The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-200 mm f/ 3.5-5.6 G ED VR DX II is an all-purpose zoom lens, equipped with an image stabilizer, for Nikon APS-C format DSLR cameras.
As compared to the first version, this lens is equipped with the system of Vibration Reduction II, which is claimed to provide the equivalent of shooting at shutter speeds up to four (with VRII) stops faster in handheld situations (according to the rule of a thumb, without image stabilizer exposure must be not less than 1/focal length). According to the reviews, VR II secures the equivalent of shooting at shutter speeds up to 2 - 3 faster at most.
Equivalent focal length: 27 - 300 mm.
