Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II Review

The Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 is one of the lenses that I sometimes carry, I usually use to shoot portraits and panoramas, it's not the ideal lens to shoot objects that are far away since 200mm is not that far in my opinion and that's why I usually carry a Nikon TC-20E III 2x Teleconverter with me when I'm taking this lens. The photos I got with this lens were really sharp and the Bokeh looks beautiful when shooting at f/2.8 with this lens.

Nikon upgraded the Vibration Reduction (VR) on this lens that is supposed to help you get sharper images.

The weight and size of this lens is where the Nikon 70-200mm falls short, it's really heavy and it's almost impossible to hold your camera with one hand when this lens is attached.



  • Super sharp lens
  • 'The' lens to have for portraits photographers
  • Great Vibration Reduction

No Like:

  • Too Heavy
  • Almost impossible to hold it with one hand
