Product Overview

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm F4-5.6G VR II is a telephoto zoom lens for Nikon F-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Nikon in 2015, it has 13 elements in 9 groups.
Unfortunately, Nikon has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
As a telephoto zoom lens, the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm F4-5.6G VR II is well suited for landscape and portrait photography, though its relatively dark maximum aperture limits its performance for indoor sports. Built-in image stabilization makes the lens easier to use handheld, and can be quite valuable for landscape works.
