The Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens will be a popular choice for wedding, portrait, sports and wildlife photographers. Nikon have leveraged their experience from the multiple iterations of 70-200mm F-Mount lenses to make the Z-Mount version the best ever.
Constant f/2.8 Max Aperture
With its versatility for shooting a decent variety of shots at a constant f/2.8 aperture, the Z lens ensures you don’t have to compromise versatility for quality. The ultimate go-to for many wedding photographers, it enables you to shoot wide establishing style shots and tightly framed, shallow depth-of-field images all from the same shooting position.
High-Quality Internal Lens Construction
Internally, the lens uses a stunning 21 elements in 18 groups including 6 ED elements, 2 aspherical elements, 1 fluorite element and a SR element to ensure maximum image quality and superior colour reproduction.
Optical Vibration Reduction Technology
A built-in Optical VR function eliminates camera shake across 5-axis of movement. This equates to an effect 5.5 stop advantage when shooting handheld, further bolstering the lens’ image quality and sharpness. Especially useful at the telephoto range of the zoom, the optical vibration reduction also offers improved shooting versatility, allowing you to capture difficult lighting conditions without having to use a tripod.
NANO & ARNEO Anti-Reflective Coatings
The Z 70-200mm also utilises NANO Crystal and ARNEO Coatings to effectively eliminate flare, ghosting, fringing and internal reflection for both the vertical and diagonal direction. The end result is uncompromising detail and a new standard for backlighting control.
Fast, Accurate AF Performance
Improvements in Nikon’s multi-drive AF system delivers consistent, lighting fast auto focus performance. When paired with the AF capabilities of the Nikon Z mirrorless camera range, the lens is up to the task of capturing those candid moments during a wedding or those fleeting scenes when shooting fast-paced action sports.
Suitable for Video Recording
The lens’ stepping motor AF design means near-silent operation. Perfect for video shooters and professionals working in noise sensitive environments, it ensures focusing is not picked up by your cameras internal microphone for distraction-free viewing and less work in post-production.
Built-in Control Ring
Common to all Nikkor Z lenses, the 70-20mm f/2.8 VR Lens incorporates a control ring in its design. Separate from the focusing ring, the control ring acts as a shortcut to your most common settings. In conjunction with a OLED info panel, it offers a fast, intuitive way for you to control settings like aperture, ISO and exposure compensation without having to look away from the viewfinder.
Weather Sealed Construction
Targeting pro users who may need to shoot in even the most physically demanding conditions, the lens is constructed with comprehensive weather sealing making it dust and splash resistant for maximum reliability.
Designed for the Uncompromising Professional
Designed from the ground up specifically for the Nikon Z mirrorless camera range, the Nikkor Z 70-200mm lens is part of Nikon’s flagship S-Line range, a designation reserved for lenses that embody the uncompromising image and build quality that Nikon professionals have come to rely on for decades.
