Decent lens for the money.

  • Summary: Got this as part of a kit deal in 2009 with my D5000 + AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR. It is a good lightweight lens, takes decent telephoto shots, and requires less expensive 52mm filters. I tended to use my 18-55 more, and only used this on a few occassions before I stepped up to an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II in 2012. That move was for the convenience of carrying a single lens and to avoid the peril of switching lenses while taking travel photos.

Cheap Used Product

  • Summary: The unit came as described-used condition with signs of wear so this was already a conceived notion I had in mind when receiving the product. When taking the lens out for a test run on my Nikon D 5100, the auto focusing seemed to have an issue locking on a target when using the longer end between 70-200MM, when I manually focus I can get around this issue but hinders the main idea of getting this sort of lens.

Nice case but not for larger FX format cameras

  • Summary: I was looking for a case for my new D800. This case doesn't seem large enough, especially if you add a battery grip. I'm surprised Nikon doesn't offer a larger version bag for camera & 2 -3 lenses.

  • Summary: It is, as the 3 stars indicate, okay. Looking from hindsight would have purchased a different lens. Product functions fine.

Little problems, but finally ok.

  • Summary: The problem I found was a little loosen of the lenses. So that, the accuracy is not the best. The rest of the features are fine.

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

  • Excerpt: The 55-200mm lens is an extension to my 18-55mm lens, perfect for outdoor photography. It's light, compact and pretty fast. I am amazed at what it produces with merely 32mm in (glass) diameter (within the 52mm outer ring diameter) – a good value for the price.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Inexpensive, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not made in Japan

  • Excerpt: 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.
