The Nikon Nikkor 18-200VR2 or the AF-S DX nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6g ed VR II, is an upgraded version of the very well-liked and useful 18-200mm VR lens. It is a super-zoom lens in the DX design. The lens has been upgraded mainly to address the zoom creep problem, which according to users, was the most annoying issue with the earlier lens. The new lens also comes with a switch that locks the zoom while in motion. With a new and better “super integrated coating”, the problems of flaring and ghosting are considerably reduced too. There isn’t any alteration in the size dimensions and the look too is similar to the predecessor. The lens was launched in September 2009 and was at the time sold for £729.99 / €887.00 / $849.95.
