The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm F4G ED VR is a relatively lightweight telephoto zoom lens with a constant maximum aperture of F4, designed for use on Nikon's FX (full-frame) and DX (APS-C) DSLRs. On a cropped sensor, this lens covers an effective focal range of 105-300m. The 70-200mm F4 includes Nikon's 'third generation' vibration reduction, which allows for sharp hand-held images at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Optical construction comprises 20 elements in 14 groups, including three ED (extra low-dispersion) glass elements, one HRI (high refractive index) element. We like this lens for its portability, excellent image quality, and effective image stabilization.

best rating !! replace please my previous post!!
I bought this lens in Nov.2012. The second lens (after micro 60mm) I'm using, which has sufficient resolution for D800, It is incredibly sharp and the VR works great! The upgrade from 80-200 f/2,8D ED is very visible. Problems: none
Superb (and long overdue) Dark Side tele-zoom
Would get five stars if the collar came with it. Wonderful addition to the pro-level (without designation) f4 VR lineup. Like the 24-120/4 VR, this lens fills a gap that Canon has had solutions for for years. I personally, except from a financial standpoint, don't understand why Canon chose to have four variations of the 70-200 focal length, but I've always been impressed that they do. I've owned all of them, some twice. When I moved to the Dark Side in 2008, I immediately missed my f4 L ...
excellent in every way:-P-- xelarox
I recently purchased a Nikon 70-200 f/4, but i think there is something not right with the captured images, i hope someone can help either by any known dedicated forum or by telling me with the upload image if there is something wrong with... what do you call this thing on the left top corner and right down corner ( kind of a blur) but weird... Thank you in advance guys
Will the D600 + 70-200 F4 fit?
I'm trying to find a minimalistic bag for my D600 + 3 lenses and flash. I would want one where I could store my longest lens attached to the camera, which would be the 70-200 F4. Anyone have a bag they would recommend? Right now I'm really interested in the Lowepro Slingshot 202AW, but I'm not sure if it will be wide enough to fit the camera in the normal way where it's easily accessible. Anyone have any other good suggestions?
Since nobody is giving you answers this would be my suggestion. You can look up the lens dimensions. Read reviews on a site like b&h photo for the bag. People always say what they are able to fit. Hopefully some will mention that lens, or a larger lens like the 2.8, will fit in there attached. I know that is not immediately helpful, but this is what I would do if nobody was able to respond.

Yea, I guess it's tough to find this exact combination since the lens is rather new. I'll keep looking around, or if not, see if I can find a camera shop with a good stock, bring all my stuff, and try them out :). Thank you for replying though Continue Reading
D600 vs D800e vs D7100 with 70-200 f4 VR & TC 2.0III?
Background : (1) Recently moved to 70-200 f4 VR with TC 2.0III, as I just have found 2.8 lenses too heavy for long hand held walking/ hiking & shooting. At f5.6 with 2.8 lenses the focus was great with D800E. (1) Traded my backup D7000 in for a D7100 knowing that the D7100 will focus on center focus point at f8. However, I have found in initial shooting in outdoors & bright Spring light that the focus is not as fast as I would have expected. (2) Please note that this is a rather specific series of questions related to new 70-200 f4 VR & TC 2.0III
Really would appreciate any experience especially re my bottom line question if not the first three questions above. (1) Not taking any other points into consideration, would I expect faster and more flexible focus results from D600 as backup camera as compared to D7100 ... with 70-200 f4 VR & TC 2.0III? Just a few D7100 samples from today ... but seriously considering whether the D600 would have better focus performance, thus the post here. Not really looking for a Dx vs FX discussion. http://jbipix.com/?s=d7100 Also looking fwd to Monday when I get my D800E back from Nikon so I can compare focus results with the combination above. Best of my D800e ... before it went away to Nikon for calibration and new lens mount. http://jbipix.com/?s=d800e Cheers and thanks for any feedback! Continue Reading
Yes . . . and no. What is your intended use??????? General use, D600. Birds in flight, some distant action shots (football), D7100. Actually, I would NOT recommend this combo. F8, f11, and f16 would become your f stop choices!!!!!! To add to the confusion, your crop factor becomes 200mm vs 300mm. Apples and oranges. Question 4 - Bottom line question. Not taking any other points into consideration, would I expect faster and more flexible focus results from D600 as backup camera as compared to D7100 ... with 70-200 f4 VR & TC 2.0III?
