Hey Guys, I bought a Nikon D5300 because of its small body and nice features..In the kit contained a 18-55 Lens! The kit lens takes REALLY sharp photos I was surprised ( but with no zoom ) We love the camera and we bought this set up to travel with knowing Nikon was releasing a smaller compact version of their 18-300 zoom lens! I received the new lens this weekend and I've been playing around with it and I'm seeing very grainy photos when zoomed in! Is this normal for a 900.00 lens? I know I will loose something on a zoom lens like this but GRAINY is not good for almost a 1000.00 Lens! The reason we bought this D5300 was knowing Nikon was coming out with this lens! Swapping lens is NOT what we wanted to do when we travel... Now my situation is, I can return the lens with no issue but I'm stuck with the camera its out of the return period! I guess EBAY lol... Maybe I'm doing something wrong! Any advise ?
