Take it everywhere Lightweight, portable and highly versatile
At just 30.0 oz and a mere 7.0-in. long, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is well balanced and comfortable, even on long outings. Its f/4 fixed maximum aperture excels in low light and lets you maintain a consistent exposure while zooming, especially useful when shooting HD videos. The 70-200mm focal length range (105-300mm on DX-format cameras) has been the choice of pros for years, but for greater reach, add any of Nikon's teleconverters and achieve 1.4X, 1.7X or 2X magnification. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR even focuses as close as 3.28-ft with a maximum magnification of 0.274x, so you can capture the smallest of subjects while maintaining a comfortable working distance.
Dazzling photos and HD videos Advanced features for exceptional results
Optimized for capturing high-quality stills and HD videos on both FX- and DX-format cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR incorporates Nikon advancements in lens technology and optical design. It's our first third generation Vibration Reduction lens, which enables hand-held shooting at shutter speeds up to an unheard of 5 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Nano Crystal Coat (N) reduces ghosting and lens flare; three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements provide maximum sharpness and minimum chromatic aberration, even at f/4; and the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing with seamless manual focus override.
Cover every possibility

The telephoto to keep in your bag!
I bought this lens as a repacement for my 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lens. It is just about the same weight as the lens it replaced and 1/2 the weight of the Nikon 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens. I rented a 1.7X teleconverter, which increased the maximum focal length to 340 mm @ f/6.7 for rugby matches last weekend. I was very happy with the resuts. With the D800 the autofocus was very quick, and at f/8 the images were very good even to the corners. I also tried some hand held shots at lower light levels an...View full Review

I rented a 1.7X teleconverter, which increased the maximum focal length to 340 mm @ f/6.7 for rugby matches last weekend. I was very happy with the resuts. With the D800 the autofocus was very quick, and at f/8 the images were very good even to the corners. I also tried some hand held shots at lower light levels and found the VR was impressive with shots at 1/40th of a second at 200 mm showing very good detail. I think that this lens along with the teleconverter is a great combnation for landscape and outdoor action photography.

Just started serious photography one year ago after retirement. Upgraded from 55-300. May not keep 70-200 f/4 because it is twice as heavy. Autofocus much better, but images have only a bit better clarity. Also bought 1.4x TC, which is great. As a senior, weight has outsize importance. Tripod(lens) collar with monopod very helpful. This is a professional grade lens, which may not appeal to amateurs, especially those newer to photography.

I have recently purchased this lens and was working good. After two weeks of its purchase the Auto Focus funcion stopped working. I have made many communication with Adorama and are not taking any responsibility to fix the problem. This was purchased through web and shipped to Qatar where I am residing. I have been told by Adoram to directly contact with the manufacturers in US for fix the problem. However I contacted the same shipping company to ship the item to US and they confirmed shipping cost and re-import tax will cost me almost half of the original lens cost. Adorama is not at all helped in this. I will not recommend for purchase of such item if not living US
I've used this lens for 2 shooting sessions so far, and it's incredibly sharp!! Seems sharper than my 85/1.8D. And the maximum aperture f/4 is already tack sharp. The weight feels good with my D600. Well balanced, and definitely not too heavy at all. I can probably shoot all day long with it. Focusing was really responsive and fast. Did a quick series of bird-in-flight shots, almost every photo was in focus and sharp. VR seems great, although I haven't had a chance to test it extensively yet. Did a 1/30 @ 200mm, and it came out sharp, so I'm satisfied. Minimum focusing distance is around 1meter, which is surprisingly close. It's definitely not a macro lens, but it's a good close-up distance for my shooting style I'd say the only downside I've seen so far, is the lens hood. It's perfectly functioning, just doesn't look that cool compare to the 70-200 f/2.8G VRII, or 24-70 f/2.8. I'd like that bayonet lens hood instead of the circular ones.
Clear, sharp images, fast autofocus, a professional's lens.
Optically, this lens is a wonder. Image quality is essentially perfect, the VR makes hand holding a reasonable option for this large lens, and focus is instantaneous. Nevertheless, with a heavy heart, I ended up returning the lens and buying the f4 because the f2.8 was just too heavy and cumbersome for travel photography, my primary intended use for the lens. Also, I had to return a couple of used f2.8 lenses that I tried before I ordered the new one because they mounted loosely on my D800. The new one did not have the problem.
I found the auto focus to be very fast and accurate, loving the VR. The perfect portrait lens!
I traded gear, didn't get much. Used the credit to buy this lens. Got a demo lens, Nikon 70-200mm 2.8. Shipped to me, no foot, no manual, no uv filter. No box, but I can live without the box. Looking at what I traded them, they will make out fine. It was a lot of old SD Video gear, once worth thousands, not now, but the Nikon D300 with two good lenses will get them more than they gave me. I have no paper or digital record of a warranty. As far as the lens goes, it's awesome, wanted it for a long time. When I contacted them the were nice and are sending me a foot.
So far used only for family poartraits, and it performed beyond my expectations. Focus is lightning fast. For some people it might be little heavy but it balances pretty nicely in my hands.
A very good portrait lens. Ideal for full body shot with creamy bokeh. Sharp edge to edge.
The 70-200 along with the 24-70 is in my bag at all times. This is my go-to lens in a variety of situations. The VR II has significantly improved handheld shots. Awesome lens!
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.
