  • Summary: Nikon's 'Mark II' 70-200mm telezoom fixes the problems suffered by the previous version on full frame bodies, while updating to the latest and greatest VR system. It's an equally accomplished performer on both DX and FX that will satisfy the most demanding of photographers.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality on both DX and FX formats, especially at 200mm, Superb build quality with dust and moisture sealing, Excellent optical image stabilization, Excellent autofocus with manual override
  • Cons: Pronounced focus 'breathing', i.e. widening of the angle of view on focusing closer, Reduced maximum magnification compared to previous version, Somewhat susceptible to flare with direct light sources in or close to the frame, Poorly-designed lens hood - too shallow, and with curved ends, Slightly fiddly AF and VR switches, AF stop buttons removed (and replaced by occasionally-confusing cosmetic grip)

Lens Test: Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

Pop Photo
18 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Nikon has produced more than half a dozen high-speed, tele zooms since the early 1980s. The first with Vibration Reduction— the full-frame 70–200mm f/2.8 VR of 2003—was an instant classic, lauded for its high-speed autofocus, VR, and attractive styling. For its latest update ($2,320, street), Nikon has added two more ED glass elements (for a total of seven), its Nano Crystal coating and VR II shake control.

AF-S 70-200 mm f/2.8G ED VR II

16 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Originally posted 2010-06-21 on Optyczne.pl Not so long ago it seemed that Nikon didn’t have to change anything in its offer of 70-200 mm class journalistic lenses. The company offered its customers two models: the AF 80–200mm f/2.8D ED, which was characterized by good price/quality ratio but lacked an in-build AF motor and stabilization and the AF-S 70–200 mm f/2.8G IF-ED VR, which was a better lens, more expensive but stabilized.
  • Cons: edge of full frame is a bit too soft at the maximum relative aperture.
