Nikon FX 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II AF-S Telephoto Lens

Product information

Whether you’re shooting sports and wildlife or just looking to frame that perfect moment without disturbing your subject, the Nikon FX 70-200mm has you covered. Take control with multiple focus modes and enjoy less tremor blur at extreme range thanks to advanced vibration reduction.


  • Vibration reduction (VR II) is equivalent to a four step increase in shutter speed for incredibly sharp results.
  • A new optical design utilises seven ED glass elements for purer colours and more natural contrast.
  • Nano Crystal Coat suppresses ghosting and flares in all your photographs.
  • A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) delivers superior autofocus that’s smoother and quieter than ever before.
  • Three focus modes (manual, manual/auto and auto/manual) give you complete control over your photography.
  • The aperture diaphragm utilises an odd number of rounded blades (nine) for natural blur characteristics.
  • Shoot as close as 1.4m throughout the entire zoom range.
  • Comes with: 77mm Snap-on front lens cap LC-77, rear lens cap LF-1, bayonet hood HB-48 and semi-soft case CL-M2.

Compatible with Nikon FX and DX formats.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best of the lot. I have used various zoom lens.from canon, sigma and tamron. Since my move to Nikon and purchasing this lens I've been extremely happy with it. You may be paying a lot but you get what you pay for with excellent focusing speed and fantastic sharpness through all the apertures. Its a hefty piece of gear but build qualty is great unlike other brands that are predominantly plastic, this is truly a professional bit of kit that should take the knocks of a working photographer. Add the 2 yr JL warranty coverage that isn't available from other suppliers makes this a great deal.. I ordered this online and collected next day from the store so really happy with the service. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Specialist lens thats very special indeed This is an excellent lens. I am utterly thrilled with it. The delivery was swift and it was the 2 year returns policy that gave me the courage to jump in and buy it. Absolutely no regrets. Its Nikon at its best. 19 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing lens. Incredibly sharp to all edges of the frame and incredibly durable build quality. It's heavy to manoeuvre but worth the aching wrist! 25 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavy Duty I'm very pleased with the results. Mounted on my D600 gives 3Kgs so I've invested in a monopod to give my wrists a rest. Very good value. 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best lens ever ! I have had some professional Nikon lenses which are great but none of them makes photography so enjoyable as this one. Normally in low light situation I would never try to take a photo with 1/10 of a second but VRII on this lens is unbelievable. With such slow shutter speed you still get sharp photos. I must say that for the first 3 weeks after the purchase this lens has been mounted on my camera all the time. Now I understand people who says that they use this lens for most of time even. Perfect lens for all kinds of photography. Bokeh is awesome by the way . I took some beautiful portraits as well. I would pay for this lens even more if I had to. Highly recommended. 12 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best in class without doubt I have had and worked with the orginal lens for a few years and thought it was great. but, WOW!! the re-incarnation of this lens is outstanding. Right out the box and onto my camera a few test shots outdoor and I was blown away. The images was tact sharp and crystal clear, a definite improvement. Put the camera in Manual mode and tweeked the shutter speed down to 1/40 to see how the VR would perform, OMG it is unbeleivable!! Well done Nikon, still the best in class :o) 29 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best Zoom Nikon lens available Quite simply a top notch lens. Superb AF, Amazing build quality, Decent VR and Tack sharp! A must buy for all serious Nikon DSLR users 04 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome lens. This lens is expensive, but the result are outstanding and you won't be disappointed. This lens will focus very quickly and the VR feature works a treat, meaning that handholding at lower shutter speeds is possible. The results are sharp and very impressive. F2.8 throughout the zoom range is a real bonus too, as is weather proofing. Build quality is Nikon at its best and this Lens is very durable. A pro lens at a high price, but a fantastic lens in every way. 02 September 2012
