Re: AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300 mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR

Thanks much for the additional reply and info. I found out that my D7200 has the latest "C" firmware update, which is 1.04, so it should be compatible with AF-P lenses.

The Nikon firmware page for the D7200 states:

"Added the following supports for AF-P lenses:

  • - If the standby timer expires after focusing, the focus position will no longer change when the timer is reactivated.
  • - When focus is adjusted by rotating the lens focus ring, the focus indicator in the viewfinder (and in live view, the focus point in the monitor) now flash to indicate when infinity or the minimum focus distance is reached."

No mention there of any limitation of the VR function when using an AF-P FX lens on the D7200.

And I like the fact that the AF-P FX includes the "Sport" option for its VR.
