Nikon 200mm f/2G ED AF-S VR II

Available Today

The Nikon 200mm f/2G ED AF-S VR II is a very fast telephoto lens for Nikon F-mount cameras. Its f/2 aperture renders extremely shallow depth-of-field images with beautiful background blur, making it an ideal choice for a variety of photographic styles such as sports and portraiture. As an update to the original Nikon 200mm f/2 IF-ED AF-S VR, this lens added an improved Vibration Reduction II system, allowing up to 4-stops of correction with tripod-sensing ability. The updated version also features Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat for minimizing ghosting and lens flare and the additional A/M focusing mode. Otherwise, it offers the same extremely high image quality and performance of its predecessor. If you need a fast aperture telephoto lens, this is arguably the best available.

This lens is Faster than Paris Hilton, sharper than my ex-wife’s tongue, more contrast than a Democratic Primary, provides backgrounds as beautifully blurred as my memories of that weekend in Cancun, but is more expensive than an Illinois Congressman on vacation with a lobbyist.

This lens is phenomenal just as it is. With a set of teleconverters it can be any lens you want it to be from 200mm to 400mm.

Truth is, that’s one reason I love it: one lens and a set of teleconverters and I have a 200 f/2.0, 300 f/2.8, and 400 f/4 in a package smaller than just a 300 f/2.8. The other reason I love it is that as a 200mm f/2.0 it makes some of the most spectacular images I’ve seen.
