An extremely versatile and reliable telephoto lens, the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S features a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, perfect for working in challenging lighting conditions. Generate clean, sharp images from edge-to-edge, with increased control over depth of field. Ideal for shooting sports, weddings and wildlife, this 70-200mm zoom produces beautiful portraits and close-ups too, with an extremely short minimum focusing distance of just over 19” at the wide end. An array of elements ensures accurate color and clear imagery, and extensive coatings help prevent unwanted effects caused by incidental light or other environmental issues. VR technology provides unmatched image stabilization, and a stepping AF motor keeps the autofocus quiet and quick. For use in cinematography, the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens also features parfocal support for maintaining manual focus while zooming.
Crystal clear images and bright, accurate color
Six Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements and one Fluorite Lens (FL) element in the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens work together to help minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing. A Short-wavelength Refractive (SR) element controls short-wavelength light, further increasing color accuracy. Two aspherical elements reduce distortion, improving overall image clarity. Nikon’s Super Integrating Coating on lens elements features a Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat to help eliminate incidental light that can cause unwanted ghosting, reflections and flare, as well as Fluorine Coat, Nikon’s proprietary dust, dirt and moisture repellant.
Shoot steady stills and video
Built-in optical Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization in the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens is effective to an unparalleled 5.5 stops, ensuring extraordinarily sharp imagery when shooting handheld. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) can also be enabled for added stability during video shooting.
Quick, quiet autofocus
The ultra-quiet stepping motor (STM) in the Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens provides fast, smooth and precise autofocus, all while maintaining near-silent performance, making this lens ideal for still photography as well as video.
The Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens is ideal for cinematographers who prefer to manually focus while shooting. This lens maintains sharp focus on a subject while zooming in or out, virtually eliminating focus breathing for smooth transitions.
