Nikon AF-S DX 55-200mm, f/4.-5.6G ED VR II

Description

With its flexible focal length range of up to 200mm, this zoom lens is ideal for travel and sports photography as well as wildlife photography. The optimized housing allows telephoto zoom shots without heavy equipment, and the new lens retraction mechanism makes the lens even more manageable. The optical construction provides dynamic and high-contrast images, and the autofocus is fast, precise and extremely quiet. Nikon's Image Stabilizer (VR) system, which is extremely important for a telephoto lens, ensures camera shake-free images even when shooting at the longest focal length of the telephoto lens.

Handy telephoto zoom lens
The NIKKOR 55-200mm offers excellent opportunities to discover the creative potential of telephoto photography. Immerse yourself in the midst of sports events, take pictures of animals from a great distance, take pictures of objects in front of impressive cityscapes or zoom in on the action at close range during filming. Due to its compact design, this lens is extremely comfortable to use and the high quality optical design ensures razor-sharp images.
More focal length with less weight is hardly possible.

Image Stabilizer (VR)
Nikon's Image Stabilizer System provides smooth, hands-free shooting, allowing you to take pictures with up to four light value levels longer exposure times without the image quality being affected by camera shake.
This Nikon VR technology is extremely useful when shooting under low light conditions or zooming in on distant subjects.

Razor-sharp
The AF-S NIKKOR 55-200mm lens provides excellent results and is ideal for DX cameras. The optical setup includes 13 lenses in nine groups, including a low dispersion glass lens that minimizes color aberrations on high-contrast images.
Nikon's silent wave motor (SWM) technology provides quiet, fast and precise autofocus shooting, which is particularly useful for filming and shooting animals.

Small, compact system
The NIKKOR 55-200mm weighs only 300g and is only 83mm long when retracted - extremely compact for a telephoto zoom lens. The new NIKKOR is ideal for those looking for a lightweight telephoto lens. It is also an ideal addition to the NIKKOR 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G VR II.
A compact SLR camera in combination with these two lenses results in a powerful double zoom, which is hardly noticeable in terms of weight.

Camera lens properties

Camera lens properties

A camera lens (also known as photographic lens, objective lens or photographic objective) is an optical lens or assembly of lenses used in conjunction with a camera body and mechanism to make images of objects either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing an image chemically or electronically.
While in principle a simple convex lens will suffice, in practice a compound lens made up of a number of optical lens elements is required to correct (as much as possible) the many optical aberrations that arise. Some aberrations will be present in any lens system. It is the job of the lens designer to balance these out and produce a design that is suitable for photographic use and possibly mass production.
A lens may be permanently fixed to a camera, or it may be interchangeable with lenses of different focal lengths, apertures, and other properties.

With photo lenses, a further distinction is made according to the angle of view which determines the focal length for a given image format.

Telephoto lens
i

Telephoto lens

In photography and cinematography, a telephoto lens is a specific type of a long-focus lens in which the physical length of the lens is shorter than the focal length. This is achieved by incorporating a special lens group known as a telephoto group that extends the light path to create a long-focus lens in a much shorter overall design. The angle of view and other effects of long-focus lenses are the same for telephoto lenses of the same specified focal length. Long-focal-length lenses are often informally referred to as telephoto lenses although this is technically incorrect: a telephoto lens specifically incorporates the telephoto group.

Lens mount
i

Lens mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge. Lens mounts are also used to connect optical components in instrumentation that may not involve a camera, such as the modular components used in optical laboratory prototyping which join via C-mount or T-mount elements.

Focal length

The focal length of an optical system is a measure of how strongly it converges (focuses) or diverges (diffuses) light. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length.

Focal Length APS-C / DX (35mm film equivalent)

In photography, the 35 mm equivalent focal length is a measure that indicates the angle of view of a particular combination of a camera lens and film or sensor size. The term is useful because most photographers experienced with interchangeable lenses are most familiar with the 35 mm film format.

Image stabilization
i

Image stabilization

Image stabilization (IS) is a family of techniques used to reduce blurring associated with the motion of a camera during exposure. Specifically, it compensates for pan and tilt (angular movement, equivalent to yaw and pitch) of a camera or other imaging device. It is used in image-stabilized binoculars, still and video cameras, and astronomical telescopes. With still cameras, camera shake is particularly problematic at slow shutter speeds or with long focal length (telephoto) lenses. With video cameras, camera shake causes visible frame-to-frame jitter in the recorded video. In astronomy, the problem of lens-shake is added to by variations in the atmosphere over time, which cause the apparent positions of objects to change.

Focusing

i

Focusing

In geometrical optics, a focus, also called an image point, is the point where light rays originating from a point on the object converge. Although the focus is conceptually a point, physically the focus has a spatial extent, called the blur circle. This non-ideal focusing may be caused by aberrations of the imaging optics. In the absence of significant aberrations, the smallest possible blur circle is the Airy disc, which is caused by diffraction from the optical system's aperture. Aberrations tend to get worse as the aperture diameter increases, while the Airy circle is smallest for large apertures.

Autofocus

Autofocus (or AF) is a feature of some optical systems that allows them to obtain (and in some systems to also continuously maintain) correct focus on a subject, instead of requiring the operator to adjust focus manually.

Minimum aperture f/
i

Minimum aperture f/

In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels. More specifically, the aperture of an optical system is the opening that determines the cone angle of a bundle of rays that come to a focus in the image plane. The aperture determines how collimated the admitted rays are, which is of great importance for the appearance at the image plane. If an aperture is narrow, then highly collimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus at the image plane. If an aperture is wide, then uncollimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus only for rays with a certain focal length. This means that a wide aperture results in an image that is sharp around what the lens is focusing on and blurred otherwise. The aperture also determines how many of the incoming rays are actually admitted and thus how much light reaches the image plane (the narrower the aperture, the darker the image for a given exposure time).

Empfohlen für Canon 7100
Color Foto Logo

Edition 10/2015- Auf die D7100 umgerechnet handelt es sich beim Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200 mm 1:4-5,6G ED VR II um ein 80-300er. Dabei handelt es sich um ein vergleichsweise günstiges Objektiv für 300 Euro, dennoch hat es einen Stabilisator direkt an Bord. Optisch liefert es dabei überzeugende Werte, an den Rändern gibt es kaum Schwächen zu bemängeln und in allen Zoomeinstellungen gibt es bei offener Blende ordentliche Leistungen. Bei offener Blende fehlt es lediglich in den Bildecken spürbar an Zeichnung, gerade in der mittleren Brennweite lässt sich dies auch durch Abblenden nicht beheben. Die nicht sonderlich hohe Lichtstärke kann man gut verschmerzen und damit eine Empfehlung aussprechen.more
