The AF-S VR NIKKOR 200mm f/2.0 G AF-S IF-ED Lens offers a variety 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, superb clarityand immense potential with VR technology for shooting in low light conditions or from moving platforms.
The AF-S VR NIKKOR 200mm f/2G AF-S IF-ED lens incorporates Super ED glass - a significant new material that is more resilient than typical fluorite lenses and offers higher optical quality with exceptional consistency even at large apertures.
With a maximum aperture of f/2, this lens is a very fast lens that when combined with the advantages of VR technology, offers photographers remarkable shooting capabilities that may not have been previously possible. Nikon's advanced VR technology eliminates image blur caused by camera shake, particularly when shooting in low-light conditions, allowing photographers to use shutter speeds up to three stops slower (8x) than they would ordinarily use to get sharp, well exposed images.
Note: G-type lenses are fully compatible with all current camera models (as of 01/04). The older camera models F4, N90/s, N70, N8008/s, N6000 will only work in Program and Shutter Priority modes.
Note: VR feature will only work with Nikon's F6, F5, F100, N80, N75, N65, D100 & D1 and D2-series (or any newer model) cameras.
Note: AF-S feature is not supported by certain camera models. Please click here for a list of compatible models.
- Fast f/2 capability allows subjects to be given more emphasis by throwing background elements out of focus
Super ED glass excels at eliminating secondary spectrum and correcting chromatic aberration and offers low refractive index and lower dispersion.
Includes: 3 ED elements, 1 Super ED element, 1 Protective glass (meniscus)
Vibration Reduction (VR) minimizes image blur caused by camera shake (cancelable). Two available VR modes :
1) Normal mode is ideal for most common shooting
conditions, panning, and use in combination with a tripod
2) Active mode is better suited to conditions involving more movement, such as
shooting from a moving vehicle or platform
2-Stage Focus Limiter Switch for faster AF operation:
- Full (∞ - 6.2 ft.)
- Limit (∞ - 16.4 ft.)
- Internal Focusing (IF) design for smoother focusing and better body balance
- Built-in M/A switch enables instant switching from autofocus to manual focus
- Silent Wave Motor for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet AF
- The rounded diaphragm (9 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
