Nikon makes the FX-format telephoto zoom of choice for professional photographers faster, lighter, and more agile than ever. Engineered to excel, the new AF-S NIKKOR 70–200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR will keep photographersworking with Nikon’s fast-shooting DSLRs one step ahead.
Whether shooting sports, action, news, or reportage, the latest incarnation of this renowned lens boasts a range of enhancements that make a real difference in the field. Improved AF tracking and exposure control, as well as VR SPORT mode, combine to deliver exceptional burst shooting. Compared to its predecessor, edge-to-edge performance is improved, and light fall off has been reduced. The closest focus distance is now an impressive 1.1 m, and the maximum reproduction ratio has increased from 0.11x to 0.21x. Configurable buttons on the barrel make operation smoother, and the zoom and focus ring positions are reversed for more balanced handling. Thanks to a new magnesium alloy lens barrel, and HRI and fluorite elements, this lens has never been so light, yet the build is as tough as ever.
