  1. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is approximately 110 g lighter than the current AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
  2. The lens structure provides weather-resistant performance with anti-dust and waterdrop-resistant capabilities. The weather-resistant performance combined with the reduced weight makes this lens highly agile equipment that supports shooting in diverse environments.
  3. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR supports even better resolution throughout the entire zoom range than the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II.
  4. Adoption of one fluorite, one High Refractive Index (HRI) lens, and six ED glass elements provides effective compensation for a variety of aberration. This, in conjunction with ghost- and flare-reducing Nano Crystal Coat, ensures the ultimate in rendering characteristics.
  5. The Vibration Reduction (VR) function ensures a stable viewfinder image that makes it easy to track even fast and erratically moving subjects. Further, it is equipped with SPORT mode, which maintains focus on rapidly moving subjects, even with high-speed continuous shooting.
  6. In comparison with the current AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, reduction of the minimum focus distance and increase in the maximum reproduction ratio enable photographic expression similar to close-up shooting.
  7. The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR very successfully combines agility with amazing optical performance throughout the most frequently used zoom range.
