  • Conclusion: The main attraction of the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX VR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED is that it's very compact and lightweight, while still offering a decent zoom range, equivalent to 82.5-300mm.

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

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

  • Excerpt: Wouldn't it be great to get some serious telephoto zoom reach without filling up most of your gadget bag with a big clunky lens? The Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX VR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED fits the bill with a remarkably compact design, and it's less than half the weight of its big brother, the Nikon 70-300mm VR.

  • 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. The zoom ring takes up around 2/3 of the length of the lens, while the rarely used focus ring has a tiny space on the front.

Nikkor AF-S 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED DX VR - Review / Test Report

31 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED DX VR delivered a very sound performance with very few weaknesses. The resolution characteristic is generally very good and neither CAs not distortions are something to worry about. The vignetting is a bit more pronounced at 135mm @ f/5 but otherwise not a real problem. The bokeh (out-of-focus blur) is naturally a bit underdeveloped due to the slow max. aperture but apart from this limitation is seems pretty smooth.

Długoogniskowe zoomy Nikona - część 1, AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200 mm F4-5.6G IF-ED

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. Ten brak niskich ocen nie może nam jednak przysłonić faktu, że rozdzielczość przy najdłuższych ogniskowych jest naprawdę słaba, a i winietowaniem przy 105 mm i otwartej przysłonie obiektyw...
