Overview: The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR
lens is a compact telephoto zoom lens. It is optimized for DX-format cameras,
and can be used with FX-format cameras in DX Crop Mode. It is ideal for travel
and everyday use.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.
Vibration Reduction II (VR II): The built-in Vibration
Reduction II (VR II) technology improves image stability, reducing blur by
compensating for camera shake. It can be effectively used in low-light
situations, telephoto and macro shooting, and D-movie recording. When Vibration
Reduction is engaged, you can shoot at shutter speeds up to 4-stops slower than
those without VR. The Vibration Reduction feature is accomplished through the
use of voice coil motors (VCMs), and can be turned on or off via a
switch on the lens barrel.
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of
the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want
to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on
the lens needs to be set to "A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a
manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while
pressing the shutter release halfway.
