New Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II coming tomorrow

Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR

I should be receiving an evaluation copy of the Nikon AF-S 70-200/2.8G ED VR II tomorrow, courtesy of B&H Photo (in stock ).

I’m hearing some positive things about the new “II” version, but I’ll of course put it through its paces in my own fashion, especially at the crucial apertures of f/2.8 and f/4.

The original Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR was a dud on the full-frame Nikon D3/D3x/D700, but the new “II” version promises better things, and that is good, because the day of 30 megapixel DSLRs can’t be far off now.

I expect the 70-200VR to be used primarily in the 135-200mm range, so that’s where I’ll be focusing my efforts. Whether the latest VR (vibration reduction) is more effective will also be of interest. The VR technology is an area I researched in The Sharpest Image, now part of DAP— recommended reading for VR and much more.
