Nikkor 55-200mm VR LensUsing some cash from Mum, Dad and Grandad for my birthday, I bought the Nikkor AF55-200mm lens with Vibration Reduction (VR) for my Nikon D40 camera. The lens cost 7700 Baht from EC-Mall at Future Park Rangsit. I have been busy with other things (like buying a car) so haven't had much of a chance to try it out. However it is easy to notice the VR working: as you zoom into an object you can hear and feel the VR going to work, and the resulting photos are excellent. This is a great feature, given I am not very steady with the camera yet. I've also found it much easier to get the low depth of field shots with this lens, e.g. a clear picture of someones face, with the blurred background. You can see some of the initial shots with this lens from my trip to Khon Kaen.
