Heavyweight Champion of the World!!!

Brian, B&H Photo
25 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is the "Mohammad Ali" of portraits. I can shoot with it in the middle of NYC Times Square and the background just blurs into a liquid swirl. Your photos will be so sharp they might cut you. The lens is indeed HEAVY and very LARGE! It is definitely not a lens to buy if you want to be inconspicuous.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Best glass I ever owned.

Pieria, B&H Photo
9 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I have owned almost most of the pro glass that nikon offers. From the holly trinity, 300 2.8 vr , 400 2.8 vr, and this lens is just amazing. Not to heavy for me , I currently own the 400 2.8 vr also, is just out of this world. The focal length for what I used it for is just perfect , and that is for portraits of my 2 year old, to football at high school games. Bokeh is just buttery smooth, the lens wide open is razor sharp, and it takes converters with no problem.

200 2

Nam, B&H Photo
3 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Bought the 200 2 to take pictures of my son's fencing tournament. As usual, the tournaments are located in high school gymn and/or cafeteria and the lighting is horrible. The 200 2 comes through beautifully. Focus is fast, very sharp. Th lens handles sport better than the 85 1.4. A bit on the heavy side so you need a tripod for extended use. I am used to shooting with the 70-200 2.8, the 80-400 VR, the Sigma 150-500 hand holding.

Nikon's Best

Gman, B&H Photo
14 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I have many of the Best Primes Nikon makes but for whatever reason I thought the 200/2 would fall into that category of lens that spend too much time on the shelf, the uses were too limited. I was wrong, this has quickly become my favorite lens. So much so that it will be my main lens w/800e on a trip to see the gorillas next month. Great lens even with the weight and stubby attitude. I should have bought this one years ago.

unbelievable....

dp, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm not saying anything new when I say this lens is just a phenomenal piece of glass...my god, you read about speed, AF accuracy, btu until you try it, you have no idea what they are talking about. This is in a whole different category than the 14-24 f2.8, and the rest of it. It's everything you heard about and then some. My only cons are the potential for scratches on the front element, you have to leave to hood on, which takes up a lot of space, and the weight.
