Nikon nikkor af-s dx vr 55-200mm f/4-5.6g if-ed

The main attraction of the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX VR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED is that it's very compact and lightweight, while still offering a decent zoom range, equivalent to 82.5-300mm.

We liked

It's sharp at 200mm, even at the maximum available aperture of f/5.6.

We disliked

Older generation 3-stop Vibration Reduction and the lens mount is made of plastic instead of metal.

Final verdict

Optical quality proved best at longer telephoto settings and, overall, it's a good buy at the price.
