NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens with UV Filter Kit Overview

By B&H Photo's

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the versatile telephoto zoom lens with a 77mm multicoated UV filter to absorb ultraviolet light and protect the front of the lens.

Nikon NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens

A popular zoom among sports, event, and portrait photographers, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S from Nikon is an impressively versatile telephoto lens characterized by its bright f/2.8 design. The fast maximum aperture suits working in available lighting conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects with selective focus. The optical design incorporates a series of ED, fluorite, and SR elements, which help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and color accuracy. Additionally, ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, as well as a Super Integrated Coating, have been applied to suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for improved contrast and color fidelity.

Complementing the optical design, a multi-focus system, which employs two stepping motors, helps to realize impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs. Vibration Reduction further complements making sharp images by reducing the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld. The lens also has a unique physical design, which incorporates a top OLED information panel that can be used to quickly confirm aperture and focus settings, and an assignable L.Fn button permits making exposure and settings adjustments via the lens. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

Versatile zoom is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with DX-format models where it provides a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and using selective focus techniques.
Featuring a combination of six extra-low dispersion elements, one fluorite element, and one short-wave refractive index element, chromatic aberrations and color fringing is effectively eliminated throughout the zoom range for notable clarity and color accuracy.
Two aspherical elements are featured to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats are used to prevent ghosting, reflections, and flare in order to realize improved contrast and clarity when working in strong lighting and backlit conditions. The Nano Crystal Coat controls incidental light from a diagonal direction while the ARNEO Coat controls incidental light from a vertical direction. A Super Integrated Coating is also featured on multiple elements to help ensure consistently accurate colors.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake to better enable handheld shooting in low-light situations.
Multi-focus system incorporates two separate AF drive units, which are synchronized, to deliver especially fast and accurate focusing throughout the zoom range. This system uses stepping motors, which offer impressively smooth and quiet autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Integrated OLED lens information panel allows you to quickly confirm aperture setting, focus distance, and depth of field figures right on the lens in both bright and dark situations.
Two assignable L.Fn buttons work in conjunction with camera-based Fn buttons to provide seamless points for quickly changing exposure settings and other functions.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel, along with a front fluorine coating, benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.
Removable, rotating tripod collar spins on ball bearings to permit quick and smooth switching from vertical to horizontal shooting orientations.

NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens with UV Filter Kit Reviews

So far, soo Good!

By Frederick

This lens compliments, and has been a great addition to my line up of one lens! I was behind the Mirror less curve but I jumped it and decided to do it better with the equipment. I had planned to purchase the 180-600 mm lense, but with the delay, I switched my order to the Z 70-200mm f28 VR S, to get my lenses lined up. I shoot wildlife, aircraft, high school sports and landscapes. Basically any thing, I do it for the fun and my hobby. When it arrived, I put it to the test at my neighbor hood pond. I hand held it for almost 2 hours and got some great shots. Weight wasn't an issue at all at the pond and then a soccer game and volleyball game. My grandson and niece were happy with the results along with the families. Being 65 year old now, my plans with my equipment are to enjoy it all, which I am. I'm not a numbers person, I'm giving you a blue collar review. So here it is. The lens is the perfect length and weight and I love the internal zoom. The zoom ring location is different but you get used to it quickly. It's just a Home Run for me and will be for you.

Fantastic lens

My Second Nikon 70-200mm f2.8

Though is just as large as the f-mount lens it is replacing, this remains to be my favorite lens. This lens allows me to capture candid images of family/friends from afar, avoiding that in-your-face camera experience. Fun to see the evolution of this lens to include a pair of programmable lens function buttons and an on-lens display that lets you switch between current focal length or f-stop. Same Nikon quality - this lens will continue to be a favorite for many years to come.

Capturing images of the animals in a zoo setting is maid easier with theNikon Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens. Using the zoom allows you to quickly frame and isolate the animal from the superfluous background. This lens is very sharp and fast to focus, helping you to capture the moment. Love this lens! Thanks as always to B&H for providing great products and service.

Nikon's Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens can be depended on to capture the action under the lights in smaller athletic venues, capture the elusive subject at the wedding reception or capture wildlife at a zoo. A very sharp lens at all focal lengths that can follow and capture the action. Love this lens! Thanks again to B&H of providing quality products and services.

Excellent!  Only one issue.

By Bill

Overall, I found this lens to be an excellent lens. This is my third iteration of this lens, having owned 2 copies for DSLR. The Z version seems even sharper than the DSLR versions. It focuses very quickly and accurately, has excellent clarity and contrast, and the weight seems easy to handle. The action of turning from 70 to 200 is very smooth and the tension is perfect. The only issue I have is the same issue I've always had with the 70-200 (and some other Nikkor lenses) and that is the cheap tripod foot. Why Nikon hasn't learned over the years that people DO NOT like these cheap tripod feet on their lenses is beyond me. I use this lens primarily for landscapes, not wildlife, so it spends 90% of its time on my tripod. In the past I have purchased an RRS foot or RRS foot/collar combo to replace the Nikkor foot, and it looks like I will do so once again. The knob you loosen to switch from horizontal to vertical is too small and its location is not good, and the travel is not smooth at all. This is the only reason I give this lens a 4 instead of a 5 rating, and I almost gave it a 3 because it is a big deal to me. I know it's not a big deal to wildlife folks who handhold the lens, but us landscape folks it's a large negative.

Superior lens!

When used with a Nikon Z6 or Z7, is this lens designed to be water-resistant or water proof? What are the recommendations for use during a (light) rain?
Asked by: Mike
The Nikon Z6 Mirrorless Digital Camera, the Nikon Z7 Mirrorless Digital Camera, and the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens are all weather-sealed products from Nikon to protect both the cameras and the lens from dust and moisture. They are not waterproof, so neither the cameras nor the lens can be submerged or used underwater, but they can be used in inclement weather.
