Compact design with a versatile telephoto range
For those seeking an affordable, versatile all-in-one zoom lens for their DX-format DSLR camera, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55–200mm is a great choice. Its practical 55–200mm zoom range handles group shots, landscapes, portraits and more, while its telephoto capability brings everything closer. Plus, it delivers close-up shots at 200mm with a Maximum Reproduction Ratio (R:R) of 1/3.5x—great for macro-style shots of flowers, insects and more.
Silent Wave MotorAF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) GlassAn optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A-MA-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
