The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is a compact 3.6x telephoto zoom lens designed to complement the 18-55mm kit zoom that comes bundled with many cropped-sensor Nikon digital SLR cameras.
This lens offering a 35mm equivalent focal range of 82.5-300mm, the retractable Nikon 55-200mm VR lens features a built-in auto-focus motor. At the 55mm end of the zoom range, the angle of view is 28° 50', which is a little bit tighter than that of an 80mm lens on a 35mm body.
The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II lens has a very narrow focus ring located in front of the much wider zoom ring. There are hard stops at both ends of the range, making it easy to set focus at infinity. Polariser users should take note that the 52mm filter thread rotates on focus.
Chromatic aberrations, typically seen as purple or blue fringes along contrasty edges, can be detected in shots taken at or near the longer end of the zoom range, but they are not too prominent. At shorter focal lengths, CAs are practically nonexistent.
