Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 G ED IF AF-S VR Autofocus Lens Description

Details

AF-S Nikkor VR 70-200 f/2.8 ED IF high performane zoom lens features Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor, Vibration Reduction (prevents blur from camera shake for sharp images) and Internal Focusing. It also employs five Extra-low Dispersion glass elements to minimize chromatic aberration, thus providing superior optical performance at all apertures. The Silent Wave Motor enables ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful super-quiet operation. The VR operation offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed 3 stops faster. In addition, active vibration mode selection possible. For using in an active situation such as in a car, boat or plane. High-performance Nikon Super Intergrated Coating offers superior color reproduction and minimizes ghost and flare. Its rounded 9-blade diaphragm creates a pleasant natural bokeh. The G designation identifies the G design which incorporates distance information for flash and ambient light exposure processes. The 70-200mm lens is compatible with Nikon D1X, D1H, D100, F5, F100, N80, N75 and N65.

Staff Review

The Nikon 70-200 VR is the work horse lens and standard fair for the sports photographer. Really it's the basic pro zoom for any photographer needing a complete lens to round out your system.

Not for the faint of heart, it's a pro lens that’s well built and has significant weight to it. The VR feature is awesome and most will need it when hand holding the lens. The AF is pretty quick and the glass renders very sharp images. It's an F2.8 lens so it's great for low light situations also, there's not much that this lens cannot do. I could see this appealing to fashion photographers, journalists and those shooting sports. I’ve loved shooting the lens because it’s so versatile. - Michael Reese
