Exploring NIKKOR Lenses: Mongolia – AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR

For more than 4,000 years, the art of falconry has been practised by the Kazakhs in Mongolia. Most boys start learning how to hunt with eagles from as young as 13 years old. To develop a close bond with the eagle, the training process can last from three to four years.

Using the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR, Nikon professional photographer Scott A. Woodward and photography enthusiast Chantal Windley were able to get right into the action of this traditional sport and capture the majestic golden eagles in flight from a distance.

Engineered for performance, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is a versatile telephoto zoom lens that captures sharp and crisp images, from portraits to telephoto close-ups. Nano Crystal Coat is applied to the lens, therefore minimising ghosting and flare. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is also built with a Vibration Reduction (VR) system that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops*1 faster, allowing Scott to confidently shoot with the camera handheld.

The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is a great lens to have when you are travelling.

*1 Based on CIPA Standard. The value is achieved when: DX-format lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, FX-format lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, and with the zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
