Tough to Beat

  • Excerpt: General purpose lens. Small and Light compared to the f/2.8 version with similar performance at about $1K less. The one stop difference is easily compensated with an ISO increase. This lens is sharp, focuses fast and handles well.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No tripod collar

Love This Lens

  • Excerpt: I tried the f/2.8 and just found it too heavy to carry around on a walk-around basis. I switched to this f/4. OMG - lighter, smaller and every bit as sharp as to image quality. You the trade-off is weight vs faster f/2.8. In my mind - not a contest. How often must one go to 2.8 vs always lugging around a lens that weights 2 to 3 times as heavy as this f/4. This is a terrific lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Good lens

  • Excerpt: My copy had no quality control problems that I could detect. It focused accurately at 100 inches at all focal lengths on a D800 with no autofocus correction. The exception was at 200mm where there was back focus of about 1/4 inch at 100 inches, which is within my personal tolerances. My copy was equally sharp in the center and corners at 30 feet at all focal lengths within my ability to use test charts.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus

Excellent lens

  • Excerpt: I'm planning a long-distance hike on which I plan to take a D800E and a 24-120 F/4 VR. I have a 70-200 f/2.8 VRII which I like a lot but it is big and heavy, so I bought the 70-200 f/4.0 VR for the trip. I expected it might not be quite as good as the f/2.8 but would be good enough for the trip and I could sell it afterward. Having received the f/4.0 and tested it for a while now, I'm happy to say it is as sharp, focuses as well, VR works as well as the f/2.8.

Amazing

Amudgarden, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I was pleasantly surprised at how will this lens performs. Images are every bit as crisp and clear as any image I've gotten with the f/2.8 version, and this lens is so much lighter than the f/2.8 model, it is actually a pleasure to carry around. It performs like a champ wide open at f/4, regardless of the shooting conditions and/or available light. Auto focus is speedy and sharp. For the money, this is one of the two finest lenses Nikon currently makes..

  • Excerpt: Wanted this lens for some time. Superb optics, matching or exceeding the 70-200 f2.8, and it weighs much less. A must have for any serious photographer.
