Nikon Corporation added a new addition to the telephoto zoom lens family– the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR.
Compatible with the Nikon FX format, it covers the 70–200mm range of focal lengths with a fixed maximum aperture of f/4. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR joins the ultrawide-angle AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR and normal zoom AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR in f/4 maximum aperture lens series that forms the core of NIKKOR FX-format lenses. In spite of covering the 70-200mm range of focal length, it boasts of the closest focussing distance of approximately one meter. It also has a superior rendering with a focus from infinity to close-up, making it an excellent lens for a wide variety of scenes.
The lens adopts a number of exclusive Nikon technologies including Nano Crystal Coat, a built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) system that provides camera shake compensation equivalent to a fivestep increase in shutter speed, and a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for autofocussing.
