  • Nikon 70-200mm f/4G ED VR AF-S Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharp, fast and my arm doesn't fall off from holding it
    still a little heavy

    I switched from a canon setup to a D800 recently, not realizing how much money i had to spend and how much weightlifting i needed to do if i wanted to use their best zooms.
    I've tried both the 24-70 2.8 and the 70-200 2.8 - both were far to heavy for me leave on the camera all day for the kind of shooting i do.
    I ordered the 70-200 f4 the day it was announced, keeping my fingers crossed that it would be a good lens because Nikon has made some problematic zoom lenses recently. Fortunately, they got this one right. I've shot in candle light handheld and still gotten 4 out of 5 sharp images with moving targets.
    Very satisfied. Now if Nikon could just make a cheaper, lighter solid mid range i could put my primes away.
