Nikon AF-S DX VR 55-200mm f4-5.6 G IF-ED

21 January 2013
  • Conclusion: A good ‘second’ lens for anyone with a Nikon D40, D40x or D80, but the older non-VR 55-200 is smaller, cheaper and optically better

  • Excerpt: The main reason for the Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6 AF-S VR DX is the addition of the VR technology, and the first thing that strikes you about this lens is the light weight. At a meagre 355g, its really some achievement to get all it offers into such a small lens.

21 January 2011
  • Summary: Cóż, takiego obrazu VR-Nikkora 55-200 mm można się było spodziewać. W większości kategorii reprezentuje on średni poziom "na trójkę z dużym plusem", ale ważne że ani razu nie spada poniżej niego. A to - trochę uprzedzę fakty - rzecz wcale nie częsta w naszym teście długich Nikkorów.

低価格な望遠ズームレンズに手ぶれ補正が付いた! ニコン「AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor ED 55-200mm F4-5.6G(IF)」

  • Conclusion: 従来タイプのレンズを使用していた時に気になったのが、その描写力だ。設定する絞りによっては、画像の中心部分に比べて周辺部分が極端にぼやけて写る、という現象が散見されたのが残念だった。 この点はずいぶんと解消され、隅々までシャープに描写してくれているという印象だ。また、手ぶれ補正機構は最新の「VR II」ではないのだが、比較的暗い場所でも三脚を使わずにシャープに撮影できるのはありがたい。...
