200 VR (I) Examples
5

Hi!

First of all, I don't consider myself a qualified camera or lens reviewer! But I am an active advanced hobbyist and have 5 years experience with the 200VR.

I'll leave the detailed 200VR reviews to those more qualified (there are many!)and limit myself to a few general comments and impressions.

So why am I posting a "review"?

Most of all, I wanted to post a link to some of my 200VR pictures, so that others can see examples of what this lens can do in a non-Pro's hands, in everyday use. Many lens reviews have a relative paucity of images, or are taken by a professional!:

Basically, the 200 VR (I) is one of the few lenses that I consider essential for my photographic interests.

Among the lenses that I've used, it sets the benchmark for lens performance in terms of image quality (see my profile and equipment list for other lenses that I use).

Best Regards,

RB

Nice pictures.

Some questions: Do you use it handheld, monopod or tripod? Have you ever used slot in filters, pola?

Almost always handheld:

Nikon D4 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR
1/1600s f/2.0 at 200.0mm iso800

Exception: Have used support for Landscapes:

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR
1/160s f/9.0 at 200.0mm iso200

Have you ever used slot in filters, pola?

I should, but haven't yet!

RB, that photo of the girl playing the violin (page 1) that we've seen before ... is one of my all-time favorite portraits ... ever. It gives me a great feeling every time I see it. Congrats!
