Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G AF-S VR DX

Available Today

The Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S VR DX lens is a versatile and ultra-compact telephoto zoom lens that offers a 3.6x zoom range and reasonably good image quality at a very low price. The Vibration Reduction (VR) system allows handheld shooting at longer shutter speeds, equivalent to about 3 stops of stabilization. This is a G-type Nikkor lens with no mechanical aperture rings, and has a Silent Wave Motor for rapid and silent autofocusing.

No, its not a 70-200 f/2.8 VR, or even close to it. But it’s a small, lightweight, reasonably sharp and easy to use lens at a spectacularly good price. A very nice travel lens or longer range walkaround lens that is much better than I expected. It’s not often I get to say this about Nikon lenses, but this is a great bargain!
