AF-S NIKKOR 200mm f/2G ED VR II: A portrait lens for the pros
Nikon's new 200mm f/2G (300mm DX equivalent) lens is an update to the current 200mm f/2 lens, adding Nikon's VR II image stabilization system as well as a few other new features. It also joins Nikon's other 200mm lens, a Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4D lens.
The Vibration Reduction is capable of correcting up to four stops to helps create blur-free images and also features a Tripod Detection Mode which helps compensate for the minor shakes that can happen when the camera is mounted.
It is constructed of 13 optical lens elements, including three Extra-low Dispersion elements and one Super ED glass element, which helps to explain it's pro-only price tag. Additionally it features Nikon's Internal Focusing system, which allows the glass elements to move without changing the length of the barrel. Expect to start seeing it on store shelves in early October for $5999.95.
