The Nikon 55-200mm lens is has a great range and is very light weight compared to other lenses.
I took this lens out on a sunny day and was quite pleased with how the results were. First I tested the ranges up close to an object to see if it had any problems focusing but both images were clear. This lens would be good for most types of photography, including macro, portraits, street etc. The only problem that I had with the lens was when photographing a landscape type image, it took a while to get a focus point. But overall a good lens and would recommend this.
