The winners will still be announced on April 16, 2020, but the in-person awards show and festival have been canceled due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.

  • +

    Superb build quality with dust and moisture sealing, Excellent image quality on DX format, Effective optical image stabilization, Excellent autofocus with manual override and AF stop buttons

  • -

    Less impressive performance on FX format - marred by soft corners and vignetting, Somewhat susceptible to flare with direct light sources in or close to the frame, Average close-up performance, especially at wide apertures

the more i use it the more i love. the moment i press the shutter release button. i know what i going to pix....amazing lense! most of my wedding candid picture/distance shot was produce by this glass.

  • +

    sharp, fast, good color etc

  • -

    longer than my previous 80-200 AFD. so can't really fit in my old lowepro stealth reporter 300AW.

In the competitive arena of mid-range zooms, this is the Michael Schumacher. Others come close in some areas, but this is the complete package, coming out top in the fields of optical quality, handling and stabilisation. If you have a camera that this lens will fit, this is the lens to have.

  • +

    Optical quality superb, Vibration Reduction system, Good handling

  • -

    Balance on smaller bodies (minor), Low profile tripod mount may not clear some QR systems., Price, although well discounted in the ePHOTOzine shop.

For Nikon shooters, the 70-200mm lens has been the de facto pro lens, and until the version 2 of the lens came along, it was the optical king of the hill. There was always the lingering question of corner performance, and while in our review lens there are some soft corners, it's not the worst we've...

Although the Nikkor 70-200 VR is a very well-made lens and you really can’t be displeased with it, we still feel a bit unsatisfied. If you buy a professional lens for as much as 1700 $ you should expect perfect results in all categories.

    very high build quality,, splendid image quality in the frame centre,, very good image quality on the edge of the frame,, low chromatic aberration,, slight distortion,, well-corrected coma,, very low astigmatism,, negligible vignetting in the 70-130 mm range,, excellent autofocus work,, quite...

  • -

    the image quality at the maximum relative aperture in the middle of the focal lengths range should have been better,, weak performance against bright light,, a bit too high vignetting at 200 mm focal length,, not very good performance with the converter attached.

Nikon should continue producing this and sell at lower than VR2 version. Because, it is outstanding for its price. I use it on d300, so vignetting is not a big issue for me (+ I mostly shoot portraits) This is the bench mark lens for testing focus aquisition speed.

  • +

    Super sharp, Benchmark focus, killer bokeh

  • -

    Heavy, large :)

If you can afford it, stop looking and get one; there is no better 70-200 lens anywhere at any price. This might be the best short telephoto zoom ever made by anyone, and that's not hyperbole. Performs amazingly well even with 1.7X and 2X teleconverters; exceptionally sharp and consistent.

  • +

    Atonishing IQ (even with a TC), fast AF, great VR performance

  • -

    very long, weighs a ton, expensive (but you get what you pay for!)

This lens is not cheap, but it is worth every single penny. From the moment you pick it up you can feel this lens is a serious peice of glass. The hood is plastic and very easy to snap on and of. I would however recomend keeping it on at all times to protect the lens.

  • +

    Large aperture, excellent build, quick and immaculate focusing, very sharp, superb image quality, useful VR

  • -

    Heavy, especially if this is not the only lens you are carring arround

I sold my 80-200 f2.8 to buy this lens and have never regretted it. It focuses very quickly. I use it for most of my high school sports photography assignments (football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling). I shoot dark gyms and the 2.8 speed is great to have. The VR is very effective.

  • +

    Very sharp images, image stabilization works great, like the extra range over the 80-200

This lens smokes on my D90! The clarity of the images is jaw-dropping. It feels like the lens was made to go with the camera. Fast, accruate, silent focus. True to life color. Stunning action shots and portraits. Now... take the same lens and put it on my full frame D700, and I grit my teeth.
