Overview: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G
ED VR lens is a 2.9x telephoto zoom lens with an f/4 fixed aperture for high
performance stills and HD videos. It is designed for use with FX/35mm format cameras, but has
been optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both FX and DX-format D-SLRs. When
mounted on a DX-format camera, the angle of view is reduced, and the focal
length range is equivalent to 105-300mm.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): Nikon's Super
Integrated Coating (SIC) offers superior color performance and substantially
reduced ghosting and flare, by enhancing light transmission.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.
Internal Focus: Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet
autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance
throughout the focus range.
Vibration Reduction (VR): Vibration Reduction (VR) reduces
blur caused by camera shake, allowing shutter speeds up to five stops slower
than would otherwise be the case. You can enable Vibration Reduction by
switching the VR switch on the lens barrel to "on." You can further select the
VR Mode to Normal or Active depending upon the degree of camera shake. When the
camera's shutter button is pressed halfway, VR is activated, reducing the
effects of camera shake for better framing and focus. If the camera is mounted
on a tripod, it is recommended that VR be turned off.
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of
the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want
to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on
the lens needs to be set to "M/A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a
manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while
pressing the shutter release halfway.
Focus Limit Switch: The lens features a Focus Limit Switch
which determines the focus distance limits for auto focus. You can select "Full"
for subjects that may be closer than 9.84' (3m), or "∞-3m" for subjects
that will always be at a distance of at least 9.84'.
Lens Construction: The AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm lens is
constructed of 20 elements in 14 groups, including 3 ED (Extra-low Dispersion
glass) lens elements for maximum sharpness and minimum chromatic aberrations,
and lens elements with the Nano-Crystal Coating to reduce ghosting and lens
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 9-blade
diaphragm, which renders a more natural appearance of out-of-focus image
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the HB-60 bayonet-type lens
hood. The hood adds approximately 1-3/4" to the overall length of the lens. You
can invert the hood and snap it onto the lens for storage, if desired.
Optional Tripod Collar Ring: The RT-1 is an optional
accessory tripod collar ring designed specifically for the AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm
f/4G ED VR lens. The RT-1 can be used to attach the lens to a tripod instead of
attaching the camera's body directly to the tripod. This is recommended with
additional support for the camera and lens is desired.
