Nikon 200-400mm Gets the VR II Treatment


Nikon will be shipping an updated version of its popular 200-400mm f/4 telephoto lens in late May. Headline features include VR II (with up to 4-stops of shake savings) and Nano Crystal Coatings to keep colors consistent while reducing ghosting and lens flare. The optical formula and lens design are basically the same as the previous version -- no major changes in speed, size, weight, etc. Price? Under $7000.

We’ll have a hands on review of the new lens when it ships. In the mean time, there are a limited number of the previous 200-400mm VR telephotos at B&H. Can’t wait? Want a deal? The price is certainly right.
