Nikon AF-S DX 18-200mm VR II lens

Nikon has revealed an update to its popular DX-format superzoom, in the shape of the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR II. The revised version features a new zoom mechanism to combat ‘zoom creep’ (one of the most common user complaints about the original lens), along with a zoom lock switch to keep the lens compact when carried. Improved ‘Super Integrated Coating’ promises to reduce flare and ghosting while size, weight and optical construction remain unchanged. The lens will be on sale from September 2009.

More practical, more quality
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200MM F/3.5-5.6G ED VR II incorporates an all new zoom mechanism to prevent what is sometimes referred to as ‘zoom creep’ (the lens moves under its own weight when tilted). A new zoom lock switch keeps the lens compact when being carried as well.  The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200MM F/3.5-5.6G ED VR II also features an improved Super Integrated Coating, an exclusive multi-layer lens element coating which reduces ghost and flare, ensuring improved image quality and contrast.

The lens features Nikon’s exclusive Vibration Reduction (VRII), giving users the ability to shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops* slower than would otherwise be possible, thereby minimizing image blur caused by camera shake. The optical VR system also stabilises the viewfinder image enabling more accurate autofocus acquisition and framing to make it ideal for shooting in low light conditions without a tripod.
