Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II Lens Features

  • A telephoto zoom lens that supports the 55-200mm (angle of view equivalent to that of a lens with focal lengths of 82.5-300mm in 35mm [135] format) range of focal lengths and maximum apertures of f/4-5.6 compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras
  • Adoption of a retractable barrel makes the lens significantly smaller

  • Adoption of an ED lens element maximizes the superior optical performance of the lens for little chromatic aberration
