From its enhanced autofocusing (SWM), VR II image stabilization, Nano Crystal Coat (N), Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and more, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II will broaden your shooting potential and inspire some of your most impressive shots yet.

Nikon Vibration Reduction

Learn more about Nikon’s in-lens VR image stabilization which assures dramatically sharper still images and video capture when shooting handheld.
*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when: FX-format compatible lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
Vibration Reduction
Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
Nano Crystal Coat
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A-M
A-M
A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
M/A
M/A
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
IF Lens
IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Expensive for a Hobbyist but no Regrets As an amateur photographer, with an 80-400mm zoom lens already in my bag, this lens was a purchase of the heart, not the head. Any regrets? None. This lens is superb. While it may be a similar weight and length to the 80-400mm zoom, it is thinner, making it a little less obtrusive. The f2.8 aperture and fast auto-focus are wonderful. The image quality is 2nd to none. The negative, for me, weight and size. I travel almost weekly, and admit hauling a D610, plus a couple of lenses, can get tiring. On those weeks I want to travel light I take a 28 - 300mm lens. It does the job and fits in my carry on bags. Yes it is expensive for a non-professional, but if you are looking to purchase a lens that will give years of service, and thrill you with the quality of the pictures, the 70 - 200mm f2.8 has to be on the list. June 24, 2014
Fast focus, great IQ This lens was purchased when I owned a D700 and like my other Nikon lenses, was permanently mounted until I switched to D800 bodies. Still my fastest focusing lens, with great sharpness, color and contrast; the vibration reduction feature works very well to reduce motion blur while photographing from my kayak. June 19, 2014
Great Low Light lens. Sharp, vibration control excellent OK. I finally bought the lens that I needed and my photos of my daughter in her high school play were what I had always hoped I could capture. May 13, 2014
Quality Lens This is probably the Sports Nikon lens (Period) I recommend this lens for anyone that is serious about photography. Always get good shots with this one using a D4. May 6, 2014

Answer: 
both are OK, active is a mode that you use when you shoot video and you're doing a panning shot -- active "realizes" that you're panning and it doesn't try to compensate in the panning direction.

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
I have two questions regarding this expensive lens (product id number 2185) for my Nikon D2XS dslr camera ...

1) This lens is advertised as a fixed aperature lens. Yet the specs indicate that the aperture range is from f2.8 to f22. So my question is: if this is a fixed aperture lens why do you specify that it can be stopped down to f22? Is this a mistake on the specs? Or is it possible to adjust the aperture if I desire all the way down to f22?

2) I want to be absolutely certain that I can use this lens with my D2XS which is a DX format camera. Please be absolutely sure of your reply.

Thank you very much!

Answer: 
1) Fixed aperture lens isn't a right word for this product. I would say "the aperture remains constant at any focal length. For example: you set aperture to f/2.8 at 70mm and when you zoom to 200mm, the aperture will remains at f/2.8. However, you can adjust the aperture to 3.5, 4, 5.6, 8 up to 22 for the smallest aperture. No, it's not Nikon's mistake.

2) Yes, it fully functions on D2Xs, however, D2Xs is a DX format camera which means the 70-200 will scales up to 105-300mm due to the crop factor.

Answer: 
1. Fixed aperture means and no matter the zoom range you set the lens you can still set it up for f/2.8 but it can also adjust up to f22.
2. Yes, this lens is compatible with the D2xs. Click on the linck below for information on FX and DX format:

I am a prospective Nikon customer hoping to purchase the D800 or D7000 with selective lenses. It is my understanding that some Nikon telephoto lenses creep when pointed up or down. I would like to know which lenses have this problem and what Nikon is doing, if anything, to eliminate the problem.

Answer: 
Hi
I have owned the previous version of this lens for 5 years.
Have never experienced "lens Creep". with the Nikon Pro model lenses,
they have internal focus and focal adjustment, therefore I believe there will never be lens creep
because all is internal. I own and older version of the 70-300mm, non pro lens and only experienced
"lens creep" once or twice. I believe any of the "pro" f/2.8 or lower lenses will never have a worry of lens creep.
Hope this helps.
Wish you success in your purchase and welcome to Nikon...

