Intoruction:

This Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-SVR DX Nikkor lens was discharged in the professional market a long time ago, in November 2005. As expected, it became very popular very soon owing to its ‘silent-wave’ focusing, vibration reduction mechanism and 11.1x focal length range. To be brief, I’d say it is truthfully claimed to be an ‘all-in-one’ super-zoom walk-around lens suited for travel photography and many more. The technical specs are as follows:

Design:

Now comes the part that makes this Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-SVR DX Nikkor lens special. You must be thinking, “What’s the big deal? These features are not an innovation. Other lenses possess these qualities and were released decades ago.” I agree, but just compare the size, weight, optical quality and minimum focus distance of Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-SVR DX Nikkor lens with all such lenses. For a start I know one: Tokina’s 35-200mm from the early 1980’s, its size was a major obstacle in carrying it around not to mention its poor optical quality and unacceptably long minimum focus distance. Later in the 1990’s Sigma and Tamron introduced super-zoom lenses that did, to some extent, overcome these issues but the lenses were classified as ‘snap-shot’ lenses for vacation photographers by most of the users. Here comes the exciting part, this Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-SVR DX Nikkor super-zoom all-purpose lens changed this primitive impression of lens of such cadre and so now the professional photographers do not hesitate to add this lens to their collection of shooter armory. Unlike the others, it is happily accepted by professionals to be a good league super-zoom lens.

Operation:

This Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-SVR DX Nikkor lens works well with every Nikon digital SLR camera but sadly won’t work on film cameras. Some of the intriguing features this lens uses in its operation are VR (vibration reduction) to counter camera shake, instant auto/manual focus override and macro and zooming. This lens is capable of focusing at a distance as close as 8” from the front of the lens. This ability helps you take tight headshots as well as full-body or environmental shots with the same lens and would capture most of it without having to waste time changing lenses. The lens works as both wide-angle and telephoto in its operation, conveniently.

Conclusion:

As clear from the lens review you’ll be agreeing with me when I say, you won’t need a huge camera bag for casual trips. This saves you space. Secondly, you won’t need a tripod with this lens mostly because the second generation VR almost completely eliminates its need. Third, since it is an all-in-one super-zoom lens, you won’t need many other lenses for different situations. This saves you a lot of weight carrying which gets very difficult to manage when you’re travelling. Further, you won’t have to miss shots, while in the process of switching lenses or cameras. It is not wrong to conclude that it is a genuinely remarkable invention and worth your money. If you find yourself indulged in travel photography, this is your thing. Good luck.
