The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens empowers you to adapt to changing conditions and achieve a versatile portfolio of images with just the one lens. With its medium-to-telephoto zoom range, you could enjoy shooting high-quality portraits, wildlife, nature and sports action – plus fashion shots, gorgeous wide landscapes and dramatic HD videos. Further heightening the flexibility factor is the maximum f/2.8 aperture, which is available across the entire zoom range.
With a constant maximum f/2.8 aperture, this Nikon 70-200mm lens performs exceptionally well in low light conditions. Whether you’re capturing a portrait at the widest perspective or a netball game at the telephoto end, this lens picks up light beautifully and as a result, allows faster shutter speeds and handheld shooting for longer. The bright f/2.8 aperture also makes it possible to craft stunning bokeh effects for those times when you want to emphasis your subject in crisp detail and effectively blur out the surrounds.
The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens features Nikon’s outstanding Vibration Reduction (VR) technology, effectively offsetting camera shake by up to four stops. So whether you’re at an indoors event with moody lighting or you’re photographing outside as the sun starts to dip below the horizon, you will have that extra boosting power to get the crisp, in-focus shots you need while shooting handheld.
Choose from three different ways to focus with this Nikon zoom lens: A/M (autofocus with manual override), AF priority or M (manual focus). The autofocusing is powered by a Silent Wave Motor, which ensures it is quiet, and the manual focus override can be turned on at any time by simply rotating the focus ring. The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens gives you the control to get exactly the shot you’re imagining.
The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens flaunts excellent optics which deliver on its promise to capture spectacular photos and video. It is made up of 21 elements in 16 groups, including seven extra-low dispersion glass elements to improve the flow of light and a special Nano Crystal Coating to eliminate ghosting and flares. The result? Stunning, detailed images with flawless colour and graduations.
