Hands-on with Nikon Z 70-200mm F2.8 S

This view shows the standard A|M switch for focus and a simple focus limiter, to stop the lens from hunting through its entire range for distant subjects. Close focus (should you need it) is 1m at 200mm, and 0.5m at 70mm - a nice improvement over Nikon's previous 70-200mm designs for DSLRs.

The Z 70-200mm F2.8 S offers an impressive built-in VR system, capable of 5 stops of correction, Nikon's highest-ever rating (per CIPA). So what's missing? The Z 70-200mm F2.8 S does not feature the familiar VR mode switch found on many Nikon lenses; instead, VR is toggled and controlled via the camera body.
