Built for speed, the AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II from Nikon is a fast medium telephoto lens well-suited for photographing portraiture, wildlife, sports, and other fast-moving subjects. Characterized by its bright f/2 maximum aperture, this lens is an apt performer in low-light conditions and also is ideal for using shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques. Its sophisticated optical design employs one Super ED element along with three additional extra-low dispersion elements to greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity. Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings are also used to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity. Complementing the optics is a Silent Wave Motor, which affords fast and precise autofocus, and VR II image stabilization compensates for up to three stops of camera shake.
