The Ultimate 70-200

I used to have the Nikon AF-S 70-200 VR and it was a good lens, but it felt cumbersome, unbalanced and I had primes that would beat it most of the time, especially at distance. I sold that lens and got a 70-200 VRII. The 70-200 VRII is a world of difference. Number one is it's very sharp, at any and all focal lengths, even wide-open. Better color, contrast, faster-more accurate focus and the VRII is amazing. It handles much better and is much more well-balanced. I no longer have any primes that beat this wonder-lens at equal apertures. This is the lens I go to automatically if I need the range of 70-200. Best lens I've ever owned. The ONLY drawback I've found with this lens is the lens hood. On one hand, it has a better lock than the older version, but on the other hand, the hood seems short and the petal edges are rounded so you can't stand the lens on its hood on standby when you need it fast. I have found a different hood that takes it's place and I now keep the original hood in the box.

The Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED is a workhorse ... when it works. Unfortunately for me, I bought a lemon. Since shortly after purchase the VR assembly failed. It has since been to the shop three times, none of the visits has solved the problem. From what I understand it now falls under CA Lemon Law protection. For this reason I cannot recommend this lens. If you are looking to buy the 70-200, go with the VRII.

    Comments about Nikon AF-S Fx NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Camera Lens:

    I use it on a Nikon D750. I take many pictures of indoor basketball / volleyball games. Typical high school gyms very very poor lighting. This lens is such an improvement over my 70-300 Nikon 4.5-5.6 or my 24-120 F4 nikon lens.

    Sharp edge to edge

    By 

    from Kansas

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens:

    The day I received this I used it for a VERY large group photo on a D800. The clarity all the way to the edge of the frame was ASTOUNDING. Happy to have a lens that keeps pace with the high resolution images current cameras capture. This purchase replaced the previous generation of this lens. I always enjoyed it...but this lens brings it to a whole new level.

    Sharp Lens

    By 

    from Florida

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens:

    This lens was recommended to me by several people. I rented one earlier this year for a trip to the Monterey coast. I finally bought a refurbished unit from Nikon a month ago. It is sharp, no doubt. The autofocus is sometimes tricky and I need to spend more time to get accustomed to it.

    No substitute!

    By

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens:

    This lens has traveled from the northernmost tip of Norway (except Svalbard) to the Antarctic Peninsula. The only 'mid-range' zoom lens I have needed, Sharp, fast-focusing, and, in the grand scheme of things, light enough to be handheld. Yes, there is the new VR II, but I have not seen the need for that with this old reliable. The photo below taken handheld from a hot air balloon over Masai Mara in Kenya proves my point.

    Great performance in suboptimal conditions

    By 

    from Chicago, IL, USA

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens:

    Perfect light, perfect setting, and perfect subject composition usually leads to a great photo. Even simple equipment can acquire a special photo in those conditions. However, how photo equipment performs under "stress" when light, subject matter and setting do not cooperate separates high quality from the rest. This lens is just that: an exceptional zoom lens is true to form when everything is just rights, and works hard for you when everything is not. It is fast to zoom and focus, easy to use hand held (nice balance/weight distribution), produces high quality photos at high ISO and is rugged. The attached photos are not my best by no means, but they were taken at an ISO of 1600, 15 rows up from the ice through the glass for one and protective netting for the other at f 2.8 and 4.0 respectively. It's a work horse lens covering a very useful range (70-200mm) for sports and just out and about.

    Great Lens

    By 

    from Bluffton, SC

    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens:

    I own the original version of the 70-200mm telephoto lens and use it with a D810. About all I can say is that it is an incredible lens. I take photos of wild life at various distances with VR on or off and the results are amazing. Zooming in during post edit can bring out perfect eyes, strands of fir/feathers, perfect patterns on butterfly wings, etc. I can't imagine that the second version of this lens can possibly be better. This is a great piece of glass and is well worth the money.
