Very good lens; only a few times (<1%) that I wish I had brought along the f2.8 instead; portability means more photos!

  • Summary: I use this lens on a D750, and honestly the D750 does such a great job at high ISO that I don't miss the extra stop very often as compared to the 70-200mm f2.8 VR II. This lens focuses fast and is so much lighter and more portable, that I find myself carrying it around a lot more, which means I'm...

  • Summary: I don't usually write reviews but I am so in love with this lens I needed to spread the word. This lens is epic! I wish I could give it 6 stars. Some background on me: I'm a serious amateur, former daily newspaper photo editor in college, etc.

  • 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.

  • 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...

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.

Light and compact

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
