Nikon 70-200mm f/4G ED VR AF-S Nikkor review by andre_
30 December 2013
Summary: I just used this lens in my trip to Ghana few weeks ago, with my D600. Together with a 24-70/2.8 lens, this telezoom makes a perfect equipment for a travel. Despite it lacks the weather sealing, it is very well built, and I haven't had any problem in the hard conditions I've used it. The colour rendition is the usual for the new Nikkor lenses: high contrast, high saturation, but compared to the 24-70 this 70-200 has more details in the shadows.
Summary: This lens is fantastic! I had been debating between this and Nikon’s 2.8 version and opted to purchase the f4 primarily due to price, but also the very good reviews and recommendations/suggestions from others. Aside from saving $1000 over the 2.8, I have not yet found that I have lost anything in the bargain. Yes, I realize there may be times when I wish I had the 2.8 but being able to adjust the ISO on my D7000 that time has not yet come.
Summary: This lens is outstanding. Much sharper than my 70-200 2.8 vr1. I was really surprised by how much smaller and lighter it is compared to the 2.8 as well. Only downside is compared to the 2.8 it really is not quite as fast. It won't replace my 2.8 for freezing action and that is a shame. Looks like I will have to keep both.
