AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II Lens Announced at CES 2015

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR II lens has been announced at CES 2015.

Optimized for Nikon’s compact DX-format DSLRs, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II features a retracting design that’s small and lightweight ideal for travel and everyday use. Thanks to a new retractable lens barrel design, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is remarkably small and lightweight, making it a well-balanced match to Nikon DX-format DSLRs. The lens takes standard 52mm filters and has a minimum focus distance of 1.1m.

The new Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR II Lens is priced at $349.95 and it will be available in February, 2015.
