  • Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF VR AF-S Nikkor

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Extremely sharp and fast.

    A question actually !

    This lens has served me brilliantly with my D200. However I want to upgrade to a D700 (I shoot my son who is a gymnast, in challenging conditions - gymnast is fast moving & lighting is not brilliant).

    There seems to be mixed views on the 70-200VR being used with a FF camera. I can appreciate that the crop factor seen with the D200/300 is lost .... BUT does this lens with the D700 mean that the effective sensor is reduced to 5.1 Megapixels ??

    Some reviews suggest that it is fantastic with the D700, some suggest that the effective resolution is reduced to 5.1 Megapixels.

    Can anyone shed light on this issue ?

    Thank You
