cameralong Problem with nikkor 55-300mm VR
The pictures i take seem to be foggy i.e a bit powdery.. is it natural or is there a problem with my lens? My camera is nikon D3100. The picture was taken on a bright day(with a bit of cloud cover)..

Thanks in advance to everyone..

Hi there it doesn't look normal to me. But not sure why. Do you use any filter?

hi sweetcal001, your photos's contrast does look a bit low..
there are many possible reasons..
did you:
1. use any lens hood?
2. use any filter? if so, what is it?
3. Is the filter and lens dirty?
4. if you try take another photo with same lens, same direction, same settings, but using the 55mm setting, does it look any better or worse?

Thank you guys for replying..
My lens is attached with an UV filter. The guy from the shop from which I brought the cam said it wouldn't affect the pics and said it only adds up as a protection to the lens. Is the UV filter the culprit??

RE: Problem with nikkor 55-300mm VR
it's possible.
any filter would degrade the image quality, some worse than other.
But normally it's the worse when there is a light source directly in front.

So next time when this happens, try:
1. remove the filter
2. use the lens hood
and see if it make any difference?

and yeah does the photo still look that hazy when you shooting using the 55mm end?

Thanks for your reply. I'll try removing the filter next time and also check the 55 mm end.
