Description

From there, everything is a little tougher to differentiate, as Nikon doesn’t clearly provide deep level specifications. For instance, it seems clear to me that the VR system is quite different, but Nikon doesn’t speak to that in its marketing literature. I’ll try to do what I can with that in the performance section. Other lens attributes you’ll want to know about include the usual 9-blade aperture diaphragm, a 77mm front filter thread, a positionable and removable tripod collar, and a supplied lens hood (HB-78), plus a nice zip-up lens case (CL-M2). The acronym brigade just doesn’t get any shorter these days, does it? Let’s start with all those letters:

  • AF-S means internal focus using a silent wave motor. One thing that a lot of Nikon users don’t understand is that there are many variations on these motors, and focus speed varies quite a bit from the least capable to the most.
  • E means that the lens uses an electronic activation of the the aperture (as opposed to mechanical). You need a D3100 or later, D5000 or later, D7000 or later, Df, D3s, D4, D4s, D5, D300s, D500, D600, D610, D700, D750, D800, or D810 body to get full compatibility with an E lens.
  • FL indicates that the lens has a lightweight Fluorite element in the design.
  • ED indicates that extra-low dispersion glass is used in the lens (six ED elements)
  • VR refers to Nikon’s Vibration Reduction system.

Nikon spews a bunch of additional acronyms for the 70-200mm f/2.8E on their page for the lens (HRI, IF, M/A, N, and SIC). HRI is another term used for a certain type of glass that is used, in this case High Refractive Index. N and SIC are the shortcuts for Nano and Super Integrated Coatings, which reduce internal lens reflections and optimize the passthrough of light. M/A refers to the fact that you can override autofocus with the manual focus ring at any time (if the lens is set that way).

A dream lens.

For years, Nikon’s 70-200 f/2.8 lens has been the benchmark for fast telephoto zoom lenses, unrivaled for low-light, sports, wildlife, concerts, weddings, portraits and everyday shooting. This new version takes that legendary performance to the next level with the same jaw-dropping image quality that has made it a prized lens of pros and serious hobbyists alike. Whether you’re shooting a DX DSLR like the D500 or an FX powerhouse like the D5, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR will take you to thrilling new heights

Images that astound

Cutting-edge optics for maximum definition.

The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR produces images that have a life of their own. Six ED glass elements, Fluorite (FL) and High Refractive (HRI) lens elements and Nano Crystal Coat (N) all but eliminate distortion and glare and maximize contrast and sharpness, even in difficult backlit situations. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture produces beautiful, creamy background blur, and the masterful design and construction ensures this lens will be a legend.

Enhanced handling

Innovative controls and design for working pros.

The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR has four focus function buttons right on the lens barrel, perfect for engaging autofocus or AF Lock*. The zoom and focus rings have reversed positions for more comfortable, stable zooming. Its magnesium alloy barrel, High Refractive Index (HRI) lens element and lightweight Fluorite (Fl) element located near the front of the optical group keep the lens evenly balanced. The tripod collar ring spins on ball bearings for smooth transitions between horizontal and vertical shooting.

Brilliant in low light

Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture.

Shoot with the aperture wide open at f/2.8 across the entire zoom range—from 70mm to 200mm—for sharp, bright images with smooth, creamy background blur. Close focus has been improved from 4.6 feet (1.4m) to approx. 3.6 feet (1.1m), allowing for stunning close-up portraits. Combined with a high-ISO Nikon DSLR,the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR opens new possibilities for capturing indoor sports, wildlife at dusk and dawn, wedding receptions and so much more.

Built for the field

Even more weather-sealed and rugged design.

You don’t get a second chance to capture the decisive moment, and weather conditions rarely cooperate. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is designed for exactly these moments. An all new weather-sealing design ensures you can keep shooting through nearly any condition. Every movable part of the lens barrel—nine parts in all—are extensively sealed for dust and water drop resistance. Additionally, the front lens element is coated with Nikon’s non-stick Fluorine coat, resisting dirt, fingerprints and smudges.

Sharp shooter

Up to ~4.0 stops of image stabilization.

Camera movement during exposure robs sharpness. It’s that simple. Nikon’s VR image stabilization has ben enhanced from 3.5 stops to up to ~4.0 stops**, a must-have feature when working handheld, on a monopod or even a tripod. A specialized Sports Mode is optimized for camera pans and fast-action sports, and the Tripod Mode eliminates the subtle ground vibrations that are constantly passing through a tripod or monopod. Capture subjects with outstanding sharpness, even in low light.

Flawless focus

Blazing fast, consistent acquisition.

During high-speed continuous shooting with a fast DSLR like D5 or D500, the lens’ electromagnetic diaphragm syncs with the camera shutter for remarkably consistent exposure, even with a teleconverter. AF tracking is improved, too, especially for notoriously difficult subjects: those with unpredictable or very slow movement, those moving at random speeds and those approaching the camera at high speed. Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) powers ultra-fast, near-silent internal focusing (IF) with no breathing effect across the entire zoom range.

  • Minimum Focus Distance-3.6ft.(1.1m)
  • Focus distance indicator- 1.1 m to ∞
  • Accepts Filter Type:Screw-on
  • Diaphragm blades: 9. Format : FX/35mm. Minimum Aperture : f/ 22

    Everyone complains about the change in the focusing ring but honestly, you can get used to it in a few minutes of using it and with the tripod attachment resting on your palm as you use the camera, the flipped focusing system feels more natural. This lens is sharp, fast, and capable of whatever you use it for. I use is on both the Nikon D750 and D7200 and both work perfectly with it. Highly recommend but I know the price of it is pretty scary, but as the updated versions of the holy trinity are rolling out. You won’t need any upgrade for the next 7-10 years with this purchase. A great investment in my opinion.
