Exceptional performance

Nikon technology for better shots

What’s versatility without quality? The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II is as powerful as it is versatile. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.5 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements maximizes optical performance while minimizing chromatic aberration. Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare, and its exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and ultra-quiet focusing.

Lens creep I found a easy solution that has worked for years. I took a 2'' elastic strip found at a sewing counter and made a band around the lens, just snug enough to allow manual turning, but will not let the lens creep. Easily removed, but I keep it on all of the time. It is black so it is barely noticeable Good luck. July 11, 2014
Lens creep solution...maybe! I just bought this as a refurbished lens from a Nikon dealer on eBay. The price was reasonable and I have had good experience with a Nikon refurbished D7000. The reviews have only good things to say about the lens' optical performance. The only complaint is the mid-range zoom creep. So I checked this out and sure enough my unit also exhibited this behavior when it was held almost vertically up or down. This is no problem for me. For fun I tried a solution that seems to work. Right behind the lens there is a non-rotating tube that slides inside a rotating tube as the lens zoom position changes. Zoom the lens to the 200mm position. Attach a 1¼-inch piece of black electrical tape lengthwise on the bottom of the non-rotating tube. The tape's thickness seems to provide enough friction within the rotating tube to prevent zoom creep. Make sure the tape lies flat with no wrinkles. With the camera on its back and the lens cap on, of course, I placed a 3.3 oz. weight and the lens started to creep back from about the 100mm position. So, it seems, that little piece of tape is just right. It is hardly noticeable because it's the same color as the lens. Now let's see if this fix lasts after long lens use. Incidentally, the lens cap and shade weigh 1.1 oz. and cause no creep. On another matter, I notice that this is referred to as a "walk-around" lens because of it's zoom range. Well, a D7000 with this lens, an MB-D11, lens cap and hood weighs 3 lbs. 13.5 oz. A lot of weight to just "walk-around." That's what I like about Nikons...solidly built! April 12, 2014
covers my zoom needs heavier than expected, but, really does the job. i am very pleased with the quality of pix across all ranges April 6, 2014
A Wonderful All In One By far I have taken the most pictures (Thousands) with this lens. It is my go to when on vacation. I like this lens so much I kept it when I bought my D800. As you may be aware the D800 is excellent at showing you any inconsistencies or mistakes in your equipment or skills. Attached are recent photographs taken with this lens on my D800. Prime example, the middle picture showing the the Green Monkey was shot handheld at 1600 ISO, 80mm, f/5, 1/60 sec. in a fairly dark environment and is sharp with excellent color. Hope this helps remove any concerns you may have with this lens. January 2, 2014
I love this lens. I have been using this lens for about a month and find it to be great. I've had to do a little reading to learn how to focus with this lens but I'm learning quickly and am delighted with my photos. They are very sharp - even on shots that are at the end range of the lens. My Nikon D5100 came with two lens as a package but I found that having to switch lens every time I wanted to do a close-up was a nuisance. I also didn't like having to carry the two lens around. I had been going to sell the whole kit but when I read about this lens (all very positive by the way) I bought the lens and am very glad I did. May 21, 2013

Answer: 
I wouldn't recommend tele-converters (extenders) due to them interfering with the designed engineering. If you need a longer focal length, grab another lens. Nikon does sell a Tele-Converter but its not that far priced from a much better solution of a longer focal length like the 70-300mm VR AF-S lens.

Answer: 
I have never used a D7000, but if it is compatible with the 18 - 200...
look on the side of the lens, there are three switches. The top one M/A -- M is for Manual/Auto and Manual focus.
Move the switch to M/A for auto focus. In M/A you can fine tune with manual focus.
For manual focus only, move the switch to M.

If no luck, check the lens on another compatible camera see if it works on that one.

An accident broke through our add on protective UV filter and scratched the front element of the lens. I know that in the old days expensive lenses like these could be repaired by the manufacturer replacing the front element. Can this still be done and if so is it significantly less expensive than getting a new lens? Aside from the scratches the lens appears to work fine and as they are on the front element the effect often isn't obvious though they can pick up and redirect light.

Answer: 
The 55-200 and the 18-200 both have the same maximum focal length of 200mm. The 11x zoom is the minimum focal length x 11 which equals 198mm approx. With the 18-200 you don't need the other 2 lenses as it covers the same focal length of your other lenses. 18mm on the short end (the 18-55) and 200mm on the long end (the 55-200) If you want greater focal length you will need a 300, 400 or 600mm maximum focal length.

Answer: 
This lens will mount on an FX camera and function just fine. However, the image circle of this lens is not large enough for an FX sensor so the full FX frame will not be exposed. Nikon has addressed this by having FX cameras (optionally) automatically detect DX lenses and adjust the portion of the sensor that is used to build the image. Depending on the FX camera, the DX crop mode may be indicated with either a grayed area or cop marks.

Answer: 
The answer to your question is.... Perhaps. Both the sped (f stop) of the lens and the speed (sensitivity) of the camera need to be considered. If you have a camera that can obtain clean images at ISO 3200 or higher, this lens is probably fast enough. With a slower camera, you may not be able to get blur free images of the moving band. Also, as the focal length gets longer, the lens slows down, meaning that the higher the zoom, the slower the shutter speed you will need in order to obtain proper exposure. All that having been said, this is a great lens. While the 70-200mm f/2.8 might be more suitable for this application, it is much more expensive and not as useful for close subjects. So, if your camera body has good low light capability, this lens is good choice. If not, it may still work fine for you, but it will be dependant on the lighting and perhaps more prone to blurred images.
