The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8G ED VR II lens offers re-designed optics for exceptional image quality and increased Vibration Reduction capability. The VRII technology enables photographers to shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would otherwise be possible (as determined by Nikon performance tests). The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8G ED VR II lens can be used in one of two modes: Normal for everyday shooting and Active, which minimises the vibration experienced when shooting aircraft for example. Both the Normal and the Active modes offer a stable viewfinder image, essential for making focus point acquisition and framing far more comfortable and precise. More

Quality shines through
By Mister Electron
from East Yorkshire
High image quality, great build quality and works very well with a suitable teleconverter. Used it recently with 1.4x to photograph the Tour De Yorkshire.It is expensive, but better value if you can pick it up on offer.

Great versatile walkabout lens
Excellent bit of glass
By Mike P
I'm not a professional photographer and i don't pretend to be all knowledgeable in the manufacture and construction of lenses. what i do like is consistency in quality and this lens gives it. Yes it may be on the heavy side but the use of tripods and monopods overcome this irritation. this lens is a quality item that gives consistently good results. need i say more.
This lens is branded with Nikon's Nano Crystal Coating (N), and this certainly doesn't fail to deliver on optical quality. The autofocus is fast and sharp, ideal for wildlife and sports photographers, whilst also being versatile in a portrait style too. I was considering the Nikon 70-300mm, however was convinced to get the f2.8 70-200mm as quality was higher on my list than focal length. I am shooting on a high-end DX body, and cannot fault this lens in any way. The only thing I can put it down on would be weight, but then again, I opted for the f2.8 version over the f4! Having said that, you soon become accustomed with the weight. The first outing I used this lens on was at an air show, and was thoroughly impressed, no regrets.
I would highly recommend this lens, but

Use for general photography, but think twice about taking it with me if I have any distance to walk, will always see if lighter lens will do the job

Reliable and trustworthy lens
from Manchester (UK)
I've been using this Nikon 70-200mm f2.8G VR ii since I bought it in mid August 2014. Having tried on shooting portraits and wildlife (moderate degree), I know this lens will be always with me. When I want to carry a light bag, I sometimes interchange my 24-70mm f2.8G with 50mm f1.8, but this 70-200mm is always in my bag. I like the fast autofocus and especially the faultless sharpness of images. Although I have a 85mm f1.8 for portraits, I've found myself actually using this 70-200mm more comfortably for portraits, and I've even tried it for micro-shooting with very impressive results. The zooming is very smooth, manual focus is precise and easy to handle with just one finger. The weight is a bit heavy, but after a little while I've got used to it, and I prefer hand hold for flexibility. The VR ii is excellent. In my view, one may consider alternative choices among many different lenses for different purposes, but this 70-200mm doesn't need any more thinking, you just find its capability in almost all occasions.

Lightening fast focus and improved VR
About Me Professional
After putting off an upgrade from the previous VR version for years, I now wish Id made the jump sooner. Overall the optics are pin sharp with little distortion, the focus is incredibly quick and accurate, and the VR a big leap over the old model.The position of the zoom/focus bands has been tweaked so its more comfortable and faster to use in anger.
worth the money and the weight
I was a bit put off at first by the weight of it and the fact it is the lens not the camera that fits on the tripod. But the results make it all worth while. Fabulous pin-sharp images - even hand held. Definitely a good investment if you are serious about your photography
