Long reach in a sleek form factor, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II from Nikon is an 82.5-300mm-equivalent telephoto zoom for DX-format cameras. Well-suited to landscapes, sports, and portraiture, this lens's optical design incorporates one extra-low dispersion element for clear, accurate rendering and reduced color fringing. A Super Integrated Coating helps to minimize flare, ghosting, and reflections in order to gain improved contrast and color rendering when working in harsh lighting conditions. Suitable for both photo and stills applications, the Silent Wave Motor delivers fast and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control. Additionally, complementing the lens's reach, is a four stop-effective Vibration Reduction system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.