Answer: 
I can only speak for myself. I've never experienced that problem with my 70-200, nor with any other Nikkor zoom lens. If I had, the lens would have gone back to Nikon for repair. I would expect any heavily used, nose heavy lens to loosen up over time, necessitating factory adjusting. My three year old 70-200 is used 7 days a week, 4 to 12 hours during the summer. In winter usage drops to a couple of hours a week. I do not work in hot weather extremes when the different components might expand or contract causing creep so I can't address that situation. Nor have I experienced the problem in below zero temperatures.

Answer: 
When using Vibration reduction (VR) on a D-SLR that has the AF-On button such as the D800, or D300 etc, the AF-ON button will only activate the cameras focusing and metering systems, it does not activate the lens VR function. To activate the VR function, the shutter release must be used to focus.

The AF-ON button is particularly useful for sports photographers to focus track a subject before shooting with the shutter release. Using this method restricts the time the VR system has to activate and therefore sometimes it does not have time to fully stabilise the image.

If VR stabilisation is an important consideration, it is recommended to always use the shutter release to ensure that the VR system is activated during focus tracking.

My initial question was what is the part number for the tripod foot on the 70-200 2.8 lens. I have misplaced mine and need to replace it. What is the cost as well?

I have been looking at this lens as well as the 24-70 f2.8. Right now my funds for a lens are on the limited side and since I don't do photography professionally and don't have a high income, i need to build my lens collection slowly. Which would be better for me to start with? this one or the 24-70 f2.8? I do a good deal of outdoor portraits and nature photography as well so I know this one would work great for those. I'm just concerned about the minimum focal length on this one being a problem for doing indoor photography. Any advise on which would be the better starting point to build from?

Upgrade from the D90????

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
I have the D90 with this lens AF-S NIKKOR
70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II . For the most part I get great images. I wonder if I have a lot more lens than camera at times. I feel that a faster camera especially in the auto focus part may help me more. I miss some shots that are out of focus. I like the video option on the D90. I paid about 1000.00 or little more for it and a kit lens included. What would be a great upgrade without spending 2 thousand dollars. I want to keep the video capability. I want a fast focus and trigger. what are some thoughts that may bring my camera up to my lens? Thanks

Taking videos with D7000

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
I started with the same setting that I used with my Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G AF-S DX VR IF-ED. That setting always gives me great videos. For whatever reason it did not work well with this lens. I experimented with different focus and aperture settings, and a long story short, videos came out blurry, it was hard to focus at the widest zoom, I was able to get a sharp video only when got closer to 200mm. During recording all looked sharp on a monitor, but when I downloaded on my computer I was quite surprised, could not believe the results. The environment was an indoor pool, not easy but as I said my 55-200mm lens always performed very well and gave me very nice videos. This time I hoped I will get perfect photos as well as great videos, but unfortunately that was not the case. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I am looking for a telephoto lens to use when taking sports photos. I currently have a D3000 with a telephoto zoom lens but now I am looking for a lens with a f/2.8 so I can take even quicker shots.

Numerous 1/4 sockets. Is one more suited for dx or fx? Can I use the one on the lens itself? Which should I use for a Blackrapid Strap system?

On the tripod collar there are 2 sockets for a tripod on the foot and a 3rd on the lens when the foot is removed. The manual gives no indication as to which to use. I am curious if one is for heavier cameras [fx] or if the one directly on the lens can be used [without the foot attachment] And if a Blackrapid strap [a strap that clips to a bolt that screws into the tripod mount] should be placed in any particular socket or if it could be directly mounted to the lens.

Answer: 
The Sockets on the tripod collar are there to balance the weight of the camera and the lens on the tripod. The front socket should be use when a lighter camera (e.g.D90) is attached to the lens, and the rear socket should be use when a heavy camera (e.g. D4) is attached.
