  • Telephoto Zoom Lens
  • Constant f/2.8 Maximum Aperture
  • Weather-sealed
  • Up to 4.0 stops of VR
  • Lens of choice for low-light, sports, wildlife, concerts, weddings, portraits and everyday shooting
  • New optical formula achieves jaw-dropping image quality, even in trying conditions
  • Improved AF performance, weather sealing and handling
  • Fast telephoto zoom lens for low-light, sports, wildlife, concerts, weddings, portraits and everyday shooting.
  • Cutting-edge optics for maximum definition:
  • The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR produces images that have a life of their own. Six ED glass elements, Fluorite (FL) and High Refractive (HRI) lens elements and Nano Crystal Coat (N) all but eliminate distortion and glare and maximize contrast and sharpness, even in difficult backlit situations. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture produces beautiful, creamy background blur, and the masterful design and construction ensures this lens will be a legend.
  • Innovative controls and design for working pros:
  • The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR has four focus function buttons right on the lens barrel, perfect for engaging autofocus or AF Lock*. The zoom and focus rings have reversed positions for more comfortable, stable zooming. Its magnesium alloy barrel, High Refractive Index (HRI) lens element and lightweight Fluorite (Fl) element located near the front of the optical group keep the lens evenly balanced. The tripod collar ring spins on ball bearings for smooth transitions between horizontal and vertical shooting.
  • Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture:
  • Shoot with the aperture wide open at f/2.8 across the entire zoom range?from 70mm to 200mm?for sharp, bright images with smooth, creamy background blur. Close focus has been improved from 4.6 feet (1.4m) to approx. 3.6 feet (1.1m), allowing for stunning close-up portraits. Combined with a high-ISO Nikon DSLR,the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR opens new possibilities for capturing indoor sports, wildlife at dusk and dawn, wedding receptions and so much more.
  • Even more weather-sealed and rugged design:
  • You don't get a second chance to capture the decisive moment, and weather conditions rarely cooperate. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is designed for exactly these moments. An all new weather-sealing design ensures you can keep shooting through nearly any condition. Every movable part of the lens barrel?nine parts in all?are extensively sealed for dust and water drop resistance. Additionally, the front lens element is coated with Nikon's non-stick Fluorine coat, resisting dirt, fingerprints and smudges.
  • Up to 4.0 stops of image stabilization:
  • Camera movement during exposure robs sharpness. It's that simple. Nikon's VR image stabilization has ben enhanced from 3.5 stops to up to 4.0 stops**, a must-have feature when working hand-held, on a monopod or even a tripod. A specialized Sports Mode is optimized for camera pans and fast-action sports, and the Tripod Mode eliminates the subtle ground vibrations that are constantly passing through a tripod or monopod. Capture subjects with outstanding sharpness, even in low light.
  • Blazing fast, consistent acquisition:
  • During high-speed continuous shooting with a fast DSLR like D5 or D500, the lens' electromagnetic diaphragm syncs with the camera shutter for remarkably consistent exposure, even with a teleconverter. AF tracking is improved, too, especially for notoriously difficult subjects: those with unpredictable or very slow movement, those moving at random speeds and those approaching the camera at high speed. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) powers ultra-fast, near-silent internal focusing (IF) with no breathing effect across the entire zoom range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome Finally broke down and traded my beloved 70-200 f/2.8 VR2 for the new version. Only took one day to get use to the zoom ring placement. The improvement in sharpness and color rendition was worth the steep price. I highly recommend the new "E" version for anyone interested in the best. Great companion for my D850.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens I recently got back into photography and decided to spend the money on quality equipment. After much research, I recently purchased the D850 with the F/2.8 14-24mm, 24-70mm and this lens. While the lens is a bit heavy, the results are outstanding. The pictures are very crisp, the focus is extremely fast and the f/2.8 allows for creativity. Obviously, not cheap but the photos are priceless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from top of the line lens This is a sharp yet gentle, fast and smooth wonderful quality lens that is ideal for portraits, wildlife, sports and special events. Definitely a game changer when it comes to portraits not only wild life. This is a smart lens that you can trust in tricky situations comes with an outstanding low light performance. A "must have" top of the line lens for those who want top of the line image quality no matter what the situation is, no matter what you are shooting this is a lens to trust at 100% on any day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and Fast! Bought this lens a couple of months ago as a replacement for my old VRII. It's so much sharper, faster at focusing and I love the zoom ring being at the front. An amazing improvement on the previous model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unparalleled Sharpness Nikon's latest version of its 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lens is one of the sharpest of all the many Niikkor lenses I own. The images captured with this lens appear to be absolutely lifelike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning in all ways "Wow! I upgraded from the original 70-200 f2.8 VR to this lens having skipped the VR2 version. It took me a while to decide but after 10 years with my existing lens, I justified the purchase. The service at Henry's was excellent as we discussed filter options and the features of the lens, many of which I knew very well through web research but discovered more in talking to the staff. I can't encourage people enough who were in my position of wondering if the upgrade was worth it or not to jump in and DO IT. The auto focus is so fast, it reminds me of prime lens performance like a 300mm 2.8. It's just instantaneous. I like the manual focus being closer to the camera body as there's more stability overall this way and I find that I'm shooting more in M/A now compared to the previous lens when I shot mainly in A/M. The VR is really a tripod in a lens! Unreal. I took a picture of a street side at 200mm which was 150 feet away with 6mm lettering, handheld. The sharpness blew me away. And finally the images. When loaded in Lightroom in library mode against the original lens, the difference is instantly clear. Bokeh, well, just beautiful. Get this lens - NOW. You'll love it and it will re-energize your passion for photography."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It will never disappoint you or let you down In a nutshell, the greatest 70-200 lens ever made. I tired to find something wrong it, but I really ailed. Thank you Nikon for making sure I don't miss the shot when I'm travelling, and making me no longer hesitant about shooting wide open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drop-Dead Sharp; Killer Fast I've had this lens most of 10 months; mated to a D750. It has worked flawlessly; meeting its sales literature in all material respects. It is steeply priced; thus difficult for a relative novice to justify without a few years of experience to warrant the expense. That said, it IS a lens that can make one a better photographer. You can’t spend that much without a commitment to improve…. And I think I have. Its focus speed is astounding. Properly used, it’ll “catch” movement and freeze it solid. Mounted on the camera, it’s a two-handed operation. The “remote” focus buttons [4], however, make the process easy and comfortable. It’s a well-sealed and reasonably bomb proof [not stupid-proof] lens that has delivered quality 100% of the time. Presently, it lacks only a better photographer on the other end. While a tad heavy and honestly too spendy…… has been very much worth the expense. Almost universally, it is the first lens on my camera for portraiture, sports, and wildlife…….. If you can…… get it.
