Spanning wide to tele, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II from Nikon is an ideal all-around lens characterized by an advanced optical design, compact profile, and image stabilization. Three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements are used to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations, in order to produce high sharpness and clarity, and a Super Integrated Coating works to minimize flare for high contrast and color accuracy. Supporting the optics is VR II image stabilization, which compensates for up to 3.5 stops of camera shake to help realize sharp imagery when shooting handheld. A Silent Wave Motor is also used to provide fast and precise autofocus performance, along with full-time manual focus override.

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3G ED V... Reviews
Yes, I have 3 other lenses to use but never seem to bother with them since I can achieve the same and even more with this lens. Great for photographing scenery as well as family gatherings. Love it!
The perfect lens
I have several lenses and use this one the most.
A very good lens
I wanted a second lens, for my D500 Nikon, and the one I chose, lives up to all my expectations.
the 18 - 200 is my go-to lens for shooting models both indoor and out. It saves me from carrying multiple general lenses, saving room for a few specialty ones in my bag.
Most Versatile Lens
This is a very useful, versatile piece of kit with a wide to long(ish) lens, handy to use and carry around. It is my go to lens for travel or just walking about, one I can count on when using a DX camera.
Just purchased 1 month ago
My applications todate has been limited but I'm very please with the current results
What I Expected
I replaced the same lens with this one. It's my workhorse lens and the old one was beginning to have issues. Like all zooms it's soft on maximum extension but it's versatility makes up for its shortcomings.
Great lens for travel and all around shooting.
