Nikon AF-S VR II Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm F/2.8G IF-ED Review

The Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G is a zoom lens for Nikon Digital SLR cameras. It is compact and light weight of 3.2 pounds. Others don’t consider this lightweight, though. It is also quite big due to its built. This lens has a G-type fast telephoto zoom. It comes with a vibration reduction of up to 3 stops. This vibration reduction can also be turned off if desired. With this feature, the images are spared from camera shaking or shuddering, however, it doesn’t aid in the low-light settings. The image quality it creates is razor-sharp and still can be cropped for a very pleasant close-up portrait. The bokeh is also impressive and add more drama to the subject. The auto focusing of this lens is also notable. Everyone is expecting better features and a better performance from this lens to compensate the investment made for this lens. This lens costs an arm and a leg. Somebody even said that it’s ok to sell a kidney just to buy this lens. Hopefully, photographers won’t go that far and are not that desperate. Second hand lenses are available but quality performance and durability are not guaranteed. Anyway, some are selling it due to urgent needs. This lens is one of the professional lenses of Nikon and its built, quality, speed, colors and performance as a whole seem to be well-taken cared of. The downside of this lens is its size. A bigger bag is also considered necessary to carry it around. It would be hard to carry it around the neck. Neck straps, mono and tripod are available to everyone for a more comfortable shooting adventure. There is a new version on the market that is a lot lighter that might outsell this lens due to weight, much broader focal length and focus that is as close as one foot compared to the 70-200mm’s five feet. This new version is almost half the price of this 70-200mm lens. With this lens, no ghosting can be seen, so far, even under the sun or directly to it. It has a 3D quality that makes the images really stand out. All in all, this lens really delivers. Its image quality and construction are above par. It is reliable and every shot is pretty impressive. It is definitely expensive but long-lasting, big and heavy but it is worth the purchase.
  • The Good :
    Functional, Excellent performance, Reliable
  • The Bad :
    Expensive, Heavy, Big
Our score:
5 / 5
