Obsession for details. Uncompromising Zoom.
The highly-desirable 70-200mm telephoto zoom has come to the Z series. Sports, concerts, weddings, wildlife, portraiture and so much more—all with the incredible low light performance of an f/2.8 made only better by the optically superior Z mount. Optical advancements support passionate cinematographers and videographers. Class-leading close focus ability. Superior aberration suppression. And the most comprehensive optical VR image stabilization in the history of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses. The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S sets an impressive new standard for fast telephoto zoom lenses optimized for the next generation of Nikon's advanced mirrorless cameras.
NIKKOR quality at its absolute best.
At the top of the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lens lineup, S-Line lenses push Nikon’s tradition of optical excellence and innovation to unprecedented new heights. Superior performance and resolution. Sophisticated features and operability. Specialized technologies and reliability enhancements. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards.
Class-leading close focusing.
For greater framing versatility, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is capable of extremely short minimum focusing distances, allowing the lens' speed and performance enhancements to be realized in remarkably tight shooting scenarios. At 70mm, focus can be achieved as close as 0.5m from the subject, virtually unheard of in a telephoto zoom of this focal range.
The finest of details.
The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S captures astoundingly sharp images with captivating resolution and glorious clarity all the way to the edges of the frame. It's superior VR performance ensures exceptional sharpness when shooting handheld. And to combat color fringing while close focusing, an all-new multi-focusing system delivers fast, accurate autofocusing while drastically reducing aberrations.
Smooth, fast and quiet autofocus.
Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor (STM), autofocusing is fast, silent and incredibly accurate. Where camera noise can be distracting or problematic—street photography, wedding ceremonies, wildlife or on video productions—STM is a silent partner.
Superior color and sharpness
Ultimate aberration correction—virtually zero flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical and axial aberrations, even at the far edges of the frame. A new SR (Short-wavelength Refractive) glass element further combats chromatic aberrations caused by challenging short-wavelength light.
One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame, for bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting.
Steadier than ever.
With built-in optical VR image stabilization effective for up to an unprecedented 5.5 stops* and Z series' high performance in-body image stabilization, tack-sharp images are easily achieved when shooting handheld. During video shooting, additional electronic VR (e-VR) can be enabled for even greater stability.
The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is a remarkable lens for video applications. Smooth, silent AF with virtually no focus breathing. Standard 77mm filter support. Superior optical image stabilization combines with the camera's* in-body image stabilization and Electronic VR. All of this added to the versatility of the highly useful 70-200mm focal range.
*In-body image stabilization not available in all Z series cameras.
