A tripod collar is not included with the Nikon 70-200mm f/4G ED VR Lens but is available for separate purchase.
To keep its size and weight at a minimum, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR lens is not weather sealed.
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR Lens and Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens perform very similarly (that is, extremely well) in terms of image quality.
One main difference is the f/2.8 version has a wider maximum aperture, which means softer bokeh (especially beneficial for portraiture) and an extra stop’s worth of brightness that will assist with freezing action and shooting in dim conditions.
Unlike the f/4 lens, the f/2.8 is also weather sealed.
Consequently, another main difference is size and weight. The f/4 lens is slimmer and 580g lighter than the f/2.8 version.
