    Reminder this will be an *E LENS* .... so most Nikon bodies PRE AUG 2007 will not work properly. (i.e. the D300 / D3 family and later are GOOD to go)

    Thumbs up Re: READY ! - AF-S NIKKOR 70200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens

    Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens

    US price: $2799.95

    Primary features:

    Adoption of fluorite and High Refractive Index (HRI) lens elements, as well as a magnesium-alloy parts ensure superior agility with a lighter weight compared to the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
    Thorough adoption of anti-dust and waterdrop-resistant structure with which all moving parts of the lens barrel are sealed against dust and water droplets
    Nikon's exclusive fluorine coat has been applied to the external surface of the front lens element
    This highly durable fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease, and dirt, and has superior anti-reflection characteristics that contribute to the capture of clear images
    Consistently superior resolution, all the way to the edges of the frame, throughout the entire zoom range
    Nano Crystal Coat adopted for its superior anti-reflection effects and effective reduction of ghost and flare for sharp, clear images
    Vibration Reduction (VR) function optimized for sports photography with built-in SPORT mode, which is also effective with movie recording
    This enables comfortable high-speed continuous shooting with no drop in frame rate or increase in release time lag
    VR performance immediately after the camera is turned on has been greatly increased compared to the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
    In NORMAL mode, the VR function provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops* faster with measurement in accordance with CIPA standards
    With the employment of a newly developed algorithm, barrel vibration transmitted to the hands and sound caused when the AF drive starts/stops are remarkably reduced and suppressed
    AF tracking performance for subjects with unpredictable movement, including those whose speed of movement changes and those that move quickly toward the camera, has been increased
    Adoption of an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism enables stable exposure control, even with high-speed continuous shooting
    Compared to the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, minimum focus distance throughout the entire zoom range is reduced from 1.4 m to 1.1 m, and maximum reproduction ratio increased from 0.11x to 0.21x
    Positioning of the zoom ring near the front of the lens and the focus ring closer to the mount ensures a better grip when shooting
    Four focus function buttons that enable quick and certain focusing are positioned so that they are readily accessible regardless of shooting orientation (horizontal or vertical)
    Extremely durable bearings adopted for the tripod collar ring, enabling quick and smooth switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientation

    Can't believe they have swapped the focus and Zoom rings around.

    This is a possible non-buy for me! ( talk about ruining your hand held stability. )

    Some working pro's out there have also made the same comment.

    Great time to buy some mint VR2 models in CS now folks. 👍🏻

    Nice! I think Canon still has the widest at 17mm.
    What is the price for this Nikon PC 19mm lens?

    Comparing the MTF charts from this and the prior model :

    " we can see that the new design is optimized towards yielding more even performance on the 70-200mm f/2.8E VR – the lens starts out a hair worse in the center, but look at how much better the lens looks outside the center frame. The lens looks vastly better in comparison to its predecessor there. Even the extreme edges look slightly better in comparison. Contrast is also improved on the new lens, with much more even performance, especially towards the edges of the frame. "
