The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR offers peerless versatility and optical performance. A longer than standard zoom range with a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout ensures everything from sports/action and wildlife to portraiture, fashion, and everyday subjects can be captured with exceptional sharpness, contrast and clarity, even in low light conditions. Improved optics render outstandingly high resolution, frame-wide detail at virtually any focal length while keeping aberrations, ghosting and flare to a minimum.
With a shorter minimum focus distance (1.1m vs 1.4m) and higher maximum reproduction (0.21x vs 0.11x) than its predecessor, the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens lets you get nearer to subjects AND capture distant subjects in stunning close-up detail. With this lens every detail—from the texture of feathers on a bird’s outstretched wing to the beads of sweat on an athlete’s brow—can be brought vividly to life and emphasised against stunning bokeh.
The Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens features a groundbreaking Vibration Reduction (VR) system that takes effect with a half-press of your camera’s shutter button. In NORMAL mode, VR in this lens reduces camera shake by the equivalent of four stops for noticeably steadier handheld shots. Fast, unpredictably moving subjects are usually a challenge to capture, especially when you’re handholding and shooting in continuous bursts. The VR system’s SPORT mode makes this easier than ever, providing a stable viewfinder image with no adverse effect on frame rate or release time lag.
Enhanced autofocus (AF) tracking performance in the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens ensures you’ll never miss that crucial moment, even during high-speed burst shooting. Not only that, the lens also features an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism that keeps auto-exposure precisely controlled, again even when shooting in high-speed bursts.
The Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens is as agile as it is robust. Constructed from highly durable magnesium alloy, the lens is lighter than the older Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, reducing fatigue and boosting mobility in a wide range of shooting scenarios. Anti-dust and water-resistant properties offer protection and performance no matter the conditions while a dust, water, oil and dirt-repelling coating on the lens’ front element offers both better clarity and easier maintenance. Improved handling and four customisable focus function buttons make this Nikon lens almost like an extension of your body.
