The Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX is a versatile and ultra-compact telephoto zoom lens that offers a 3.6x zoom range, ideal for portraiture, sports or wildlife, and is designed exclusively for Nikon DX format SLRs. It is the ideal companion to the DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens.
The Nikon Super Integrated Coating used in this lens minimizes ghosting and flare to provide even higher contrast and more vivid mages, even in challenging light conditions.
This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier, virtually mistake-free operation, because the aperture does not need to be set to minimum.
Note: Equivalent focal length in 35mm terms when used on a digital camera is 82.5-300mm.
Note! DX lenses are NOT recommended for use with 35mm, “full-frame” digital, or APS SLR cameras.
