The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm1 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 (VR) system providing an effective equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster in NORMAL mode. With a maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout its entire focal range, improved autofocus (AF) and enhanced tracking performance, this extraordinarily fast telephoto zoom lens is the definitive choice for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Breathtaking images that truly stand out
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 minimise ghosting and flare effects for unsurpassed image quality.
Engineered for stability
Designed for movement, the 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 stops2 faster in NORMAL mode for steadier shots during handheld shooting. Its VR SPORT mode also provides a stable viewfinder image even when tracking randomly moving subjects during high-speed continuous shooting – especially effective when shooting sporting events.
For every frame that matters
Never miss a moment with the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR. An improved AF tracking performance, along with the incorporation of an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, enables you to achieve effective subject tracking and greater precise auto exposure control with ease, even during high-speed continuous shooting.
Majestic at any distance
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 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR isn’t just about being 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.
