21 February 2014
Summary: Absolutely Awesome Lens with Enormous lens hood, 6 inches in diameter, removable or easy to removed.No Lens Cap.Crutchfield will give when available.Comes with awesome bag. Best Portrait Lens I've ever used.Tack Sharp at all apertures,Great for Sports also. Hand-held shots that I would not attempt with any other lens,VR2 system allows to take Spectacular images. No additional sharpenning is needed.
Summary: I regularly use a wide range of highly-rated lenses to shoot Judo, Swimming, Sailing, Track and Field, and Cross Country with my D4, including the Nikon 24-70mm f2.8, Tamron 24-70mm f2.8, Sigma Art 35mm f1.4, Nikon 85mm f1.4, Nikon 70-200mm f2.8, and Nikon 300mm f2.8. Occasionally I'll throw in some wide angle shots with the Nikon 16mm f2.8 fisheye (ugh!), Nikon 24mm f1.4 (only at f1.4), and Nikon 12-24mm f2.8 (mostly at f5.6).
Summary: May b i m d first person in kerala , this lense is using, m so happy with dis sharpness and quality, loved d bokeh, VR 2 is working well, so i can shoot withut tripod, m using it with nikon d3x, realy enjoying d shooting nw, i ve already 135mm f2, 85 mm 1.4 , 50mm 1.4, 105mm 2.8, 180mm, 70-200 , 2.8 ,20mm, 24mm, 16mm fish eye, 24-70, 2.8, etc.....
Summary: Here's my initial take on the Nikon Nikkor 200mm F/2G AF-S VR Lens. To start off, I bought this lens to use for low-light indoor situations. An example would be certain church presentations where the lights are dimmed down. My only minor pet peeve with this particular lens is it's rather dinky tripod mount. Again, this is a minor issue. If hand holding is a must, either grip the lens close to the front, or get a RRS compatible replacement foot for better gripping.
Summary: I'm a very passionate and serious photo enthusiast with a great appreciation for quality and fine engineering. I purchased the 200 f2 VRII about 6 months ago, partially as an additional tool for shooting indoor sports, but I have to admit a lot of it had to do with the tremendous reputation this lens
Summary: I am not a pro, but rather a passionate 'photo junkie' striving for pro like perfection in my images. Heavy, awkward, expensive, this lens is like medicine -- sometimes bitter or painful to take, but the end results -- priceless. Wide open, there isn't a lens in my cabinet that can compete with this awesome marvel crafted by the Nikon brain thrust. Natural light, low light, moon light -- nothing escapes. And the images -- pro like. At least to my 'unqualified' eyes.
Summary: After reviewing how current owners rave about this lens.......I decided to take the plunge and got one. I tested the lens and boy......ohhhhh boy!!! It is really very sharp!!!! I can't believe my eyes when I saw my test shots.....no additional sharpening is needed...it's just one SHARP LENS!!! Incredible!!! I am very happy and satisfied!
Summary: I have had this lens for a while, but just returned from Hawai'i where I used it photographing the surfers on the North Shore of Oahu. Wow! What a spectacular lens. It is one superlative work of art this lens. Although heavy and not for the faint of heart, this lens is worth carrying to any event where you want detail and fast action. When used with Nikkor teleconverter for even greater focal length it still has plenty of light to spare.
Summary: It would be impossible for me to compare the 200 VRII to lenses I have never used, but suffice it to say, you would be hard pressed to find a better piece of glass to put in your arsenal, regardless of manufacturer or price. I had recently purchased the legacy AF85 1.4, and never having owned the lens previously, was truly impressed by the image rendition for portrait work.
