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.
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.…more
