Nikon 18-200milimet VR II (DX only, 72milimet filters, 19.9oz/565g, $647). bigger. I got mine at Adorama. I"d also get it at Amazon, at B&H or at Crutchfield.

This ad-free website"s biggest source of tư vấn is when you use those or any of these link to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Nikon does not seal its boxes in any way, so never buy at retail or any other source not on my personally approved danh mục since you"ll have no way of knowing if you"re missing accessories, getting a defective sầu, damaged, returned, non-USA, store test or used lens. Get yours only from the approved sources I use myself for the best prices, service, return policies and selection. Thanks for helping me help you! Ken.

This Nikon 18-200mm VR II is an extraordinary do-everything lens for DX cameras.

It"s the same as the old 18-200milimet VR, with the addition of a zoom loông chồng at 18mm. Otherwise, it is identical, and you can read everything in even greater depth at my original Nikon 18-200milimet VR Reviews.

There isn"t anything this lens doesn"t vì well. If you think you want it, get it., but I"d get the newer 18-300mm which costs about the same và goes lớn 300milimet.

It has the same optics & VR system as the original 18-200mm VR.

I compare the coatings, và they are the same.

When I compared the performance of my original made-in-nhật bản version to this brand-new version, they are the same. There are slight variations throughout the zoom range, but no more than the usual sample-to-sample variations seen between two samples of any zoom lens.

Even Nikon"s MTF figures are identical to lớn the original 18-200milimet VR. (see MTF for new lens và MTF for original, each at bottom of page.)

MTF, 18milimet at f/3.5.

MTF, 200mm at f/5.6.

The original 18-200mm also has the VR-II system, identical to the newer lens. Nikon claims 4 stops of improvement for both lenses.

Versus 18-300milimet and 28-300mm Lenses

Nikon 18-200 VR DX, 28-300 VR and 18-300 VR DX. bigger.

See Nikon 18-200 vs. 28-300 vs. 18-300 for details.

Versus the Original 18-200 VR

This "II" version is the same as the original 18-200milimet VR, the only visible differences are the gold, versus red "VR," and that this new II version has a zoom lochồng at 28mm. Optics và performance are identical.

Just to lớn keep everyone confused, the original 18-200mm VR used Nikon"s second-generation VR system, called VR-II. Therefore you"ll see the that the original 18-200milimet VR with the VR-II system often sold as the 18-200milimet VR-II, which sounds identical to lớn this new version.

Gold VR và loông xã slide switch = new version, red VR & no lochồng button = original version.

The new version says "AF-S NIKKOR 18-200milimet 1:3.5-5.6GII ED" on it in gold, instead of "AF-S NIKKOR 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 G ED."

I"ll run that by you again: the real new II version says "II" in gold just below "DX" by the focus window, while the original version is identical, minus the "II."

For all I know, since the original version uses the VR-II system, the bottom of some of the original versions may also say VR II in silver. If it doesn"t have a zoom loông xã, it"s not the newer version.

So? Except for the zoom lochồng, both lenses have sầu identical optics, coatings & VR system.

I haven"t had a problem with zoom creep in my original 18-200milimet, but others have sầu. Heông xã, when I rethành viên lớn turn my original 18-200mm VR to 18mm it stays put, too, without needing a loông chồng.

This 18-200milimet is a superb do-everything lens for any DX Nikon.

If you already have sầu the original 18-200mm VR, don"t bother with this new II version. Get the 18-300milimet instead if you want a change of pace.

I"d also suggest the 18-300milimet over this lens, simply because it"s a newer kiến thiết & covers a longer range, for about the same price in about the same form size.

Other than the 18-300milimet option, this is a superior lens.
