The AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR II is a new version of Nikon's older 18-200mm, designed exclusively for use with Nikon's DX (APS-C) DSLRs, covering an effective focal range of 27-300mm. This lens features a new zoom mechanism to combat 'zoom creep' (one of the most common user complaints about the original version), 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.
