The built-in Silent Wave AF motor provides full compatibility with all Nikon F-mount DSLRs, giving you extremely fast and silent autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override.

Combined with its compact, lightweight design, the 70-200mm f/4 offers a more travel-friendly approach than its big brother, the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G AF-S VR II. Despite this decrease in size and weight, the f/4 version still offers great image quality with an advanced optical formula. Whether you shoot with an FX- or DX-format camera, handheld or tripod-mounted, the 70-200mm f/4G AF-S VR delivers stellar performance for sports, action, or any other shooting type that requires a fast telephoto zoom.
