Trusted by countless professionals, the ultra-fast AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II prime lens has captured exceptional moments in sports, music, theater and studio portraiture. Incorporating the superior optical design and features of its predecessor plus Nikon's second generation Vibration Reduction (VR II) image stablization system with tripod detection mode, Nano Crystal Coat (N) for minimal ghosting and lens flare and much more, the AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II is the lens of choice for serious photographers who want to produce razor-sharp images under the most demanding conditions.
Stunning moments await
Ultra-fast f/2 telephoto prime lens
The upgraded AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II produces razor-sharp images under the most demanding conditions including indoor sports, concerts, theater, wildlife, portraiture and more. Its ultra-fast f/2 maximum aperture renders shallow depth-of-field with beautiful background blur (bokeh) and is ideal for photographers seeking to freeze movement with fast shutter speeds in low lighting conditions.
Performance in any condition
Built for endurance and high performance
The AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II produces action-freezing, razor-sharp images, even in the most demanding conditions. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.0 stops of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture. Nano Crystal Coat (N) reduces ghosting and internal lens flare across a wide range of wavelengths for greater image clarity. Enhanced dust and moisture-resistance, magnesium die-cast barrel construction and a protective meniscus front lens ensure a lifetime of consistent performance for even the most demanding shooters.
Fast, Prime Telephoto Lens
Upgraded, fast, f/2 prime telephoto lens with Nikon VR II image stabilization and Nano Crystal Coat produces razor sharp images under the most demanding conditions including indoor sports, wildlife or portraiture.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
Automatic Tripod Detection Mode
Engages VR image stabilization when mounted on a tripod to minimize camera shake that occurs at shutter release.
Nano Crystal Coat
Further reduces ghosting and internal lens flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
Super ED Glass Element
Super ED glass excels at eliminating secondary spectrum and correcting chromatic aberration and offers low refractive index and lower dispersion. Also Super ED Glass is more resilient to rapid temperature changes.
3 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
