It is a truly exceptional staple for any photographer’s camera bag.

Nikon technology for better shots

What’s versatility without quality? The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II is as powerful as it is versatile. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.5 stops of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements maximizes optical performance while minimizing chromatic aberration. Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission and offers superior colour consistency and reduced flare, and its exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and ultra-quiet focusing.

  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass:  An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • AS:  AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
  • IF Lens:  A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
  • Silent Wave Motor: AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology.
  • M/A: Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.
  • Vibration Reduction:  A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

Zooom lenses often are lenses full of compromises and this is especially true for super zooms. The Nikkor 18-200 VR II clearly illustrates this with its mixture of strenghts and flaws. The image center resolution is quite high, especially towards the short end of the focal range.

Layers Magazine

Nikon’s new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–200mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR II lens (27–300mm 35mm equivalent) is an updated version of their popular 18–200mm lens that covers a significant 11.1x focal-length range and probably most of a photographer’s shooting needs.

Photodo

This 11.1x super-zoom lens for Nikon DX format SLRs costs around £590, sports silent internal focusing and Vibration Reduction II, which promises to allow hand-held shots to be taken at shutters speeds up to four stops slower than would be possible otherwise.

I wanted a good general zoom for use with my D7000. I had been considering the Nikon 18-20mm for some time but could not get my hands on one localy as it was never in stock. I looked at a number of other brands but regardless of the price I kept returning to Nikon 18-200.

Bought this lens to replace 18-70mm. I now use this as my standard lens, having got wide angle & a good zoom for most of my everyday needs. Overall a very useful addition.

If you want one lens for 90% of your shots, this is it. Sharp, solidly made, an excellent range without being too extreme & Nikon's fantastic VR. Well worth the money.

I use this with the D300, it was my first SLR and lens. its very flexible , easy to use and has performed nearly 4 years without any problems. It feels light compared to the body construction...but no issues...good value and great as a starter jack of all...

This is a far better lens than the original version. Focus is quick and sharp.
