Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

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.

All-in-one zoom spans wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths and is designed for Nikon F-mount DX-format cameras, where it provides a 27-300mm equivalent range.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by 3.5 stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 reviews

    AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 933.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performs Just Like it Should! This is a great all around lens. It is quick to focus and makes an easy carry. Recently took it to Orlando and on my Nikon 300 it did all I expected. It would be wonderful if the f/stop were 2.8, but that would be a bit of stretch. I did find several situations where the 300 and the lens forced me to shoot at higher ISO's than I would prefer, but for the money and the versatility, it is worth having in your camera bag. I could have carried the big 2.8 zoom, but it would have been uncomfortable. Would I use this for super high def quality photos... probably not, but it does perform. Buy it you will not be unhappy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent all purpose lens I use a D40, an 18-55mm lens, and this 18-200mm lens. The 18-200 is excellent for travelling, hiking, etc., when you don't want to carry a photography shop in your bag and just need an all-purpose lens. It's moderately fast, not too heavy (this is relative...), and the quality is pretty good. The VR helps too -- I sometimes prefer this lens to my 18-55mm non-VR lens even when shooting at 18mm, because of the VR. On the downside there's some pronounced vignetting when zoomed in > 100 mm (even when not using the hood). All things considered, this is a solid purchase, one that I haven't regretted at all inspite of its high price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good jack of all trades got this along with my nikon d5500 along with a 35mm f1.8 afs lens...while the 35mm is better for inhouse and low light...this 18-200 vr2 pretty much is always on my cam..for every outdoor shoot..including indoor party shots where u wanna get candid shots of people from a good distance...this is the one.. though i did read a lot of refies of lens has no such issues and the 18mm lock i use very sparingly. my tip..get a good uv filter for protection since my d500 is hardly 420g..this lens with cam is around 900 gm..and pretty much easy to hold and feels solid to grip...if u want one lens to do all the stuff..this is the one:))

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic traveling lens I replaced my 28mm-200mm Nikon lense with this 18mm -200mm VR lense. On a recent trip overseas I took only this lense leaving my wide angle and real telephoto lenses at home. What a great single walk-around lense...wide angle very good @ 18mm, a big improvement over th previous lense I had. Telephoto good @ 200. The VR really helps the sharpness by compensating for a shaking hand at 200. While not tiny, the size and weight is good for the flexibility and quality of the shots I got with my D7000; both snapshots and video worked very well. (HGX filters help too.) If you plan to travel or don't want to carry around too many lenses this is a great choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Lens for an All in One I purchased this lens after reading the many reviews out there on both the Nikon and other aftermarket lenses. It was purchased primarily for overseas travel when it is simply not practical to travel with alot of gear. So far I have found it to be a very useful lens , great range ,and capable of delivering very good results ....particularly if in the hands of a skilled photographer that understands the limitations of a lens and rarely uses the auto settings on their camera . I use this on a D7000 and have been very satisfied . Fast accurate focus and consistent results. Probably as good as it gets for an all in one lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 's wonderful I'd wanted this lens for years and now that I have it, it's all I dreamt it would be. Right out of the box it's been a joy to use, although I am still learning of its potential and power. Having used my Nikon D3100 with 18-55mm kit lens for ages, I was already spoiled. Yes, that's what I said: Nikon's entry-level DSLR with kit lens is impressive equipment and it spoiled me. I have a D7000 now but to be honest, I like the 18-200mm on the D3100 better. Takes off a few ounces of weight and just feels right. I'll keep a prime on the D7000 for now. To sum up, you can't go wrong with this wonderful lens. Get it while you can.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still not sure about this purchase! I carefully read all the reviews about this lens before deciding to purchase it after upgrading my camera from the nikon D80 to the D5300. I have previously used the nikkor 70-300 and 55-200 lenses but wanted to try this lens as a replacement to those. I have noticed that if you aren't careful after zooming in to lock focus when pulling back the focus can easily be lost and I have experienced a little creep where many others insisted that didn't. The autofocus is not instant. I would say that for a single subject it works well but when shooting multiple subjects together it loses the quality of sharpness I enjoyed with other lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolute Beauty! Wow. This lens is everything that I thought it would be. Whether it's the group picture of hyper teenagers or the close-up of a child's unexpected expression, I am indeed satisfied with depth of the shots I get. I'm FAR from being the pro and I'm well aware that this lens is not the pro's sports lens, but I can even get those football pictures as long as I position myself on the sideline. I don't find it heavy, just solidly made which I appreciate. I just wish someone could have told me a couple of years ago to save my money a bit longer and buy the Nikon 18-200mm VR rather than a cheaper rival.
