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

I notice when I shoot a bright background with this lens and zoom from about 100-200 mm - a ciruclar shadow starts at the corners and works it's way towards the center of the picture. "The corners of my photo get shadowed" when I zoom in.

Is this normal for this lens? - there are no filters or hoods on the lens.

Answer: 
This lens does display some fall-off in the corners at 100mm and longer at f stops wider then about f/8. At f/8 and smaller, it should disappear. I don't find the problem too severe and I find that the lens is sharpest around f/8 anyway. I don't see a problem at f/8, f/11 etc. I am assuming that you are using a DX camera.

I use this lens on my D5000 and when I take video, it does not focus automatically. I was considering upgrading to the D3200 or the D5100 due to the auto focus feature available when shooting video. I just needed to know if all compatible lenses are able to carry out the auto focus feature? The product info mentions the standard 18-55 lens is able to carry out the auto focus feature. But what about other lenses? Such as the 18-200 or the 55-200? Is the camera still going to be able to auto focus with any lens or this feature is only available on the 18-55.

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
I have had this lens for a while. It feels fine during zooming. However, I got a feeling the maximum is less than 200mm. So I compared with other lens I have at 200mm, and this one is at least 15% shorter. The zoom doesn't seem to increase much when I turn from 135 to 200mm. My estimate is that it's really a 18-170mm zoom lens or less. Anyone else has similar experience? Is there something wrong with mine?

Answer: 
If you already have a 55-300 then I would go for the 16-85. The 18-200 is ok but its not great, with the 16-85 and you 55-300 you would have most focal lengths covered.

I bought my 18-200mm lens for my D40x camera body. It's the only lens I have. Not quite happy with the sharpness of my photos. They sometimes also seem a little dull in color and washed out to me. Sometimes just the opposite with unnatural over saturated colors, for example, when taking closeups of flowers. (II use auto focus/point and shoot virtually all the time).

Would putting this lens on a different camera body such as the D7000 improve the quality of the photos I take with this lens? Or would I be happier with another lens on my D40x such as the Nikkor prime 35mm?

Answer: 
You didn't mention manufacturer of Lense (Sigma/Nikon/Tamron). So I can't suggest you further to buy new cam. If it's Nikor lens then you can buy D7000.... but

This 18-200mm lens cannot focus extremely close, it's fine for tightly framed shots of some nature subjects, particularly at the 200mm focal length. Especially at f/11 and at f/16 - apertures often used for adequate depth of field - image quality can be impressive.

Best way to get close up picture from distance and crop it. And try to understand ISO setting (in manual) of your camera.

half pressing shutter button, i notice a single "click" then i let go the shutter button another "click"
the AF motor sound is barely noticeable
i have try the Kit lens (18 - 105) this one does not make that "click" sound

Answer: 
If your lens is otherwise functioning properly and has not experienced any impact that may have damaged it, then the noise you hear is most likely the sound of the VR (Vibration Reduction). Check out this article on Nikonusa.com for more information about VR and its potential for making noise:

Answer: 
When recording a Video using Auto Focus Fulltime, you may hear the focus mechanism moving in the lens.That is because It has to constantly move back and forth in the lens to obtain focus.

Answer: 
With use it will loosen up, the lock switch is good if you are carrying the camera on a strap. You will probably experience creep if you use the lens a lot.

Is AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II compatible with any Nikon Teleconverter?

I'm planning to use my Nikon D80 with my AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II lens on a safari trip in Africa. I'm afraid my zoom won't be powerful enough to get the daytime wildlife images I'm planning to.
I wonder if I should purchase a new powerful zoom lens or just a Teleconverter compatible with my existing lens to increase my zooming capabilities.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi, I own a D3200 and a 18-55mm DX lens currently. I am looking to add a lens from 18-200 (or 18-300).

Will this lens (18-200) cast a shadow when using the built-in flash of D3200? I read that the 18-300 lens will do so, therefore considering the 18-200 lens. I do not want to buy (and carry) a speedlight.

Answer: 
Then using the D3200 and an 18-200mm lens, be precautions of angling. If angled a certain way, the image may project a round shadow at the bottom of the image. This can all be prevented. Here is an article that goes into more details about the shadowing of lenses: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

I have mounted my Nikon AF-S 18-200mm lens on my Nikon D40. Have taken a few pictures by I find the following:

There is never a green focus frame in the viewfinder. It is always red. The pictures I take DO come out in focus.

Does not do this with my other lens(18-55) on camera.

Not sure what to do. Any recommendations?

The focus points will highlight in red in the viewfinder and the focus indicator dot will display in green. If your D40 is not displaying focus in this way please contact Nikon support at http://support.nikonusa.com
