    Some pincushion distortion. Close focus limited to 4.6 feet.

Thanks to a recent price-drop Nikon’s new lens can almost be considered a bargain at the moment, albeit an expensive bargain. Though there is very little to dislike, if I were buying this lens I would get the tripod-mounting pillar modified to improve the way that the zoom sits in my hand.

    Consistent high resolution

    Fiddly M/AF switch

Nikon’s entry into past universal 80-200mm f/2.8 lenses started back in 1978 with a manual focus, push-pull lens checking in at 4 lbs. Ten years later the autofocus model arrived sporting ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass; ’92 marked the “D” package.

Nikon has produced more than half a dozen high-speed, tele zooms since the early 1980s. The first with Vibration Reduction— the full-frame 70–200mm f/2.8 VR of 2003—was an instant classic, lauded for its high-speed autofocus, VR, and attractive styling.

Everything about this lens is amazing. The SHARPNESS! Silky smooth backgrounds. Build Quality. Those complaining about the weight or size need to buy a point & shoot. This thing is the right tool for MANY jobs!

Matched up with my D810. Wanted a quality versatile lense to match up with a quality camera. This was the ticket. Lense is heavy but manageable.

There is an interesting cut shape in the back of the lens in a black cushy material near the mount. This part essentially goes into the body when attached to the camera. It looked like a symmetrical hexagon with nice rounded edges.

  • +

    Saved a lot of money without any compromise on image quality. The lens is practically new condition except that it came in a white box with limited warranty. This is probably the millionth review that the lens is amazing and has no par in IQ.

    Pricey, but worth every penney.

Love love the lens. I have tested it on my D700 and D7000. It is so sharp and smooth. I regret that I have waited for this long to get it. It is sure heavy. I am thinking of getting a monopod to go with it.

    Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Sharp

    Expensive, Heavy

Absolutely loving this lens.. The sharpness, the constrast, the speed, you should get one to feel it. Was in a confused state whether to buy this or not, but did buy it and now there is no regret. Also, was lucky enough to buy this during the $300 rebate.

Hello all, wether you're wealthy and just scanning over a couple of quick reviews or obsessing over this lens like I did, you obviously want to know about this lens. I know that before I bought it I was constantly trying to justify the price as an aspiring photographer at the age of 15 who was lucky...

I can't rate it as excellent due to the focal breathing. Nor can I rate it average. So 4 stars is a compromise. Sorry, Nikon.

  • +

    Stunning IQ, beautifully built

  • -

    Awful focus breathing that will matter a good deal to some shooters

I have been saving for some time to buy this amazing lens! I'm so excited to get out and take photos! It is very expensive, but you have to pay for quality products.

    expensive, Heavy but worth it

14 November 2013

This lens allowed me to significant reduce the collection of lenses I had. The use of VR and ridiculous shutter speed has allowed me to take photos od indoor sports in a way that I have never been able to before.
