55-200 VR - Thoughts?

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by grt_napa, May 2, 2007.

  1. I use my D40 for 1-2 hour hikes/bike rides and prefer/need a light-weight telephoto to compliment my 18-70. The new 55-200 VR is getting decent reviews. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    i've had the chance to play with this lens at work, and aside from being a little light and not nearly as confidence inspiring as some of nikons real expensive stuff... its a great lens. at $250 i'd say buy a couple... well maybe one will do...
