Nikon’s new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–200mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR II lens (27–300mm 35mm equivalent) is an updated version of their popular 18–200mm lens that covers a significant 11.1x focal-length range and probably most of a photographer’s shooting needs.
Compact; wide coverage; effective Vibration Reduction
Lens creep; distortion
This 11.1x super-zoom lens for Nikon DX format SLRs costs around £590, sports silent internal focusing and Vibration Reduction II, which promises to allow hand-held shots to be taken at shutters speeds up to four stops slower than would be possible otherwise.
Zooom lenses often are lenses full of compromises and this is especially true for super zooms. The Nikkor 18-200 VR II clearly illustrates this with its mixture of strenghts and flaws. The image center resolution is quite high, especially towards the short end of the focal range.
First of all, I also own the magnificent AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED, so thats my comparison reference for the 18-200mm. The 24-70 is truly a beast, weighing in at a full two pounds, so I dont understand why so many people think the 18-200 is heavy when it weighs nearly half as much.
I purchased this lens when I purchased my D5200, about 2013, I have been using it ever since, it is a great travel lens, one stop fits most all, sharp lens with and versatile zoom ratios, on the dx cameras, the 200 works out to be about 300 so I have found that I seldom need much more long range...
I've had this lens for a few years and I've used it in the American West, England, and France. One thing I've noticed with this lens is that it is relatively soft compared to other telephoto lenses I've used.
Excellent all-purpose lens. Very happy with this purchase, and expect this to be the lens I use 95% of the time.
Broad range, from wide angle to telephoto. Reasonable weight, about 16 oz., given the outstanding.
I planned on using this product to shoot weddings but I have not learned to trust this lens yet. It does not always communicate with my Nikon D80. It often causes a computer reading problem in the camera and I have to take the lens off and put it back on again to get it to communicate with the...

light weight, sharp focus at all lengths, reasonable price, great range.
not as sharp as a prime lens but very close.
I went with the higher end lens for convenience and quality. It works just fine. I am a newb to DSLR and such so take my input with a grain of salt. I have no complaint and works well. Everyone else talks highly about it as well. Get a good Sigma UV lens to protect it too!
This lens is a great all in one lens. I am a newly aspiring photographer, and this lens helps me take some great photos. I have taken to my boys football games and it takes great sport photos with it zoomed all the way to 200mm.
All in one lens, Easy To Use, Improves Picture Quality
A little heavy
This is my all in one lens for my D7000, very happy with it.
Great lens. No need to switch between lenses when you have this. I use it for all occasions and highly recommend it.
