Unrivaled image quality

Nothing enhances the defining moment of a photo quite like a tack-sharp subject on a smooth blurred background. With an incredibly fast f/2 aperture, the AF-S VR NIKKOR 200mm f/2G IF-ED delivers these results and more. Superb low-light performance, Nikon’s superior Vibration Reduction (VR) image stablization technology with panning detection, legendary NIKKOR optics and more ensure you’ll achieve truly stunning results no matter what the subject or shooting situation.

Superlative performance

Wow! In focus part of image is likely the sharpest of my entire lens collection while the bokeh is probably the smoothest of my lens collection. Overall, it's my favorite lens! May 5, 2011
This is an amazing lens! This lens has outstanding build qualities and is a must for portraits and if you photograph sports in dark venues. The colors, sharpness and bokeh are simply amazing. It works exceptionally well with the TC-14E II and TC-20E III teleconverters. April 20, 2011
Outstanding image and build quality I received this lens in July, 2007. I love the images this lens produces. I cannot say enough good things about this lens. It's BIG and it's BAD. March 29, 2011
Simply an excellent lens This lens is a must if you photograph people. The sharpness and color rendition is simply amazing. I photographed one of my regular subjects with a D70s and this lens while walking with his mother on a brisk March day. The responsiveness of this lens is so quick, I was able to catch this moment just in time. Shooting info - D70s- 1/125 shutter speed, AF-S VR 200mm f2.0 lens at f8.0. Even with a 6mp camera the 13" x 19" inch print is beautiful. November 12, 2010
Best lens I love this lens, amazing detail and super fast lens. July 31, 2010
