Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens
Telephoto Zoom Lens for Nikon Z-mount
Well-suited for a variety of photography, including sports and portrait, the Nikon Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens is a versatile Z-mount telephoto zoom lens designed for use with FX image sensors on mirrorless cameras. When used with DX sensors, the lens offers a 105-300mm equivalent focus length range. Its bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture provides for consistent illumination throughout the zoom range that benefits especially when working in dimmer conditions, and also affords greater control over depth of field that benefits use of selective focus techniques.
Characterised by an optical design which includes six extra-low dispersion (ED) elements, one flourite elements, and one short-wavelength refractive (SR) element, the lens achieves markedly clear and colour-accurate images thanks to the elimination of chromatic aberrations and colour fringing throughout the zoom range. Additionally, application of ARNEO coating, Nano Crystal coating, and a Super Integrated Coating on the lens elements suppresses flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for imagery of improved contrast and colour fidelity. The Vibration Reduction Image Stabilisation complements the optics by reducing the appearance of camera shake, benefitting the lens' use in low-light and handheld shooting.
This zoom lens employs a multi-focus system, which incorporates two separate synchronised AF drive units for very fast and accurate focusing, and stepping motors for smooth and silent autofocus performance that benefit both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is available for increased focus control whenever required and the internal focusing design promotes faster focusing as only the internal lens group move. While the control ring is set to adjust manual focus by default, it can be flexibly programmed to control aperture or compensate for exposure. Two assignable L.Fn buttons are integrated to work in conjunction with your camera's function buttons for quick adjustments in exposure settings and other functions. The OLED information panel on the top of the lens body allow quick check of aperture and focus settings for a more seamless workflow.
The dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel and the front fluorine coating provides for operation in inclement weather, while the tripod collar affords well-balanced support when operating from a monopod or tripod. A rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh.
