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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
