Lens Test: Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G DX ED VR AS-S

 

Nikon's longest zoom for cameras with APS-C-size sensors (DX format), this 5.5X 55–300mm f/4.5–5.6G VR ($360, street) scales up to the full-frame equivalent of 82.5–450mm. It offers two elements of ED glass, a high-refractive-index glass element (a DX...

Lens Review: Nikon 55-200mm F/4-5.6G AF-S VR DX IF-ED

 

Also, like the Canon, this Nikon lens lacks a focus distance scale. On this lens the manual focus ring looks almost like an afterthought tacked on to the front end of the lens.

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

 

Here's a deal: An upgrade of Nikon's original digital-only tele kit zoom, this new 55-200mm f/4-5.6 ($250, street) adds Vibration Reduction and a number of optical improvements for only $70 more. A 3.6X 82-300mm equivalent zoom, it's not expected to...

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

 

Wouldn't it be great to get some serious telephoto zoom reach without filling up most of your gadget bag with a big clunky lens? The Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX VR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED fits the bill with a remarkably compact design, and it's less than half...

Very compact and lightweight ; Internal focusing so front element neither rotates nor extends ; Impressive optical quality at the long end of the zoom range

Doesn't have the telephoto reach of larger 70-300mm lenses ; Could be sharper at short and medium focal lengths ; Plastic lens mount

Optical quality proved best at longer telephoto settings and, overall, it's a good buy at the price.

Best Entry Level Lens: AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF ED

 

This new 3.6x telephoto zoom lens from Nikon makes the Vibration Reduction image stabilisation system available to everyone. This feature compensates for the image blurring caused by camera shake, which is particularly prevalent when hand-holding with...

Product Specifications

High-power 4.3x Telephoto Zoom-Nikkor lens (Approximates the picture angle performance of a 105-450mm lens on 35mm SLR). Vibration Reduction (VRII) minimizes the effects of camera shake allowing photographers to shoot handheld at as many as 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images. When used on Nikon DX format DSLR Two Nikon Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements deliver superior optical performance for both digital and 35mm photography. ED glass minimizes chromatic aberrations, contributing to superb contrast and resolution performance. Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range. Focus as close as 4.9 ft throughout entire zoom range. Non-Rotating front element provides for convenient use of circular polarizing filters and the Nikon Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System. A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast and quiet autofocusing, along with quick switching between autofocus and manual operation (M/A and M). A nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening, out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
