Vibration Reduction not working

I have the lens about 4 months and was not too impressed with it until I seen VR working on a friends camera. Now I realise mine was not working from the start. It is on a Nikon D80 and the unit is turned on.

    Camera still takes fuzzy photos even when vr is on.

    Lens settings - M/A, VR On, Normal (not Active) -- when you press the shutter release halfway and it focuses, you should hear a tick from the lens as VR engages and you may even hear the little gyros spinning. Do you hear this? At 200mm it's pretty obvious when VR engages because all the little jumpies stop.

This feature is not an "end-all" to using a tripod for those razor sharp images. The VR may buy you one or two stops of light max. This may be enough in a pinch but invest in a tripod (a good one) for razor sharpness!

I bought a AF-S 55-200 VR about four months ago. Lately, the VR doesn't seem to work right. It jumps around and often produces worse results than not having it on at all. I have the kit lens that came...


If the lens is only four months old then it's still under Nikon's warranty, so there is absolutely no point in trying to repair this yourself. Faults like these are most likely to occur in the first few months of use.

Just send it to the nearest authorised Nikon service centre or if you live in the UK you can demand a refund or exchange from the retailer. Given the choice, I'd strongly recommend the second option.

Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Vs. Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX are they the same len or not? thanks, Ricky at rpotter@eatel.net


No. The VR lens has 15 elements in 11 groups, the other has 13 elements in 9 groups. This indicates that the two lenses have different optical designs. The main difference, however, is that the VR indicates "vibration reduction." This lens has motion sensors and tiny motors that move the lens elements to compensate for camera motion, producing clearer pictures when hand-holding the camera.

Manual Focus won't work


Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.

D50 with a new 18 -200 Nikon lens


Is the Auto/Manual Focus switch turned to Manual? This can easily be moved without realising that you have done so.

If not, get it checked out under Warranty. If you try to do anything yourself you will void the Warranty.

Good luck.
