Features

Breathtaking Images That Truly Stand Out
Capture phenomenal stills and videos in stunning high-resolution with the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR. A single fluorite lens element renders excellent imagery with superb chromatic aberration correction performance, while a High-Refractive Index (HRI) lens element effectively corrects curvature of field and spherical aberration for exceptional clarity. Six Extra-low Dispersion glass elements ensure outstanding contrast and colour rendering. The Nano Crystal Coat also works to minimize ghosting and flare effects for unsurpassed image quality.

Engineered For Stability
Designed for movement, the Vibration Reduction (VR) system of the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR delivers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops*2 faster in NORMAL mode for steadier shots during handheld shooting. Its Vibration Reduction (VR) ‘SPORT’ mode also provides a stable viewfinder image even when tracking randomly moving subjects during high-speed continuous shooting, which is especially effective when shooting sporting events.

For Every Frame That Matters
Never miss a moment with the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR. An improved autofocus (AF) tracking performance, along with the incorporation of an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, enables you to achieve effective subject tracking and greater auto exposure control with ease, even during high-speed continuous shooting.

Majestic At Any Distance
With a minimum focusing distance of 1.1m, this remarkable lens brings you nearer to your subjects with absolute focus and precision. However, the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR isn’t just about getting closer. With a focal length of up to 200mm and maximum reproduction ratio of 0.21x, capturing magnificent close-up shots of the smallest of subjects comes easy – even from afar.

Reliability On The Go
The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR offers unmatched agility that you can always rely on. It weighs approximately 110g lighter than the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, thanks to magnesium-alloy parts and the incorporation of one fluorite and one HRI lens elements. Sealed movable parts provide anti-dust and water-drop resistant capabilities, while fluorite coating effectively repels dust, water droplets, greases or dirt, ensuring easy maintenance and reinforced durability wherever your adventures may take you.
