  • Summary: Really a budget or starter lens, reasonably priced, but lacking the fast maximum aperture and expensive glass of more professional lenses
  • Pros: Vibration Reduction, handling
  • Cons: Price, optically not as good as non-VR version

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
