Introducing the newest addition to Nikon's compact high-performance f/4 fixed aperture zoom lenses, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR. Inspired by today's versatile HD-SLR shooters, it strikes an ideal balance between exceptional optics, advanced lens technologies, including Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization providing 4.0 stops of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture.—and a remarkably compact, lightweight design. Whether you shoot with an FX- or DX-format camera, handheld or tripod-mounted, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR delivers the serious telephoto zoom performance you've been seeking.

Lightweight, portable and highly versatile

At just 30.0 oz and a mere 7.0-in. long, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is well balanced and comfortable, even on long outings. Its f/4 fixed maximum aperture excels in low light and lets you maintain a consistent exposure while zooming, especially useful when shooting HD videos. The 70-200mm focal length range (105-300mm on DX-format cameras) has been the choice of pros for years, but for greater reach, add any of Nikon's teleconverters and achieve 1.4X, 1.7X or 2X magnification. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR even focuses as close as 3.28-ft with a maximum magnification of 0.274x, so you can capture the smallest of subjects while maintaining a comfortable working distance.

Advanced features for exceptional results

Optimized for capturing high-quality stills and HD videos on both FX- and DX-format cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR incorporates Nikon advancements in lens technology and optical design. It's our first third generation Vibration Reduction lens, which enables hand-held shooting at shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Nano Crystal Coat (N) reduces ghosting and lens flare; three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements provide maximum sharpness and minimum chromatic aberration, even at f/4; and the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing with seamless manual focus override.

Build an exceptional f/4 zoom system

The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR brings the telephoto zoom range to Nikon's high-performance f/4 fixed aperture zoom lenses. Pair it with either the ultra-wide-angle to standard AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4F ED VR or the wide-angle to telephoto AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR, and you'll be able to cover an extremely broad focal length range with f/4 speed, superior image quality and a compact, lightweight lens system.

Vibration Reduction

A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

Silent Wave Motor

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.

M/A

Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

Nano Crystal Coat

An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

Super Integrated Coating

Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

IF Lens

A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Image quality is very good overall but this Nikon isn't one of the sharpest lenses in the group, especially at mid-range zoom settings. Image quality is very good overall but this Nikon isn't one of the sharpest lenses in the group, especially at mid-range zoom settings.

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is the company's most affordable telephoto lens for full-frame users who don't want to pay the substantial price premium for Nikon's faster f/2.8 zoom.

LensTip.com

If you only compare the list of pros and cons you can already say that the Nikkor AF-S 70–200 mm f/4.0G ED VR is a very well-made lens indeed. The only thing that we don’t like is its price.

ePHOTOzine

Those looking for similar optical performance to Nikon's top of the range 70-200mm, but without quite as much weight, or expense will love this new f/4 variant. It delivers sharp, contrasty images, focuses fast and isn't so heavy that you'd regret packing it in your camera bag.

Practical Photography

Despite not having an aperture of f/2.8, this would still be our pick of 70-200mm lenses thanks to its outstanding image quality.

Nikon has revealed a new telephoto zoom lens featuring 'next generation VR technology that boasts up to five stops of image stabilisation.

Handling and features This telephoto zoom lens from Nikon is something Nikon users have been crying out for, for years. It covers the popular 70-200m range with a constant maximum aperture of f/4, which means this lens is considerably lighter weight than its f/2.8 equivalent.

Imaging Resource

There is a lot to like about the Nikon 70-200mm ƒ/4G ED VR AF-S, not the least of which is its small profile and light weight. Nikon users have long looked at Canon with longing for a smaller version of the 70-200mm ƒ/2.8 workhorse.

I have recently changed to this f4 from the f2.8 VR!! , which was an incredible lens but so heavy, that it did not always make the trip with me. I reviewed the pictures I had taken with the f2.8 over the years and could not find an instance when I had used f2.8, so decided to swap it for the f4,...

This is a great lens. Yes the latest 70-300 FX is an excellent lens and very sharp, but after a while you feel there is something lacking, especially on a high resolution camera. This lens is sharp across the board with better contrast and is a cut above the 70-300, which is still a very good lens.

I like many others looked at the 70-200 F2.8 for use on my D750 but in the end went for the F4 because it gets better all round reviews for its glass, and I was not disappointed! Its very quick, even in the dark, and the pictures come out very sharp, I did some photography in a dark theatre, and...

I've been using it mainly for indoor stage performances under 'artificial' lighting, and only sometimes miss the extra stop that an f/2.8 lens provides. It is capable of producing very sharp images under difficult lighting. Makes pleasing pictures even with strong back lighting in the frame.

This lens produces stunning images that are extremely sharp and with great contrast. The VR is highly effective. As I already owned the much older 80-200mm f2.8 IF ED (non tripod mount) pro model I was a little concerned at the use of plastic on the body but I needn't have worried.

I spent a long time researching this lens before I bought it from Wex and I was not disappointed . I even tried a Nikon 70-200mm F2.8 but that lens was too heavy for me (Im over 60). The Nikon 70-200mm F4 was just perfect for me and handled even better on my Nikon D600 than I had hoped.

Love this lens! Had originally purchased the f2.8, but obviously the cost was much higher. Wasn't really as overwhelmed as people are so for the price, returned it and went with this one instead! Fallen in love with it, great quality and very versatile lens, especially for the price. My customers are also very happy with their photos, perfect result for us all!

I bought this lens in preference to the f2.8 version simply because it is much lighter, and I have other lenses for larger-aperture shooting. I have used it for horse-photography and the results have been excellent although, in that situation, many shots need to be taken, to ensure a good selection in perfect focus.

I received this lens from Camerworld yesterday; it's so light I cannot believe it! Optics are great with fast and accurate focus even in dull light (on a D800e). The vibration control is excellent, and it has a sensible-shaped hood. A lens which approaches my 50mm D f1:1.4 for picture quality - and it seems almost as light.
