PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is the telezoom for Nikonians who can't handle the cost of the f/2.8 version of the lens.
  • Pros: Vibration reduction system. Fixed aperture through zoom range. Sharp images. Fairly light.
  • Cons: Tripod collar is an expensive add-on. Soft edges at 70mm.

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR Lens Review

  • Excerpt: Handling and features This telephoto zoom lens from Nikon is something Nikon users have been crying out for, for years. It covers the popular 70-200m range with a constant maximum aperture of f/4, which means this lens is considerably lighter weight than its f/2.8 equivalent. It also sports Nikon's latest Vibration Reduction technology, which promises sharp hand-held images at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than would be possible without.

AF-S 70-200 mm f/4.0G ED VR

4 May 2013
  • Excerpt: One of the lenses which the owners of the Nikon reflex cameras envied the Canon fans was the 70-200 mm, f/4.0 fixed maximum aperture instrument. Canon has two such devices in its line-up: the older model, without any stabilization, launched in 1999, and the newer one, stabilized, which has been available in shops since November 2006.
  • Cons: slight spherical aberration at 200 mm,, work against bright light could have been better.

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200/4 G ED VR

20 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200/4 G ED VR – еще один «честный» объектив, работающий так, как нужно и должно, и не требующий подхода «семь пишем, два на ум пошло»: на всех рабочих диафрагмах и на всем диапазоне фокусных объектив формирует привлекательное, качественное изображение. Придраться можно только к не всегда уверенной работе в контровом свете, во всех остальных дисциплинах объектив отработал только на «хорошо и отлично», а работа стабилизатора изображения заслуживает...

Nikon 70-200mm f/4 G FX VR ED AF-S NIKKOR

MyDigitalPhotos.dk
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I Nikon verdenen er deres 70-200 F2.8 kendt og elsket af mange. Men for dem der ikke lige har pengene til det store F/2.8, og heller ikke har lyst til at bære rundt på et tungt objektiv, så er 70-200 F/4 et helt fantastisk alternativ. Man mister selvfølgelig noget lysfølsomhed ved at den største blænde “kun” er F/4, men hvis man kan leve med det (og det tror de fleste kan, med mindre man fotograferer sport i indendørshaller eller ligenende) så kan jeg kun anbefale at man...

  • Summary: Już samo porównanie listy zalet i wad pokazuje wyraźnie, że Nikkor AF-S 70–200 mm f/4.0G ED VR to obiektyw bardzo udany. Jedyne co nam się nie podoba, to jego cena. Obecnie spadła już do poziomu poniżej 5000 zł, ale i tak jest ona wciąż o kilkanaście procent wyższa niż cena konkurencyjnego i stabilizowanego Canona. I choć Nikkor optycznie wypada trochę lepiej (kilka lat różnicy w dacie premiery robi jednak różnicę), to mechanicznie dominuje Canon.
  • Pros: świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, bardzo dobrze kontrolowana aberracja chromatyczna,, niewielka dystorsja na detektorze APS-C/DX,, brak problemów z komą,, znikomy astygmatyzm,, umiarkowane winietowanie,, cichy i celny autofokus,, świetna stabilizacja optyczna.
  • Cons: lekka aberracja sferyczna na ogniskowej 200 mm,, praca pod ostre światło mogłaby być lepsza.
