Nikon launches its new FX-format AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR telephoto zoom lens. With a 70-200mm focal length, the new lens features a fixed f/4 aperture for superior low light performance, which also allows you maintain a consistent exposure while zooming. It is the first NIKKOR lens to feature the third generation of Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) technology with up to 5 stops of image stabilization to compensate for camera shake.
The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is constructed from 20 optical elements in 14 groups. It uses ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass for optimum correction of chromatic aberrations and multilayer Super Integrated Coating on its optical elements. There is also Nano Crystal Coat anti-reflective coating to significantly reduce instances of ghosting and flaring. It sports Silent Wave Motor (SWM) to provide quiet and responsive autofocus operation. The lens has two focus modes, the M/A (autofocus with manual override) and M (manual focus), for users to choose from.
Coming in late November, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR will be priced at $1399.95. Nikon will also release an optional Tripod Collar for $223.95.
