NIKON 70-200MM 2.8 VR LENS II
The Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G AF-S VR II Nikkor ED-IF is a fast telephoto zoom lens optimized for full-frame Nikon DSLRs. With a continuous wide aperture of f/2.8, the latest version of Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR II) system, quiet autofocus, and updated lens coating technologies, this next-generation lens is ideal for professional photographers and videographers. It will work with both film and digital Nikon cameras, and is compatible with both FX (full-frame) and DX (APS sensor) DSLRs. With this lens, Nikon has now updated its entire pro zoom lineup, which includes the AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED and AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED models, with pro-level coverage from 14-200mm focal lengths with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture.
What you should know about this lens:
• Outstanding lens elements: The 70-200mm f/2.8 G AF-S VR II features 7 ED (Extra-low dispersion) elements to provide outstanding sharpness and accurate color rendering, and minimizing chromatic aberration at all apertures. A Nano Crystal Coat promotes even greater clarity by reducing ghosting and flare. Finally, Nikon's proprietary Super Integrated Coating (SIC) also reduces flare and improves light transmission and color accuracy.
• Second-Gen image stabilization: The lens uses Nikon VR II vibration reduction, which promotes handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower. It has two modes: Normal (reduces ordinary camera shake and panning) and Active (reduces extreme camera shake including shooting from a moving vehicle).
• Great Bokeh: A rounded 9-blade diaphragm renders out of focus areas of the image more naturally and shows rounded specular highlights.
• Quiet and fast AF: Autofocus is powered by the exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM). Focus is fast, accurate, and quiet, making this an ideal lens for HD video as well as still photography. The focus is accomplished internally, so the length of the lens doesn't change while focusing. Minimum focus is 4.5 feet. Manual focus override is available.
