Overview

Obsession for Details. Uncompromising Zoom.

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 including parfocal support for passionate cinematographers and videographers. Class-leading close focus ability. Superior aberration suppression. And the most comprehensive optical VR image stabilization in the history of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses.

The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S sets an impressive new standard for fast telephoto zoom lenses optimized for the next generation of Nikon's advanced mirrorless cameras.


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.


Blurred so beautifully

Attached to the Z Mount, the largest full frame lens mount in the industry, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is capable of producing stunning bokeh qualities beyond the capabilities of comparable lenses.


Steadier than ever

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.


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.

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.

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, virtually unheard of in a telephoto zoom of this focal range.

Parfocal performance.

For cinematographers who prefer to manually focus, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S beautifully maintains sharp focus on a subject while zooming in or out. Parfocal lenses also virtually eliminate focus breathing for smooth focus transitions that don't change the apparent angle of view.

Highly Cinematic
A remarkable lens for video applications.

Parfocal support for maintaining manual focus while zooming. Smooth, silent AF with virtually no focus breathing. Standard 77mm filter support.

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.

*In-body image stabilization not available in all Z series cameras.


Superior colour 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.


The finest of details

The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S captures astoundingly sharp images with captivating resolution and glorious clarity all the way to the edges of the frame. It's superior VR performance ensures exceptional sharpness when shooting handheld. And to combat colour fringing while close focusing, an all-new multi-focusing system delivers fast, accurate autofocusing while drastically reducing aberrations.

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.

Dust and Drip resistant

Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.

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.

Fluorine keeps it clean

Fluorine Coat, Nikon's proprietary dust, dirt and moisture repellent, provides enhanced antifouling performance, ensuring easy removal of all types of grime from the lens surface—a life-saver when shooting in harsh conditions.

Next-Generation Z Design and Optics.

Designed and optimized to take full advantage of the Z system's larger mount, Z lenses gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the center of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Video recording is clean and smooth with highly minimized focus breathing and reduced wobbling. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customized to your individual shooting style and so much more. Z lenses are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for complete freedom in image creation.

S-Line
NIKKOR quality at its absolute best.

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. Superior performance and resolution. Sophisticated features and operability. 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.
