Nikon AF-S 70200mm f/2.8G ED VR

This first-gen­er­a­tion con­stant-aper­ture tele­photo zoom is per­fect for por­traits, sports and wildlife

The Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR is the first gen­er­a­tion of a now-clas­sic tele­photo zoom. Thanks to the wide max­i­mum aper­ture and ver­sa­tile fo­cal length it can adapt to a num­ber of pho­to­graphic styles, from ac­tion to wildlife.

The lens was re­leased in 2003. At that time there were no full-frame Nikons, but plenty of DX op­tions. As these mod­els were suited to a fast burst rate, the 70-200mm f/2.8G matched them per­fectly. The lens is weather-sealed, mean­ing it can sur­vive out­side in rain, wind and dusty con­di­tions. Vi­bra­tion Re­duc­tion makes slower shut­ter speeds pos­si­ble, and the fast max­i­mum aper­ture keeps the fo­cus speed rapid. Five Ex­tra-low Dis­per­sion glass el­e­ments keep chro­matic aber­ra­tion to a min­i­mum.

It’s telling that it took six years for this lens to be re­placed (see page 98), the main al­ter­ation be­ing a new ver­sion of the VR sys­tem.
