Nikon recently launched its new FX-format AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR telephoto zoom lens – the first NIKKOR lens to feature the third generation of Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) technology.

Striking an ideal balance between exceptional optics, advanced lens technologies and a remarkably compact, lightweight design, this lens offers superior performance and stunning image quality whether shooting beautiful stills or HD video in challenging lighting conditions. Smaller and lighter than Nikon’s AF-S NIKKOR 70-200 f/2.8 lens, this lens is able to vastly reduce camera shake and blur by offering the equivalent shutter speed of approximately five stops slower than otherwise possible.

When used alongside the Nikon D4, D800 series and D600 D-SLR cameras, 70-200mm f/4 lens users can take advantage of Nikon professional grade teleconverters to increase the focal length without sacrificing AF and VR abilities. By utilizing the camera’s cross-type focus points at f/8 and below, users can effectively double the focal length of this f/4 lens to 400mm and still retain the AF ability to capture clear subjects at an even greater distance.
