The Nikkor AF-S Zoom DX 55-200mm f4-5.6G ED VR II lens is a lightweight and compact telephoto lens for DX crop sensor bodies, weighing in at only 300 grams. The long-reaching focal length with a unique retractable mechanism result in excellent portability, making this the perfect complementary lens to a standard DX zoom lens when travelling or as part of an everyday kit.
Get Closer from Afar
The small but powerful lens has fantastic reach with a 35mm equivalent of approximately 82.5-300mm allowing you to photo distant subjects without the hassle of switching lenses and potentially missing the action. The excellent 4-stop advantage vibration reduction (VR) ensures that your shots remain steady so you don’t have to worry about blurry photos even when shooting handheld. Additionally, images shot in low light will be sharper and HD videos more stable, letting you leave the tripod at home.
Smooth and Quiet Autofocus
The Nikkor AF-S DX 55-200mm f4-5.6 G ED VR II Zoom lens operates smoothly and quietly thanks to the integrated Silent Wave Motor autofocus system. Coupled with a extra-low dispersion ED glass element, the lens keeps chromatic aberrations to a minimum, resulting in stunning image quality in every picture.
A wide 55-200mm (picture angle equivalent to 82.5-300mm lens in the 35mm format) 3.6x zoom range offers high quality images. Also features an ED glass element and Compact SWM (Silent Wave Motor) for quiet autofocusing.
