A lightweight, high performance telephoto zoom - Nikon 70-200mm f4G ED VR
Weighing in at just 850 grams and measuring just 7 inches long the Nikon 70-200mm f4G ED VR is a surprisingly compact and lightweight telephoto zoom lens, a perfect option for the traveling sports and wildlife photographer. Producing edge to edge sharpness on both DX and FX format Nikon cameras, this lens is a valuable for any Nikon DSLR kit and it won't demand too much space.
Long zoom range made even longer on DX cameras
The 70-200mm zoom range is favoured by sports photographers that are free to move around a little. It offers just enough zoom to catch all the action, but not leave you immobile for long periods of time. Also compatible with smaller DX Nikon cameras, this lens offers a very handy 105-300mm equivalent zoom, easily able to zoom across a field or onto a theatre stage.
Constant f4 aperture & VR stabiliser - sharp, blur-free images
A viable handheld option, the 70-200mm has a constant f4 aperture allowing you to shoot at faster shutter speeds throughout the entire zoom range. This feature negates the need for the use of a tripod in most circumstances, leaving you free and easy to move around and continue shooting. It also aides in the sharp capture of fast moving subjects. Handheld shooting is also on offer when the light gets a little dimmer with this sort of maximum aperture, without your images being ruined by blur.
To go with this bright aperture Nikon have included it's excellent Vibration reduction stabiliser to reduce camera shake. This stabiliser allows you to shoot up to 4 stops slower than otherwise possible, in circumstances when the light gets increasingly low.
Constructed for excellence
To keep this lens so small yet still so high in image quality Nikon have employed some of its best optical advancements. The optical makeup includes 2 ED glass elements which promise sharp images and decreased chromatic aberration. For the reduction of internal reflections, ghosting and flare Nikon have used Nano crystal coating as well as super integrated coating.
From a performance standpoint there is the Silent Wave Motor that drives the autofocus. Accurate, fast and quiet autofocus that is essential for sports and wildlife with a smoothness that will be appreciated by anyone shooting video.
