Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II Lens

Product Summary


A fast f/2 prime 200mm telephoto lens from Nikkor, ideal for shooting wildlife, landscapes, and using even in everyday shooting needs, the AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II is a versatile lens to have if you have the right budget. Even professionals will feel the pinch when the price of $6000 is mentioned to them so it is needless to mention that amateurs will certainly feel this is something out of their reach.

The AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II offers Nikon’s Vibration Reduction II technology which loosely translates to a slower shutter speed of up to four stops when hand holding your DSLR. the presence of Nikon’s A/M technology means it is all the more easier to do precise manual focusing simply by turning the focusing ring even when the auto-focusing is engaged.

Internal Focusing in the lens means the focusing always is done internally and nothing on the exterior moves, leading to a static barrel length. Nikon’s proprietary Silent Wave Motor technology makes for ultra-silent focusing. The presence of ED and Nano crystal elements means reduced flares and ghosts and better color saturation.

There are a total of 13 lens elements arranged in 9 groups including 3 ED elements and 1 Super ED elements. The lens diaphragm is made of 9 blades. The lens takes a filter of size 52mm and weighs a hefty 2.930 Kilos. It ships with a lens hood, a front cap, a rear cap, a soft case and a 52mm screw-on NC filter. Available at Amazon | Adorama | B&H
