The fast, full-frame NIKKOR Z 70–200mm f/2.8 VR S is the second lens in the Nikon mirrorless family to be released. Whether shooting sports, events, or reportage, this S-Line telephoto zoom lens covers all the bases for stills and video. Focusing is fast, smooth, and silent. Sharpness is outstanding throughout the frame—even when shooting at the widest aperture. When shooting video, focus breathing is all but eliminated.
In a step forward for optical performance, both of these pro-grade lenses use Nikon’s new SR glass, as well as ED glass to combat chromatic aberration. As a result, colour fringing is greatly reduced, and harder-to-control blue light (short wavelength spectrum) is thoroughly compensated for. Images are sharper than ever before and contrast is exceptional.
