Nikon’s new AF-S 70-200mm f/4 VR zoom is smaller, lighter, and more affordable. The 70-200mm f/4 is only 7-inches in length (down from 8.5in), 850g in weight (down from 1470g), and $1,400 in price (down from $2,400).
The lens features a new Vibration Reduction (VR) system that offers up to a claimed 5 stops of image stabilization.
AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR primary features :
- A 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens compatible with the FX format that offers consistently superior rendering with focusing from infinity to close-up.
- Built-in vibration reduction (VR) offering camera shake compensation equivalent to a five-step increase in shutter speed for effective hand-held shooting in a variety of situations.
- Nano Crystal Coat, which effectively prevents the internal reflections that cause ghost and flare.
- A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for extremely quiet autofocusing.
- Equipped with two focus modes: A/M (autofocus with manual override) and M (manual focus).
- Macro photography possible with a closest focusing distance of 1 m.
- Smaller and lighter than Nikon’s previous 70-200mm lens, yet still capable of the superior image quality, performance, and overall quality expected of a NIKKOR lens.
- Autofocus supported when a teleconverter offering 2x magnification is used with the lens on a D4, D800, D800E, or D600 offering f/8 support.
