Shadow in Light
Testing a new Nikon 55-200mm VR lens. Overall, it feels like a natural extension to the stock Nikon 18-55mm VR lens that comes with the D5000. 200mm is equivalent to 4x the vision of humans. The 55-200mm is light, sharp, portable, almost the same minimum aperture at f/4-f/5.6 and easy to use, just like the 18-55mm lens. Unlike the 18-55mm however, it has very little distortion, even at 200mm (so little you need to place a ruler against your screen to see the distortion).
In terms of hand-held/portable shooting, the Nikon 55-200mm VR is fully operable during daytime. At 200mm, you will need to shoot at a minimum of 1/400 second to get a sharp shot hand-held, although you might get away with 1/200 second if you are shooting a stationary subject while breathing like a sniper. You will have no problem getting a shutter speed of 1/400 second on sunny days. However, due to this minimum shutter speed of 1/400 second for a sharp image hand-held, one must get comfortable with the idea of using ISO speeds in the thousands when shooting in less ideal conditions. On overcast days, you would be in the range of ISO 2000 to ISO 3600 to shoot at 1/400 second. On stormy conditions and during the blue hour, you will be in the range of the ISO "HI"s, which translate to ISO 3200-6400, marking the end of shooting hand-held at 200mm with the Nikon 55-200mm VR, at least with the D5000, because you start losing the images at ISO 3200 and above (and noise-removal filters are not enough to rescue some of the saturation and sharpness lost when shooting at high ISO speeds with the D5000).
As for the price point for the Nikon 55-200mm VR lens, I was able to get this lens at a mere €180 euros after discounts. Normal list price would probably be around €200 euros. Conclusion? The Nikon 55-200mm VR is top value, and is (for the Nikon ecosystem at least), the best tele-zoom for its price available.
