Reviews

Nikon 55-200mm VR AF-S f/4-5.6G ED review by KenRockWell.com

The Nikon 55-200mm VR is significantly better for hand-held shooting than non-VR tele lenses, including the non-VR 55-200mm, because the VR helps ensure sharp shots that otherwise are often blurred. VR is less important with normal lenses, and very important with telephoto lenses.

The 55-200mm VR zooms easily and precisely. The zoom range is well spaced, and VR works great. It focuses reasonably quickly, but not as fast as more expensive lenses. I have no problem tracking my 2-year-old in action with my D40. The 55-200mm VR doesn’t offer instant manual focus override: you have to move a switch, but for the price, I’m not complaining.

Forget the old non-VR 55-200mm. This 55-200mm VR lens costs little more, and VR makes a huge difference with teles.
