Nikon’s Nikkor 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 Lens Review

September 5, 2008

Here is a great little youtube video review of Nikon’s Nikkor 18-200mm f3.5 – 5.6 VR Lens for DSLR cameras. The video reviewer is smooth, detailed and accurate (with the exception that he intros the wrong name – corrected in subtitles) in his review, and there is alot of good information for both complete newbies and experts alike.

He starts off going over the VR vibration reduction technology and why it is significant and gives us an idea of how it looks and feels; large, massive zoom, sturdy and weather proof. He moves onto explaining the other features and breaks down what makes it so versatile and powerful in strong detail in a very clear manner.

The Nikon 18-200 MM is easily one of the most popular and in demand lenses ever in the Nikon Nikkor lens lineup (and you might have a hard time finding one in stock seeing as how they are so popular and get bought up fast hehe) It covers almost all the focal lengths one could ever expect to encounter in a day-to-day fashion in a single lens and does them all quite well for your average day to day type of photography.

If you have a Nikon DSLR and are looking for an all-in-one type of walkaround lens, look no farther you have found it, as the Nikon 18-200mm is versatile enough that it could replace a whole set of lenses before it… now if only it were easier to find a store where they weren’t all sold out of this master-lens!


Nikon Nikkor 18-200MM Lens Review (Video)

August 21, 2008

Here’s a great little video review of the Nikkon 18-200MM VR zoom lens from highly respected editor Gordan Laing. It’s not comprehensive and techy, but is brief and to the points that need to be made, as he states in the movie found on youtube, the Nikkor 18 200 mm lens is one of the most popular options for Nikon body owners, offering a great mix of function, affordibility and range for the novice to professional photography fan.

A great all around and quite versatile lens due to it covering almost all the lengths one might encounter in a day to day scenario as well as some more professional shooting, its price point, quality & versatility is what makes this such a highly regarded and popular Nikkor Lens. Because of its reputation and the large demographic it can please, one of the more popular negative notes attached to Nikkon 18-200 MM VR lens is that its hard to find, not really so much of a negative as a testament to it being widely accepted as one of the best lenses from Nikon Nikkor.

Anyhow, a thanks to youtube and Gordan Laing from Camera Labs, a brief but accurate depiction for those interested in the AF 18-200 VR
