I switched to the mirrorless Nikon Z6 and am looking for the upcoming S series zooms for the Z6 & Z7.  The AF-S 70-200 was excellent in many ways, but it was way too heavy for me.  I only used it once or twice a year.  And I do love the Z6. It is a very user friendly camera.

After owning the Sigma 70-200 2.8, Nikon 70-200 2.8VR (twice) & Nikon70-200 F4, i finally settled on this bad boy 3 years ago!!! I use it for all types of shooting i.e, family, birding, portraits. For addtl reach, i just add my tc-20eIII since i don't feel need to carry any longer primes. Outstanding build quality, nano coating, truly a workhorse :)

Sooooooo, I bought a Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 and I didin't like the color and contrast- it was also never tack sharp......got rid of it..... Then I didn't learn my lesson, I bought a Tamron 70-200mm (no VC) and I learned I could no longer hold my hands steady enough even with proper hand holding techniques.....traded it in and bought a used Nikon 70-200mm VRII in excellent condition with a 2 year warranty. THIS is the lens I always wanted! Okay, so the price is justified. Color and contrast is ...

After finally persuading my wife that we didn't need a holiday in 2016, I purchased one of these babies - and I'm glad I did, because it's quite simply the best thing I've ever bought. It weighs a ton (I shoot at cycling events so I'm often schlepping two cameras, one with this attached, all day; my neck usually hurts for a day or two afterwards) but it's worth it - it delivers superb results every single time, and in almost all conditions. It focuses almost unbelievably quickly on my D300s ...

An investment for a lifetime. When you are not professional lens investment like this is an expensive investment, sometimes for a lifetime. One of the key features of such lenses is their durability and added value, even after used for their aftermarket. When I decided to sell my 80-200 ED 2.8 Nikon lens I wanted more precision, I wanted a sharper image. This lens meets all these characteristics. What I like the most about it is durability. For being a great brand and for having a great value ...

I love this lens. Is absolutely reliable, has a excellent color, contrast and tone reproduction, is very sharp, bokeh is smooth and I know I can always trust it for good images, even in harsh conditions. I mount it in my camera and focus on the art. I never tried the Tamron model but I bought this one and never looked back. I don't even have the need to try the competition. I use it in a Nikon D7200 and shoot concerts and theater. In my shooting conditions, a zoom is preferable and this one ...

I sold a Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D and a Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D to help purchase this lens.  I was was not sure that it was the right decision, these were quality lenses and I had gotten excellent results from both.  But I needed the VR for some low light work so I sold the lenses and purchased the 70-200.  Wow, my old lenses will not be missed (well maybe the 85) and what a jump in quality of photos.  When the 80-200 got a shot spot-on it was excellent.  When the 70-200 gets a shot-spot on it is ...

Nothing to say. Just unbelivable. Focusing, sharpness, built quality are perfect. Also great with TC14.
