Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII ED

Originally published: April 2, 2011

For the telephoto range, I had initially bought the Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Lens. However this became to slow for some of the shooting I was doing. When I was outside in bright sunlight it was able to take wonderfully sharp images at fast shutter-speeds.

Anyway it can take great pictures in this environment however it cannot do stage photography or even photography in lowlight. Enter the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII ED. It is faster and even though it has less zoom it is a superior lens. It autofocuses like a champ and if your willing to carry the extra weight it is the best you can get. It is the third in final lens in Nikons pro line of lenses. Starting with the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 ED, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 ED and the. It does its job very well and if you find your self having issues taking photos in low light with your telephoto lens, go and pick one of these up.
