I disagree.

in my opinion, The 55-200vr is a lens that was slow to focus and gave off lots of CA. It is of a decent value for the mid $200 range, but I wouldn't dare compare it to my "expensive" lens, meaning the 70-200VR. Not in any term of performance outside of in bright light.

Now, with that being said, the lens can produce decent results, but only in near perfect conditions.

55-200VR sample from a wedding long ago.

is this supposed to be an example of what the lens can or can not do?

I agree with Per here, the 55-200 Vr is one of the size champs in the Nikon lineup and a truly excellent value.
