Nikon AF-S DX 55-200mm F4-5.6G ED VRII Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I recently purchased this lens as a bday gift to myself :-) and was even thinking about returning it for something more along the lines of a 18-300mm lens since I already have a 18-55mm & a 50mm lens. However, when I went out to use it for the first time I was amazed at the clarity of my photos from this lens. I think that this will make a good walk around lens - especially if you're just getting started in photography, like myself - unless you're looking for a walk around lens that will give you more in the way of wide angle to telephoto shots. I'm looking forward to seriously road testing this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp lens in a small package Took this lens with me to the ball park today, fully extended and handheld took sharp crisp pictures with great contrast and color. Works really well with mr D7100. Recommend? Absolutely! Two things that are impressive, lightweight and sharp on the long end. I live in San Francisco mainly shoot with a wide angle or my 35mm, never really have use for a telephoto normally. Today found me in a luxury box far from the field at the Giants game so I thought I'd try out my telephoto all I can say is wow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for i got this lens for my nikon d5100 at the start of the year and i am very happy with it!!! i am rating it 4 star becuase the AF is not always good. but for what you pay it is a great lens to start out!! but if your not starting out (buying a d7100 UP or updateing) i would get a better one. like the 70-300 af-s or a nikon. but you will pay more then 2 times the price for that so yeah! but it is always better to have a good lens, if you have a dslr and it is working (useable) then update your lens first then the camera. but this is a great lens for the money so go to harvery and try it out :) and see if its what you want. hope this helped :) Trey..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from THE BEST FOR BEGINNERS I love it but I wish it could be faster on the D3200. I recommend it to junior photographers such as me. If you are a new beginner you have to buy this lens and the reasons are its cheap, its got VR, Its got a zoom rande of 55-200 which is pretty good for sports and wildlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra-light Weight - Great Photos This is a terrific lens for travel. It is very light weight, being made of plastic, with a plastic mount. It has advanced optics and takes excellent photos in the 55mm to 135mm range and very good photos in the 135mm to 200mm range. We old folks convert DX lenses in our minds to their 35mm film versions: this lens has the same reach as a 35mm film camera's 85mm to 300mm zoom lens. At the short end, and using f/4 to blur backgrounds, this is a fine portrait lens. Fully zoomed out, it is useful for sports and for travel photos. The VR II vibration reduction makes it possible to get sharp photos at low shutter speeds. At the full 200mm extension, I get sharp photos at just 1/50th of a second shutter speeds. At the wide end the best results are at f/5.6 and f/8. Fully extended, the best results are at f/8 and f/11. When taking sports photos, it is important to remember that the VR II vibration reduction "freezes" the minor movements of your hands. It does not "freeze" the movement of the runner stealing second base. To freeze sports action requires high shutter speeds of 1/500th of a second or 1/1000 of a second. Folks who say their photos are not sharp need to take a moment to lock in focus and use a fast shutter speed to freeze the movement of their subject. It is very light because of its plastic build and plastic mount. It is NOT a heavy duty lens designed for someone taking photos in all sorts of weather, day after day as many pros do. Yet, I suspect some professional photographers DO carry this lens instead of a pro zoom that weighs three times more and costs ten times as much. It is so light you can forget it is in your bag. And, the photo quality is superb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does everything I need it to! Great compact lens. I did some research before buying and, after a month of use, am very happy with the choice. Results have been great, love that it's collapsible/compact and not too heavy. Only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because of the plastic lens mount (but that's just a quibble!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Image Quality Purchased this lens about 2 weeks ago. It produces sharp good quality pictures over the zoom range and is an asset to my lens collection . The build quality and presentation with an included pouch enhances my satisfaction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for distant subjects Overall very happy with quality of the lens. Good zoom and clarity, only lens does make an electrical shorting sound when auto focus so if using movie mode any sounds trying to capture are covered by this sound .
