Product Description

A Compact Telephoto Zoom That’s Great for Action, People and Travel

Optimized for Nikon’s compact DX-format DSLRs, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II features a retracting design that’s small and lightweight—ideal for travel and everyday use. Its versatile zoom range goes from 55mm, which is great for portraits and group shots, up to 200mm telephoto for catching close-ups on the sports field, school events and more. 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.

 

Take it Everywhere

Thanks to a new retractable lens barrel design, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is remarkably small and lightweight, making it a well-balanced match to Nikon DX-format DSLRs. Zoomed out, it’s just 83mm long, approximately 20% shorter than previous models. Zoomed in, it provides 200mm of telephoto reach to get you closer to all the shots that matter.

 

Outstanding Views

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is an advanced lens that pushes Nikon’s new high-resolution DSLRs to peak performance. Super Integrated Coating (SIC) delivers superior color quality while reducing ghosting and lens flare. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass nearly eliminates optical distortion, while a rounded seven-blade diaphragm makes out of focus elements look more natural.

 

Sharp Photos, Steady Videos

Forget about blurry photos and shaky videos with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II. Nikon Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization provides 4.0 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images, steadier HD videos and enhanced low-light performance.
