The Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4.0-5.6G IF-ED Lens is a versatile and ultra-compact telephoto zoom lens that offers a 3.6x zoom range, ideal for portraiture, sports or wildlife photography. Its equivalent focal length in 35mm terms, when used on a digital camera, is 82-300mm. It is the ideal companion to the DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED standard zoom lens.

The innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) system allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions. It minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3 stops (8 times) faster. The Nikon Super Integrated Coating used in this lens minimizes ghosting and flare to provide even higher contrast and more vivid images, even in challenging light conditions.

This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier, virtually mistake-free operation because the aperture does not need to be set to minimum.

Note: AF-S feature is not supported by certain camera models. Please click here for a list of compatible models.

Note: DX lenses are NOT recommended for use with, 35mm, or "full-frame" digital SLR cameras.

  • Versatile and compact 3.6x Zoom-Nikkor approximates the picture angle characteristics of an 82-300mm lens in the 35mm format.
  • Brings subjects closer to the photographer fills the frame with portraiture, sports, wildlife and more.
  • Nikon's exclusive Vibration Reduction (VR) reduces the effects of camera shake allowing photographers to shoot hand-held at as many as 3 shutter speeds slower* than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images in challenging conditions.
  • New compact rod-type Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation.
  • An ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration, contributing to 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.
  • An excellent companion to the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor.
