A compact telephoto zoom lens with VR system for Nikon digital SLRs

Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED, a compact, lightweight 3.6x zoom lens featuring a host of state-of-the-art optical technologies such as the Vibration Reduction (VR), Nikon ED glass element and SWM (Silent Wave Motor). The AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED has been specifically designed to complement the D80, as well as the D40 and upcoming D40x cameras. And it delivers outstanding performance at a remarkably affordable price.

The compact zoom lens offers powerful zoom performance of 55-200mm (providing a picture angle equivalent to an 82.5-300mm lens in 35mm format) and is suitable for every type of photography from candid portraits to sports, nature and wildlife photography.

The Nikon Vibration Reduction (VR) system enables users to take substantially sharper handheld pictures at slower shutter speeds. With this lens, users can take sharp pictures at shutter speeds approximately 3 stops slower* than would otherwise be possible. The VR system minimizes image vibration in the finder, making shutter release timing and image composition easier.

The AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED also incorporates proven Nikon features and technologies such as the SWM, which offers quiet and smooth autofocusing, and one ED glass element that provide higher resolution and high-contrast images

The AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED is the only entry level VR lens at a very affordable price..
