The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G VR is designed exclusively for use with Nikon’s DX-format DSLRs, and covers an effective focal range of 82-300mm. A good 'next purchase' for an entry-level DSLR kit, the 55-200m features optical image stabilization which helps to keep things stable, allowing for the use of slow (ish) shutter speeds at longer focal lengths.
