New ultra-high ratio zoom lens AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II for use expressly with Nikon DX-format digital-SLR cameras.

A number of unique Nikon technologies have been developed for, and applied to, including a high zoom magnification of 11.1x, a Vibration Reductiaon (VR II) image stabilization system that provides camera shake compensation equivalent to increases in shutter speed by four stops, and a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), as well as a zoom lock switch. Designed expressly for use with Nikon digital-SLR cameras, exceptional image performance is assured.

As the compact AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II covers an extremely wide range of focal lengths (18-200mm, equivalent to 27-300mm in 35mm format; a zoom magnification of 11.1x), it offers excellent versatility for various scenes that include portraits and landscapes. The addition of a zoom lock switch allows photographers to secure the lens barrel at its minimum length, eliminating the natural gravitational effect that can draw the barrel downward during transport.

This lens offers superior optical performance in a compact size of just 77 x 96.5 mm, despite a high zoom magnification of 11.1x. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) assures fast and quiet autofocusing.

The Vibration Reduction system (VR II) provides camera shake compensation equivalent to increases in shutter speed by four steps. Two Vibration Reduction modes are available.

NORMAL VR mode: Reduces ordinary camera shake. Panning is also supported.

ACTIVE VR mode: Reduces extreme camera shake, such as that which occurs when shooting from a moving vehicle.

Optics, optimized for use with digital-SLR cameras, utilize two ED glass elements and three aspherical lenses for optimum balance of chromatic aberration, astigmatism and distortion compensation, allowing for capture of images exhibiting extraordinary fidelity, with vivid color, high resolution and crisp contrast.

Although DX NIKKOR lenses can be attached to 35mm-format and IX 240-format film cameras, the smaller image circle they project on the film plane prohibits compatibility with these cameras. When this (or any DX NIKKOR) lens is mounted on a Nikon FX-format digital SLR, with the Image Area option set to Auto DX crop (default), the camera recognizes that a DX NIKKOR lens is in use and the DX crop mode is activated automatically.

Lens creep


from Undisclosed

I found a easy solution that has worked for years. I took a 2'' elastic strip found at a sewing counter and made a band around the lens, just snug enough to allow manual turning, but will not let the lens creep. Easily removed, but I keep it on all of the time. It is black so it is barely noticeable Good luck.

Super versatile lens


from Athens, GA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Though you might need a flash at 3.5 often I find this lens per forms beautifully at parties, concerts and other low light events.

First impression is good


from St Louis  -  Casual user

I bought this lens to replace the kit 18-55mm lens. My hopes for this lens were that it would be relatively compact and light and that it would outperform the kit lens as far as contrast and of course much better zoom. It meets most of my expectations. It is compact for a 200mm but is much larger and heavier than the 18-55mm. They talk about the silent wave auto focus. It is quieter than the kit lens but it clicks when focusing which is almost more annoying. The picture quality seems better than the kit lens and the zoom is great. Overall I would recommend it but I don't know if it takes the place of the 18-55mm in terms of portability.

Do-able. I guess, it gets the job done.


from Undisclosed

Takes very good pictures compare to some higher end models of other brands. Video quality is a BIG NO NO. The video quality is too choppy and not very smooth when compared to other brand. Not recommending this camera because there are two newer model.

Best Carry Everywhere Lens


from Hollywood FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This lens covers everything from a respectable wide angle to almost super telephoto range. It can do almost macrophotography and is a fine portrait lens, particularly if you shoot wide open. It also features Vibration Reduction for hand holding under borderline lighting conditions. It's reasonably small so you can take it anywhere. It's probably the perfect travel photograpny lens.

Excellent Focus


from San Jose, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is my second version of this model. Since my first lens there have been two revisions and have to say while I was in love with the first lens this one is even better. The focusing is tight, clear and with VR you can't take a better picture. This is a great all around lens and is my go to for just about everything.


I am pleased with this perchase


from Naples, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use this lens for everything. The zoom makes it versatile. No need to carry other lenses. The pictures are sharp.


A Camara Store to trust


from Covington, WA.98042  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Every day to take pictures


Wanted this lens for the last few years.


from Warsaw, NY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Replaced the 3 lenses that I was using. Now ready to shoot no matter what the situation. Will probably never be off this camera.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Laurie R  Is this lens new?
MELISSA S  If you are asking if this is a new or refurbished lens, the one I purchased was new. As far as it being a newly released lens, it is not. I have had this lens since 2010 and really love it. I consider it my bread and butter lens. Its wide range is great for shooting out and about and portrait type work. It does ok in low light, but I tend to go for my 50mm prime lens when shooting in low light situations. Hope this is helpful. It really is a great lens for the price. Cheers,
Shopper  I shoot with a Nikon 300S camera, currently shoot with the 18-105vr lens, is this lens a good upgrade? I shoot events and sometimes shoot groups.
ORLANDO J  This would be an excelent upgrade for the lens you are currently using.
Shopper  I shoot events such as reunions, birthday parties etc. Would this be a good lens for group shots?
Dick A  I use this as my all around single lens for travel because of it wide range of focal lengths. It is not as sharp as some of the wide angle lens combination such as the 17-35 2.8 or the 17-35 f4, which I have used for group shots, birthday parties and such. For the money, I don't think you can beat the 18-200 3.5-5.6 ED IF AF-S DX Vr II.
