Product Overview

The Nikon AF-S DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G IF-ED VR is a lightweight compact lens by telephoto zoom standards (one of the smallest DSLR lenses on the market offering this focal range). The AF-S 55-200mm VR is only 2cm longer than the standard AF-S 18-55mm VR kit lens, and the diameter of the two lenses is almost the same. The AF-S DX 55-200mm VR zoom lens weighs 335 grams compared to the Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm VR zoom which is a bit lighter at 265 grams.

Excellent Clarity

The above images show the field of view provided with the Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6G VR standard kit zoom lens set to its respective maximum wide-angle and telephoto positions on a DX format SLR. (Approx. 27mm and 82.5mm equivalent coverage in 35mm terms)

Focal length comparison 135mm versus 200mm field of view

Forget Blurry Images

The Nikkor AF-S DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G IF-ED VR zoom provides a telephoto field of view up to 300mm in 35mm equivalent terms (DX format provides 1.5x crop factor vs focal length of the lens). Compared to the standard 18-55mm kit zoom lens, the 55-200mm telephoto lens lets you zoom in considerably closer on the subject from further away. Forget about blurry photos and shaky videos; Vibration Reduction (VR) helps keep your photos sharp and your videos steady. On its own, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is a great multipurpose lens. As a companion to the 18-55mm kit lens that comes with many DX-format DSLRs, it offers continuous coverage across the entire focal length range from 18mm to 200mm.

Zoom Further 

Most digital SLR cameras are sold in a kit form with a standard 18-55mm type of zoom lens. While suitable for more common type of photo situations, such as group shots of people or wide-angle landscapes, a standard kit lens is not as practical for capturing distant subjects. The solution is to invest in a secondary telephoto zoom lens that provides the additional focal range required to zoom in on the subject from further away, ideal for sports, wildlife or candid photography.

Outstanding Clarity

At maximum aperture and 55mm, sharpness is excellent in the centre and falls just short of good levels towards the edges of the frame. Stopping down improves performance across the frame, with peak sharpness being achieved at f/8. Here clarity is outstanding in the centre and excellent towards the edges of the frame. Zooming at 200mm sharpness is excellent, with good clarity being produced in the centre of the frame and fair performance towards the edges. Stopping down to between f/8 and f/16 results in very good sharpness in the centre and good clarity towards the edges of the frame.
