Nikon 200mm F2G IF-ED AF-S VR Lens For Nikon SLR Cameras
The AF-S 200mm VR is part of Nikon's high-end telephoto range, a collection of lenses designed for professional use and optimized for most excellent optical quality. Being the shortest of the family, the 200 F2G IF-ED AF-S VR is also the least expensive, but nonetheless it's still far from being low-priced. The AF-S VR NIKKOR 200mm f/2.0 G AF-S IF-ED Lens offers a range of applications for all kinds of photographers. Many will find uses for its expressive quality of emphasizing subjects in portraits by rendering background elements completely out of focus, while others will use it for its large aperture, outstanding clarity and immense potential with VR technology for shooting in streak conditions.
As to be expected in this lens class, the build quality is superb, a truly professional grade lens. Most parts are made of metal with a slight crinkle finish. The broad rubberized focus control ring operates smoothly. The solid construction and the amount of glass lift the weight to almost 3 kg, which is on the borderline of being hand-holdable. It's certainly possible for a short time, but for longer use a monopod is a welcome accessory.
The unique combination of an f/2 maximum aperture combined with Vibration Reduction enables new photographic opportunities in light conditions previously impossible to achieve. The shallow depth of field created by the wide f/2 aperture offers a unique appearance to pictures combined with a pleasing background blur and bright viewfinder image and will find favour with photographers seeking to capture movement with fast shutter speeds in low lighting conditions.
When light levels get really low, VR can be activated to enable sharp available-light images of still subjects. The AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED is the fifth Nikkor lens to incorporate Nikon's renowned Vibration Reduction system. The system comprises of a suspended lens element that is positioned according to data from gyroscopic sensors and that compensates for accidental vertical or horizontal movement during slow shutter exposures. The Nikon VR system can also detect deliberate movement such as panning automatically. Exposures with three or more stops slower shutter speed compared to a lens without VR can be achieved depending on shooting conditions and the technique of individual photographers. This VR performance can be applied in a choice of two modes to suit shooting circumstances. Normal mode is perfect for common shooting conditions, including panning or when using a tripod, whilst Active mode is designed to compensate for specific shake caused when shooting at slow shutter speeds from moving platforms such as cars or aircraft.
As its name suggests, Super ED glass offers increased contrast and reduced levels of aberrations over current ED glass, so important when shooting at wide apertures. The AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm f/2.G IF-ED integrate a total of four ED elements, the most currently available in a Nikkor SLR lens.
