Nikon NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens

The highly-desirable 70-200mm telephoto zoom has come to the Z series. Sports, concerts, weddings, wildlife, portraiture and so much more—all with the incredible low light performance of an f/2.8 made only better by the optically superior Z mount. Optical advancements support passionate cinematographers and videographers. The lens offers class-leading close focus ability and superior aberration suppression. Plus, it features the most comprehensive optical VR image stabilization in the history of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses.

Superior Performance and Resolution

At the top of the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lens lineup, S-Line lenses push Nikon’s tradition of optical excellence and innovation to unprecedented new heights. It offers superior performance and resolution, sophisticated features and operability, and specialized technologies and reliability enhancements. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards.

Class-Leading Close Focusing

For greater framing versatility, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is capable of extremely short minimum focusing distances, allowing the lens' speed and performance enhancements to be realized in remarkably tight shooting scenarios. At 70mm, focus can be achieved as close as 0.5m from the subject.

Finest of Details

The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S captures astoundingly sharp images with edge to edge clarity. Its superior VR performance ensures exceptional sharpness when shooting handheld. To combat color fringing while close focusing, an all-new multi-focusing system delivers fast, accurate autofocusing while drastically reducing aberrations.

Smooth, Fast and Quiet Autofocus

Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor (STM), autofocusing is fast, silent and incredibly accurate. Where camera noise can be distracting or problematic—street photography, wedding ceremonies, wildlife or on video productions—STM is a silent partner.

Superior Color and Sharpness

Ultimate aberration correction—virtually zero flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical and axial aberrations, even at the far edges of the frame. A new SR (Short-wavelength Refractive) glass element further combats chromatic aberrations caused by challenging short-wavelength light.

Brilliant in Low Light

The exceptional combination of a bright f/2.8 aperture, high resolution NIKKOR optics and the brilliant Z mount makes the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S a tireless low light performer capable of clean, sharp images and faster shutter speeds in dark scenes and interiors.

Frame-Filling Brightness

One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame, for bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting. The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is capable of producing stunning bokeh qualities beyond the capabilities of comparable lenses.

VR Image Stabilization

With built-in optical VR image stabilization effective for up to an unprecedented 5.5 stops and Z series' high performance in-body image stabilization, tack-sharp images are easily achieved when shooting handheld. During video shooting, additional electronic VR (e-VR) can be enabled for even greater stability.

Highly-Cinematic

The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S provides smooth, silent AF with virtually no focus breathing. Superior optical image stabilization combines with the camera's in-body image stabilization and Electronic VR. All of this added to the versatility of the highly useful 70-200mm focal range. The lens accepts standard 77mm filters.

Customizable Control Ring

The control ring can be used for quiet aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording or situations where complete silence is critical), exposure compensation or ISO adjustments.

Customizable Shortcut Buttons

The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S features two convenient customizable Fn buttons right on the lens barrel. Set them to streamline your shooting experience—preview depth of field, lock focus, magnify to confirm focus and more.

Lens Information Panel

A dimmable, built-in EL (Electroluminescent) display panel allows quick, convenient confirmation of aperture, focal length, focus distance and depth-of-field, even in dark situations.

Optimal Anti-Reflective Performance

When subjects are backlit, incidental light can streak across the frame causing unwanted ghosting, reflections and flare. To counteract these anomalies and ensure crisp, clean images, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S employs two of Nikon’s most advanced lens coatings: Nano Crystal Coat for eliminating incidental light from a diagonal direction and ARNEO Coat for eliminating incidental light from a vertical direction.
