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


3.6x telephoto zoom lens with 55-200 mm* focal length and f/4-5.6 maximum aperture, that achieves a remarkably compact size with the retractable lens mechanism

Compared to the current AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED, length is reduced by approx. 16.5 mm and diameter by approx. 2.5 mm. With a wide focal-length range and superior portability, this lens is ideal for capturing diverse scenes and subjects with a single lens.

* Angle of view is equivalent to that of an 82.5 to 300 mm lens in FX/35mm format.

Vibration Reduction (VR) with an effect of 4.0 stops*

Image blur caused by camera shake is effectively reduced by the built-in Vibration Reduction function that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops* faster.

* Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when the lens is attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.

Superb optical performance

Employing an ED glass element that effectively corrects chromatic aberration, optical performance superior to that of the current model is delivered from a more compact body.
