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

 

Great lens for the price. Can't anyone beat a lens at this price range with Vibration Reduction. Very great photos, just not great in low light situations, which is very understandable giving the price range. Cant beat it for the price.

VR, Sharp, great photo quality, and light

Plastic Mount, not great in low light situations

I bought it from buydig.com. This website is trustable. I have Nikon D5000 comes with lens 18-55mm RV. Now, I got this lens (55-200mmRV), become a complete set for me to travel.

Good deal, light weight, fast focus, and solid

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

 

VR is good to have on the long end when no tripod is available, great warranty support from Nikon. The VR system works very very good, which can make up for the slow speed of this lens. I can hand hold racked out to 200mm at 1/80. If you don't need...

well-built, solid and reliable

I've not found

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

 

I just got this lens and I am very impressed with it. I'm using this lens on a D80 and I've tried it several different conditions, and it's given excellent results every time. The VR really works, and focusing speed is fast enough. I am glad Nikon made...

VR works perfectly. Sharpness, Price, Compactness/lightness

Plastic mounting

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

 

I LOVE this lens. The quality of the pics it produces is surprisingly good given the price. It's pretty sharp throughout the entire range. The VR works INCREDIBLY well! I have a couple shots at ISO 1600 (no flash) wide open at 1/15" that are pretty...

Crisp, tack-sharp pictures; quiet; CHEAP; solid build; comes with hood and nice padded lens bag; produces nice bokeh; fast focus

Wish it were faster/wider aperture, but hey, that's why it's $200, not $1200

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

 

I am in my early stages of DLSR cameras. I wanted a lens that was similar to my SLR days. This one was it. The VR function greatly helps when one does not have a tripod on hand. The telephoto capability does allow for good closeups, but has a tendency...

Good depth of focus. Very stable for my shaky hands

Blurs at higher magnifications, but could be my fault

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

 

This is an amazing lens!! The vibration reduction (VR) significantly improves clearness of the photos while the shutter speed is 1/8 sec (probably also great +/- 2 stops). Two sample photos are provided, taken with 1/8 sec. It is light weight,...

Vibration reduction (VR), light weight, price, 52mm front threads

Plastic-made

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

 

This is a godsend light weight zoom lens, due to VR (Vibration Reduction), you can be free of tripod to take casual pictures at home or when you travel. With 18-55 Kit and this, I only need SB400 and sigma 30mm F1.4 to complete my Nikon D40 lens set....

1 - light (lighter than 18-70)2 - slow focus, feels slower than AF-S (50 f/1.8), but more accurate (compared to 50 f/1.8), focused correctly with first try3 - nice kit lens feel

made in china.. but can't complain with its features and price

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

 

This lens is a great choice of add-on for Nikon D40 or D40x SLR camera. Nikon also has a 18-200 mm lens, but the price is too high ($600-$700). With a budget of around $200, this lens is pretty much the only choice. Comparing with the Canon lens at the...

Good price for relatively low price
