PhotoPlus Expo 2012: Nikon Unveils New AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR Lens

Posted by on Wednesday October 24, 2012 | Uncategorized

Nikon unveiled the new AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR lens this morning. The lens, which Nikon says is the company’s first with up to five stops of image stabilization, goes on sale in November for $1,399.95.

The new AF-S 70-200mm f/4G is the first NIKKOR lens to feature the third generation of Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) technology.

Nikon is hoping the lens will appeal to photographers who may have purchased the new Nikon D600, a lower priced full-frame digital SLR aimed at photo enthusiasts.

“It’s perfect for that user,” Steve Heiner, Nikon’s Senior Technical Manager, said during a pre-release press briefing with PDN. “It’s at almost half the price of the F/2.8 version (of the same focal length lens) but has similar weatherproofing and the build quality is on same level.”
