Nikon USA Factory refurbished with 90 Day Nikon Warranty.

Features:

  • 3.6x Telephoto DX Zoom-Nikkor: Versatile and compact 3.6 Zoom-Nikkor brings the action to the photographer. Ideal for portraiture, family, sports, nature and wildlife.
  • Approximates the picture angle characteristic of an 82-300mm lens in the 35mm format. 
  • Vibration Reduction: Nikon's VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effects of camera shake, allowing hand-held shooting at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible for dramatically sharper images. 
  • ED Glass Element: An ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass element minimizes chromatic aberration, contributing to superior optical performance. 
  • Silent Wave Motor for Fast, Quiet AF: New compact rod-type Silent Wave Motor (SW) enables ultra-high speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation. 
  • Focus Mode Switch: Enables quick switching between A (Autofocus) and M (Manual Focus). 
  • Lens Construction: 15 Elements in 11 groups 
  • 9-Blade Rounded Diaphragm: Provides more natural out-of-focus highlights.

4 out of 5 stars   Versatile zoom range
By wvhillbilly on April 08, 2015
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Lens (NK55200VRBB)
Pros: Light, compact, good optics. "Everything" that would have been in original box was included in a *very well* cushioned shipping container - product manual, slip-case, etc. Only thing missing was factory box- as expected. The lens appears brand new. 100-or-so initial shots show it's optics to be very good and quite acceptable (to my eyes) - the main "work" is up to me- pressing the shutter button.
Cons: Typical "kit lens" construction (i.e.; plastic bayonet flange, plastic period). - But - this= less weight too...
Other Comments: It's "hard" to give a "kit lens" a glowing 5-Star review; this is a good lens for bright days. I would not purchase this lens @retail$ (new), but the refurbished price was good enough to entice me to add it to my kit. I'm glad I did. The "sweet spot" range of this lens is quite adequate, once you find it. Buydig's service was EXCELLENT - fair price, item received as-described, on-time- as promised. Definitely will consider Buydig for future needs.

5 out of 5 stars   A wonderful deal
By Minty on July 07, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Lens (NK55200VRBB)
Pros: I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised at how sharp the the pictures are turning out, even at 200mm. The autofocus works quickly and the lens is lighter in weight than it looks. It's a keeper.
Cons: At f4-5.6, it is not so good with very low light, which is where I usually do my work, but this is a great lens when I'm in better lighted situations. There is a tiny bit of noise when autofocusing but not at all a dealbreaker.

5 out of 5 stars   Nikon AF-S DX VR 55-200 mm lens
By litterock on May 13, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Lens (NK55200VRBB)
Pros: I think for the price is was the best lens I ever bought. The auto focus is remarkably accurate even in low light, the VR function is helpful and works better than I thought it would - I have never had it before with any other lens so I don't have anything to compare, but it results in better shots, particularly indoors, than my lenses without VR. All in all I would buy lenses from Buydig.com any time I needed them. And I hope I can find other Factory Refurbished lenses because the one I just bought is better then new!!
Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 stars   Awesome lens for the price
By whiggy on April 15, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Lens (NK55200VRBB)
Pros: Cheap Light Small VR
Cons: None
Other Comments: Had this lens before, then sold it... then realized I made a mistake and re-bought it from BuyDig.com refurbished. The lens I received was in like-new condition and performs great. Definitely no regrets going with a refurb. BuyDig.com is awesome - fast shipping, great customer service (dealt with them previously). This lens is the best bang for the buck for an affordable Nikon DX zoom. It is unpretentious and simply delivers great IQ in this tier. Sure, it's not a constant f/2.8 aperture and not 400mm at the long end but it is also not $2000 and 5 lbs. And the plastic mount... please, how many people do you know that had real problems with plastic mount lenses... I don't know anyone. Sure, ff you drop your camera the mount might break off but that's better than a heavy lens ripping off or warping the mount on your camera. Great companion to the 18-xx mm kit lenses.
