Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Lens from Nikon is a one-lens solution for DX-format DSLRs. Its wide angle to telephoto focal range with the 35mm focal length equivalence of 27-300mm gives photographers a versatile tool to get the shot without having to switch lenses. It is engineered with superior quality ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements yielding sharpness and color correction without distortion, even at wide apertures. Additionally, this zoom is constructed with three aspherical lens elements and a circular 7-blade diaphragm which renders captured images with natural-looking out-of-focus elements. NIkon's Super Integrated Lens Coating enhances light transmission through the lens and reduces flare and ghosting.

VR (Vibration Reduction) II image stabilization compensates against the blur caused by camera shake and allows shooting up to 3.5 shutter speed stops slower than with non-VR II lenses. This enables handheld shooting at telephoto lengths and in low light with less blur. The internal focusing (IF) lens incorporates Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) to provide smooth, silent, fast and accurate auto focusing. Autofocus (A) or manual (M) modes can easily be selected with a focus mode switch, and manual override function allows the shooter to manually focus even in AF mode.

With 11x zoom versatility this one-lens solution covers a broad range of photographic opportunities. Picture angle is the equivalent of a 27-300mm lens in the 35mm format.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 3.5 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images.
Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at wide aperture settings.
Three aspherical lens elements eliminate coma and other aberrations, even at wide apertures.
Nikon's Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
Built with Nikon's exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM), the lens enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus.
With a rounded 7-blade diaphragm a more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements are rendered.
A zoom lock switch secures lens barrel at its minimum length.
This 18-200mm lens provides a minimum focus distance of 19.7".
The M/A (Manual/Autofocus) mode switch enables quick response to changing situations between manual and autofocus operation.
The included HB-35 petal-type lens hood shades the lens from unwanted, image-degrading light and provides a degree of protection against impact and the elements.

    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 929.
    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.
