The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm F4G ED VR is a relatively lightweight standard zoom lens with a constant maximum aperture of F4, designed for use on Nikon's FX (full-frame) and DX (APS-C) DSLRs. On a cropped sensor, this lens covers an effective focal range of 105-300m. The 70-200mm F4 includes Nikon's 'third generation' vibration reduction, which allows for sharp hand-held images at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Optical construction comprises 20 elements in 14 groups, including three ED (extra low-dispersion) glass elements, one HRI (high refractive index) element. We like this lens for its portability, excellent image quality, and effective image stabilization.
