I am confused with the difference between Nikon AF-S DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G Telephoto Lens and Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G AF-S VR DX IF-ED Telephoto Zoom Lens
Can some one clarify me on this??
Thanks in advance

Your confusion is understandable. The lenses are very similar indeed, as noted in comparison / review by Thom Hogan. On Nikkor lenses, "IF" is an acronym for internal focusing - so that using polarizing filters should be easier with the IF-ED lens. But the most significant (and costly) difference is actually considered to be VR, standing for Vibration Reduction, which compensates for your hands shaking, helping to keep longer exposures free from blur caused by that.
