or be damaged.

I recommend Purosol Optical Cleaner. It's an enzyme based optical cleaner, and it works exceedingly well, even on sticky salt spray deposits, which get on lenses during cruises.

Purosol is available at all major camera stores.
