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

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    very sharp, very fast AF, close min. focusing distance(less than 1m), light, VR,
    made out of plastic, no weather sealing

    This lens is for everyone who doesn't need f2.8. They say that the 2.8 VR II is sharper, but I can't imagine it being a noticable difference because this is supersharp. It seems to be just as fast at focusing. The VR works perfectly(I was able to get sharp images at 1/4 sec @200mm, standing and without leaning on anything). The thing that impressed me the most was the close min. focusing distance(it seems to be less than 1m), it's very useful. I only wish it was built a bit tougher but it's probably because I'm comparing it to my old AF 80-200 2.8 D which was like a tank :).
