Nikon - AF-S 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II Lens
Quick Overview |
The AF-S 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II is a versatile, powerful super-telephoto zoom lens that's perfect for sports and wildlife shooting, while offering a constant maximum aperture throughout the entire zoom range and VR II Image Stabilization which enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible.

The AF-S 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II features Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat that reduces ghosting and interior flare for even greater image clarity. Four Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements offer superior sharpness and color correction, while the exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus. A/M mode joins the familiar M/A and M modes, enhancing AF control versatility with fast, secure switching between auto and manual focus to accommodate personal shooting techniques.

Comments | [09/07/12] I've had this lens for a few months now and it's everything you'd expect from a $7,500 lens. Tack sharp throughout the range, autofocus is quick and precise. Decent weight - would be work to shoot handheld all day long with it but definitely doable. One thing I'm a little disappointed in is the texture of the bokeh wide open. Highlights tend to look just a little odd compared to a prime at an equal focal length. I might just be picky about this...bokeh is definitely a personal taste and you might not find the highlight bokeh objectionable. The oddities are not enough to make me dislike the lens, but I thought I'd mention it if you are picky about bokeh like me.

Comments | [05/28/11] I purchased this lens last July and couldn't be happier. I rarely use my 300 anymore. I use the 200-400 for indoor and out door rodeos every chance I get. Used with the D3s this is a tough combination to beat. I also tried 3 copies of the first version and wasn't impressed. Buy the VR II you won't be disappointed

Comments | [05/26/11] An improvement on the original, for sure, but make sure to compare both versions when considering this lens. For many, the V1 will be fine, and can be found for much cheaper. Still has some issues in low light, but it's still amazing how much you can shoot with this f/4 zoom.
