Brand: Nikon
Located in: Lenses For Nikon
The new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED brings far-away subjects to the photographer without the burden of carrying a large telephoto lens. Zooming in on those elusive action shots at soccer or baseball games will fill the frame with images that would be otherwise impossible to capture. Its impressive zoom range of 55-200mm allows users the versatility to capture everything from razor-sharp candid portraits to sports, nature and even wildlife pictures. Despite its long zoom range, the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55- 200mm f/4-5.6G ED is remarkably compact and lightweight, and proves to be a formidable companion to the instant responsiveness and the impressive speed of the new D50 digital SLR camera.

To ensure outstanding optical performance, thid lens also features Nikon's exclusive Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass to minimize chromatic aberrations, and Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) for fast, quiet auto- focusing. All of Nikon's DX Nikkor lenses are optimized for the DX format sensors found in all Nikon digital SLR cameras, making the lens smaller, lighter and with exceptional center-to-edge-to-corner image quality and performance.

  • Versatile and ultra-compact with a powerful focal length range of 55-200mm designed exclusively for Nikon DX format SLRs, this is an ideal 3.6X zoom lens for portraiture, sports or wildlife.
  • An excellent companion to the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED.
  • New compact rod-type Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation.
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating minimizes ghosting and flare to provide even higher contrast and more vivid images, even in challenging light conditions.
  • Two ED glass elements achieve minimized chromatic aberration and superior optical performance.
  • Focus Mode switch enables quick-switching between A (Autofocus) and M (Manual Focus).
  • 9-blade rounded diaphragm for more natural out-of-focus highlights.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

The focus on this is easy to use I can see in the dark meaning it was jet black in my room and the pic came out like we were outside. I purchased the nikon D3100 as a gift for my husband who by the way complained how he didn't want the camera and it's been about three weeks and he takes it everywhere! Even to the bathroom he takes pics of everything he loves it I believe more than me..... So if he's pleased I'm pleased!

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

My first use of this lens was yesterday at an air show. Took great pics, but the autofocus occasionally would not focus on a plane, or would focus on something in the foreground instead of the plane. This is understandable with an autofocus.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

I bought my D40 and Ritz was offering this for an xtra [$], so it was a no-brainer. It truly does take consistent, clear shots and always can count on it to get close up. Is great for animals, portraits, landscape. I say don't even bother paying the extra money for the VR, however, maybe look into the 70-300 or even the 80-400, if you can afford it.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

The 55-200 Non-VR lens certainly exceeds my expectations. I was half-minded to get the Nikon D60 Kit including this Non-VR lens but this lens has not disappointed me with my landscape shots and other general casual shots.May be its a little early for me to write a comment, but I don't have much to regret getting this lens.[...]

The photo quality was impressive to both family and friends. I also used it taking daylight photos of grandkids playing football, same results using handheld- excellent. I have recommended this camera and lens to my friends and two have recently purchased the same package.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

A nice lens to bring the kids up close during their activities without disturbing them by 'taking a picture'

The Nikon AF-S lens system is pretty fast to focus; you need to figure out your meter settings and focus settings in order to fully utilize this lens. Not hard to do but like anything else, time spent learning your camera and your lenses will really pay off in terms of the kind of photos you will take

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

I don't have anything against other brands, I am just comfortable with Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses. I get consistently crisp and colorful output every time. This is a great lens at an unbeatable price. The only thing that I would like to see is a better lens hood mount, otherwise, this is a great lens for sitting on the side lines on a sunny day.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

A great lens, offers much more flexibility than the standard 18-55 that comes with most Nikon units. Although somewhat slower and harder to focus, the unit is still fast enough to catch great action shots from a greater distance. We've had so much fun with this lens that we are considering the next size zoom lens from Nikkor.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

I needed this lens because of its ability to change AF/MF for my Nikon D40X. The range 55-200 is decent. I found that it was adequate for most of my shots. It worked well with moving things (i.e. a bird flying along the surf). It focused quickly but I could quickly change to manual focus for an intricate scene.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

This was a graduation gift for my daughter. She has taken several advanced photo classes and knows what she is doing with the camera. It started acting funny within the first week and by the end of the first month refused to focus at all! Luckily, I had purchased the service plan so it will be fixed/replaced. She was able to use the other lens that came with the pkg. however, it did not have the distance focusing that she really enjoys to get those close-up shots across a soccer/lacrosse field.

I have had a Nikon D50 for years with no issues at all. My caution would be to definitely get the service plan and use your camera a lot as soon as you buy it since the problem showed up almost immediately which seems to be the way things work with electronics. If it is going to break, it will break sooner rather than later (or the day AFTER the warranty expires!)

Hope this helps!

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

Thought I had a great camera, FUJI s7000 with zoom lens and wide-angle lens UNTIL I purchased my NIKON. Can't begin to describe the difference I saw in my photos. I have recently began setting up a home studio and comparing the photos between my FUJI and the NIKON, I couldn't believe the difference. I also make sports photos, the action shots can't compare. You can actually see the softballs at point of impact! The teams are impressed. I feel with a few more classes I can change my classification from enthusiast to semi-pro with the equipment I now own. NIKON's products are wonderful. Also purchased to point and shoot NIKON cameras for my husband and daughter. They love their products also.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

This lens was good, but it was ultimately exchanged for the VR (Vibration Reduction) version which allow sharper pictures hand-held at the long end. Unless you are always using a tripod you should probably upgrade.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

Loved the lens at first. I have had it for 14 months. I had to return to Nikon because af quit. Three months later I am sending it back for the same problem. I had the same problem with my 18-55mm kit lens on the D40. I would up grade to at least the VR and if you can afford it the 18-200mm VR. I should point out that in the last 14 months I have close to 5000 photos with this lens.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

I purchased this lens for my D50. And while I've gotten great photos out of it, I would recommend upgrading to the newer model that has VR (vibration reduction). I have shaky hands...and it shows easily at the upper zoom range. I have inconsistant results and have a tough time bracing myself enough to get clear shots without a tripod. But a good lens if you're a pretty still photographer!

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

I didn't want to spend more than $200 for a zoom lens that would compliment the 18-55mm Nikon Lens I bought with my D70S. I'm very pleased with the sharpness and small size. My only concern is the plastic mount. The dealer told me they have had no complaints, and I don't intend to change lenses frequently.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

I bought this lens to try and capture some pictures during sporting events. Unfortunately this lens just didn't cut it for what I was looking for. I ended up getting alot of blurry shots.. it was actually quite disappointing. I'm sure this lens would function adequately for stills, but it's not great for motion. I ended up upgrading to the Nikon 2161... Twice as expensive, but I had much better luck with it.

RitzCamera.com Response: Try adjusting to a higher ISO rating for indoor action shots. May lose some resolution, but should improve sharpness by using faster shutter speed.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 55-200 mm F/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Lens:

I purchased this lens to extend my reach beyond my 18-55mm DX. It is perfect. I can't believe we can buy these for under $200 when they perform just as well as their double and triple priced bretheren. Quick, sharp focus with stunning results. The 18-55mm DX coupled with this 55-200mm DX is the perfect combination for day to day shooting and beyond.
