Great lens!

  • Excerpt: I have been waiting for this lens a long, long time. I have had all the 80-200/70-200 Nikon zooms (all versions, f4.5/4/2.8). Now, with digital photography, I do not longer need the f2.8 aperture and the extra weight. I have been using the f4 for a couple of weeks, and I have to say that the optic quality is amazing; and size and weight are important reasons to buy this lens. I did some proof photos to check optics and I am very happy with the overall quality.

  • Excerpt: very light and sharp. use to heavy, metal in high quality lens but will it hold up. Less shake because of weight and VR. No need for tripod collar as light even on d800. Would like metal front as all plastic and concern for on and off filters.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Casing

  • Excerpt: I gave up my older 80-200 F2.8 in favor of a lighter easy-to-hold lens, and am very pleased with the results. Very manageable weight and balance, and the images are exceptional.

Excellent lens!!!

  • Excerpt: It is light, fast focus, VR third generation is awesome, last but not least it delivers tack sharp and phenomenon images rendering. Comparing to Nikkor 70-200 f2.8, this is a great alternative lens if you don't need f2.8.I am very happy with this purchase!!!Only Con of this lens is purchasing collar separately. Instead of paying $ for Nikkor RT-1, you can find much cheaper collar with the same quality.

Great telephoto lens

  • Excerpt: I've used this lens for 2 shooting sessions so far, and it's incredibly sharp!! Seems sharper than my 85/1.8D. And the maximum aperture f/4 is already tack sharp.<br /><br />The weight feels good with my D600. Well balanced, and definitely not too heavy at all. I can probably shoot all day long with it.<br /><br />Focusing was really responsive and fast. Did a quick series of bird-in-flight shots, almost every photo was in focus and sharp.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Not Bayonet Lens Hood, Poor in Low Light

What a wonderful upgrade!

  • Excerpt: I traded in my old 70-200 2.8 VR lens for this one to use with my D800E and have not been disappointed. The old lens was just not suitable for the 800... I wish I would have switched a year ago. The lens is much lighter. While maybe not the "best" lens for the D800E, it is still a remarkable lens that performs much better than what I was using previously.

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.

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.
