Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Review Round-Up

 

The Nikkor AF-S 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED DX delivered a more convincing performance compared to its kit companion (18-55mm DX). The resolution is very high throughout the zoom range (best at 55mm) and there's only a slight decrease in contrast at large...

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

 

average sharpness at 200 mm,, significant vignetting at all focal lengths,, weak work against bright light,, a lot of plastics in the barrel.

The summary of this lens’s tests results is going to be very positive for one reason - the Nikon company adjusted its price well to its possibilities. The optical properties seem to be one of the better in the amateur class of 55-200 mm instruments; in...

Nikon's DX format telephoto zoom benefits from vibration reduction...

Vibration Reduction, price, mid-focal length performance

Plastic mount, resolution at 200mm

As a long zoom to complement the kit lens supplied with Nikon's D40 and D40x - and maybe even the D80 - there's no doubt the 55-200mm VR fits the bill. Its light weight won't unbalance the camera, the price won't break the bank and the Vibration...

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

 

This Nikon non-VR optic incorporates a pair of Extra Low Dispersion (ED) elements within its optical array of 12 elements in 9 groups...

Quick AF, resolution

Not much

Really a budget or starter lens, reasonably priced, but lacking the fast maximum aperture and expensive glass of more professional lenses

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

 

Available in both black and silver, this lens is Nikon's offering in the popular 'first extra lens' category of 55-200mm, a handy length as it starts where most standard zooms finish. We take a look at how this one performs.

Smallest and lightest in class; Good performance in centre.; Usable manual focus ring; Good value for money

Edge performance not as good as the centre
