Get Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR at B&H Photo.
The more I shoot the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 FL ED VR the more it impresses me.
Surely it is the finest zoom Nikon has ever produced, and one that kicks the crap out of many a prime lens (and makes lenses like the Sony 70-200 look positively second rate). I have no doubt this is the finest 70-200 zoom on the market today. And the way the D810 nails focus with this thing is very impressive.
Includes images up to full resolution from f/2.8 through f/8, with the crops in color.
The 70-200/2.8E is so good that I really had to resort to nitpicking. Accordingly, the series also shows corrected and uncorrected lateral chromatic aberration.
One might say that the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is expensive and indeed it is in absolute terms. But rivalling most primes and covering the 70-200mm range, it offers huge value. I am loathe to shoot most zooms, but the 70-200/2.8E just might have to be the first exception.
