AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR

Nikon Corporation will delight the world of photography with the latest
addition to the telephoto zoom lens family: the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED
VR. Compatible with the Nikon FX format, it covers the 70-200mm range of focal
lengths with a fixed maximum aperture of f/4.

The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR joins the ultra wide-angle AF-S NIKKOR
16-35mm f/4G ED VR and normal zoom AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR in f/4

maximum aperture lens series that forms the core of NIKKOR FX-format lenses.

Despite covering the 70mm to 200mm range of focal lengths, it boasts a closest
focusing distance of approximately one meter, as well as consistently superior
rendering with focusing from infinity to close-up, making it an excellent lens
for a wide variety of scenes. Its compact size and light weight make it
portable, offering a practical choice for hand-held shooting wherever needed.
It adopts a number of exclusive Nikon technologies including Nano Crystal Coat
that prevents internal reflections that cause ghost and flare, a built-in
Vibration Reduction (VR) system that provides camera shake compensation
equivalent to a five-step increase in shutter speed, and a Silent Wave Motor
(SWM) for extremely quiet autofocusing.

With the release of the new Nikon D4, Nikon D800 and D800E, and Nikon D600
FX-format digital-SLR cameras in 2012, Nikon continues to develop
high-performance NIKKOR lenses that make the most of the superior resolution
and image quality offered by these cameras. Nikon will continue to respond to
the demands and expectations of the photographers for more advanced
photographic capabilities by releasing highly functional, high-performance
lenses to expand and strengthen the NIKKOR lineup.
