When it comes to unrivalled optical excellence and versatility, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm*1 f/2.8E FL ED VR knows no bounds. Its lightweight design stems from advanced NIKKOR optics housed in magnesium-alloy, allowing for agile shooting in diverse situations from sports, wildlife, fashion, portraits to everyday subjects. Geared for creative control, it boasts a groundbreaking Vibration Reduction system providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops*2 faster in NORMAL mode. With a maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout its entire focal range, improved autofocus and enhanced tracking performance, this extraordinary fast telephoto zoom lens is the definitive choice for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Capture phenomenal stills and videos in stunning high-resolution with the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR. A single fluorite lens element renders excellent imagery with superb chromatic aberration correction performance, while a High-Refractive Index (HRI) lens element effectively corrects curvature of field and spherical aberration for exceptional clarity. Six Extra-low Dispersion glass elements ensure outstanding contrast and colour rendering. The Nano Crystal Coat also works to minimize ghosting and flare effects for unsurpassed image quality.
Designed for movement, the Vibration Reduction (VR) system of the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR delivers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops*2 faster in NORMAL mode for steadier shots during handheld shooting. Its Vibration Reduction (VR) ‘SPORT’ mode also provides a stable viewfinder image even when tracking randomly moving subjects during high-speed continuous shooting, which is especially effective when shooting sporting events.
With a minimum focusing distance of 1.1m, this remarkable lens brings you nearer to your subjects with absolute focus and precision. However, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR isn’t just about getting closer. With a focal length of up to 200mm and maximum reproduction ratio of 0.21x, capturing magnificent close-up shots of the smallest of subjects comes easy – even from afar.
The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR offers unmatched agility that you can always rely on. It weighs approximately 110g lighter than the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, thanks to magnesium-alloy parts and the incorporation of one fluorite and one HRI lens elements. Sealed movable parts provide anti-dust and water-drop resistant capabilities, while fluorite coating effectively repels dust, water droplets, greases or dirt, ensuring easy maintenance and reinforced durability wherever your adventures may take you.
