Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens Reviews:
GREAT LENS FOR THE MONEY
I purchased a “factory reconditioned” version of this lens and have been very happy with it. It came in like new condition. Before getting it, a friend who has a lot more to spend on camera equipment loaned me his Nikon 70-300 VR lens. To compare the two, I can’t say that for me the 70-300 is really worth three times the price of the 55-200. (Comparing what I paid for mine to what he got his for, used.) In fact, in some ways I like the smaller lens better. It is a lot lighter. The thing I miss most on the bigger lens was the manual override of the automatic focus. Ken Rockwell has a wonderful website reviewing a lot of Nikon equipment, and he gives this lens high praise.
