of width. Portraits, landscape, sports can all be done on this lens with the right camera settings. Only problem is low-light settings. Manual focus becomes your only option in that scenario. Conclusion: Buying this used at anywhere less than $200 is an absolute bargain. Durable from drops, easy to clean. Crisp photos and very easy to get used to.
Image quality, sharpness, low light capabilities, etc. are all about average. Nothing is going to wow you with this lens. Its pretty middle of the road, which was my expectation. IQ, sharpness, etc., could definitely be better. Overall, it is a serviceable lens in these respects. This part is a bit subjective, so I will leave it at that.
The AF/MF is a mixed bag. The AF motor is rather loud. Not so much that people around will think you have a "device," but just saying. It makes a lot more noise than my AF-P kit lenses. Also, there are less options in camera (D5600) for AF drive modes for AF-S, and the AF-P lenses are more capable in this respect. The focusing speeds are comparable to other budget lenses. Other than being noisy, the AF is good enough. The MF is not great. In fact, its poor. The MF ring feels like cheap china junk. It does not have that fluid dampened feeling like the AF-P kit lenses. Its loose and rickety by design. Also, the range is very short, which makes it hard to fine tune a manual focus. Finally, if you the AF is switched on, you cannot MF override by use of the ring. The ring becomes locked. The AF-P kit lenses do not do this. You can be in AF mode, but then also make a MF fine adjustment on the fly. This is a little annoying. I wouldn't say a dealbreaker, but definitely annoying.
Weight is also a consideration for me. Its rather a big consideration. Weight is what keeps me away from the 18-140 VR, and other very wide focal range lenses. Yes, it would be convenient to just bring one lens with a wider focal range vs two each with smaller ranges. But the 18-140 VR (490g) is quite a bit heavier than the 18-55 VR (205g) or 55-200 VR. (300g). It almost weighs as much as both combined. I would rather the lens on the camera be light, even if it means carrying a second (or more) lens in a backpack or whatever as I am always committed to bringing the backpack anyway. I also dont mind sacrificing photographic capabilities for lower weight. It works better for me in my hand, on a sling, or hung around my neck, and that is what keeps me shooting. This was perhaps the main reason I chose the D5600 over the D7500. If the whole package is too heavy, I am not bringing it with me and therefore getting no shots. If you are like me, you will love the lighter weight of the 55-200 VR despite its shortcomings.
Overall, for a budget lens, its a solid choice. Not going to take the best pictures, but good enough for general photography. The MF does suck big time. But, the light weight is a huge plus for people like me. Its pretty hard to argue against getting this lens at under one forty, so I would say low price is also a huge plus. If you are ok with bringing two or more lenses but also want to keep the bag and camera light, this lens a great choice. I really want to rate it 4.5 stars, with a half star deduction for the poor MF.

I needed a lens that did the extra zoom, After reading reviews and lookin at my budget the 55-200mm kit is brilliant for what I need, I would love to have the Nikon 55-300 kit but that is well over my budget, The lens itself when attached to the camera does not stick out much further than the standard kit that came with the camera, Maybe an extra 20mm so its great for putting in a camera case.
So the important part, Autofocus is powered by a silent wave motor, and auto focus speeds are pretty quick for a lens of this budget level.
The centre sharpness of the pictures is fantastic at most focal lengths, At maximum aperture and 55mm, sharpness is excellent across the frame, Changing the aperture to f/8 gives you great performance,
Zooming to 105mm results in a reduction of performance at maximum aperture. Here sharpness is very good in the centre, Changed the aperture again to f/8, performance at this focal length is much improved. Here sharpness is outstanding in the centre,
For best results at 200mm I went to f/11, The sharpness and quality of the image at this length is fantastic, Of course it helps having the Vibration Reduction switched on, Close-up performance is also pretty decent for a non-macro lens,
All In all this is a very good lens for the price, If your a novice like me, Then you will love it.
The picture taken of the moon is zoomed right up to 200mm, No tripod involved just my hand, The shot was taken in Auto mode and with the VR switched on, I have then cropped the picture on my PC, The pic shows how much detail you can get from this fantastic lens.
This is an excellent lens if you are on the move (e.g. holiday). It collapses down to a very reasonable size. The f-mount is plastic, but this isn't an especially heavy long lens, so unless you anticipate heavy duty use this doesn't seem a problem.
Ok, so I'm arguing this is better than Nikon's 300mm DX lens. That starts getting soft at about 135mm. Even at 200mm, you don't need to view the photos at 100% to see the vignetting (which is unbalanced, so doesn't even look "artistic"). The killer for that lens is the dreadful AF. In contrast the AF on this lens is fast. The optics aren't perfect, but far less troublesome than the 300mm (including when it is set to 200mm).
I wouldn't recommend it to someone who primarily shoots telephoto because they might wish to invest more. Let's be realistic, this is a plastic lens and that is reflected in the price, but it does the job for me. I mostly shoot at 35mm and 50mm, so this is a nice addition to my camera bag.
I've attached a photo shot at 200mm at dusk. This has been resized, but it isn't a crop. The fox stopped for a second to sniff something, and that was enough time for the AF to lock on. The tail is slightly soft because it was moving.
I only had one problem, and that was that VR (VR II on this one) actually introduced vibration at certain shutter speeds, where turning off VR gave a better image. At something like 1/200s at 200mm, the VR often made the image worse than without VR (handheld, not on tripod, obviously). I don't know if my sample was bad, or it's anything to do with the body (D3200).
Returned it for this reason.
Covers majority of focal lengths you need to start off with. Will be using at Silverstone at the F1 grand Prix, will update with shots.
Of course, I'm talking as a beginner with an entry-level DSLR
The image quality is very good, it takes very sharp pictures. I just need to remember to mount the camera on my tripod if I intend to snap at full zoom. Not the best with low lighting, but that was expected.
Glad I didn't return it.
viel Kunststoff (aber gut verarbeitet),
Fokusring zu steil und zu leichtgängig,
keine Sonnenblende im Lieferumfang.
Der Autofokus arbeitet (vor Allem für diese Preisklasse) leise und schnell. Positiv ist weiterhin die Transportstellung, die das Objektiv verkürzt und sichert. Sehr gutes Produkt.
