Key Features

Offers broad 18 - 200mm focal range for use in a variety of situations, equivalent to a 27-300 lens in 35mm format.

Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.

Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) offers superb color reproduction while minimizing ghosting and flare.

Delivers a high-level optical performance designed exclusively for use with Nikon DX digital format.

Enables focusing from as close as 50cm (20 in.) from the subject through its entire focal range.

Flower-shaped lens hood (HB-35) provides greatly reduced stray light.

11x zoom coverage offers a perfect compact and lightweight “one lens” solution.

Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and three aspherical lens elements minimize chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion, while ensuring high resolution and contrast.

Incorporates a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) allows for fast, quiet focusing.

Employs a 7-blade rounded diaphragm opening that achieves a natural blur for out-of-focus elements.

M/A mode for rapid switching between auto focus (A) and manual focus (M) operation.

I love my AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR I have been into photography since I was a very young man. This lens came along when I purchased my 3rd Nikon digital camera. I found that taking along a three or four lenses became a problem when I changed lenses on my camera. I tend to hike a lot and changing out lens became a big dust/dirt problem in the environment I tend to hike in during the day. This lens allowed me to reduce the number of camera bodies and lenses I carry in my backpack. This lens allows me to shoot 90 percent of the images I want with high quality results without interchanging lenses. If I were a boy again, I would not mind carrying the additional 25 lbs of photo equipment, today I do. Any photographer using this lens would be very happy with the results at the end of the day. Except for some very special shooting situations, this lens does an excellent job. Now for my plug to Nikon, will you please produce an equal or better lens like this for the FX digital cameras in order that I can use it on my D700 replacement (soon to come out I hope)??? If you can, I thank you from the bottom of my picture taking heart! August 1, 2010
Greatest Lens I have the NIKKOR AF-S 18-200mm 1:35-5.6 G ED zoom lenses mounted on a Nikon D5000 Camera. For me this combination cannot be beat. I can take pictures and Videos in the wilds of Alaska capturing the wild life and the spectacular scenery, to portraits at a family get together. I can use it to photo our home and belongings for our inventory or to make copies of old photos or documents. This combination is such a pleasure to us. I never miss a shot because I was changing lenses or because I didn’t bring the correct lens. August 1, 2010
My all around lens. This lens is the one that is always on my D200. Very versatile range (18-200) and very good image quality. October 20, 2011
perfect for journalist As a writer and not a photographer, this lens saves my butt. I can set it at auto and shoot everything and it comes out great. I can set it for specific modes and it does even better. A friend borowed it for a family portait and then I saw how good it really is. Nikon is my choice for cameras, lens, eyeware and rifle scope. None has ever let me down. September 6, 2011
great versitile lens system. Love the lens. I had a 18-55mm and a 55-200mm and loved them but now only have to have one lens with me. It is light weight and operates as advertized. Most all my photographic situations are covered by this one lens. June 23, 2011

Answer: 
Yes, it will work fine. The lens doesn't say VRII, the lens with the VR in red is the VR and the lens with VR in gold is the VRII and it has II after the letter G.

I have the NIKKOR 18-200mm VR and a Sigma 10-20mm. When I put the lenses in the camera, they fit but the camera doesn't grab all the image, but around are some dark areas which the camera cannot see. What can I do?

I need to replace the zoom rubber ring on my Nikon 18-200mm lens. The Nikon Store has a rubber ring (Part Number: 1K110-738) available but I do not know if the part is for the zoom or focus. The rubber ring for the zoom is wider that the focus ring.

Answer: 
When using a lens that is physically very long, a subject that is very close, or a wide lens hood it is possible that a shadow may be cast upon the subject. Below is an article that gives tips on how to shoot flash photography and not get the shadow along with some more flash photography tips.: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...
