An already legendary fast-aperture Zoom-NIKKOR has been skillfully reengineered to meet the needs of higher resolution D-SLRs and more discriminating photographers. The new AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II incorporates seven ED glass elements in a newly developed optical system and now features Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat to virtually eliminate internal reflections, enhancing saturation and overall image quality. Vibration Reduction II image stabilization allows photographers to shoot remarkably crisp images hand-held at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would be otherwise possible. As with its predecessor, the new AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II will be a must-have for every serious Nikon shooter's bag. Rounded 9-blade diaphragm Focuses to 4.6 feet - Close focusing provided throughout the entire zoom range for extended versatility. Flower-shaped lens hood - Included HB-48 lens hood, shades the objective from unwanted, image-degrading light. Takes 77mm filters

Lens-making is an art--Nikon artisans craft Nikkor optics from the finest materials, taking pride in adding their intellect and technique to bring the world's finest lenses to life. They push the leading edge of lens-making in their effort to provide the "glass" that makes the world's greatest pictures.

AF Nikkor lenses work with Nikon SLRs for optimal performance, even the very latest. The Nikon 70-200mm f2.8G IF-ED AF-S VR is a compact, lightweight G-type fast telephoto zoom with Vibration Reduction. VR operation offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed three stops (eight times) faster. In addition, active vibration mode selection is possible, for use in an active situation such as in a car, boat, or plane. VR On/Off mode available.

The lens holds a fast and constant f2.8 maximum aperture through the entire focal range. The built-in Single Wave Motor provides ultra-fast, ultra-quiet AF operation. Five ED glass elements offer higher optical performance, and is protected by a dust and waterproof rubber sealing mount.

Internal-focusing design smooths focusing and has great body balance, and the filter attachment does not rotate with focusing. It also features an M/A mode that enables instant switching from autofocus to manual with virtually no lag time even during AF servo operation, no power consumption during manual focus operation, rounded diaphragm (9 blades) for natural blur, and focuses as close as 4.9 feet in autofocus and 4.6 feet in manual focus. High-performance Nikon Super Integrated Coating offers superior color reproduction and minimizes ghost and flare. Detachable tripod mounting collar provided.

The new G design enables apertures to be selected from select Nikon AF SLR camera bodies, incorporating distance information for flash and ambient light exposure processes. Fully compatible with Nikon TC-14E II, TC-17E II, and TC-20E II teleconverters and D1X, D2H, D1H, D100, D70, F6, F5, F100, N80, N75, and N65 cameras.

fantastic! by arron dobbins

the close focus is brilliant. Low light shooting is amazing, the VR is amazing and so useful and so sharp at f2.8.

Low Light - No Problem! by Richard Hobson

I hired the 70-200 f2,8 because I needed a good distance in low light. It didn't let me down. It was happy working at a kickboxing event in very low light. Focussing was spot on - even with the hectic pace of the competitors. I'd heard a lot about this lens from other event photographers and it lived up to it's expectations.
