Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Bali - AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II

At 75 kilometres, the Ayung River is known as the longest river in Bali, Indonesia. It is also a popular destination for white water rafting. To capture the action and exhilaration of the white water rafters heading down the rapids, Nikon professional photographer Scott A. Woodward chose the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II.

Weighing approximately 300g, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is an incredibly lightweight and compact telephoto zoom lens, perfect for photographers on-the-go. With its wide focal length range, this versatile lens allowed Scott and his student Cazmir Leenheer to get right into the heart of the action without having to position themselves and their equipment near the water.

Designed with a Vibration Reduction (VR) system that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster, Scott and Cazmir are able to capture sharp images of the unpredictable, fast-moving subjects even during handheld shooting. Equipped with Nikon’s advanced optical technologies, the versatile AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is great for sports, action, and wildlife photographers.
