Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: This item is an AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm, f/2.8G ED VR II,
telephoto lens, optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness with the Nikon FX (23.9 x 36mm)
image sensors. It is also compatible with camera bodies using the DX format (APS-C
image sensors, 15.7mm x 23.7mm).
Construction: The seven Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements
ensure sharp pictures virtually free of color fringing.
Nano Crystal Coat: The Nano Crystal Coat deposited on some of
the lens elements ensures that fine, clear images can be reproduced under various
shooting conditions, from the sunny outdoors to spotlighted interior scenes.
Built-in CPU: The lens has a built-in CPU which allows it to
communicate with the camera body for focus and exposure functions. A set of CPU
contacts is located on the lens mount for interfacing with the camera body.
Auto Focus: Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet
autofocusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working
distance through the focus range. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables
ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet
operation. The manual/auto focus mode switch allows quick response to situations
requiring manual focus operation.
Zoom Control: The lens features a large, textured manual zoom
ring for easy zooming control.
Vibration Reduction (VR II): Vibration reduction minimizes the
effects of camera shake, allowing you to shoot handheld at as many as 4 shutter
speed stops slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper
images. You can turn vibration reduction on or off with the switch on the side of
the lens. VR has two modes; Normal and Active (designed for use with strong
vibrations, such as taking pictures while in a moving vehicle).
Aperture: Because there is no aperture ring on this lens, the
aperture must be set on the camera.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a fully-automatic, 9-blade
diaphragm that produces a nearly circular aperture. Out-of-focus images in front of
or behind the subject are rendered as pleasing blurs.
Tripod Collar: The tripod collar is detachable; it can be removed
when not needed.
Focus Range Limit: If your subject is always more than 16 feet
5 inches away, the focus limit switch allows you to fix the focus range at 5m-infinity
to reduce focusing time (available in autofocus mode only).
