Nikon AF-S 200mm f/2G IF ED VR



Nikkor AF-S 200mm f/2G IF ED VR. The unique combination of an f/2 maximum aperture combined with Vibration Reduction enables new photographic opportunities in light conditions previously impossible to achieve without resorting to grainy high-speed film

Nikkor AF-S 200mm f/2G IF ED VR


The Nikkor AF-S VR 200mm f/2.0G IF-ED is first* f/2 lens with vibration reduction technology.

The unique combination of an f/2 maximum aperture combined with Vibration Reduction enables new photographic opportunities in light conditions previously impossible to achieve without resorting to grainy high-speed film or noise-prone digital ISO sensitivity settings. The shallow depth of field created by the wide f/2 aperture offers a unique appearance to pictures combined with a pleasing background blur and bright viewfinder image and will find favour with photographers seeking to freeze movement with fast shutter speeds in low lighting conditions.

Vibration Reduction

When light levels get really low, VR can be activated to enable sharp available-light images of still subjects or when using flash. The AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED is the fifth* Nikkor lens to incorporate Nikon's renowned Vibration Reduction system.

The system comprises of a suspended lens element that is positioned according to data from gyroscopic sensors and that compensates for accidental vertical or horizontal movement during slow shutter exposures.

The Nikon VR system can also detect deliberate movement - such as panning - automatically. Exposures with three or more stops slower shutter speed compared to a lens without VR can be achieved depending on shooting conditions and the technique of individual photographers.


This VR performance can be applied in a choice of two modes to suit shooting conditions. Normal mode is ideal for common shooting conditions, including panning or when using a tripod, whilst Active mode is designed to compensate for specific shake caused when shooting at slow shutter speeds from moving platforms such as cars or aircraft.


Shorter and narrower than its manual focus predecessor (the Nikkor 200mm f/2 IF-ED), the new lens is also 14mm shorter than the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED. These compact dimensions deliver real benefits when used in combination with Nikon AF-S teleconverters.

Super ED glass


The lens also features a brand new development in optical glass manufacture, a Super ED glass element. As its name suggests, Super ED glass offers increased contrast and reduced levels of aberrations over current ED glass that is so important when shooting at wide apertures. The AF-S VR Nikkor 200mm f/2.G IF-ED incorporates a total of four ED elements, the most currently available in a Nikkor SLR lens.
