Nikon 55-200mm Lens Review

Good, basic utility lens

nikon nikkor 55-200

I bought a Nikon D70s body only and put together a range of coverage from 10mm through 500mm including the 55-200mm Autofocus Nikkor Zoom. It is, as most of the DX lenses, a plastic based barrel and is light enough to travel and easy to hand hold in most lighting situations. Although I have not had the lens that long, it seems to be fast focusing and sharp optically. If it holds up as well as it appears from other reviews I have read, the price makes it a good general usage lens. The plastic construction should not be held as a negative as it seems to be sturdy nonetheless. The manual/autofocus switch is easy to use and the lens shade bayonets in and also stores reversed by bayoneting as well. The mount is plastic but, unless you abuse your equipment, seems to seat well and does not appear to be a negative factor.
