The New Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR

Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR. A next-generation fast zoom lens compatible with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras that offers a consistently fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout its entire zoom range.

The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is approximately 110 g lighter than the current AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, contributing to the photographer’s ability to remain focused on shooting, even for long periods of time. The lens structure provides weather-resistant performance with anti-dust and waterdrop-resistant capabilities. Furthermore, Nikon’s exclusive fluorine coat applied to the extreme front surface achieves high antifouling performance and peel-resistant properties. The weather-resistant performance combined with the reduced weight makes this lens highly agile equipment that supports shooting in diverse environments.

  • One of the downsides of this lens? They switched the focus and zoom ring and with a hefty pricetag of 3000 euro’s (here in the EU) might not make it that popular.
