Warning to Manual-Focus Video Shooters

Ryan Douthit, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens so I'd have a decent zoom for travel to use for video and stills. The size and build quality are excellent, as are the optics. However, there is one huge issue that caused me to return it: The manual focus ring sticks. I went down to my local camera store and tried several.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor manual focus

Nice size and weight zoom

  • Excerpt: I really like the size and weight of this 70-200 lens, and because of that I am using much more than my old 80-200f2.8. I find the lens produces good sharp pictures. The loss of one stop of speed over the 2.8 is not a big issue, as this is predominately an outdoor daytime lens for me.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Excellent telephoto lens

  • Excerpt: I compared this lens to its sibling and the more revered Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 and finally ended up buying the Nikon 70-200 f/4. I can say without reservations I have not been disappointed with the lens. The pictures are tact sharp and the focusing is pretty fast.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Portable, Razor Sharp Pictures, Sharp

Big Disappointment

JAMESc, B&H Photo
5 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I have 70-200/2.8 VR II but it's heavy and bulky;so it ain't suitable for all situations. Having read lots of positive reviews of the lens, I decided to order one and it turned out to be quite an unpleasant experience. I tested it against my Nikon 70-300VR that it was supposed to replace.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor quality control

Great Product

  • Excerpt: I was considering the 70-200mm f/2.8 but could not justify the cost. I decided on this lenses and am extremely pleased. It is fast and weighs much less that the f/2.8 which comes in handy when caring the setup around all day. I just wish the tripod collar was included with the lens.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged

The first one was great

  • Excerpt: I just bought this lens to replace the one that was stolen in October. I had had it for a year and used it constantly. I bought it because of the lighter weight, and lighter price and have never run into a problem with the limit of f4.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Good Option

  • Excerpt: This is a great all around lens for shots you can't get into a better position for. Not too bad a price compard to the f2.8 version. Only complaint is that it is a handful-hardly fits in my bag.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Excerpt: If you are into photography you do know this is not the best money could buy but damn is it good. I sold off the heavier counter part to get the lighter one. I shoot more than f4 most of the time so this is a good.

  • Excerpt: Fast focus, sharp images and increased focal length on my D5200. I am having more fun with this lens than ever before. It makes amazing portriats as well as up-close wildlife. I will have this lens long after my DX is gathering dust along with a pile of DX lenses.
