Lens Review: Nikon 200mm f/2 AI-s ED
1 week ago

Six months in the making, I've finally found the time to write my full review of this fantastic telephoto. In that time it has helped me make thousands of photographs, and is now a permanent part of my kit. In fact, along with the Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 and Nikon 85mm f/1.4 AI-s, it is among my most used lenses. Sure, it's unwieldy on a NEX-7, but it really isn't much better on a "suitable" DSLR. I shoot this on a monopod 90% of the time anyway, so it doesn't matter.

It's sharp, it's fast, it is "bokehlicious". Apart from that, there isn't much bad to say about it besides its susceptibility to veiling flare (122mm front element to blame). Shoot it wide open and you'll be happy! For the full review, and many more photographs, check the jump: Nikon 200mm f/2 AI-s ED Full Review.
