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

AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED A compact, lightweight and affordable 3.6x high-power telephoto zoom DX ideal for use with Nikon digital SLRs

This ultracompact, lightweight telephoto zoom lens has a 3.6x 55-200mm focal range and offers a remarkable cost-to-performance ratio. Its optics are optimized for use with Nikon digital SLRs, and it is ideally suited to the new Nikon D50.

The compact zoom lens offers powerful zoom performance of 55-200mm (providing a picture angle equivalent to an 82.5-300mm lens in 35mm format) and is suitable for everything from candid portraits to sports, nature and wildlife photography. The newly developed compact SWM (Silent Wave Motor) has given rise to an ultracompact, lightweight design with excellent handling characteristics.

For optics, two ED glass elements achieve high resolution and contrast while minimizing chromatic aberration and other forms of distortion. The new compact SWM built into the lens offers the smooth and quiet autofocus performance that users have come to expect from our existing SWM.

By using this lens and the new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens, photographers have a focal length range from wide-angle 18mm to telephoto 200mm (providing a picture angle equivalent to a 27-300mm lens in 35mm format), covering an extremely wide variety of subjects and shooting situations. The range of these ultracompact, lightweight lenses, combined with its high-quality performance, will expand the photographic horizons of Nikon Digital SLR owners. The AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens will be simultaneously released with the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED lens.

Think I have a defective lens, will try warranty

Lens functions well up to 105, then has a mind of it's own. My friends focuses up to 135. Neither will snap at 200. Mine catches while hand turning from 55 to 105. Another friend had a similiar problem and moved up to a higher value lense and now has a great lense. I purchased my lense for a three week motor driving vacation and very unhappy at Grand Canyon and similiar views.

Nice blurred backround with sharp focus.

By

The lens is relatively cheap, takes amazingly sharp photos and blurs the background well. The lens is great for nature as well as portrait photography. I mainly use it for portrait photography.

Worth buying for the price

By

I've had the lens for about a month now and am very pleased with it. Indoor shots are not ideal but if its scenery and/or sports its been working great. Overall for the price i think it's a good buy.

Loved it

By

My 1st Nikon lens I have got for my D5100. Loved it. Just don't pick up the camera by the lens as it has a plastic mount.

great for the money- great optics too

By

Defintely a great lens for the money. Read some reviews on it and was impressed with how highly the optics scored. It's 2 biggest downfalls are the slow speed (f4.0 is the fastest at 55mm) and it's plastic mount. I've read that you should never hold the camera by the lens, because of the plastic mount. It seems pretty solid and I'm sure I'll have many years of use if I remember that simple rule. The autofocus is pretty quick, not lightning speed but definitely very good. All in all, I'm very happy with the lens.

Can't beat the price!

By

I just received the AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm 4-5.6 refurbished lens and used it for the first time this past weekend. A good companion to the 18-55mm 1.8-5.6. I primarily do portraits, but also enjoy documentary shots. The lens gives a feeling of being able to reach out and touch someone, even if at a distance. Light weight, and easy to use. I was also going to purchase a hood and lens bag, but to my surprise, the lens came with both. With a name like Nikon, I felt comfortable purchasing a refurbished lens. How could I go wrong. At present time I can't afford to fork out too much and so "Thanks Nikon". You made it possible.

Roland P  Thanks so much. You have made up my mind.

DOUGLAS C  The lens may work with the D3100. The main issue may be the auto focus feature, which may not be compatible with some older model cameras.
Shopper  Will this fit a Nikon D3000?
