More about the Nikon 70-200mm f/4 VR telezoom lens
The Nikon 70-200mm f/4 VR telezoom lens is a formidable tool in the hands of a full frame user. Designed for 35mm format DSLR cameras, this lens with an aperture of f/4 across its focal length makes it possible for both portrait and wild life photographers to shoot their hearts content with razor sharp clarity and beautiful detail. This G lens is also the first of its kind that features Nikon’s third generation of Image Stabilization systems that effectively translates into 5 stops of image stabilization. For hand held shooting out in the wild or even in the urban settings, 5 stops of image stabilization is the maximum that one can enjoy from Nikon’s stable.
The constant f/4 aperture
The f/4 aperture combining with the 5 stops Image stabilization ensures that even in low light conditions the photographers can get razor sharp images by reducing the shutter speed and letting in more light than otherwise possible.
70-200mm is a great focal length range or a diverse number of photographers. Although users have been known to experiment and use lenses of different focal length for different needs really this lens can be perfect for the purpose of wedding, portraits and wildlife shots. The focal length of 70mm rules out the effectiveness of the lens as a landscape lens as it is too long for that.
Construction and additional features
Constructed from 20 elements and arranged n 14 groups the Nikon 70-200mm f/4 VR telezoom is a lens that is a dream come true for a portrait and wild life photographer. AF system is ultra-quiet and features Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology. The lens can be set into two different focusing modes one is the Manual focusing mode and the other is the Auto-focus with manual over ride mode. This allows the user to switch to manual focusing without having to tweak anything even while the lens is trying to auto-focus. This is the equivalent of Canon’s Full-time Manual focusing (FTM).
Nano crystal coating
The lens features Nikon’s state of the art Nano crystal coating which reduces the possibility of ghosting and flaring. For full frame DSLR’s this is a major issue and that means an added bonus for full frame users.
The lens has a comparable performance to a Nikon f/2.8 300mm and really at less weight and price this lens is a better option for a full frame user compared to some of the pricier Nikkor lenses out there. Unless of course you’re looking for an insanely high tele zoom lens in which case of course this lens would be unsuitable, the 70-200mm should be your go to lens for most wild life photography and even a major chunk of portrait photography requirements.
