Just about perfect!!!

  • Summary: If you want a super technical review with numbers and specs, don't waste your time here and go to the next review. But if you want a normal guy's opinion on his experiences with this lens, please read on. I want to start out by saying I am a brand whore when it comes to camera gear. I could read a review on a sigma lens that is the sharpest, greatest lens ever but I would still probably not buy it because it isn't Nikkor. I wish I wasn't like that, but I am.

The 70-300mm lens is great and defiantly takes better pictures than the 55-200mm and ...

  • Summary: I had done tons of research trying to decide between the 70-300mm and the 70-200mm/f4. I originally bought the nikon 70-300mm lens as an upgrade from my beloved 55-200mm kit lens. The 70-300mm lens is great and defiantly takes better pictures than the 55-200mm and focused much faster than my fathers 55-300mm but... It wasn't what I was looking for. I suggest it as an affordable upgrade from the kit lens defiantly! But I wanted something more.

Great lens no doubt about it

Iqbal, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to get the 70-200mm 2.8 but had to settle for this one because of the 2.8's $2,500 price tag. The f4 is a good lens no doubt about it. Used with flash it delivers stunning results. Sometimes it has problem focusing in low light but this problem can be handled by focusing the lens manually. This is not exactly a light weight lens so I think handling the 2.8 would be a bit of a problem. The build quality is similar to the new G lenses that are made from plastics.

Light and compact

Arab Ninja, Amazon

  • Summary: Great lense. I own the F2.8 vr2 also, and this goes with my on hiking trips while the bigger brother stays at home. The sharpest is good across the frame plus the vr mechanism on this is top notch, more so than the F2.8 vr2. My only complaint is the lack of collar (when I'm mounting it on tripod) that needs to purchased separately.

A great lens that only your wallet won't appreciate!

  • Summary: This lens is smaller and lighter than I thought. That's probably because I have used the Tamron and Sigma 70-200 2.8 lenses and the Sigma 50-150 OS lens and they are all a lot bigger and heavier than this one. It's so light that it kind of makes sense why the tripod collar is optional except then you have to wonder because of the price they are asking for this lens. You really don't even need it, although it would balance it out a little more on the tripod.

A superb lens and worth every cent I paid.

  • Summary: At half the weight and half the price of the iconic Nikkor f/2.8 70-200, it does everything I ask of it. Improved to a 3 foot minim auto focus distance, paired with my D7100 the AF is fast and accurate. The manual override with just a touch of the focus ring is perfect. Incredibly sharp, but you would expect to see no edge problems on my D7100 APS-C camera since this is a full frame FX lens.

Top Quality Nikon 70-200mm F4 VRll - Optics, Design, Function, and Portability

Scotishlion, Nikon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: The build and optical quality of the Nikon 70-200mm along with its lighter weight and price compared to Nikon's iconic pro-quality 70-200mm 2.8 VRII has proven to be a great choice on all of my current Nikon DSLR cameras: D300s, D7000, D7100, and a D600. I often shoot yachting races and maritime events in the San Francisco Bay with a Nikon 80-400mm mounted on a D300s or D7000 and the Nikon 70-200mm VR F4 mounted on the D600 or D7100 to take advantage of the great optical...

A lens worthy of serious consideration

F. Kim Hodgson, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: If you have been tempted, as I was, by Nikon's 70 - 200 mm f 2.8 lens, you might want to think again. This lens produces superb quality images, at least the equal of anything the much larger, much heavier f 2.8 version is capable of, and for $1,000 less. What are you giving up? One f-stop. With it's excellent VR system, this lens produces sharp, crisp images in low light as well as bright, even when hand held.

Excellent Quality

JaneW "JW", Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: As all Nikon lenses, the quality is excellent. I hesitated a bit paying the premium price but after comparing the reviews of other lenses I considered and after much agonizing , I bit the bullet. My first outing using the 70-200 proved I made the correct choice and I have had no second thoughts on spending more for this lens than I did for my D7000.
